I have owned and driven Land Rovers in East Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer and Baja, California much of my life. We owned Atlantic British Export here in the United States for years (the North American source for Land Rover and Range Rover parts) and had never seen a safari modification like Thomson’s with the higher rear seat sections, the taller windows and windshield. Wow!! What a difference from a passenger’s point of view!! Compared to any of the other safari machines out there, the visibility toward the horizon to the front and sides…from any of the back seats is unsurpassed.
Even my oldest daughter who was notorious for car sickness never had a problem on any of the rough roads. We got a chance to ride in another (non-Thomson) safari vehicle on the way to the balloon ride in the Serengeti and were immediately reminded of how we had to bend over at the neck from the back seats in order to see around the driver’s head and out the wind shield. The Thomson Rovers are by far the best maintained and set-up machines on the road…and the drivers are incredible too! Nzuri kabissa!
