About Orange 4×4

Orange 4×4 Ltd  is owned and run by self-confessed Land Rover enthusiast and off-road expert Tom Parkes.
​It builds on the continued success of 4×4 Adventure Tours ltd which has been running offroad and overland tours since 2010.
Tom’s obsession with Land Rovers started when he bought and re-built a 1960 Series 2 which had been used as a St John’s ambulance. Re-named Russell (the Rover), he drove it overland from Bristol to Cape Town in 2001.
Having trained and worked as a professional engineer, Tom is able to combine his off road expertise and engineering experience to provide unique solutions at Orange 4×4 ltd

Guiding 4×4 Tours has given us a unique insight into the operation and capabilities of 4×4 vehicles in real world situations. We have taken literally thousands of vehicles though some of the harshest terrain imaginable. Mud, water, sand, grit, dust, rocks, ruts, corragations, heat and cold – it all takes its toll.  What works, what doesn’t work, 4×4 systems, tyres, traction, reliabity issues, common problems, every type of  vehicle imaginable, we have seen it all.
