Richard Wynne rubs a very competent team, and somehow seems to have an excellent supply chain. Probably the best Land Rover garage in North or Central Africa.

A large well run (read: German run) garage with all the facilities, but hampered by a poor supply chain - you may need to visit the second hand parts market around the corner - an amazing experience in it's own right.

This is where everybody in the know in Greece takes their Landies. Antonis really knows his Land Rovers, and can offer second hand parts at good prices. His labour is amazingly reasonable, and I couldn't fault his work.

An enthusiasts garage. This is where I finally managed to get my rear springs sorted out - the team know LRs well and are well known in Nairobi as being the place to go if you want to avoid the main dealership.

It's a dirt lot garage, but Athumani knows his stuff and has a good team -I was surprised at the speed and efficiency of his work
