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 4x4 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 4x4 fans through an online platform.
2002 – DRIVE SOUTH AFRICA IS BORN
Starting initially as 4x4 buy-back service, the company emerged as an early authority in the 4x4 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 4x4 buy back option, wanting expert advice and short-term 4x4 hire. Drive South Africa decided to turn the outsourcing of 4x4 hiring 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 hire market, with increasing requests for car hire, Drive South Africa incorporated car hire into it’s product catalogue.
2004 – MORE THAN JUST CAR HIRE
Camper hire followed in 2004 and services such as chauffeur hire, transfers and self-drive tours emerged over the course of 2004 and 2005.
