The Vehicle

Toyota Land Cruiser 79

After much rigorous trial and testing we finally decided upon the 79 series as our across the board flagship vehicle. These vehicles offer us the rugged base from which to build our bespoke style of vehicle. We are incredibly happy with how they have turned out. They offer us the space, reliability and strength that we believe is necessary for our safaris.

They make great vehicles for families of four or in extremis five (although please call us to discuss the logistics!). They easily hold 2 roof tents and if you are strict on personal luggage then we can sometimes squeeze in a ground tent too.

The Vehicle

All the gear. All the idea.

Over the years we have researched and refined the list of vehicle equipment that we provide. The equipment is almost identical in every vehicle and we always ensure you have the essentials for each country and its respective driving conditions.

You will have everything you need (and some nice extras) for your trip, so that camping, eating out (and enjoying a glass of wine) are a joy.

OUR equipment

The Roof Tent

Don't like sleeping on the ground? No problem. All our vehicles have roof tents, equipped with sheets, duvets (two singles or double available), pillows and a blanket, giving you the extra comfort and safety you desire.


Satellite Phone

Uniquely, we provide Satellite Phones with our trips. We promote 24/7 support and mean it. How can you call us if you don't signal after all. Also, your family might like a catch up (we include complimentary credit up to 15 minutes).

Confidently discovering
the road less travelled

Navigating the endless dirt tracks and washed out roads has always been one of the biggest challenges when traveling in Africa. In recent years Global Positioning Systems and Sat Nav pin point accuracy has opened up a whole new world in regards to wilderness navigation.
