Spec sheet of the Toyota Landcruiser Hardtop for hire in Tanzania

by Laura van Dijk

In Tanzania we drive the Toyota Landcruiser Hardtop.

Take note that our vehicles are well maintained but NOT new, so the driving comfort and 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 tend to be in better condition and are very accommodating for self-drive, therefore putting much less wear and tear on the vehicles. The Landcruisers you see in Tanzania are made for the bush.

Read our specification sheet and know what to expect when renting a car from Roadtrip Africa.

We take out the 5th and 6th seat to create extra space.
