HI CHRIS,
THANK YOU AND WELL DONE FOR THE UPDATE ON YOUR NEW VEHICLES. I LOOK FORWARD TO ONE DAY DOING A DRIVE IN ONE OF THESE VEHICLES.
BY THE WAY, LANDROVER ARE STILL BY FAR THE BEST SAFARI VEHICLES ON THE CONTINENT!
SEE YOU ALL SOON.
KIND REGARDS, AND BEST WISHES FOR CHRISTMAS AND THE NEW YEAR.

Hi Ted,
Thanks for your note. I agree, the only thing that will beat the current Land Rover is a silent electric Land Rover.
We look forward to taking you out in one of them one day.
Regards
Chris

I had no doubt that it would be the Londolozi Family who would pioneer this amazing new product – a battery-operated Land Rover. Who would have thought in the 1980’s and this would be the future of safari?! Well done to you all and I would someday love to experience a totally silent safari on one of your revolutionary vehicles. Wishing you all continued good luck and good fortune.
Warm wishes,
Ken

Have a happy holiday!

Fantastic news Chris! I hope I will be able to return to Londolozi and try out the electric Land Rovers once you start using them!

We hope the Land Rover will remain an open vehicle, as this is a superior way to see the animals without viewing through a window or rooftop. Thank you for the excellent article.

Hi Jan,
Land Rovers always arrive as closed vehicles and the lodges then have them converted privately. I agree with you that open Land Rovers are the best way of viewing animals and that is why at Londolozi we will always use open Land Rovers.

Having had the opportunity to drive the car a few times I can honestly say that over and above the environmental benefits, it will in fact be better suited to being a game drive vehicle than the diesel model! The power and torque in low range was astounding.

Wow that is fantastic news! Congratulations to you Dave Varty & your amazing team of dedicated Rangers. Well done to you all & to Land Rover for their support.

I love the thought of no emissions and noise but would not consider returning year after year if the experience of the open air vehicle was not available. The idea of an enclosed vehicle or even a roof would vastly take away from this experience.

Hi Evette,
The vehicle we tested (as featured in the video) was a research vehicle straight from the UK and that is why it is closed. As mentioned in my reply to Jan, Londolozi will always use open vehicles.
We look forward to your next visit.
Regards
Chris
