Self Driving UAZ Buhanka

What is a Buhanka and what will you tell my friends back home about the adventure you are going to have in Central Asia?  Overlanding in Central Asia is quite easy and with a Buhanka you will fit in just right.  These 4x4 vans are road ready and provide the most authentic experiences possible with the ease of doing it yourself.  The UAZ Buhanka was created during the Soviet Union and were the idea 4x4 van for the Soviet Army.  Amazingly not much has changed in the overall design, it still looks like a loaf of bread and it still has sold axels.  But if it’s not broken don’t fix it right?  Check out a film about the vans.

I have 5 UAZ Buhankas some are build out with a bed in the back and some are not built out yet.  Let's make sure you book the right van for your trip. 4 of the vans are new and I have 1 vintage van.
