Dusk approaches quickly. The road ahead blooms with dust from the convoy before you. The hot sun closing behind the foliage of the jungle surrounding you, automatic headlights flick on with telepathy at the shadows that form. An order comes in over your radio from the advance officer to tighten the formation, your foot pressing the pedal harder knowing the approach to the awaiting ferry to Lusambo is the perfect ambush point.
The UN provided 2017 Land Rover Discovery TD6 has been your Swiss Army knife of transportation this trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. With 200 kms of diesel left from the 800 kms that was available when your tank was brimmed in Tshikapa, you ease into the cooled Windsor Leather seats, and select CCR’s Fortunate Son on the InControl Touch Pro Navigation System. With enough power to completely drown out your radio, the Meridian 380W sound system pumps the sound of helicopter rotors and freedom through the 7 seat interior and dual moon roofs.
As the convoy reaches the ferry crossing into town, the 20 inch tires digging into the dirt as you come to an authoritative stop. The sunset fading from brilliant oranges and reds into the royal blue of advancing darkness, you head to the rear of the Disco, and in one seamless foot gesture, have the tailgate open with access to the tools of a security consultants trade.
Eyes peeled as the first vehicle is loaded onto the ferry, the LED signature running lights give a soft glow of home onto the cooling African soil. The order for the final vehicle to load crackles over your radio, just as you flip up your night vision goggles and hop back into the civilization that the Discovery interior provides. Disembarking the ferry into the relative safety of Lusambo, you realize what Land Rover has created.
The Disco has always been the taste of home that you can bring with you, no matter the severity of the situation. Equally at home doing a school run as it is doing a security run for the United Nations, the Discovery combines everything you need to get there, and what you want when you arrive. It truly is, a Land Rover.
