It is a travel service that allows you to slow down, to connect and discover the wonders of a self-drive vacation through Southern Africa in a vehicle that you are bound to fall in love with. The  perfect vehicle for any South Africa road trip – the Suzuki Jimny.

Despite its size, the Jimny is an extremely capable 4×4 for peace-of-mind travelling wherever guests choose to venture. Tread Lite’s Jimny’s are perfectly equipped for a variety of self-drive vacations – be it camping, self-catering or stays in B&B’s and Lodges, the vehicle set-ups are adapted to the specific travel needs of guests.

There is a simple one price structure with all the equipment available.

Operating with a small team from ‘offices’ that are ‘mobile’ setups with pick up/drop off locations in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, and Nelspruit/Hoedspruit, vehicles are delivered to guests either at the airport or their guest house in a seamless hand over and collection process. Its affordable rental rates make your South Africa vacation a reality.
