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 .....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 , modern VW 'Africana' T5 Camper rental, Toyota Safari 4x4 campers and VW Retro 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.
We are busy restoring this 1971 Fleetline Camper. They were originally build by Cox camper in Cape Town. Hopefully we can keep up the good work.
