Off Road Activities





Once you have joined Kankku on one of their technical adventures, the next stage of your journey off road might be a Self Drive Safari.

A Kankku Safari 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.

If a Safari is the right day for you, we will start the day with a briefing plus introduction to the map and a road book direction system which you will use to navigate. You can add in a short walk, relaxing lunch stop or visit to a spectacular view point along the route 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!
