Rhino Plant Hire is one of Botswana’s most established plant hire companies, hiring a range of JCB equipment for the construction, mining & electrical industries. Rhino Plant hire was created in 1989 in the response to the growing demand for excavation equipment and for smaller hires using TLB’s. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength & has been involved in a number of projects throughout Botswana. Rhino Plant Hire is able to offer a truly nationalised service regardless of how remote or specialised a customer’s needs may be.


ABCON is one of the most recognised construction associations in Botswana, with members from all building and engineering contractors, allied suppliers and subcontractors. Therefore Rhino Plant Hire enjoys the benefits of being involved as members of ABCON from a business point of view. Being a member allows Rhino Plant Hire to network with associated companies in the industry who often require their services, as well as offering them marketing opportunities. They also see it as an informative organisation which provides information on industry trends, government projects, government policies and tenders.


Among the many highlights Rhino Plant Hire has enjoyed the privilege of being involved in many major projects in Botswana, namely The Lotsane Dam, Thune Dam, BDC Headquarters at Fairgrounds, CBD High court, Game City, Selebi Phikwe dual carriage way, Isang project, Tlokweng Road, Airport Junction, North/south carrier  and the New Sir Seretse Khama Airport to name a few.



Rhino Plant Hire has a team of properly trained and reliable operators- and they practice the philosophy of “One machine, One operator” to ensure that their operators look after their machines and keep them well maintained. In addition, they have a well- equipped team of qualified field service mechanics who are able to respond quickly in the event of a breakdown. Communication is essential in this field and as predominantly female management in a male dominated industry they have all developed close relationships as a team which enables them to effectively communicate with each other and therefore ensuring quicker response to customer needs.
