Hi Mozman

Traveling to Ponta do Ouro and then on to KNP with a family of 5 in October.

Wondering what 4x4 to hire. I have found a Daihatsu Terios at kulula.com for R495 per day (pick up in Nelspruit). Is this vehicle 'good enough' for the roads around Ponta do Ouro?

Flying to Maputo (instead of Nelspruit) and hiring similar from there would save me a lot of driving, but have not found a similar vehicle. Best so far is Sixt offfering a Ford Ranger Double ca for R950 per day.

Hi

with a family of 5 Terios really too small unless you pack as if you are hiking / backpacking /trekking. Also the Terios does not have low-range and some of the thick sand around Ponta really needs low range and high ground clearance.

For comfort and safety I strongly recommend the Ranger.
