The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, with an abundance of flora and fauna sightings in the Kalahari Desert, offers a beautiful and diverse wildlife escape to travellers looking to explore the magnificence that this South African attraction has to offer.
Composed of red sand dunes, dry riverbeds and countless 4X4 trails, the Kalahari terrain, much like the bright Kalahari sun, presents harsh conditions not suitable for regular vehicles looking to explore the area.
As a result, Oryx 4×4 car hire, the only 4X4 rental company in the Kalahari area, was launched in 2020 as an alternative solution to tourists looking to experience what the Park has to offer with no limitations.
Established by local businessman, SJ Koortzen, who is the hospitality magnate behind Kgalagadi Lifestyle Lodge and Black Mane Butcher & Grill – both of which are situated only five kilometres from the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park – Oryx 4X4 provides a fleet of vehicles, at competitive prices, for travellers to the Kalahari.
Whether guests and tourists choose to fly into the area using Kgalagadi Lifestyle Lodge’s landing airstrip, require transfer pick-ups from Upington Airport, or arrive by car and choose to utilise a 4X4 for experiencing the Park, Oryx 4X4 offers a range of all-terrain vehicles for hire, including the Toyota Hilux 2.4 Diesel Double Cab 4X4 Automatic, Toyota Fortuner 2.4 Diesel 4×4, Mahindra 2.2 Diesel 4X4 Single Cab and Volkswagen Kombi – 8-seater Diesel 2X4.
All vehicles hired through Oryx 4X4 offer users unlimited mileage to travel, with a full tank of fuel and a choice of standard excess or super excess cover.
Whether you’re looking to enjoy bird spotting or search for some of the Park’s greatest predators, such as cheetah, leopard, brown and spotted hyena and the black-maned lion, make Oryx 4X4 part of your travel plans to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park to ensure no limitations to your wildlife experience.
