Temba Car Hire

Temba Car Hire offers only late model vehicles with low km in South Africa, Botswana and Namibia. We have outlets in all major cities in South Africa and in Gaborone, Francistown, Maun and Kasane in Botswana – as well as in Windhoek and Walvisbay in Namibia.

Rates include extra driver surcharge, young driver surcharge, insurance, unlimited km and full excess, unless otherwise stipulated.

We specialise in the international leisure market and our vehicles are therefore not available to South African citizens. Believe it or not, this enables us to keep our rates low.

Rates exclude fuel.

At Temba you prepay but if you cancel more than 3 days prior to pick up, you will be refunded in full. No hastle with payment when you arrive. Your credit card details will only be taken in case we need to refuel the vehicle.
