Natural Habitat Adventures unveils the planet's first hybrid safari vehicle

Colorado-based carbon-neutral ecotour outfitter, Natural Habitat Adventures, has created the world's first hybrid safari vehicle. Based on a four-wheel-drive hybird Toyota Highlander, the Hybrid Safari One boasts custom features such as beefier suspension, a new roof with sliding canvas top and specialized flip-up photography windows. In total, the vehicle depleted the coffers to the tune of $70,000 and took about a year to develop and build.

Typical safari vehicles return just twelve to thirteen miles per gallon. Hybrid Safari One is able to double that to 25 miles per gallon while providing all of the same capabilities. Interested in experiencing the great outdoors with as little environmental impact as possible? Tours of the western United States are currently planned for the hybrid safari vehicle, including tours of an exploration of Grand, Bryce and Zion Canyons. Have fun and tread lightly.
