Due to popular demand, Ultimate Safaris have increased the number of departures for our Ultimate Namibia Safari from 10 to 15 for 2015 (see dates at bottom of post). The itinerary has remained exactly the same as 2014 and will continue to be a guaranteed departure (minimum 1 pax and maximum 8 pax). As always, we have done our utmost to keep the STO price increase to a minimum, having an increase of 6% for low season and 9% for high season on 2014 rates. The single supplement has gone up by 12% and this was done mainly for operational purposes as we only hold a limited number of rooms for each departure. The Recommend Selling Rates have also gone up by more, to allow you, our trade partner, a margin of 25% opposed to 20% as in the past. We trust that this will be even greater incentive to sell these already extremely popular safaris.

As per usual, we recommend a pre-night in Windhoek as well as the AfriCat (Okonjima) extension, and all airport transfers are to be booked additionally to the safari fare as before.

A full itinerary is available on the Kusini Collection website here. Contact Gillian at Ultimate Safaris for bookings, availability and should you have any questions or require additional details on the itinerary.
