South Africa Campervan Hire
South Africa is well know for its safaris and stunning cities but have you heard about the Garden route or the incredible beaches? Touring in a campervan around South Africa is a voyage of discovery.
If you are feeling nervous about how to go about hiring a campervan then we are here to help. It is a similar process to renting a car but there are a few other considerations to think about. Firstly, where is everybody going to sleep? Not all campervans and motorhomes are laid out inside the same. Some have enough room for six to sleep in three double beds. Others have a mixture of doubles and bunk beds and single beds too.
The larger motorhomes in South Africa all have shower and wc's built in and are fully equipped for sleeping and eating. A small kitchen that is fully equipped is also standard. The range of vehicles does vary from depot to depot. There is a different range between Johannesburg and Cape Town. Further out the vehicles are predominantly 4x4 land cruisers and Toyota hiluxes for those adventurous types who need four wheel drive to explore the game parks and travel on dirt roads.
The sleeping arrangements in the 4wd vehicles are often roof tents and a certain degree of agility is required to climb the exterior ladder to the tents on the roof.
South Africa is home to established international brands of motorhome companies that are also well known in Australia and New Zealand. South Africa also has its own home-grown companies such as Caprivi and Bobo and Roadtrippers. Combined there is a wealth of campervans to choose from to match your needs and budget.
South Africa also has a very high standard of campsites that are competitively priced. We recommend that our customers spend every night in a campsite.
One way hires between depots is possible. Choose from Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, East London, George,Port Elizabeth and Upington. Enter the dates that you want to travel and the pick up and drop off cities and a list of options will appear. Look at the images carefully to see the inside and outside of the campers. A full inventory of what is included in each vehicle is shown. If you have any specific needs, let us know.
South Africa is a country where adventures happen and memories are made. It is a place where you will encounter the unusual, the fascinating and the pure wildness of the African bush. Hiring a camper allows you all the time you need to enjoy the sites. No need to be rushed by a tour guide while you sit and enjoy a sunset over the plains. No need to leave when you have just spotted elephants on the move.
South Africa is a perfect place to introduce adventure to the family. Children revel in seeing real animals in a very real wild environment. Take a good camera and binoculars as you never quite know what will be around the corner.
Our customers have returned with exciting tales and fantastic photographs as the scenes in South Africa are like nowhere else.
