We had a rather unusual set up in this aspect of our plans as rather than picking the car for the trip, we picked the trip for the car.
Land Rover Defenders are renowned for being among the best off road vehicles of all time. Their simplicity and literally battle hardened design, combined with the fact they have been in Africa longer than any other car, make them the perfect choice for this adventure. Parts are widely available should they be needed as are mechanics who are familiar with the make… or so we keep telling ourselves.
With this being the case, it’s pretty handy that we had one kicking about.
