Kingsley Holgate takes the new Land Rover Discovery into the ‘real Africa’ – Leisure Wheels
Kingsley Holgate and his team of intrepid adventurers have set off on another expedition through Africa. This time in the all-new Land Rover Discovery.
Kingsley’s son Ross is leading the expedition in a specially kitted-out All-new Discovery, fitted with 18-inch rims and “tough Cooper Tyres”, a rear-mounted winch and Front Runner roof-rack. Kingsley and Sheelagh are in another such Disco, while bringing up the rear is ‘Mashozi’ the big old Landy 130 Defender.
Mashozi is carrying, besides a whole lot of kit, veterans of many Kingsley Holgate expeditions, Bruce Leslie and Mozambican Babu Cossa. The Defender is fitted with a tough Old Man Emu suspension, ARB bull-bar and winch, and Engel fridges from 4×4 Mega World, with Front Runner supplying roof racks and other essential equipment and a specialized Alu-cab back.
