Vista 4

Helderberg Camper Hire was started in Somerset West on the outskirts of Cape Town in 1998 as a small part-time business and has grown to be one of the leading camper hire operators in South Africa. Now part of the Vista Motorhomes group, Helderberg Camper Hire is a reputable organization with a good reputation in the industry. Our success has been built on honest dealings with our customers and good, reliable service.

Helderberg Camper Hire is a family owned and run business and as such can offer the personal service you would expect. Big enough to ensure that you have full backup, 24 hrs; but small enough to ensure that you are not just another number. Owners Tienie and Ronel Schietekat and their staff are passionate about motorhomes and can offer you the support and security you need when undertaking your venture.

For your added peace-of-mind, Helderberg Camper Hire has contracted the Automobile Association of South Africa (AA) to provide emergency breakdown service in the unlikely event of developing a mechanical problem anywhere in South Africa. Our vehicles are serviced by the agents and maintained in tip top condition.

Another important benefit that Helderberg Camper Hire offers is our Comprehensive Insurance Package through Zurich Insurance Co, which offers not only Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), but also Theft and Third Party cover - essential in our modern world. We don't simply self-insure, you are covered by one of the leading insurance companies in the world.

Through our association with the other leading motorhome rental companies in South Africa, we are also pleased to be able to offer you a cross-section of the vehicles available for hire in South Africa. This means that, even if we do not operate it ourselves, we will be able to source the vehicle that suits your needs. Another important benefit of this association is that, in the unlikely event of a mishap or breakdown en route, we are in regular contact with our colleagues in the industry and can get you back on your way speedily.

Helderberg Camper Hire takes it's name from the beautiful Helderberg mountains overlooking Somerset West and the Helderberg Basin. Situated in the picturesque Boland, the wine-growing centre of South Africa, Somerset West is just 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.

Cape Town is not only one of the premier destinations in South Africa, but is also the ideal springboard for your trip down the Garden Route or up the rugged West Coast and on to Namibia.

From our Johannesburg depot, head off to the Bushveld, visit the Kruger Park or on towards Botswana. You can even head south across South Africa to end in Cape Town. Another alternative is to head for the subtropical paradise of the Kwazulu Natal north and south coast or visit the stunning Drakensburg Mountain resorts on the way...the possibilities are endless, contact us now!
