Safaris & Excursions with
Ombahe Tours Services
All our safaris and excursions are conducted by formally trained, experienced driver-guides who speak English, Otjiherero, and Afrikaans fluently. They are very well familiar with the living conditions, the ethnic communities and the natural environment in Namibia's Kunene Region; in fact, most of them grew up and still are at home in the Kaokoveld or Damaraland areas.
Our guides hold valid Public Driver Licences and First Aid Certificates, as required by law in Namibia. They are also used to travelling and interacting with foreign visitors to Namibia from different parts of the world.
Due to travelling in remote areas with little infrastructure, if any at all, throughout most of our excursions and safaris, Ombahe Tours makes use of 4x4 vehicles exclusively.
Mostly in operation are 4-wheel-drive double cabs with 3 passenger seats and Toyota Land Cruisers for up to 5 passengers. Other types of vehicles suitable for off-road driving may be utilised, subject to availability and the number of participants in any given tour.
All vehicles carry the licences and permits prescribed in Namibia for transporting paying passengers as well as comprehensive passenger liability insurance cover.
Our vehicles are available for hire including drivers for transfers to/from any destination in Namibia. This also covers pick-ups/drop-offs at airstrips and lodges in the Kunene Region.
All costs of the driver-guide & vehicle; guide & transportation services; picnic lunch; soft drinks on the vehicle; sightseeing & activities; community & conservation levies; passenger liability cover - according to the excursion programme quoted.
