to offer
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.

In particular they will make great vehicles for families (easily holding 2 roof tents) and longer multi country expeditions.

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 identical in every vehicle but we always ensure you have the essentials for each country and its respective driving conditions

We always ensure you have all the essential kit (and some nice extras) for your trip, so camping, eating out (and drinking) 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.

Navigation

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).

Navigation

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.
