Satellite Phone Rental
Traveling in Africa often means not having any cell phone or internet coverage. In addition the cost of satellite phone calls, are almost cheaper than roaming cell phone charges. Be sure that your friends and family can reach you or that you can call for help in case of emergency, and rent one of our Inmarsat Satellite Phones that enables you to send text messages as well as text your current location in case of emergency.
GPS Rental and GPS route planning
We love “roaming” Africa – but only if it is planned. We do not particularly like arriving late at our overnight stop because the road we were roaming on, led to Rome and not Africa. Be sure not to get lost by renting a GPS, loaded with Tracks for Africa off-road tracks (www.tracks3africa.co.za), and fully programmed with your route and destinations. If you already own a Garmin GPS, we can do your planning and program the GPS for you.
Traveling the African Wilderness is not for 2×4’s and sedan vehicles. But you don’t own a 4×4. Or maybe you fly in from another continent and the excess luggage charge on your own vehicle was outside your budget (just kidding). Roads to Roam supplies 4×4 vehicles fully equipped with all gear required for an African holiday, inclusive of a 2 hour 4×4 driving course, as well as GPS and satellite phone.
Don’t feel like cooking while you are on holiday? We offer a catering service in the wilderness. Sit back and relax with a drink while we prepare traditional meals such as “braaivleis”, “potjie”, “pap”, corn on the cob and freshly baked “pot bread”.
