Car rental

Our fleet

Our car rental fleet in Madagascar consists of two 4x4 categories: the Nissan Double Cab and the smaller and lighter Mitsubishi Pajero and Ford Everest, referred to as SUV. Our Double Cabs are all bought new between 2018 and 2023. With increased clearance and bigger wheels, the Double Cabs are able to handle any terrain you may encounter in Madagascar. The SUV vehicles are the best value for money if you are planning to cruise down the RN7 toward Tulear.

We own all our vehicles and never subcontract from third parties. Each car is serviced at our own workshop after every trip. In the unlikely event that you have a breakdown, rest assured that we offer 24/7 roadside assistance and have a replacement vehicle ready. The Nissan Double Cabins are equipped with car trackers. In the unlikely event that you get stuck in the middle of nowhere without any phone/internet signal, we can still locate you.

Hire a car with driver

All of our drivers are skilled, flexible, experienced, helpful and most of all pleasant company. The cost of hiring a driver is €35/ day – this also covers his meals and accommodation. The driver will always sort these out himself. Most lodges have a drivers’ section and provide accommodation and meals for free. When you travel into a national park with a driver, you will also have to pay their entrance fee of €2 - €5 / day, depending on the park.

The driver is responsible for the wellbeing of the car, and the security bond will no longer apply.
