So wie die Gondwana Collection vor einigen Jahren, ist nun auch Ultimate Safaris in den sehr lukrative Mietwagenmarkt eingestiegen. Es gibt keine Camperfahrzeuge.
A STRESS-FREE RIDE IN SELF-DRIVE VEHICLES FROM ULTIMATE SAFARIS

Ultimate Safaris, the award-winning, leading safari operator in Namibia, is taking the trouble out of travel in the wilderness with the launch of its self-drive safari vehicles. Boasting one of the most experienced, creative, and respected teams of experts in the industry, Ultimate Safaris has taken the ultimate step of offering no-fuss freedom to its guests by answering the calls for uncomplicated and user-friendly vehicle rental. With a focus on redefining luxury safari travel, Ultimate Safaris decided that it made good sense to control this important start-to-finish driving aspect of any trip, in the least complicated way and without unnecessary extra cost.
Since its founding in 2008 Ultimate Safaris has pioneered new ways to experience the awe-inspiring natural world of Namibia through extensive conservation initiatives, seamless personal service, exceptional leadership, and an unwavering commitment to local communities and conservation. Now it has revved up its reputation for personal attention to ensure guests no longer face queues for rental vehicles at the airport or have to deal with the varied extra charge options when using different vehicle hire companies.
Everything a guest needs for a seamless self-drive experience will be included from the start, so quotes will be less complicated and there will also be no future rushed handovers of vehicles that have been booked or third-party credit card holders involved, creating a seamless transaction process.
“The aim is to create exclusive experiences for adventurous and discerning travellers, through insider knowledge and a team that can deliver memorable and authentic moments in the wilderness. Our goal is to provide safaris that combine educational, explorative, fun, and insightful elements that are life enriching. They benefit both local people and places as well as guests while celebrating the uniqueness of Namibia.” Comments Tristan Cowley, Managing Director of Ultimate Safaris.

Here are some of the key features of the newly acquired self-drive rental vehicle fleet:

• All vehicles are automatic transmission and are equipped for standard self-drive safaris, but not for camping safaris.
• Ultimate Safaris will only run 2.4 Toyota Hilux Double Cab 4x4 (ideal for 2 – 4 passengers) and 2.4 Toyota Fortuner 4x4 vehicles (ideal for 2 – 3 passengers). These vehicles have the best track record for self-drive safaris in Namibia and are ideally suited to the local landscape and conditions.
• There will be one single daily rate regardless of the vehicle type and duration of rental – but high and low season rates will apply.
• All rental rates are inclusive of zero excess insurance which covers tyre and windscreen damage, but this does not cover undercarriage or wind sandblasting damage which is specifically excluded. An additional driver fee and additional spare wheels are included at no extra cost.
• Rental vehicles will be delivered and handed over at Windhoek accommodation establishments to ensure a stress-free experience, and this will normally be combined with a detailed safari briefing. Vehicles will be collected from the venue of the last night’s stay, but they can also be returned to the airport at no extra charge if necessary.
• One-way delivery fees to other areas within Namibia as well as other extras such as child booster seats and GPS are provided if required.

To make the self-drive option even more appealing, the following extras have also been included and set Ultimate Safaris apart.

• All vehicles are fitted with an electric Engel fridge which is connected to the ignition.
• All vehicle seats are fitted with comfortable Melville & Moon seat covers which are easily washable.
• Additional, second, spare wheels are fitted in a way that ensures maximum space for packing.
• All vehicles have free in-vehicle WiFi which functions in all areas where there is 3G+ cellular coverage. This is already widely available in many parts of mainstream Namibia, and the network is growing rapidly.
• Emergency medical evacuation insurance is included in all rentals, and this will cover the costs of suitable transportation to a private hospital should that become necessary.

Moin Christian,
klingt ja schon mal interesssant. Auf deren Seite (ultimatesafaris.na) finde ich die Mietwagen allerdings nicht. Gibt's dafür eine andere Seite?
Gruß,
Dieter

Die Fahrzeuge stehen scheinbar nur für Ultimate Safaris Self-Drives zur Verfügung. Nicht für andere Reisende. Das wird nur nicht so klar kommuniziert.

Viele Grüße
Christian
