This car was imported from Japan into Zambia in 2005 by an American Embassy worker who owned the car until 2009. It was subsequently purchased by an Australian VSO Volunteer who owned the car for 18 months before selling it to us in November 2010. She have successfully completed trips through Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe multiple times, tackled the sand in Chobe National Park in Botswana many times and seen much of Zambia before commencing on the East Africa journey from Zambia to Ethiopia.

The car has been well maintained with regular oil and filter changes (5,000Km interval) and has had many modifications made to transform it from a Japanese 'soccer mum' car into a true African Overland 4x4. We will have driven from Zambia to Ethiopia by the time you collect the car and fully expect it to be a reliable 4x4 capable of driving from Addis to Cape Town.

Clutch replaced in Sep 2009. Invoices are available.  Vehicle kept in dry inland conditions in South Africa; there is no rust on this vehicle.  We used 60/40 on/off road tyres, Goodyear and a "made in china" brand, which were absolutely fine for our journey.  You can of course spend hundreds on the BF Goodrich All Terrrains if you prefer.  As per South African regulations this vehicle was issued with a "Roadworthy" certificate when we bought it in Jan 2009.
  • History: Bought in South Africa in Jan 2009 as our family car while we were living in South Africa for two years.  The one previous owner was "in the trade" and manager of a Total Service station in Sandton, Johannesburg.

  • Look no further  if you want an unparalleled overland experience from Europe to Cape Town and you want to easily transfer ownership of the vehicle at the end of your trip!  This is all that you will need; a South Africa registered vehicle currently in Europe and wanting to "go home" and your Passport!

Isuzu Trooper - UK Registered - in Cape Town, RSA

Make: Isuzu

Model: Trooper Insignia

CC: 2999

Gearbox: Manual

Fuel: Diesel

Country of Registration: UK

Year of Registration: 2000

Current Location: Cape Town, SA

KM: 150,000 (95,000 miles)

Date of last service: will be serviced in Cape Town early August

This is a one owner from new one careful experienced driver top of the range British registered Isuzu. It's in excellent mechanical condition, with a few minor bumps and scrapes and a bit of a dent in the driver's door.

I drove it with three friends from London to Cape Town last year, with no breakdowns and no getting stuck. It had planned maintenance of a new clutch (first since new), new rear brake pads, and new heavy duty rear springs in Nairobi. It comes with a complete new rear differential which cost nearly 1800, as I thought it might be needed, but wasn't. Tyres are good on/off road tread pattern, about 30% worn, spare almost new. Engine is superb, and uses virtually no oil.

There is not much service history paperwork because I've used it almost exclusively in Asia and Africa, but it has been regularly serviced. It is currently safely parked in Cape Town and is on a Carnet de Passages in my name. The buyer would need to undertake to take the car out of South Africa before September 30th 2011 and return the carnet to me for cancellation - you would also need a carnet in your own name to continue your travel through Africa. Alternatively I might be prepared to get a new Carnet in my name with appropriate guarantees from the buyer.

Available from the beginning of September.

Toyota Hilux Double-Cab - ZA registered - 1997

  • Make: Toyota
  • Model: Hilux
  • CC: 2,400

  • Year of Registration: 1997
  • Current Location: Pietermaritzburg, Natal, South Africa
  • KM: 251,350km
  • Date of last service: Full service in October 2011

  • History:
    This Double-cab Hilux has been owned since March 2006 by a British ecologist, who each year has spent several months on his research programme in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana and also travelling in Nambia, Lesotho and South Africa. 

    It was customized in 2007 with a wide range of fittings and equipment, making it possible for two people to be self-sufficient for up to two weeks in the bush.  The Hilux has been lovingly maintained and is in excellent condition. The engine has only 251,350 km on the clock and uses less than a litre of oil per 10,000 km, even when working hard.  A new clutch has just been fitted and the vehicle comes with four new tyres and three good spares.

  • Extras:
    Modifications, Fittings and Accessories described below would cost around 80,000 Rand in South Africa - 8,000/9,200Euros.
  • Large aluminium canopy, purpose-designed by the owner and manufactured and fitted by a company specializing in modifying 4x4s into ambulances.  This canopy is very tough and lets in little dust.  It has a Fixed Fluorescent Light and Point for a Fridge or Second Light, both supplied from the second battery.
  • 4.7-tonne Tabor Winch
  • Aluminium roof carrier on top of the double cab with two 65-litre plastic water containers within fitted security brackets.  This carrier is designed also to take two safari tents and two safari boxes.  
  • Rear aluminium roof carrier on top of the canopy carries two spare wheels, a spade and a shovel, all in security-fittings. There is additional room for firewood or other supplies.
  • The third spare wheel is housed underneath the rear.
  • Gravity-feed stainless-steel tank inside the canopy carrying 180 litres.  Even heavy-laden and in sand and other difficult conditions, along with the standard tank of 70 litres this gives a range of at least 1,250 kilometres and in all probability 1,400 km.
  • Also in the canopy is the second battery, controlled by a dual-battery system in the cab.
  • To deal with the extra weight of the large canopy, petrol and water, as well as all the equipment, it has been fitted with Old Man Emu Suspension system and also has strengthened springs.
  • Camping Equipment: The tents and all the other equipment described below are mainly in very good condition.  To buy all this from scratch in South Africa would cost at least 25,000 Rand (2,500 2,875 Euros).
  • Howling Moon Bigfoot 3m X 3m Canvas Safari Tent        
  • Howling Moon Crow Tent 2.5 x 2.5m Canvas Safari Tent           
  • Free-standing Awning, poles, guys and pegs
  • Ground Sheets and Fine-meshed Matting
  • Safari Boxes (12)                                                    
  • 25-litre water containers                                                
  • Double Roll-up Mattress with canvas zip-up carrier, pillows, sheets, pillowcases, blankets                       
  • Director-style Camp Chairs (2)

  • Medical Kit (wide range of bandages, plasters, anti-burn and freeze-bags, medicines etc)                       
  •  2 x Fluorescent Lamps, one of which can be run from the point in the canopy and the other from the cigarette-lighter in the cab
  • 7-tonne Jack, Tools                                        
  •  Tow Rope and Tree Protector                                            
  • Bow Saw and Tomahawk Axe.

"With the addition of extra mattresses, bedding and two chairs this vehicle and all the equipment will enable a party of four to travel comfortably together."

      Some travel history on the Rangie:

      I did various trips to Botswana and southern Mozambique when I first bought her. Then I did a 20 000km, 6 month trip in 2001/2002 through southern and eastern Africa. Apart from mostly routine maintenance she ran with no breakdowns or major problems the whole trip. In 2004 we did a 7000km trip up the entire Mozambique coast. The gearbox, transfer box and propshafts were rebuilt on our return. Since then we have only done short trips in SA and 3 trips to Botswana but the car has done very little mileage in this time. I bought her from the second owner who had owned her for 9 years. Previous owner's details available if necessary.

      She's a good, honest overland truck with simple robust mechanicals and conventional electrics (i.e. no electronics) Spares are readily available in South Africa and in East Africa too. Kenya was the second biggest market in the world for Rangies after the UK and the Rangie chassis and engines were used in the Discovery Series 1 of which there are still plenty around. Since the odo only goes to 99 999km and since I have replaced the instrument cluster I don't know the exact mileage but it is under 300 000km. This is low as both the second owner and I used the Rangie as a holiday and weekend vehicle only.

      The Rangie currently gets driven every weekend. Everything is 100% and she's ready for the next big trip.

    1999 Toyota Hilux Raider Double Cab, SA Reg.

    • Make: Toyota
    • Model: Hilux Raider
    • CC: 3000
    • Gearbox: Manual
    • Fuel: Diesel
    • Country of Registration: South Africa
    • Year of Registration: 1999
    • Current Location: Tanzania
    • KM: 355,000
    • Date of last service: Dec 2010
    • Notes: This vehicle may seem expensive compared to some of the others on this page however the owner swears blind that this is money well spent:

      "Yes it is all the equipment and done up suspension and winch and things like that as written. Also the engine is in perfect condition and is a bullitproof engine. There are no cracks or anything like that anywhere on vehicle.

      Even though it has 355000 on the clock the engine does not use any oil at all and the compression is perfect. They say you don't need to touch this engine for 500,000kms. I spent 13,000 USD on equipment and tools and spairs all of which go with the vehicle.

      I spent $26,000 total. so for my 1.5 year trip it cost me $6000.00 if i sell it for 20,000. These models are hard to come bye and a lot stronger than the later ones.

      If you wish to resell this vehicle you will most likely get all or most of your money back at the end of your trip. These vehicles are hard to come by and really sought after. it took me 2 weeks to find this one and as soon as it came in i got it and there were others that wanted it. I was really lucky to be in the right place at the right time."
