Toyota Hilux Doube Cab 2.8 Safari

Available for both 2 and 4 people, the powerful Hilux Safari is the best choice when more power and better off-road qualities are required. For travels with 5 people (two adults and three children) the Hilux double cab can also be used.

If you’re with just two people, the back seat is especially useful for photo bags, day packs and supplies. It has much space and comfort. This Toyota Hilux Double Cab 4×4 Safari 2.8 has a separate boot where you can safely store your travel bags, together with all the camping equipment for your self-drive journey in Southern Africa.

The sleeping places are in the roof tents on top of the car. Optionally you can use a (big) dome tent to be set up on the ground to create more privacy. With the complete kitchen set and camping stove you can prepare your own meals. The equipment also includes a table and chairs.

In summary, the Hilux double cab 2.8 Safari offers you more space and comfort. The car is available from Windhoek Namibia. At an additional price available from other locations.

Min. age for this vehicle is 30 years. (additional fee applies for young drivers)

We would recommend Selfdrive4x4.com to our friends

We booked a last minute 17 day self drive trip through Namibia with this company and everything was just perfect. Contact with the company was very pleasant and they kept us posted with updates about the progress of our trip. Gps, maps, book and 12V equipment was sent to our home as soon as our trip was confirmed.

Price wise it was a great deal and everything in Namibia (car and layovers) were to our satisfaction. We would definitely book again with this company and we would recommend it to our friends.
