Ultimate Safaris

Ultimate Safaris

Created in 2008, Ultimate Safaris is the result of a merger between two of Namibia’s most successful private safari companies, SandyAcre Safaris (founded by Martin Webb-Bowen in 1994) and Tou Safaris (founded by Tristan Cowley in 2003). Specializing in hand-crafted and well-orchestrated private guided and intimate group naturalist guided safaris, Ultimate Safaris boasts one of the most experienced, creative and respected ‘tribes’ in the Namibian safari industry. Considered to be amongst the leading authorities on travel to Namibia, often pioneering ways in which to experience the country, we ensure exceptional leadership and a real connection to the places we go. Our driving force is a carefully selected group of experts who are passionate about Namibia and guest services, and who are well-known for removing the complexities associated with arranging safaris in Namibia. As a result, we ensure that our partners are best placed to offer truly memorable safaris to their guests in one of the most awe-inspiring countries on earth. We offer the finest portfolio of camps (including our own fully serviced mobile camps), lodges, and hotels, while employing the best naturalist guides and safari specialists, all of whom live and work in Namibia, and running a state-of-the-art fleet of specialized safari vehicles. This means we can guarantee an unequalled level of personal attention and maintain the highest standards when planning and organizing Namibian safaris. From initial enquiries and beyond, our tribe is committed to bringing together all the aspects that create truly life enriching safaris. 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 safari companies in the country. Ultimate Safaris is also constantly involved in the development of responsible and sustainable tourism holding a variety of executive decision-making positions on a National level.


Ultimate Safaris is a truly Namibian owner-managed ecotourism safari company, dedicated to the protection, conservation and sustainability of the areas in which we operate as these are some of the most pristine and delicate wilderness areas on earth.
