Spec Sheet of our Stretched Toyota Landcruiser

by Boris Ament System.String[]

We drive the classic Toyota Landcruiser in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. 

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, Kenya and Tanzania are made for the bush. 

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