Land Rover Defenders that are kitted out for camping from a base in Somerset

Bumping along in a Land Rover, watching hazy sunsets and having a campfire under the stars… it’s the stuff of safari dreams. But there’s no need to travel to faraway shores to have an overland adventure. How about one that starts in Somerset?

Defender Campers hires out Land Rovers that are kitted-out for camping from a base near Taunton in south west Somerset. It’s the perfect place to set off on a road trip around the South West: on the doorstep of Devon and not far from Cornwall. Whether you want to surf, swim, hike, kayak, cruise or simply relax in style, the Defender Campers can get you where you need to go and offer an easy way to set up camp. Not to mention that they’ll be turning heads. Each of the Defender Campers vehicles is a stylish, iconic Land Rover Defender with a pop-up roof that’ll be the envy of whichever campsite you choose.

This hire company comes from a couple with plenty of on-the-road experience and not only are their vehicles equipped with all the essentials but their range of optional extras have been carefully chosen to add to the adventure. You can pop on a paddleboard, get yourself a Go Pro, or add a fire pit to customise your Defender Camper kit before you start your very own South West safari.

​Defender Campers gives you the chance to experience and enjoy Wild Camping in the heart of the West Country, whilst experiencing the thrill and adventure of exploring in a Land Rover Defender Camper. We have two Defenders available for hire, each offering its own unique personality.

​Located in the South of Somerset, just a mile from the M5, we are at the gateway to Devon and Cornwall. From here you can explore Dartmoor, Exmoor, Somerset, Dorset, the South coast or South Wales.

​Our vehicles are fully prepared to take you anywhere you choose to go, and include all the camping gear you'll need. Just pack your clothes and essentials and get out exploring.

Should you want more than camping gear, we can also offer you Paddle Boards, Firepits, GoPros and much more to make your Adventure a memory to last a lifetime.
