Our Story 

Sahara Down is led by its visionary founder, Robin Schell-Hammer, a German native who embarked on this journey with modest beginnings and grand aspirations. His enduring passion for Land Rovers paved the way for the realization of two distinctive endeavors: a premier luxury car rental company and a high-end African adventure company.

SUV Rentals:
Our luxury car rental company, emerged as a response to the unmet demand in the market for premium vehicles. Our fleet boasts an array of top-tier Land Rover Discovery's, allowing you to explore South Africa in style and comfort. Robin's vision to bridge the gap in the luxury car rental industry has transformed into an exceptional service designed to elevate your travel experiences.
