One of Botswana’s most established plant hire companies, Rhino Plant hires a variety of JCB, Hydromek, Hitachi, D and A and other equipment for the construction, mining, and electrical industries.

The company was created in 1989 in response to the growing demand for excavation equipment and for smaller hires using TLBs. Since then, the company has thrived and actively participated in numerous projects throughout Botswana.

Regardless of how remote or specialized a customer’s needs may be, Rhino Plant Hire can provide a truly nationalized turnkey service when it comes to the hire of 20-40 Ton Excavators, Hydraulic Hammers, Front End Loaders, JCB TLBs and Abnormal Transport.


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 that 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 carriageway, Isang project, Tlokweng Road, Airport Junction, North/south carrier and the New Sir Seretse Khama Airport to name a few.
