KANKKU Self Drive SAFARI Hire is about discovery - finding normally unseen parts of the Lake District by specialist 4x4. Kankku’s tough and capable ex army Land Rovers take you back to basics to simply enjoy the inspirational Lake District environment.

Drive yourself on a long and adventurous journey exploring a mix of historic off road Lakeland tracks and winding back roads all at your own pace.

A self drive SAFARI lets you do your own thing. We’ll give you the keys and a briefing plus maps, satellite gps and a road book direction system to take care of the navigation while you enjoy the drive. You can then add in a short walk, relaxing lunch stop or spectacular view point to complete your day of intrepid adventure.

A SAFARI experience is great with friends or family... and you can share the driving. We recommend a maximum of four people, but a very cosy seven is possible.

Weekend or 2 day hire on our Grand Tour 100km route from £350 per vehicle.

Or join us for a 3 day and 2 nights stay at Nook End, our new adventure destination above Ambleside. 2 nights self catering accommodation with use of our Ex-Army Landrovers to explore the National Park for 2 days. Prices from just £650.


A full day hire from £225 per vehicle.
