Be an Adventurer – Not a Tourist

Our Story

iDrive4×4 is a Dutch adventure travel company based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands founded by Rob van Klingeren and Peter Scholten.

Our passion for exploring the desert and the vast nature with Jeeps equipped with rooftop tents in UAE and Oman led to the idea of starting a business that would allow us to share our experiences with others.

After many campfire conversations, we finally made a business plan and decided to rent camping equipment and 4x4s to clients with Google Maps routes to guide them.

Since opening for business in 2017, iDrive 4×4 has grown rapidly, despite the pandemic. We now have over 100 rooftop tents and related equipment operating in the Himalayas, Oman, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan and Kenya.

Our ambition is to offer 4×4 rooftop tent adventures worldwide, with a loyalty program to turn clients into professional trailblazers.
