I am selling this incredible vehicle which has been loved by the six owners who have experienced an incredible journey in Africa with Maggie.
Her spec's are the following (of which a lot has been replaced in 2016).

Plus a whole host of other things that are useful for an overland Journey
I think her price of $8,000 is reasonable for a bit of overland history and the character that Maggie oozes. She is a real conversational starter.
I have done two overland journey's in Africa (Plus countless trips in Botswana) with Maggie and I will be extremely sad to part with her, but I do want to sell her to someone interested in continuing her journey as an overland vehicle. My time to start a family with my wife is soon and it's time someone else enjoyed the experience of Africa with her.
You can read about the vehicle and our experiences with Maggie here:Maggieinafrica dot com
She is currently being stored with a LR mechanic in Gaborone. Please get in touch if you are interested in buying her. I can be contacted through here or by emailing me on Noel.Peries at gmail dot com
The vehicle is Botswana registered (I lived there for a few years). So if you are thinking of driving her through Africa, the carnet can be obtained by the AA in Johannesburg which is a 4 hour drive.
Her road tax is until Jan 2018.
