The first Land Rover was designed in 1948 in the United Kingdom by Maurice Wilks, chief designer at the British car company Rover on his farm in Newborough, Anglesey. It is said that he was inspired by an American World War II Jeep that he used one summer at his holiday home in Wales. The first Land Rover prototype 'centre steer' was built on a Jeep chassis. A distinctive feature is their bodies, constructed of a lightweight rustproof proprietary alloy of aluminium and magnesium called Birmabright. This material was used owing to post war steel shortages and a plentiful supply of post-war aircraft aluminium. This metal's resistance to corrosion was one of the factors that allowed the vehicle to build up a reputation for longevity in the toughest conditions. It is reckoned that 75% of all those ever built are still in use.

“Daktari” (a language of Swahilee, means Doctor) It was a story of a veterinarian who learnt a behavior of the animal in order to help every kind of animal in West Africa. Daktari was a television series that aired on CSB from 1966-1969. The show had distinctive accompanying music that was a fusion of jazz and African influences. Shelly Manne contributed music; he released an affiliated record, Daktari: Shelly Manne Performs and Conducts His Original Music for the Hit TV Show, on the Atlantic Records label in 1968. According to the liner notes on the album, Manne and his fellow percussionists play ankle and wrist jingles, Thailand mouth organs, aungloongs, ocarinas, vibraphones, tympani, and different kinds of marimba.


The original Corgi company never made another safari toy, but in 1998, new Corgi issued a commemorative Daktari set. No.07104 included the old 1/43rd scale Land Rover, but the wheels are different, and the rear window in the cab is larger.

The box is particularly pleasing, with Daktari logo, Clarence artwork, publicity stills and photos of a Land Rover on Safari. Although it’s not a limited edition, it may prove a little harder to find than its contemporaries. Shop here.

I do not usually review item's I buy on Amazon yet I am so pleased with the quality and detail of this product, I just had to rave. I have been collecting die cast models from the Franklin and the Danbury mint's for the past 20 years. I first purchased an inexpensive fire truck for my son. He loved and appreciated it so much, I became interested. I examined it and was quite impressed. I bought him 3 others. I than ordered the entire presidential series after I bought the model of Kennedy's blue Lincoln. The paint finish is unmatched. The detail and molding is hard to believe. No details were missed! Even small presidential seals adhered to the inside back doors. There is even carpeting on the floor boards and trunk! It is much better quality than the mint's for a 3rd of the price. Try it, you'll be hooked. - Timothy P. Madrid "Timitzer"-CA
