While the allure of the great outdoors may be appealing, many of us lack the pricey equipment needed to explore nature at its best. Inspired by his own experience lacking a critical piece of equipment on a gruelling trip, Jacques de Villiers, with his business partners, Viljoen du Plooy and Meiring de Wet, began the journey of starting Scuttle in 2016.
Now more than 5 years later, Scuttle focuses on sustainability and accessibility, providing adventurers with an extensive range of top-quality outdoor equipment to rent. As a leading outdoor product rental company, Scuttle allows outdoor enthusiasts to explore without negatively impacting the environment with single-use purchases. “It gives people the opportunity to do more things outdoors and it’s not determined by what you own,” says Jacques.
