The eLandy was developed by the Dutch technology firm Emke Engineering, together with the Mukambi Safari Lodge in Zambia and Greensafaris, a subsidiary of the Dutch venture capitalist eVentures.
Emke Engineering is a Green Start-up Company focusing on electrifying 4x4 vehicles. There first product is the eLandy, an electric Land Rover Defender specially adapted for silent safaris.
The first 3 eLandys will be developed for Mukambi Safari Lodge in Zambia, who came up with the idea of organizing clean and silent safaris in the mighty Kafue National Parc in Zambia.
Mukambi Safari Lodge is located centrally in Kafue National Park. Kafue National Park is a truly wonderful place. It is the second largest national park in the world, and still one of the most wildest, yet to be discovered.
The new Moshi Safari Lodge in Kafue National Park, Zambia, will be the first to use the eLandy, starting with the next season (2014). Besides the eLandy, this brand new lodge features more eco-technologies and will take the concept of eco-safaris to a whole new level.
