Spec sheet: Toyota Landcruiser Double Cabin
The Toyota Landcruiser Double Cab with customised canopy is a highly respected safari vehicle in Africa, with no electronics, and perfect to take on a bush camping safari.
Take note that our vehicles are well maintained but NOT new, so the driving comfort and quality of the audio 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.
