Travelling through Africa with our dog, Bow Wow, has been an experience we will never forget. Sadly this adventure must come to an end for now so we can focus all of our energies on The Band4Hope Project.

We spent months driving all over Southern Africa in this incredibly reliable pimped out Defender. We had it serviced regularly wherever we were and it never let us down. With traction control, you can go pretty much anywhere in this 4×4 as you can see from the pictures below. No need for roads, we prefer dry riverbeds anyway.

This is your mobile home on wheels with everything you need. We’re including a complete package as detailed below.

This is a UK registered vehicle currently parked in Cape Town, South Africa with a current Carnet de Passage. It expires on 30th November 2012, though can be renewed for another year or more for further travel through Africa and beyond.

Scroll down for more pics and price.

    dear friend, unbeliavable, your car is magnific , congrats !

    Could you give more details how to warm the water for bath ?

    I have a 25l container with a shower and pump but my desire is warming the water during circulating it before the use.



  7. Sure, the water is pumped through a device fitted to the engine which heats the water using the coolant, so the engine needs to be running. It was done by a mechanic and you really need to purchase it from a 4×4 centre.

    The LR Defender 110 is my childhood dream car and is still even now my nunber one car. The day I own one, I would have lived my life. This particular LR advertised here is just awesome and unbelievably handy. I know I can’t afford a car right now, but I can avoid dreaming of LR Defender 110:
    Mini copper is my second dream car.
