Very exciting day out, a full 8 hrs. Incredibly well run and very professional. Some of the best off roading I’ve experienced. Fantastic trails accompanied with exceptional views and a wonderful lunch. I cannot recommend KANKKU highly enough.

We, together with our son and daughter in law had a fabulous day off roading with the Kankku Team. The day was bought as a birthday present for my husband which was a 9:15 start. What a wonderful day, expert guidance and laugh a minute!...More

Had the best time, none of us had done off road driving before but love Landrovers and 4x4s. No age restriction either, just bring your driving license (for the 2 hour trip, not sure about longer ones).

I have do a lot of off roading and this was SPECTACULAR. We went for the 5 hour drive and the technical abilities to get up and down the bedrock is true to the Defender form. I would ABSOLUTELY do it again.

No - not always. Maybe useful to get a specific day but I walked off the street and booked for two days later.
