Toyota Hilux Safari

Travelling as a small group of friends or as a family and need a bit more space than you get with an SUV? Is your focus on photography and you want to get the best shots? This is how you travel in true safari style.

With a pop-up roof, large sliding windows and being higher off the ground, you’re better positioned for epic wildlife viewing and unobstructed panoramic photographs of the incredible landscape that surrounds you.

As a compact 4x4 safari vehicle you’ll easily navigate the gravel roads and you’ll be able to head that last 5km stretch into Sossusvlei or into the dry riverbed in Damaraland to search for the elusive desert adapted elephants. If you’re lodge is off the beaten track, you’ll easily get there too.

Available for private guided tours and self-drives. These vehicles are few and far between and we’re one of the only companies in Namibia that rents out these safari converted vehicles for self-drives. You've come to Africa for a safari so why not travel in the ultimate safari vehicle?

Whilst this vehicle can accommodate up to 7 people (on a self-drive basis including the driver), we recommend each person have a window seat. It’s a much better experience and you won't have to share your view of that cheetah, just metres away.

The rear luggage compartment is more than spacious enough for all the luggage you’ll have in tow.

Two of these vehicles have fridges (with an additional battery). The rest all come with a cool box. All of these vehicles have traction control, except for one. To make sure these specific features are included in your rental, please contact your consultant for more details.
