Overland Defender

This is Rafiki, the overland Land Rover Defender 110. It’s our home on wheels, our expedition vehicle. It takes us wherever we like; from the grassy fields in The Netherlands to the highest peaks of the Alps, and from the muddy swamps in Sweden to the Sahara desert in Africa.

Over the last few years we have converted this vehicle for overland travel. Kitting it out with everything that came to mind. From a compressor fridge to a rooftop tent, from a bullbar to a solar panel. Ready for a weekend camping trip or a one-year expedition through the most remote corners of the planet.

Below we will show you the highlights of the overland Defender.
