If you're thinking of a self-drive safari you should definitely do it! Just use a different company. We recently spent 25 days with a SA4x4 vehicle, not having read the negative reviews carefully. The company has some friendly employees but is disorganized at best, and...More

My advice is not to book with this company. The booking process, payment, collecting the car are all fine. So, if the vacation is one happy flow, this will be a great company. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. We got a car which...More
