Drive Africa Car Rental CompanyDrive Africa is a car rental brokerage company based in Cape Town, South Africa. We are specialized in 4×4 hire, long term car rental, young driver car rental, cross border into many African countries (Zimbabwe, Namibia, Zambia, Swaziland, Botswana, Lesotho and Mozambique),  cash car rental and unlimited mileage car rental for South African citizens as well as foreign visitors.

Drive Africa was initially founded in 1997 as the first “Rental Purchase” car buy-back company in Africa. With over 2000 vehicles sold since inception it was the most successful one to date! The buyback division closed its doors after 17 years of operation at the end of 2013 due to car rentals becoming cheaper and cheaper and it no longer made sense to own a car with all the complications that come with second hand or older cars.

Drive Africa has now evolved into a top class car rental broker company specializing in short and long term rentals of cars at affordable prices. At Drive Africa there is a vehicle to suit every client – student, businessperson, adventurer or family man. We offers affordable, top quality car rental in a professional and personalised environment. With quality and customer safety as the company’s watchwords, all cars we use are new cars not older than 2 years. We specialise in cross border rental and offer the first country outside South Africa free whereas our competitors charge up to R3500.- just to be allowed to drive the rental car in to Mozambique. We have special conditions, can offer zero excess to Non South African drivers and have negotiated very low deposits for all our clients. We have gathered all the information that helps with crossing South Africa’s borders and help our clients with all the help and information that’s needed to make a smooth crossing to whatever country they are travelling to.

At the helm of this thriving company is Mr. Alex Jochheim. He has a proven track record with a long and successful career in the Tourism sector behind him.
