Founded in 2008, Ultimate Safaris specializes in well-orchestrated privately guided naturalist safaris for individuals as well as for small and intimate groups and we boast one of the most experienced, creative and respected ‘tribes’ in the Namibian safari industry. We are considered to be amongst the leading authorities on travel to Namibia, often pioneering new ways in which to experience the country, and we ensure exceptional leadership and a real connection to the people and places we take guests to visit. Our driving force is a carefully selected tribe of experts who are passionate about all aspects of Namibia and who understand the importance of seamless guest services. It is this that allows us to ensure that our trade partners are best placed to offer truly memorable safaris to their guests in one of the most awe-inspiring countries on earth.
We employ the best naturalist guides and Journeysmiths, all of whom live and work in Namibia; we offer the finest portfolio of lodges, hotels and camps (including our own); and we run a state-of-the-art fleet of specialized safari vehicles. This means we can guarantee an unequalled level of personal attention and we can maintain the highest standards when planning and organizing Namibian safaris. From initial enquiries to the final touches, our tribe is committed to bringing together all the elements that create the life enriching journeys we offer.
We consider ourselves to be at the cutting edge, and often well ahead of the game, when it comes to specialized safaris. We invest heavily in continuous exploration of new safari possibilities, and this makes us one of the most progressive and forward looking safari companies in the country.
Ultimate Safaris has also been involved in the development of responsible and sustainable tourism in a wider forum, and our principals have held a variety of executive decision-making positions concerning tourism on a National level.
Our camps are conservation impact investments, pioneering environmental sustainability, community development and conservation. Our philosophy is that the investment into our camps should be moderate from both a financial and environmental perspective, ensuring sustainability on all levels without the pressure of having to recoup large financial investments. This keeps the focus on re-investing revenue into conservation and the provision of Life Enriching Journeys through offering stays as part of truly unique experiences.
