Our safari vehicles are our pride and joy.

We operate a fleet of specially-adapted, constantly-updated, open-sided Toyota Land Cruisers, giving you uninterrupted views and proximity to the Bush. This is the best way to bring visitors close to nature and the wonders of the Masai Mara.

We designed our 4x4s ourselves, drawing on over 100 years of African off-road driving experience. The attention to detail is infinite, with particular emphasis on comfort and safety: our prime objective is to get you as close to the action as possible, whilst remaining totally safe.

Your 4X4 is fitted with a VHF radio, spare tyres, an electric winch and extra high lift jack and spades for muddy terrain. Reliability is ensured by replacing all our vehicles regularly – and maintaining each to the highest standard.

The Best Safari Vehicles in the Mara?

Although each Land Cruiser can seat nine in comfort, unless requested by larger groups (such as families) we carry a maximum of six guests. This ensures unhindered sight lines and photographic angles. One seat, however, is reserved: a bonnet-mounted platform is used within the Conservancy alone, creating the perfect viewing position for our Masai spotter.

  • Safety allied to brilliant visibility
  • Maximum room and comfort
  • Each vehicle is fully equipped with necessities and helpful extra touches


Comfort is maximised through upholstering spacious bucket seats in canvas and leather, augmented by arm rests and storage pockets. Exposed stanchions are swathed in padding, softening any unexpected contact when bumping across rough ground. Every vehicle carries wildlife reference books, binoculars and camera charging points in case your battery runs low during the day.

Each Land Cruiser is a portable canteen, carrying a buffet lunch, teas and coffees, plus chilled beer and wine. Blankets and hot water bottles provide much-valued warmth during early morning outings.
