The quality of our vehicles and equipment is something we take very seriously and, along with employing some of the best guides in the country, we are known for the quality of the equipment we use. Terrain-appropriate vehicles that are safe, comfortable and reliable are of paramount importance and, along with our rigid policy for regular renewal of safari vehicles, this means guests are assured of travelling in the very best vehicles on offer in Namibia.
Several years of continuous innovation between Ultimate Safaris and our local custom vehicle manufacturer resulted in the creation of a Namibian safari vehicle that we believed was as close to perfect as possible. However, this has been refined even further during the last few years when we have been working with specialist manufacturer based outside the country who works to Standards Bureau specifications in a Toyota approved factory. We now have a product that represents the best elements of all designs while being guaranteed to be as safe and sound as possible.
These vehicles have been hand crafted to our specifications so that every guest has a comfortable seat with good back support, each with a large window for optimal game viewing which is improved further by ‘pop-top’ roofs that can be raised whenever particularly good sightings are experienced. Every guest also has access to a personal library which includes a series of guide books, maps and stationary as well as country specific mammal and bird checklists. The vehicles all have a 220 volt electrical charging point, allowing guests to charge electrical devices whilst traveling as well as electric fridge-freezers to ensure that that drinks and snacks are always chilled. They are also fitted with VHF inter-vehicle radios that allow multiple vehicle groups to communicate with each other while ‘on the road’, and these radios also enable us to communicate with local rangers in the eastern side of the Etosha National Park thus ensuring that those ‘special’ sightings are never missed when your guests are in the area. Added to all this, our guides travel with their renowned ‘MAGIC BOXES’, which ensure all en-route catering needs can be taken care of, from a bush breakfast or lunch, through regular coffee and tea stops, to majestic sundowners.

Our Safari Vehicles
Transfer vehicles are primarily used for to carry guests between Windhoek’s airports and hotels in the town. Most of these transfers will be conducted in comfortable, air-conditioned VW Transporters and saloon cars, but we also offer ‘enriched transfers’ in an Audi Q5 when this is requested for those guests who appreciate the addition of a touch of luxury. The Q5 transfers come at an additional cost, and these can also be booked to transport guests to and from venues that are out of town as well, such as Okonjima, Na an Kuse and Gocheganas.
