Hans & Marco
We are Hans Schoelink and Marco de Lange. Two true Africa-goers. We have both been going to Africa a lot since 1994. Marco spent several years living in Zimbabwe and Hans drove countless kilometres through the various countries of Africa in the past 25 years. This means we have many good local contacts and can help you put together the best trip and discover the true Africa by 4×4 car.
Up-to-date advice and reliable cars
Since the early years (1994/1995), much has changed. Tourism has increased dramatically and self-drive trips and 4×4 rental cars have become extremely popular. Travellers used to only run into other ‘overlanders’ with their own cars (much like we met each other in Namibia). However, now you’ll notice that you won’t be the only one discovering Africa with a 4×4. Luckily the countries are so massive that there’s space enough for everyone. You can still drive there for a day without meeting anyone.
We ourselves are regular visitors of Southern Africa, so we can keep our self-drive experience up to date. Our network of local contacts also keeps us updated, so we can provide you with the latest information of the local situation. We use this knowledge to support and advise you during your self-drive trip through Africa.
