Over the years we have thoroughly researched the vehicle options for self drive safaris and its the Land Rover Defender that wins every time.
We think it is the best vehicle for the job as it is easy to drive, it has a great track record and it is probably the most capable and hardwearing 4x4 in the world.
We have a fleet of vehicles supplied by Land Rover dealerships that come with long-range fuel tanks, fridges, second spare wheels and a whole host of other extras. Our vehicles contain everything you will need for your trip.
From time to time we sell fully equipped Land Rovers that have come from our fleet details of the vehicles can be found by contacting us.
Since the start, Safari Drive has always used Land Rovers out of preference. However, in some countries where servicing and maintaining them is very difficult we may offer an alternative vehicle. We have tried and tested all the vehicles in extreme conditions and not one of them has failed to deliver.
They are all allocated on a first come basis and although the equipment is almost identical across the whole range, the set-up in each case can be slightly different.
|Main vehicles||Additional models used|
|Namibia||110 Land Rovers||TDci tdi|
|Botswana||110 Land Rovers||TDci tdi|
|Zambia||110 Land Rovers||TDci tdi|
|Malawi||110 Land Rovers||TDci tdi Land Cruisers|
|Tanzania||110 Land Rovers||Tdi|
|Kenya||110 Land Rovers||Tdi|
This is another area we have researched very carefully and through Charles broad experience of overland expeditions, we have refined the list of vehicle equipment that we provide. The equipment is not absolutely identical in every vehicle but we always ensure you have the essentials for each country and its respective driving conditions.
