Drive with confidence in one of the best equipped 4x4’s available to rent in South Africa. For anyone who does not have their own 4x4, a rent vehicle can be included when booking your safari. thombe SAFARI has decided to use Land Rover Defenders as the vehicle of choice to rent for a number of reasons. The most important one being the extent to which the vehicles are equipped. Not only does it include a fridge, first-aid kit and tent, it even comes with bedding! On top of this, Defenders have exceptional off-road capabilities, are great for photographs and will certainly add to a truE safari experience.
The vehicles provide comfortable packing space for your clothing and your camera gear. All the camping equipment needed on safari is included with the vehicle. Tyre repair kits, cutlery, crockery and chairs are all part of the package to ensure that you can enjoy a comfortable camping trip to your selected destination.
The safaris are not only for people with Land Rovers! Any 4x4 make or model is welcome on all of the safaris. There might also be a safari where you do not need a 4x4. thombe SAFARI prefer to keep the standard of vehicles and their capabilities high as it would be unfair to other visitors to amend a route in the case of bad weather and rough roads. You don’t want to miss out on any photographic opportunity!
Over and above the already included insurance and support, immediate assistance can be provided from thombe SAFARI as the guides are experienced and are familiar with the selected vehicles. An international driving licence is not required for South Africa however; your license must be printed in English. NO former off-road driving experience is needed, you just have to be older then 24 to qualify for driving a selected vehicle.
thombe SAFARI and the guides are responsible off-road drivers and 4x4 enthusiasts. They respect and appreciate nature and do not drive off-road just for the sake of it. It is not only good ethics to obey the rules but also to set an example for others. The main purpose for driving with a 4x4 vehicle is not to drive off-road but rather to be able to gain access to places with unspoilt natural beauty, which is sometimes not possible in normal vehicles.
