4x4with Bushlore

7 posts in this topic

I am just a couple of clicks away from hiring a Toyota Hilux 4x4 with camping equipment from Bushlore for our 6 weeks in feb/march.

They charge 920 Rand a Day, I haven't been able to find that better. Also they have a pretty good rep on tripadvisor and in general and they seem very professionel. But just to be on the safe, I wanna hear from if anyone have first hand experience with Bushlore.

 

So anyone have something good or bad to say about Bushlore?

 

Already booked : :)

6-9 march Kalahari Tented Camp

10-12 Nossob Rest Camp

Hello, I rented from Bushlore last year and was very pleased with their car, so much so that I am renting from them this year as well and hoping for the same experience. Last year (and for quite a few other self drives) I rented a Hilux - always my first choice due to various reasons. This year I will be renting a Land Cruiser simply because they had run out of Hilux cars ...

We've got our own vehicle in South Africa, but a few of our friends have rented with Bushlore and never had any problems with them. In fact, we have friends coming from Australia this weekend and they're renting a Bushlore Land Cruiser (though I'd still always go with a Defender!).

Edited: I have been asked to remove this content by the original poster who writes below that they are in further communication with Bushlore.

Edited, as in post #5.


 

Does 'this damage' refer to the dents or the sheared canopy fixing bolts? The latter happened during your trip right? Or at least you didn't catch it when you inspected the vehicle when picking it up.

"This damage" refers to the dents which were pre-existing. They did not try to say that the sheared bolts were our fault. We are now in further communication so this could yet be resolved amicably.
