Thank you for choosing class and style


We started our business because we are passionate about our products. Our idea was to create great, high-quality products at reasonable prices.

It seems that our idea has worked, because our business has grown continuously in recent years.

The business  is run by  Loftus Viljoen snr and Loftus Viljoen jnr father and son.  Loftus Viljoen snr  is a retired attorney by profession specialized in commercial, environmental, property and litigious matters since 1975. He loves the wide outdoors and is a keen a photographer and many of these are photographs are published on the company web site as well as various magazines. He has done many safaris all over Southern Africa. He is also a certified and qualified advanced scuba diver with deep diving as a specialty. Loftus loves to explore new places, new destinations and takes a keen interest in and the environment as well as the fauna and flora of the areas he visits. He has done various 4x4 courses  from rocky terrain bushes to sand dunes. As a kid he grew up in a butchery environment and today he makes the tastiest venison salami, sausages, sosaties, smoked cheese grillers and generally just loves cooking.

It seems an unlikely venture for an attorney to start an off-road caravan rental company, but for this Pretoria-based attorney, it happened quite by chance. Doing the Eco 4x4 Challenge a couple of years ago Loftus was approached by a couple of friends who wanted to join him on a safari to Botswana and Zambia, some of the single ladies was apprehensive about sleeping in a tent (be it on terra firma or a rooftop). They also did not relish the prospect of pitching a tent after a long day’s drive and packing everything up the next morning. Thus began the search for rental off-road caravans, but, alas none were to be found. The idea of a fleet of rental 4x4 caravans was conceived in October 2003 and the first delivery of our fleet commenced in December 2003.
