There are more obvious cars to take on safari than the Cayenne S, but surely none more entertaining
It’s a conflict we all have at some point in the calendar year. Do you go on safari, or a high-performance road trip? Mercifully you no longer have to choose, courtesy of the Porsche Travel Club. This rarefied outfit takes intrepid Porsche aficionados all over the world and recently embarked upon a Namibian safari in a convoy of white Cayennes. What else?
Tackling the 1250-foot sand dunes of Sossusvlei, exploring the Namib-Naukluft National Park and crossing the 1850-square-mile Etosha salt pan, where herds of giraffes are kept constantly on their toes by an estimated 300 lions and 400 cheetahs, Porsche Travel Club takes the concept of safari to a new level of leftfield luxury. Witness a hunt from the comfort of an 18-way adaptive sports seat and outrun an errant rhino on your way back to dinner by African moonlight. Where do we sign?
The Porsche Cayenne S has a combined fuel consumption of 9.8 - 9.5 l/100 km (28.8 - 29.7 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 229 – 223 g/km in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
