Twisted Automotive has agreed a deal to become the exclusive Europe-wide distributor of Hannibal roof tents and adventure equipment.
Based in South Africa, Hannibal Safari Equipment is recognised as the global leader for roof racks, roof tents, awnings and a host of other accessories.
As part of their partnership with the brand, Twisted will sell and fit the equipment, either as part of the engineering of new builds or as additions to existing vehicles.
Twisted showcased Hannibal’s ultra-deluxe roof tent at the Great Yorkshire Show last month and the business has moved quickly since then to formalise a deal to provide the products to an eager UK audience.
And while the threat of lions and tigers may not be an immediate issue for those enjoying the great outdoors on British shores, the range’s flexibility, practicality and all-round ‘wow factor’ is set to capture the imagination of adventurers young and old.
Twisted Automotive founder and managing director, Charles Fawcett, said: “We’ve wanted to bring something like this to Twisted for a while now, because a big part of the Defender culture is the freedom of jumping in the car, picking a spot on the map, and heading off for the weekend.
We’re often impressed by our customers’ own attempts to create and fit tents to the top of their vehicles, and with Hannibal tents, you can capture that spirit of adventure without having to worry if you’re equipped to face the elements.
Hannibal’s accessories have been specially designed to be fitted to vehicles like ours – and have been tested in the harshest African terrains and weather conditions. We’re now all set to start fitting them to Defender vehicles here in the UK.
I believe it’s going to transform the camping experience.”

Additions to existing vehicles are available to a number makes and models and may require a particular roof rack.
