4x4 Adventure Tours is owned and operated by self-confessed Land Rover enthusiast and off-road expert Tom Parkes.
Tom's obsession with Land Rovers started when he bought and re-built 1960 Series 2 which had been used as a St John's ambulance. Re-named Russell, he drove him overland from Bristol to Cape Town in 2001. Covering 25,000 miles in 10 months he went through some of Africa's toughest terrains across the Western Sahara, West Africa, Chad, Sudan and Ethiopia and down through Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana and South Africa.
Tom now leads interesting and exciting 4x4 adventure tours throughout England and Wales plus the Pyrenees and Morocco. Running these tours is really an excuse to continue the adventure and to share his experiences and expertise .
All our guides are offroad driver qualified and first aid trained. Your Safety and enjoyment are our highest priorities.
