Right from the beginning the seat next to the driver became very hot while driving but because the battery is under the seat we thought it was "normal".

Mr. Carel Pienaar was called a crook by ‘stevmar20’ on 12/8/2015 (TripAdvisor). Unfortunately I can only confirm this two months after our departure. We had a very nice trip, even when the quality of the equipment was not up to date (gauge did not work, gas-cooker neither, one chair was broken, table was very bad, ladders to the tents were...

3 years in a row we rented a Toyota Hilux at "South Africa 4 x 4". And next year…. we go again! It is a very reliable organization that always comply with their agreements. Every time the car was "complete" ready for us. The price-quality is good. We were driving in Zimbabwe, Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa and... More
