Our 12-Seater safari vehicles are operating in Southern Africa (i.e. SA, Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana).

It also has an on-board fridge and a PA system. The seats are all seat-belted and forward facing, with 4 across the rear and a row of single window seats on the left and a double row of seats to the right (especially nice for couples). Clients would then rotate seating to give everyone a chance at the window. Unlike the bigger over-landing vehicles, the driver’s cab forms part of the body so that the clients’ forward view is not restricted, and the guide is able to converse directly with the clients, even when sitting up front.

The below vehicles are the 7-Seater Land Cruisers that are based in East Africa. These Cruisers only offer window seats and in between the 2 back seats there is an on-board fridge for storing drinks. The fold-down stair and convenient exterior door handles make it easy to climb aboard, while the centre aisle allows movement around the vehicle when it is stationery. All the seats are equipped with safety belts and the front left seat folds upwards, so as not to obstruct entry to the vehicle. The vehicle is also equipped with air-conditioning and an on-board battery charging facility for cameras and mobile phones. Tinted windows ensure maximum comfort from the high temperatures, as well as a unique opening system – normal safari vehicles all have sideways sliding windows, which offer very little space to photographers, while Jenman vehicles have drop down windows that offer a far larger opening area. The pop up roof is then the cherry on the top… Designed as a single roof structure, it offers great shade from the hot African sun and the chance to stand on the seats for a better view, as well as stretching the legs! Our new 9-Seater cruiser (displayed at Indaba) is exactly the same, except that it has 2 extra window seats… These vehicles are used in East Africa for now.
