The Toyota Hilux 4x4, pictured below, was generously sponsored by Lydenburg Toyota for the Umbabat Warden, Bryan Havamann, to use in the execution of his duties. In particular it will assist Bryan enormously in the execution of his counter poaching responsibilities. A sincere thank you to Lydenburg Toyota for their commitment and support in the fight against poaching.

Not only is the vehicle brand new, but it has after market fitment of specialised off-road gear generously sponsored by Lydenburg 4x4 Mega World. This includes Old Man Emu raised suspension, high quality off-road tyres, additional driving spot lights, load bin rails and load bin rubberising.
