    These are the expedition vehicles we used on safari at the Qorokwe camp in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. Never a problem with any, and they were as safe as you can be with gigantic wild animals roaming around. An elephant hunt is $50k a pop, w/ lions much more expensive than that. Good luck!

    be custom-built that way?

    I am trying to learn the true potential of TACOMA on the wild veldts and in the jungles of Africa.

    After all, this is a Taco forum.

    I want orginality: individuality: exculsive undertakings: wild imagination: doing something unequivocal: without compare!!: fantasy island!!: not the status quo: MY way or the paved US highway.

    And my safari vehicles should fare well on the Aussie Outback, the Alaskan tundra, the South American Amazon, and in the Indian jungles where tigers roam on shikar. A worldly outdoor fleet of trucks.

    on the savannah. Apparently, it is a no-go for that purpose by the consensus of the input here.

    Would the Tacoma even cut it on the Aussie Outback? Probably no way there too, mate!

    It might make a great varminting rig for California or coyote country in the American West and I thought the Nevada desert was tough!


    Thank you, sirs!

    Good night!

    :D

    I know this thread is complete BS but for arguments sake lets say you did want a US Company to build a safari capable taco...

    This past summer when I visited CBI they were outfitting a Ford Raptor for a Ranch in Mexico to hunt Coyote... There was pics of it on their FB page.

    Unreal what they can do... If any US Company could do a build like that they could.
