Toyota Landcruiser with pop up roof

Your safari classic - the Toyota Troopy with a pop-up roof and six window seats. Equipped with a long-range tank (140-180L, 1100-1300 km radius), and a strong 4.2cc diesel engine. It's designed for off-road driving and can handle all the challenges you can expect when driving on Kenyan roads.

When outfitted with a rooftop tent, it's not possible to use the pop-up roof so you might want to consider renting a ground tent instead. Manual, Diesel, 140L, 2 spare tires, inverter. Fuel consumption is around 7 km/liter. Note it has no A/C. Read all the specifications here
