Spec Sheet of our Stretched Toyota Landcruiser

by Boris Ament

We drive the classic Toyota Landcruiser in Uganda and Kenya. 

Our vehicles are well maintained but NOT new, so the quality of the audio or A/C is not comparable to a new car you might drive at home or have rented in Southern Africa where the roads are better and import tax is lower. The Landcruisers you see in Uganda and Kenya are made for the bush. 

See our spec sheet and know what to expect when renting a car from Roadtrip Africa.
