Toyota Hilux single cab

The Toyota Hilux Single Cab is one of the most affordable 4×4s you can rent in Southern Africa. The car seats 2, and is available either with or without complete camping gear. It is important to know that the single cab cabin is smaller than that of the Toyota Hilux double cab, and we advise taller drivers to go for the double cab.

The Hilux Single cab has sleeping places in the roof tent on top of the car. This Toyota Hilux Double Cab 4×4 has a separate boot where you can safely store your travel bags, together with all the camping equipment for your self-drive journey in Southern Africa. A disadvantage of the single cab  is the lack of storage space for luggage and photo equipment in the second cab.

The main advantage, though, is the lower price per day. Specifications: 2.4 Diesel engine, air conditioning, and all other default options. The Toyota Hilux is also equipped with full camping gear, including a refrigerator, cooking gear, chairs, a table and sleeping bags. In addition to the fully equipped we also offer this car without equipment. Apart from this Toyota car we can also offer a single cab Nissan 4×4 car, which is slightly cheaper to rent.


Specifications can vary per car and supplier. Please request the specifications of the car on offer. All camping 4×4 cars are equipped with a very complete assortment for 2-4 people which includes practically everything for taking a camping trip across Southern Africa.

We would recommend Selfdrive4x4.com to our friends

We booked a last minute 17 day self drive trip through Namibia with this company and everything was just perfect. Contact with the company was very pleasant and they kept us posted with updates about the progress of our trip. Gps, maps, book and 12V equipment was sent to our home as soon as our trip was confirmed.

Price wise it was a great deal and everything in Namibia (car and layovers) were to our satisfaction. We would definitely book again with this company and we would recommend it to our friends.
