RV rental Johannesburg, South Africa

Johannesburg is often used as a gateway to exploring South Africa’s wilderness areas. RV rental Johannesburg is one of the best ways to explore the game parks and reserves situated outside the city, all at your own leisure.

Best time to visit

If you’re using Johannesburg as a base to explore the wildlife reserves outside of the city, then it’s best to travel during the dry winter months of May to September.

Around the area

Situated a mere two hours away from Johannesburg, the Pilanesberg Nature Reserve is home to all the Big Five wildlife, despite it only being a fraction of the Kruger National Park’s size. It’s also home to other wildlife species such as cheetah, wild dog and brown hyena.

Getting around

RV rental Johannesburg is by far the best way to explore the wilderness areas outside of the city. It provides you with the freedom and independence to plan your own holiday, at your own leisure.

Length of stay
