When you go camping with a Conqueror Commander, your end destination is your only concern – because with this off-road caravan on the hitch, you can head up to Kosi Bay, the Okavango Delta and even the wide, open plains of the Serengeti.
There’s a handful of timeless inventions that still look and work like they did when they first saw the light. Things like barbed wire (patented by American Joseph F. Glidden in 1874), the paperclip (invented by Walter Hunt from New York, in 1849), and the fly swatter, which was designed out of necessity when the US state of Kansas was plagued by a terrible fly infestation. In off-road caravan terms you can say the same about the Conqueror Commander, because 15 years after it was launched it remains true to the blueprint. For a caravan to still have elements of the original version after such a long time means one thing: It’s a properly designed caravan, for campers who want to tow with their off-roader until they can’t drive any further. We hitched up the Commander and entered at the bottom of the Kruger National Park, went all the way to the top, and exited at the gates of Pafuri. In Shingwedzi the mother of all thunderstorms touched down, and while it was wreaking havoc on the mopane trees’ branches around us, the Commander remained unperturbed… ready for all the camping experiences yet to come.
