Book your customized Self-Drive 4x4 vacation with Kalahari 4x4 Hire

In operation since 1990, we know our way around this beautiful part of South Africa. Travelling has always been our passion and we’ve been looking for ways to show more of our friends the hidden treasures we got to know in the Kalahari Desert.

We offer a complete range of camping equipment for our vehicles including tents, cutlery, bedding, fridges and other camping necessities. 

Although Upington offers the perfect base to travel from, we offer deliveries and pick-ups all over South Africa for your convenience. Many people even find Upington the perfect starting point for their holiday to Namibia and beyond. Even Botswana is now easily accessible through the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

Eat under the stars, sleep over or enjoy our rich heritage. The area is a refuge for outdoor fanatics and adventurers with unique flora and picturesque scenery all around.

Please do not hesitate to enquire about any routes. We really look forward in assisting you in planning your much needed getaway.
