4x4 Vehicle Hire by African Explorer

Experts in 4x4 Vehicle Hire, Motorhome Hire, & SUV Hire

For centuries, men and women from far and wide have come to Africa to explore its beautiful hidden treasures. Although, back in the old days, explorers never had the luxuries we possess today, and as such, it made the act of venturing into the African bush both dangerous and arduous.

Times have changed and so have our modes of transport, and this is where African Explorer comes in.

We’re in the business of creating unforgettable safaris for the adventurer at heart. Our range of equipped and un-equipped 4x4s, motorcycles, motorhomes and SUVs will get you where you want to go, and beyond.

We provide a first-rate 4×4 vehicle hire and safari service that will guarantee a tour and safari experience unlike you haven’t experienced before. With a passion for nature and the African bush, our team has the experience and the knowledge to help guide you with everything from which vehicle to choose to which route to take.

We’ll give you sound advice through our years of travel experience. See a few testimonials from some of our past clients or browse through to our available vehicles to see what we have available. Or, if you’re ready to start booking your next 4×4 safari adventure, then click on through to our Book an Adventure page.

“The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa – for he has so much to look forward to.”
Richard Mullin



We had a great rental experience with African Explorer!

The Land Rover Defender was in perfect condition and the owner and his staff did all they could to make us happy.

I will definitely rely on African Explorer again for my next trip in Africa!

The trip has been great and we really enjoyed, especially Botswana, beautiful ! Plenty of animals, and amazing wildlife and landscapes. So different to Spain …

We had no problem at all with the car and everything worked perfectly. We only got stuck twice and we could get out “easily”. And fortunately, we didn´t have to use that huge jack you gave to us (I was scared about it … jajajaja)

The fridge was fine, the tent was fine, the sleeping bags quite light (Maun was freezing and we had to buy 2 blankets), the chairs, the barbecue, plates, etc. etc. everything great. We just used the table once because it was so big we hardly were able to take it out.

We cleaned the car three times during the travel, but it was almost impossible to keep it clean because of the fine dust in Namibia and Botswana.

Once again, we have to thank you for all the efforts you did for finding us a car and fix it with our holidays dates. And also, for your kindness.

Un abrazo

Finally we want to thank you most sincerely for the professional manner in which you have always conducted business with us. It has been a real pleasure and was a major factor in the total success and achievements we made on this journey. We have recommended you to many people on the road and others. We would definitely use your services again and we have plans to return to South Africa on a regular basis. We will forward some photos in due course once we get fully organised!

Thanks for organising my rental of a 1200 GS for the weekend recently.

The arrangements were all made without fuss and you fitted in with my tight schedule by delivering the bike personally to OR Tambo airport in Johannesburg so I could get away for my weekend to Lesotho.

Your prices were competitive but the personal touch added even greater value.

The bike performed faultlessly, the ride was fantastic and when dropped off at your depot on the Monday morning, your driver took me to my required destination in town.

You obviously run a professional show and I will highly recommend you to others. I look forward to the opportunity to do a longer tour on another of your available bikes, or 4WD’s for that matter.
