Windhoek 4x4 Hire

Namibia is a true wilderness, the environment harsh and beautiful, and the terrain rugged and rewarding, few places necessitate a 4wd vehicle more. In the centre of this wild land sits Windhoek, the capital of Namibia and a major entry and exit port to this country. Windhoek 4x4 rental equips adventurers to explore in all directions from the capital city . To the north lie magnificent game parks, including the renowned Etosha Pan. To the West lies the town of Swakopmund, fishing villages and the shipwrecks pickling the skeleton coast. Heading south one will discover the Namib Desert and the undulating dunes that make so many treasured photographs. A trip east will take you into the Kalahari and across Botswana’s border. Namibia’s scope for adventure is staggering, and while some of it is possible in a 2wd vehicle, a 4x4 rental from Windhoek will immensely expand your travel options.

What happens on a game drive?

Game drives are an integral part of any safari. You’ll head out into the wilderness with your trained and knowledgeable guide in one of our specialised vehicles. We have both closed and open-sided vehicles, so everyone is guaranteed a window seat for the best view of the action.

How do I change my wheel on a 4x4 vehicle?

Firstly, you must try and get your vehicle as level as possible. However, once you get your vehicle levelled - place steady rocks around the other three wheels. After that, ensure that the car won't roll or move while you’re changing the tyres. Once you’re done - you may remove the spare wheel.

Before jacking, ensure that you have a nice and securing jacking point underneath the axle. Once you’ve raised the vehicle sufficiently, you may remove the remaining wheel nuts as well as the wheel - and replace it with the spare wheel. Note, It's important to tighten them alternatively, so every second nut can swing across nicely. To know more about changing a wheel on a 4x4 vehicle, watch this video clip - http://bit.ly/2h5daLK

Can money be deposited into the company’s bank account?

Yes, money can be deposited into the company’s bank account.

Can I cross rivers with a 4x4 vehicle?

Crossing through water with a 4x4 vehicle should be done with care. A general rule of thumb is to not try to cross any water source that is deeper than half the wheel.

When crossing a river, always take a look at the terrain around you and walk in the river  before trying to cross it. If you can’t walk or stand in the river, find a different place to cross. Drowning a 4x4 is negligence, and won’t be covered by your vehicle insurance.

When is the best time to visit the Karoo National Park?
