Would you like to use a 4×4 car for what it was designed to do? Drive through stunning nature and discover unknown territory? Do exciting things with the certainty and safety of a trusted organisation? Whatever your motives are, with 4×4 Discovery Travel you will have an experience to remember.

There is always something to discover

It is great to hear from our customers that we organise perfect 4×4 tours. That we come through areas they didn’t know existed. It is greater still if your journey is an event you never forget . That’s why we make every effort to give you a superior experience. So that you understand what you see, discover new things and appreciate where you are.

One of our customers wrote to us:

Hi Mark

I was just reflecting on what a fantastic adventure we had in Portugal. It combined amazing scenery, good company, lovely accommodation and food, and really learning how to drive a 4×4 off road.  We did things I never thought the car could achieve, but it seemed so effortless.

My Discovery 4 was put through its paces and returned covered in dust and what seemed to be “battle scars” but after a professional clean (and a new air filter!) there isn’t a mark left on it!  What an amazing car it is! I have new respect for it now.

Thanks to you and Hans once again and very best wishes for the success of 4×4 Discovery Travel. You certainly deserve it.

Travelling enriches

The tourist sees what he has come to see; the traveller has come for what he sees, as G.K. Chesterton said. 4×4 Discovery Travel designs travels for travellers. We believe that travelling enriches your life. Once you’re back home, you have changed a little. You see your familiar environment with different eyes. Because returning home is not the same as never leaving.

4×4 Journeys: whether you own or don’t own a 4×4

Lots of people who don’t own a 4×4 car, would still like to use one to get to places other cars can’t reach. We have formed a partnership with Land Rover Huren, a company who specialise in renting out the iconic Land Rover Defender. Their cars a young, well-maintained, fully ready for your journey with 4×4 Discovery Travel. Ask us for availability and rates.

Just be aware that if you rent a Land Rover, you drive it yourself to and from the starting point of the journey. These days form part of the rental period.
