If you’re looking for a land rover defender safari to take on your next safari, the land rover defender safari is the one to go for. It’s a vehicle that offers the ultimate in off-road capability while retaining the refinement that people have come to expect from the luxury Land Rover brand.

The interior aims to balance the original Defender’s ruggedness with modern considerations and has been purposefully designed for safari use. The dashboard is simple but functional and the doors and centre console are left untrimmed, which creates a clean-lined cabin.

Inside the car, there’s plenty of space for two adults and their luggage. The front seats have a good amount of legroom and there are several storage locations for bags, including the center console. There are even large shelves for the front doors and a small cubby under the armrests.

On the outside, there are many cues from the original Defender, with circular headlights and a tall roof that sports safari windows and matching colour plates on the side windows. The exterior paint is in a range of shades that help the Defender blend into the African landscape.

Our test model had a 296-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Alternatively, there’s the P400 model that makes 395 horsepower from a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder with an electric supercharger and a mild hybrid system.

The Defender can handle a range of off-road conditions, and even manages some pretty extreme terrain when equipped with the Terrain Response system. The car’s adaptive air suspension and active traction control work together to deliver an effortless ride over rough surfaces while the chassis stays planted through bumpy and steep terrain. In addition, the Land Rover’s stability control helps to keep it from skidding or spinning out in deep mud.
