The Drive South Africa story
Every journey has a beginning.
2001 – A LIGHTBULB MOMENT
Steve Conradie embarked on a six-month self-drive African safari, engaging his enthusiasm for 4×4 safaris and his desire to build on his previous African adventures. Upon returning, Steve met Andre Van Kets, a Business Science graduate with fervor for information technology, equally enthusiastic about Africa and the prospect of unlocking the continent to 4×4 fans through an online platform.
2002 – DRIVE SOUTH AFRICA IS BORN
Starting initially as 4×4 buy-back service, the company emerged as an early authority in the 4×4 market, being able to offer comprehensive advice and first-hand experience for journeys into Africa.
2003 – RAPID GROWTH
It wasn’t long before customers came looking for alternative to the 4×4 buy back option, wanting expert advice and short-term 4×4 rentals. Drive South Africa decided to turn the outsourcing of 4×4 rental into an in-house service and in March 2003 began leasing 4-wheel drive vehicles to customers. By June 2003, demand for Drive South Africa’s attentive customer service permeated into the car rental market, with increasing requests for car rental, Drive South Africa incorporated car rental into it’s product catalogue.
2004 – MORE THAN JUST CAR RENTAL
Camper rental followed in 2004 and services such as chauffeur rentals, transfers and self-drive tours emerged over the course of 2004 and 2005.
