New Land Rovers: Lion Sands and Tinga

October 22, 2012  By: Gretchen

Today we have something a little different – vehicle news from our partners at Lion Sands and Tinga in South Africa.

All of the land rovers at both Lion Sands and Tinga have been upgraded, ensuring operations continue to align with the long-term philosophy of being more environmentally friendly. This upgrade has enabled us to operate more efficient vehicles, coupled with the added benefit of giving our guests a quieter and more comfortable safari experience.

For the enthusiast, the vehicle specifications & benefits are:

  • 2.2 L engine which is smaller, resulting in lower carbon emissions
  • Sound-proofed engine housing which significantly reduces noise
  • Waterproof iPad holders in central consoles
  • LED side lights to illuminate steps at night
  • New neutral grey color (tested and proven to be the most neutral colour for our surroundings)
  • 220V charging points to charge cameras and other photographic equipment
  • Non essential electronics such as ABS, aircon etc have been removed in order to make the vehicle more environmentally efficient
  • Bucket seats improved – built in springs for comfort, and arm rests if required
  • Fully customizable seating ranging from 6 passengers (with centre consoles) to 9 passengers (with no consoles)
  • Blue tooth radio connectivity to assist in reducing radio static

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
