Permitted area of travel for Discoverer 4 & 6 models
All campers are allowed to travel on any properly tarred surface. Good smooth sand roads (non-corrugated) are also permitted.
There are areas however that are not suitable for driving with a camper.
These are: the Swartberg Pass (SA), the Sani Pass (SA), Kalahari Gemsbok Park (also called Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park), The road to the Sentech Towers in Marakele Park (SA), Baviaanskloof Pass (SA), the access road to the Africa Burn festival, all of Mozambique, all of Malawi, all of Angola, Zambia further than Livingstone, all of Zimbabwe except the short road from Kasane to Victoria Falls, all 4x4 trails, the Skeleton Coast Park (Namibia), the short road from Hobas to the Viewpoint (Fish River Canyon), Van Zyl's Pass (Namibia), any sand dune, Sandwich Harbour (Namibia), the entire Kaokoland (Namibia), the Okavango Delta (Botswana) the Makgadigadi Pans (Botswana), narrow and steep single lane mountain passes and any road in South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana and Namibia that do not adhere to the condition of roads as mentioned above. D, G or F marked roads in Namibia(e.g. D4130 etc). Travelling in Zimbabwe is not allowed, since items
like fuel or food are currently not always available. We also do not take responsibility for ANY damages or claims arising out of fast speeds and/or long distance driving on the washboard roads (especially C-roads) in Namibia.
These include all air conditioners, radiators, tyres and suspension systems.
Due to weather circumstances Bobo Campers has the right to restrict road or areas.

Telephone costs
We do not reimburse costs incurred through telephone calls to our offices or staff. Customers are advised to purchase a local SIM card instead. The costs for local calls are usually much cheaper.

Vehicle substitution
Bobo Campers reserves the right to substitute, under special circumstances, the desired vehicle with an equal or better vehicle without prior notice before the start of any rental period.
If a vehicle needs to be substituted because of an accident or mechanical problems, and the hirer refuses to accept this replacement vehicle as stipulated above, the hirer is seen to terminate the contract, and no reimbursements will apply.
Vehicle substitution replacement costs because of an accident or mechanical failure making the vehicle unable to drive caused by own fault or negligence, illegal driving (driving on the wrong side or under the influence of alcohol/ drugs or parking and/or water damages)
will be for the hirers' account. This includes towing the damaged vehicle to the nearest depot.
We also do not reimburse costs made through telephone calls. The client is advised to purchase a local SIM card.
These costs are usually much cheaper. Driving distances can be great and Bobo Campers must be given a realistic time to cover a distance before lost holiday time becomes a factor for a claim submission.
Non-essential items like air conditioners can take longer (up to two days) to be repaired, depending on the country or area the customer is travelling in. As a general rule Bobo Campers has 24 hours at its disposal, starting from the time we are informed of the breakdown to solve a problem before lost-time compensation becomes applicable. In other countries like Namibia (for example the Caprivi Strip), Botswana or Zambia, a more realistic time is sometimes needed. We also do not take responsibility for ANY damages or claims arising out of fast speeds and/or long distance driving on the washboard roads (especially C-roads) in Namibia.
These include all air conditioners, radiators, tyres and suspension systems.

Dust ingress
Southern Africa is predominantly an arid desert region and the majority of secondary routes travelled, are on unsealed dust or gravel roads. It is not possible to make vehicles dust-proof and therefore refunds or claims for any dust ingress of any nature, will not be considered.

Breakdowns
In the unlikely event that a breakdown occurs, please contact the stand-by mechanic on the number as per your contract. Before phoning, please consult your Info Book. It might not be necessary to make contact.
Please state your breakdown and listen to the mechanic. He has proper knowledge on mechanical issues. Please follow his advice carefully. The mechanic will ask certain questions relating to oil and water levels, warning lights etc. Please follow their instructions carefully.
His advice will also be the best in the situation. Please always follow the advice of the mechanic.
This is very important to avoid further damages.

Accidents
By law all accidents must be reported to Bobo Campers and the local Police within 24 hrs.
Failing to report accidents voids all insurance cover and the hirer becomes fully liable for all costs.
If the rental vehicle is involved in an accident and is not drivable, a replacement vehicle, if available, may be collected from the closest branch at costs of the hirer.
Take as many photographs of all vehicles involved as well as persons involved and their drivers licenses.
Obtain an AR (accident report) number form the police on the scene. This proves the accident was registered by the police.
Fill in the accident form in the back of your Info Book.
If the hirer requires a replacement vehicle to be delivered, then these charges will be for the hirer's account.
None of the excess reduction options (CDW) cover this process.
The hirer is responsible for the full recovery (e.g. towing) of the damaged vehicle to the original rental depot.
Should there be no replacement vehicle available, no refund for lost rental days will be considered.
If the hirer is unable or unwilling to take a replacement vehicle, no refunds for early termination of the contract will apply.
No refund of rental days lost will be considered during the period in which a replacement vehicle is being arranged.
Should the hirer continue with a replacement vehicle then a new rental contract and insurance conditions will apply.

Currency fluctuations
All credit card transactions are conducted in South African Rand (ZAR). Due to exchange rate fluctuations there could be some variance in the amount refunded compared to the amount initially charged. If a credit card is presented as payment, the credit card holder will be jointly and severally liable as a customer.

Drivers license
A valid non-endorsed national driver's license together with a valid international drivers license is required.
Drivers must be 21 years or older (23 years of age is applicable for 4x4 vehicles - see under our 4x4 terms)

Personal injury and belongings
Personal injury and belongings are not covered by our insurance. The client is therefore responsible to obtain his or her own travel insurance in advance.

Traffic fines/ penalty
Should the customer receive a traffic fine(s), Bobo Campers will notify the customer via email. The amount of the fine plus an additional admin fee of R150 will be charged to the customers' credit card. On request, Bobo Campers will email a scanned copy of these fines. It can take up to three months for traffic fines to reach our office.

INSURANCE CDW (Collision Damage Waiver)
Minimum age of driver is 21 years with valid international and national drivers license. Basic excess is applicable on all vehicles involved in a collision or accident – this is R53000. This is included in the rental contract.
If this option is taken, the hirer is liable for the first R53000 damage to a vehicle or third party vehicle / property.
This excess can be paid by cash or credit card (a manual imprint of the credit card will be taken) and the amount will have to be authorised by the bank).
Taking the following options can reduce this excess:
CDW Midi is from 3 days onwards. This daily fee reduces the excess to R19000.
CDW Maxi is from 8 days onwards. This reduces the excess to Nil (see exclusions below).
The hirer is responsible for the following damages under any circumstances with no CDW waiver applicable:
- Engine damages due to negligence or abuse (e.g. failed to respond to dashboard warning lights).
- Clutch failure due to driver abuse (e.g. burnt pressure plate due to excessive slipping, shredded clutch plate).
- Any water damages due to water entering the engine or drive shafts.
- Roll-over damages of any kind without exception – incl. speed, loss of control etc.
- Illegal behaviour, negligence, or a breach of law (e.g. speeding, illegal parking, driving on the wrong side)
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Driving on restricted roads / areas.
- Vehicle was driven by person other than permitted driver as stipulated in the contract.
- Towing costs, if required, for all above damages.

Please note: This cover is not a personal liability cover, but covers damage to our vehicles and/or 3rd party property.

Roll-over explanation
a Roll-over is defined as a vehicle sustaining all types of damage due to not being in its normal position – on all 4 wheels.
Just by lying on its side a vehicle is seen as a having rolled-over. Final resting position of a rolled vehicle is not relevant.
Roll-overs that were not caused by a collision are not covered by any CDW insurance. These incident occur very rarely and should not happen if the driver sticks to the speed limit, scans the road and is awake.

Towing cost
In case of damage to any part of a motorhome it must be assessed if the unit is drivable. If not, the vehicle must be
towed to the nearest depot by a reputable towing company authorized by Bobo Campers.
Towing and recovery costs arising due to any type of accident is to be paid by the customer irrespective of CDW option.

Gauteng Road Taxes
As from December 2013 the main Gauteng roads are subjected to E-tolling. Large gantries have been erected where all vehicles that drive underneath them are charged according to their classification.
This system means that there is an additional levy of R800 is raised on all rentals departing and/or returning at our Johannesburg depot.
When the E-toll statement arrive at our offices we will charge for the incurred fees and add an admin fee.
The remaining amount will be refunded to the customer.
All manned toll-booths throughout South Africa need to be paid on the spot by the customer.

Tyre replacement
If a tyre needs to be replaced it is important to ensure that both the ply rating (8ply Commercial) and size are corresponding to the tyre it replaced on the vehicle. This to ensure maximum safety and function. Replacement tyres of the wrong size or ply rating will not be refunded.

The customer shall be liable to and hereby indemnifies the owner for all damage or loss suffered by the owner should the vehicle be used for any other purpose, or should the customer fail to comply with any required safety and maintenance procedures.
(b) The customer shall use the camper at its own risk. The customer shall have no claim of any nature against the owner of the vehicle, for any loss suffered or damages sustained by the customer arising from any cause, including, without any limitation, the use of the camper and provisions thereof. We also do not take responsibility from damages arising out of fast speeds and long distances driven on the washboard roads in Namibia.
7. Access
(a) The customer shall, at all times, be fully responsible for the camper prior to the return thereof, and shall return it to the owner at the expiry of the hire period or on cancellation of the agreement.
(b) The owner shall at all reasonable times be entitled to have access to the camper, for the purpose of inspecting or repairing the vehicle.

(b) The customer is liable for all traffic offences incurred whilst the vehicle is on hire.
(c) Refrigerators, stoves, air conditioners and microwave are checked by the owner and the client before every rental, consequently we do not accept liability for any possible malfunction of these units during the rental period.

Hirer responsibilities
The hirer is liable for the vehicle for the full period of the reservation and for basic maintenance of the vehicle during the rental period. You are expected to check the following every 1000 km: Water levels, oil levels, tyre pressure and battery water.
You are responsible for the following damages under all circumstances with no CDW waiver applicable:
- Engine damages due to negligence or abuse (e.g. failed to respond to dashboard warning lights).
- Clutch and/or drive shaft failures due to driver abuse like slipping the clutch. Damages like these could be caused by adverse road  conditions like soft sand, pot holes etc.
- Water damage due to water entering the engine or drive shafts.
- Gearbox and/or drive shaft damage due to abuse or damage caused by driving through pot holes.
- Driving in restricted areas.
- Driving in 4x4 mode -high or low range mode- on tarred roads.

- Awning damage due to strong to moderate winds, rain
- Towing costs, if required, for all above damages to the drop-off depot.
We strongly advice our customers not to drive after sunset. Risk of an accident in Africa is much higher in the dark.

Currency fluctuations
All credit card transactions are conducted in South African Rand (ZAR). Due to exchange rate fluctuations there could be some variance in the amount refunded compared  to the amount initially charged. If a credit card is presented as payment, credit card holder will be jointly and severally liable as a customer.
We do not accept American Express and Diners Club cards.

Drivers license
A valid non-endorsed international driver's license together with the national drivers license is required. Drivers must be 23 years or older for our 4x4 vehicles. SA citizens only need to present their valid drivers license.

Repairs
Repairs up to R1200 may be undertaken without authorization and will be reimbursed upon presentation of receipts depending on the chosen CDW option. When over R1200 we need to be contacted for authorization.

Vehicle substitution
We reserve the right to substitute under special circumstances the desired vehicle with an equal or better vehicle without prior notice before the start of any rental period. If a vehicle needs to be substituted because of an accident or mechanical problems, and the hirer
refuses to accept a replacement vehicle as stipulated above, the hirer is seen to terminate the contract, and no reimbursements apply.
Driving distances can be great and Bobo Campers must be given a realistic time to cover a distance before lost holiday time becomes a factor for a claim submission. Non-essential items like air conditioners can take longer (up to two days) to be repaired, depending on the country or area the customer is travelling in. As a general rule Bobo Campers have 24 hours at its disposal from the time the breakdown has been communicated to us to solve a problem before lost-time compensation is applicable. In other countries like Namibia (example: Caprivi Strip), Botswana (example: Chobe, Moremi) or inside Zambia, up to 48 hours may be needed.

Change of requested vehicle
Bobo Campers reserves the right to substitute a comparable or superior vehicle should the requested vehicle not be available due to unforeseen circumstances. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and does not entitle the hirer to any refund.

Dust ingress
Southern Africa is predominantly an arid desert region and the majority of secondary routes travelled, are on unsealed dust or gravel roads. It is not possible to make vehicles dust-proof and therefore refunds or claims for any dust ingress of any nature, will not be considered.

Breakdowns
In the unlikely event that a breakdown occurs, please contact the stand-by mechanic on the number as per your contract. Before phoning, please consult your Info Book. It might not be necessary to make contact.
Please state your breakdown and listen to the mechanic. He has proper knowledge on mechanical issues.
The mechanic will ask certain questions relating to oil and water levels, warning lights etc. Please follow their instructions carefully.
His advice will also be the best in the situation. Please always follow the advice of the mechanic. This is very important to avoid further damages.

CDW terms for Mozambique
You are allowed to drive your 4x4 camper in Mozambique. However, this country is not fully geared for self-drive as yet. This does not mean
that self-drive is not possible. For travelling in or through this beautiful country an extra CDW excess is applicable.
There is a separate excess of R7000 or any damage to the vehicle. In the event of the vehicle having to be towed, the customer will arrange to have the vehicle towed to the nearest depot.
The towing costs, as well as any other damages related to the towing of the vehicle, do not form part of this excess and will be for the customer's account.

Please note: This cover is not a personal liability cover, but covers damage to our vehicles and/or 3rd party property.

Roll-overs
The Discoverer FunX2 and DC range are higher than conventional vehicles. This means that the centre of gravity is also at a higher point. This increases the risk of a roll over occurring. A roll-over is defined as a vehicle sustaining all types of damage due to not being in its normal position – on all 4 wheels. Just by lying on its side a vehicle is seen as having rolled-over. Roll-overs that were not caused by a collision eg. another vehicle are not covered by any
CDW insurance. Final resting position of a rolled vehicle is not relevant.
These incidents occur very rarely and should never happen if the driver sticks to the speed limit, scans the road ahead and is fully awake.

Towing cost
In case of damage to any part of a motorhome it must be assessed if the unit is drivable. If not, the vehicle must be towed to the nearest depot by a reputable towing company authorized by Bobo Campers. Towing and recovery costs arising due to any type of accident is to be
paid for by the customer irrespective of CDW.

Gauteng Road Taxes
As from December 2013 the main Gauteng roads are subjected to E-tolling. Large gantries have been erected where all vehicles that drive underneath them are charged according to their classification. This very unpopular system means that there is an additional levy of R800 raised on all rentals departing and/or returning at our Johannesburg depot. When the E-toll statement arrive at our offices we will charge for the incurred fees and add an admin fee. The remaining amount will be refunded to the customer. All manned toll-booths throughout South Africa need to be paid by the customer.

Namibian CO2 Taxes
As from 11 July 2016 all Namibian custom borders have implemented a CO2 tax for all South African registered rental vehicles - which our entire fleet is.
According to emissions per model it ranges from R5,500 to R7,500 per vehicle. This taxation is applicable to all rentals starting or ending at our Windhoek depot. Currently it is charged at R450 per contract irrespective if some rental days are spent outside the borders of Namibia.

Tyre replacement
If a tyre needs to be replaced it is important to ensure that both the ply rating (8ply Commercial) and size are corresponding to the tyre it replaced on the vehicle. This to ensure maximum safety and function. Replacement tyres of the wrong size or ply rating will not be refunded.

Parking / speeding/ traffic offences
Should the customer receive a traffic fine(s), Bobo Campers will notify the customer via email. The amount of the fine plus an additional admin fee of R150 will be charged to the customers' credit card. On request, Bobo Campers will email a scanned copy of these fines.
It can take up to three months for traffic fines to reach our office.

Permitted areas of travel for the Discoverer FunX2 and DC range
Vehicles may be taken into South Africa's neighbouring states but are not allowed into Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC),
Tanzania or Malawi. Driving on 4x4 leisure Tracks that require an entrance fee or club membership are also not allowed.
All insurance cover is void if vehicles enter these prohibited areas and will result in a breach of contract.
The 4x4 is used for driving terrain that is usually inaccessible with a normal two-wheel drive vehicle.
Dangerous and irresponsible manoeuvres to test the abilities of the camper to the limit are not allowed under any circumstances as they are dangerous. All towing costs to the nearest depot are for the customer's account.
Bobo Campers reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to restrict vehicle movements in certain areas due to adverse road or weather
conditions, political situations or any other reason.
Any driving on sand dunes and the Van Zyl's Pass in Namibia is not allowed. Remember that you should never test the abilities of the Discoverer FunX & DC range to the fullest, and that you will be liable for the full repair costs if accidents, mechanical damage or roll-overs
happen here. Please ensure that the departure, approach and roll angles are observed as in the info manuals.
Due to adverse weather circumstances Bobo Campers has the right to restrict road or areas.

Discoverer FunX2 and DC range points:
- Never use 4WD mode on tarred roads as serious damage can occur.
- Drive slowly, especially on gravel and dirt roads. Keep to a maximum 60km/h on gravel and 30km/h on soft sand. Try to stay in the existing tyre tracks.
- Keep large following distances on sand/dirt roads to avoid excessive dust which hampers visibility.
- Ensure you brake for drifts in the road. These drifts can appear suddenly and are not always clearly visible. Driving through them at too high speeds can damage your suspension, under carriage and more.
