Vehicles

Land Rover Defender



You will experience the trip from the inside of Africas most iconic vehicle- the Land Rover Defender. For most African tribes, this was the first car they ever saw. There is no vehicle more fitting for African overlanding than the Defender.



All of our vehicles are meticulously maintained with passenger safety being our highest priority. All vehicles undergo a full mechanical inspection before every trip and we do preventative maintenance to avoid breakdowns on our tours. If however it does come to a breakdown, we have an experienced Land Rover mechanic with us and carry all vital spares to minimise delays on our expeditions.


All our Landys are equipped with a radio with bluetooth functionality and a working Air Conditioning system for a comfortable time on the road..



The team

You will be accompanied by experienced guides, each bringing unique skills, from logistical management, first aid, mechanical experience to cooking amazing bush dinners and setting up beautiful camps with the best sunset views.


We are all young and adventurous at heart and have all extensively travelled and guided trips through Southern and East Africa. This continent, its amazing and diverse wildlife, scenery, people and cultures are our passion which we would love to show and share with you.



Accomodation

Lodges:

During the expedition we will be spending at least 9 nights at lodges, hotels or guest houses. We have hand picked these accommodations not for their star rating, but rather their uniqueness of location, friendliness of staff and quality of rooms and food.

Camping:

When arriving at the camp the team has already set up the tents and comfy interior so you can have a great night's sleep in the outdoors. The campsites like the lodges are handpicked for the most beautiful locations and clean facilities.


Food

Good food is important to us!


When we're camping your guides will prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner for you.


Breakfast is usually "english" style with seasonal fruit, yoghurt and cereals.

Lunch will often be on the road and either prepared or bought for you at the local shops, restaurants or markets.
