Landcruiser Double Cabin

The Toyota Landcruiser Double Cab with a 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 very well maintained but NOT new, so the driving comfort and quality of the audio and airconditioning are not comparable to a new car you might drive at home or have rented in Southern Africa, where the roads are in better condition, 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.
