My partner and I had a blast in the Jimny, taking it through Kruger for 5 days, and then exploring around the Panorama and Genesis Routes. The camping equipment was top notch and helped us to keep our costs down in Kruger while we opted to do a self-drive safari. The staff went above and beyond to help us out, especially on the last day of the rental period, when an unforeseen circumstance (n.b. it wasn’t a mechanical issue with the Jimny ) almost meant we missed our flight. It was a cost effective and fun rental option that I would recommend to anyone

On our recent 12 day trip through Kruger Park we decided to go with this fantastic Jimny rental and it was excactly what we needed. EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND NOTHING YOU DON’T…couldn’t agree more with your motto. Had a fantastic experience and customer service. Thank you so much and looking forward to our next trip with you.
