Experience with Bushtrackers was simply perfect!! Thinking back of our experience, the entire support/service from Bushtrackers started weeks before we arrived, continued with preparation of all the necessary cross-border documentation, smooth pick up of the car, and it finished in Cape Town with the return process where we were provided with a great care and even got a lift to a hotel. We did not experience any single problem with the car during more than 6000km trip. All in all, our honeymoon roadtrip (RSA-Botswana-Namibia-RSA-with a short stop in Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls) was an awesome and exceptional time for us. We really enjoyed it as much as we could. And, many things could have turned into something completely different unless we had had such a reliable vehicle (fully equipped with all you need to enjoy stay in the bush and survive), especially in places where you find yourself in the middle of pure nowhere :-). If you consider such a trip, I strolngly recommended Bushtrackers as a great company to rent a car from - Martin Maikl-off, October 2016

Experience was excellent with Bushtrackers! Two of us rented a quad cab hilux for almost two weeks to travel around Botswana's highways and parks. Got two tents (one for each of us) and they were better than expected. I usually don't sleep well in tents, but I had absolutely no problems with these ones, loved them. The vehicle was superb. I personally think it was the best kitted out of all the self-drive pickups we saw, and we saw plenty. The lift kit was definitely required for the sand, and we had perfect tires for the whole trip (most companies only give you highway tires, but we had ATs). A full thickness bull-bar and sump guard setup gave me plenty of confidence that this thing could keep us moving where we wanted. Communication (even from an ocean and continent away) was great. Quick responses and quotes. Helped us decide on certain options. We did have one slight miscommunication, but once pointed out it was handled very quickly and professionally. These are the things that make me appreciate a company well over others. They even helped us setup taxi transfers from their location. Would highly recommend this setup to anyone looking for a self-drive experience. - Alex Clow, September 2016

As usual (it was the third time I used Bushtrackers services) everything was perfect. Véhicules are perfect to drive along tarred , gravel and sometimes very poor rocky roads. With this car I travelled all along the Botswana two times and this year I went to South Namibia . The communication is very good and you can ask everything and will get an accurate answer quickly. I highly recommend Bushtrackers Africa for those who want to get a good customer service, a good 4X4 car and of course a competitive price. Thank you so much for that :-) Bushtrackers vous offre des véhicules de qualité, avec un service irréprochable, une communication parfaite que ce soit avant ou pendant la location. Je recommande vivement Bushtrackers Africa à quiconque. Pierre Rovasio, August 2016

After hiring from other companies: Bushtracker is the BEST. The vehicles are made for one purpose: Easy Camping in the Wilderness – and getting you there. The Vehicles they have are using perfectly adjusted shock absorbers – you will feel the difference on a bad PAD – especially if its several hours of not being shaken around like the others. Inventory is GREAT and minimalistic to others – reduced to the things you will need. Its simple (just boxes you can pull out and bring back) – fridge and some sack for the Bedstuff. That’s it. But that’s the advantage – you will get a light car for a reasonable amount of money. Not overstuffed with things you will never (really) need. If you need something more: ask for it – they will provide it to you (for free). Guaranteed. Sent at least 20 people over the last year to Bushtrackers – no one had any bad story to tell. Oh: Let us not forget Penny and Heather. Both will be the finest hosts you can imagine and will take as much time as you want them to spend to feel save and happy with the car. Those two jewels are may be the best advantage to other companies, when you book with Bushtracker!!! All the best from Germany, Amos 6 out of 5 stars available. Every time again! - Max Power, April 2016

This is the fifth time I rent from Bushtrackers. As always the car was totaly in order. It was a Hilux singlecap, with a 3 liter engine. Done 30 000 km and in perfect order.  - Richard Wagner, March 2016

Excellent service, excellent cars. Rented a Hilux double cab with tents and it was such a great adventure we had! No problems whatsoever with the car, almost new. Heather and the team were lovely and very helpful at all times. Would rent again from them!  - Mimi Perker, January 2016

This company is the best 4x4 hire in South Africa! 2 city slickers (dad and I) hired a Toyota Hilux for a road trip through Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa.Great service even while we were on the road! Would highly recommend! - Facebook user

Thanks to Heather and Bushtrackers for a very enjoyable holiday.  South Africa ,Botswana and Zimbabwe over 4 weeks 4500+ kms without a second of trouble with the vehicle.  I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to rent a 4x4 camper . - truck in South Africa! - Phil Sharpe, January 2015

I cannot recommend Bushtrackers highly enough. Not only was the fully equipped truck we rented top notch, but the level of service from Heather and her team was impeccable. As Africa/offroad novices, we really appreciated the advice we got on everything from how to escape from a sand-trap to which bush camps in Botswana were worth checking out. Thanks team! - Dave Taylor, October 2014

Excellent people and car!! We rented a fully equipped Toyota Hilux pretty new and we drove through Botswana and Zimbabwe for about 5000 km. We went to Moremi and Chobe, driving in deep sand and crossing rivers; the car was very reliable and strong. The camping equipment was great, we took nothing from home!!  Thank you Bushtrackers, unforgettable and safe trip!!! - Paolo Guidali, October 2014

We just completed an epic 4500klms + trip across South Africa, Botswana, Vic Falls (Zimbabwe, & Namibia. While there is a lot of 4×4 car rentals in South Africa, At Bushtrackes they are a cut above the rest, their fleet is new, well adapted for the tough African terrain in true sense. Heather the lady at the office gave us all the info we needed before the trip. We definitely highly recommend them to anyone planning Southern Africa wilderness self drive trip. - Cosmos O'Ndebele, September 2014

Outstanding vehicles, great people to deal with. I would recommend to anyone, I can't wait to come back to South Africa and use bushtrackers again. - Justin Giggle, September 2014

Top service from the very beginning including responsive to every email and call during the booking process, and very welcoming when we turned up. Vehicle and gear was in excellent condition - couldn't think of an extra thing apart from beer coolers! Staff are a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended. - Aisha Isard, August 2014
