Jurgens (South-African RV manufacturer) offers strong, sturdy yet practical and comfortable Safari Xcape and Xplorer off-road travel trailers desgned to face challenges of wilderness.
It should be not surprising that Jurgens (South-African manufacturer of RVs operating since late 1950’s) offers the series of off-road travel trailers
As we know, this region of Africa is rather dominated by vast areas of no-man lands (bush, savannas…) than modern network of highways. Off-road campers seem then to be an obvious choice for anyone attempting to explore wilderness.
The series of Safari off-road travel trailers includes models Xcape and Xplorer (both in standard and 2016 versions). Both designs show strong influence of challenges, namely:

Jurgens seems to answer these often-conflicting requirements. As you can see both models belong to the class of “Pop-Top” trailers. This design concept limits the height of the trailer on the road, provides comfortable headroom in camping configuration and still makes it “well-protected” (read-it “safe”). Both trailers come with bull-bars (in Canada known as “Moose-bars”) as well as “Diamond Plate”-type steel stone protection all around the trailer.
Other common characteristics of both trailers are “Slide-Out” tents and exterior galleys. In Xcape (smaller trailer) the tent opens on the curbside while in Eplorer in front over the tongue. (please note that South-Africa has "left-side" traffic). In both cases tents are well-above the ground level. Due to the fact that canvas-based tents make part the trailer we could say that both models make class of “Pop-Top Hybrid Travel Trailers”.
Exterior galleys a fully equipped with gas stove, sink w/hot and cold water, pantry and impressively large fridge w/freezer. Both galleys are protected by large awnings (standard features).
