iDrive 4×4 is your typical ‘hobby-turned-into-business venture story’. It was founded by two Dutch passionate 4×4 off-roaders living in Dubai, Rob van Klingeren and Peter Scholten. They had been driving on the Emirati dunes for some time when they first witnessed the enthralling beauty of Oman on a group trip in 2015. Captivated, they and their friends returned several times and came to be increasingly fond of the country. During one of their trips, sitting by the campfire, they fantasized about the idea of turning these awesome experiences into a business opportunity. Rob and Peter gradually built up on their idea, and within a year they had officially started iDrive 4×4 BV in 2017 and guided their first commercial off-road camping expedition for family and friends in Oman.
Driving around Oman, they found wild species, ancient wadi’s, beaches, desert dunes, and native Omani villages and culture. What made these experiences so profound to them was the freedom of discovering all of this themselves. The business philosophy of iDrive 4×4 came to rest on the own experience of Rob and Peter. The equipment rental would aid likeminded travelers to explore the country while they ensured that their tours provided guidance while still allowing their customers plenty of agency in their traveling experience.
iDrive 4×4 expended the business to Kyrgyzstan in 2020. We work in a team of 15 employees and hold offices in The Netherlands, UAE and Oman.
Both Oman and Kyrgyzstan have vast expanses of untainted and diverse nature. Our mission is to show its beauty to our customers in an authentic and responsible way. Based on our own experience we offer our clients off-road camping adventures in Oman and Kyrgyzstan where you drive the 4×4 car. We offer our clients suitable and well maintained 4×4 cars with quality camping equipment installed and prepared by our Service Centers. Our clients can explore the countries independently or join one of our group expeditions and follow the guide.
