the birth
Lekker Camper was born in 2005 after we, the Owners, came back from a long Round the World trip and then wanted to throw away the office suits and go back to our grass roots and travel Southern Africa. We thought the campervan and motorhome market was way overpriced. Plus all those hidden extras drove us mad! To top that, we were fed up of finding foreign companies in South Africa employing no South Africans - why couldn't there be a proudly South African company?!!! - born and bred in South Africa (Not Germany, NZ or Australia!).....and employing South Africans....plus those agents and middle men all wanting to make commission (for not doing a lot) drove us up the wall.

So Lekker Camper was born - a South African bred company employing South Africans, never (hardly ever ;-)) using agents and constantly challenging and shaking up the camping market in South Africa (trust us...the cobwebs need rattling!) We want to grow the South African tourism market and pride ourselves on being fair, honest and open and always passing the best offer possible to our lekker customers. That's why we can proudly say that 50% of our business is based upon return customers coming back year after year.

We specialise in Volkswagen (VW) hire offering 2-4 berth VW 'Classic' T3/T25 Campers rental, VW T3/T25 'Comfort' Campers rental, modern VW T5 Camper rental and VW Kombi Hire (plus the odd SUV and MPV thrown in for good measure!) for the independent traveller that has limited funds to spend (but doesn't want to compromise on quality or style) and wants to travel for a lekker looong time, the lekker way. What you see is what you get! We are always searching around for the best deals on other vehicle hire and cool offers - so we are truly a 1-stop shop for all your travel requirements in South Africa. Keep in touch with us on facebook to hear all about it.

camping (glamping) in style
Who said that because you go camping, you must sleep in a sleeping bag?! We don't substitute comfort or reliability - all our VW campers are a mini home fitted out with every bit of living, sleeping and camping equipment you should need (including comfy duvets!), and they are all serviced regularly to high standards. Our campers all have electric 240V and 12 V fridges and fitted units of drawers and cupboards (you don't have to unpack like in some other so called 'campervans'!) . Our campers have a fitted 2 burner gas stoves, an awesome kitchen area with all the pots & pans, comfortable sofa, outdoor table, indoor table, chairs and clean, freshly ironed double bed plus an awning to relax under when you need some shade. There's also mossie nets at the windows to keep out the flying insects, but ensure you get fresh air at all times. On top of that all our campervans are fitted with external plug sockets so you can plug straight in at a campsite and are fully powered up with electricity inside. Everything is included - go check them out! We've tested them all too - every campervan has been on a road trip with the owners! It truly is a South African glamping experience (yes, that really is a term! - go check out http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=glamping) ...so go GLAMP yourself up and book your VW campervan today for an awesome South African adventure!
