WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
As my wife and Iwere spending increasingly more time in the bush, we decided in 2017 to buy an off-road trailer. After a lot of time spent researching our options, weeventually decided on a Bushwakka Sundowner. This has turned out to be the bestdecision we could have made. Having slept in our Sundowner 180 nights in everchanging Kalahari conditions over the past 2 years, we really got to know it,it never let us down and has become our second home. I love the way it tows soeasily behind my car – basically, if the Hilux can go there, then the Sundownercan too.
It is incredibly easy to set up on arrival and pack up again at theend of a stay, even for a pensioner like me. Inside, the bed is big andcomfortable, there is loads of cupboard space and I really enjoy sitting at thedesk and working on my laptop. My wife, who loves to cook, finds the kitchenarea perfect and it certainly has everything necessary for our very long tripsinto the bush.
We have neveronce regretted our decision to buy a Sundowner and trips into the Kalahari havebecome much more relaxing, homely and enjoyable. It’s wonderful to leave atfirst light and just have to lock the back door. Even better is to return afterthe evening drive and not have to set up anything…….just sitting enjoyingthe final glow of sunset, as the night sounds of the African bush begins andsip at something cold.
Since buying ourfirst Sundowner 4 years ago, we have been treated wonderfully by the wholeBushwakka team. It was, and still is, very comforting for us to know that thereis a backup team in Worcester, which will do everything within their power tomake owning a Sundowner a wonderful experience.Rodger Brown
When we decided two years ago to buy an off-road camping trailer for our stay in Africa, our choice quickly fell on the company Bushwakka Africa. We already knew off-road trailers from various manufacturers from many trips through southern Africa. Bushwakka’s presentations on the internet were was very informative, compared to other providers, many details were developed in the most sophisticated way and evidently constantly being optimized based on practical experience.
But how should we make a purchase from Germany?
In short, it wasn’t a problem at all!
Starting with a very pleasant email contact, Jasper Hewitt made almost everything possible so that we could first have a look at our dream model (Sundowner EVO 2) during our next stay in Namibia. Jasper personally traveled to Windhoek from South Africa especially for this, we hadn’t expected that.
Since the live tour confirmed our virtual impressions and expectations in every respect, we ordered our “Sundowner Evolution II”. A decision that I haven’t regretted for a minute. Of course, at the beginning, I was concerned about whether the deal would go smoothly across two continents and with the handover of at least half the purchase price already made … ?! But despite the distance and despite Corona, everything went very reliably and seriously.
Jasper regularly sent us pictures of the production status of our trailer, which of course really fueled the anticipation of the handover, which would be in 6 months on our return to Africa. We could choose the handover time ourselves and Jasper transferred the trailer to Windhoek and also took care of the registration and approval in Namibia so that we could take over our top-quality sundowner in September 2021.
With his friendly, competent, and resourceful manner, Jasper turned the handover into a very special event. The entire trailer was built up and down again under his guidance. Very useful, because once you’ve done something yourself, you can remember the details later. Although we were impressed by the simplicity and speed of setting up and dismantling the camp at the Sundowner, there are a few things to consider.
We then undertook the maiden voyage to the Kaokofeld with some very demanding off-road sections. We just wanted to know …
..our towing vehicle an old Toyota Hilux Raider that has already been through a lot, and the question was of course whether the trailer would also take part ?!
To cut it short: whether tricky uphill or downhill passages, whether Pulfersand stretches, whether deep sand, whether fast drive over washboard slopes or water crossings and of course on the solid tar road…. The trailer shows excellent driving characteristics.
It must be added here that the Bushwakka company individually adapts the axles and the tires of the trailer to the existing towing vehicle, which not only has a positive effect on the driving characteristics but of course, also enables the spare wheels to be used universally.
Although it had rained quite a lot in Namibia last year, the north, unfortunately, didn’t get much of it and the already dusty roads here after 3 years without significant precipitation caused a layer of dust on the car and trailer, as I’ve rarely seen before. So it is nice in the afternoon when you set up the camp that the sundowner is actually perfectly sealed. No dust in any sealed area, that’s great and a huge gain in comfort. We traveled 2600km of rough dusty roads in Namibia.
The kitchen, the shower, the completely self-sufficient solar-powered 90ltr refrigerator, the lighting everywhere you need it, the enormous storage space, … are also a huge gain in comfort.
We can only warmly recommend the trailer and, above all, the service.
Many thanks to Jasper Hewitt and his team.Wolfram Juergens – Germany
We are a family of keen campers. When our children got to an age when they wanted their own space, we saw the opportunity to move into a trailer that was lighter, simpler and easier to set up. The Safari Tourer ticks all those boxes: it’s light, sets up easily and quickly, and it’s tough enough to go anywhere we want to go. We are impressed by the thoughtful and functional design; everything is right where it needs to be.
We love the unique Bushwakka kitchen that is second to none in our opinion. There is more storage throughout the Tourer than some trailers twice the size, and there’s plenty of payload to carry it all. Last but not least, we are super impressed with the fantastic customer service we’ve received from Jasper, who has gone out of his way to help us with all the questions we had. We’re excited to be part of the Bushwakka family!Julie and Matt – Australia
We recently purchased a Safari Tourer from Bushwakka that was tailor-made to our specifications. From the onset, it was a pleasure to engage with Jasper and his team. They are professional and open to finding the best solutions to any challenge. My wife and I have been Overlanding Africa for the past 20 years and decided to upgrade our level of comfort when camping whilst not compromising on our ability to visit really remote areas that are generally difficult to access.
The Safari Tourer was our chosen option as it provides both luxury and convenient camping whilst at the same time light enough to go into serious 4×4 terrain. After two trips, we are starting to get to know the trailer and a few things stand out.
Most prominently is the ability to quickly set up camp, the comfortable sleeping arrangement, the very practical kitchen and awning, ample storage space, and last but not least the very good all-around lighting system and solar-powered system that will last for days in cloudy weather conditions. Overall a very pleasant experience and highly recommended!Werner and Kozett Myburgh
We bought our Bushwakka Sundowner EVO in September this year. Being experienced 4×4 travelers and campers we did a lot of “thinking and investigating” before we decided on Bushwakka. We also discussed it with Bushwakka owners and friends. The deal maker was the “Bush-Fan” and the comfortable stairs. (We are both over 60)
As a woman, the comfortable 2mx2m bed and how easy it is to make up the bed through the window is a bonus. The other positives are the great “kitchen” that really works well. We chose the double basin option which is great and our gas stove is on the same drawer as the fridge and that works very well for our setup.
The sidewall for the “Bush-Fan” is fantastic as well as the bottom skirt for that extra comfort when a cold wind is blowing.
We love the new EVO and can not wait to go camping.

Our family roots are in Africa and no better way than to regularly re-visit these roots with our off-road BUSHWAKKA Safari Tourer. I was introduced to the Bushwakka concept +/- 20 years ago when we purchased our 1st Bushwakka trailer and have subsequently, together with my family, spent almost all our holidays in a BUSHWAKKA. We treasure our memories and enjoy looking at our family album. always with a BUSHWAKKA in the background!
The BUSHWAKKA off-road trailer is robust and reliable. Their design and construction overshadow its competitors. The BUSHWAKKA factory in Worcester renders an excellent backup service
I have no hesitation in recommending the BUSHWAKKA off-road TOURER for your ultimate Bush experienceSTEPHAN VAN DIJK
I’ve been a loyal Bushwakka owner since 2016. I settled on a Safari Tourer as the perfect off-road trailer for my needs. I conducted extensive research on all available off-road trailers before purchasing a Bushwakka. The quality of the Bushwakka models stood out and the customer-friendly and extremely competent Bushwakka staff pushed them far above every other manufacturer. The Bushwakka Safari Tourer is a lightweight, maneuverable, and durable off-road camping trailer that is ideal for the adventurer on the go.
When I’m ready for some time in the bush, I can hook up and be on the road in just minutes. Once I find the perfect spot, I can have my entire camp set up in less than 15 minutes and be ready to cook, sleep and enjoy the most remote parts of the world with the comforts of home within easy reach. The Tourer is extremely well designed and can be configured to meet the needs of the individual owner. It features a well-equipped but simple and convenient kitchen with storage, cooking surfaces, and a fridge. Just when you think you need a light or PowerPoint, you look up, and there it is. Plenty of water and plenty of renewable power keep your stress to a minimum and comfort at a maximum.
I trust the quality of these trailers as well as the support and expertise of the Bushwakka team. While I lived in Africa, I took my Safari Tourer everywhere and it never failed me. Now, I’ll be taking my new Safari Tourer through its paces in the United States. If you’re looking for a camping trailer that will take your creature comforts into rugged and remote wilderness, the Safari Tourer is the perfect place to start.Ed Newcomer – USA
