Key differences between 4×4 rental and camper hire:

  • 4x4s are all terrain vehicles designed to go off road, with additional height clearance, low range gearing and 4-wheel drive traction. Fully equipped 4×4 hire come with all the necessities for off-road safari and camping trips. You’ll need to pitch your tents and strike camp at each destination.
  • A Campervan, caravanette or simply a camper, is a self-contained vehicle providing sleeping accommodation as well as transport. The degree to which a campervan is fitted out with features can vary from a simple sleeper vehicle with a small kitchenette, AC power or hook up cable power supply and portable toilet, to an elaborate recreational vehicle equipped to luxurious standards with hot showers, air conditioning and an indoor toilet.

While some of the campervans we rent out are 4×4, these campers are not always designed for off road trails, and there may be restrictions on the type of roads you can travel on.
