Land Rover & Land Cruiser Rental

Kwenda Safari holds a large fleet abailable of fully equipped Land Rover & Land Cruiser for rentals travelling throughout Southern Africa and as far North as Kenya. The vehicles are new models in good condition and well maintained.

In addition to the factory fitted features of our 4wd vehicles, the fleet is equipped with proven safari and camp equipment necessary for safari travel, which includes long-range fuel tanks, large fresh water tank with outside tap, a dual battery system, strong aluminium roof racks, sturdey bull bars and a host of other items listed on the list supplied below.

Cat 3:
Land Rover has stopped the production of this most famous and classic in shape off-road model early 2016 and the successor is not readily introduced into fleet management in South Africa. We are therefore not yet in a position to safely offer you this model as a mode for your safari. However, the Land Cruiser as an equally rugged and most versatile 4x4 safari vehicle has successfully integrated into our fleet and will please you with highest off-road capabilties and best reliabily.
