The very first Premium Overland Safari Vehicle in Africa
Africa4us proudly introduces the Ultimate Safari Seat to match our Premium Adventure Tours.
Take the business class in an aeroplane, rip the wings off, add wheels and there you have it, the most luxurious overland safari vehicle available in Africa! The team at Africa4us, who are actually more like a family passionate about everything to do with Africa, put all the research in and invested heavily in creating a premium seat setup, and are proud to introduce the Ultimate Safari Seat (USS) to our passengers.
Sinking into this seat for the first time, with all the legroom you could possibly need with its footrest, made it hard to believe that it was perched on a combination of a truck chassis and in a custom-built coach body! This combination is clearly aimed at offering maximum dependability as well as luxury and comfort at the perfect height from which to view the stunning landscape and wildlife that Africa has to offer.
With seating limited to 12 travellers on our Premium Adventure Tours, you will have your own window seat along with an adjacent personal space that acts as a small table top for your laptop or camera, as well as a cup rest. Inside this magical little box are 2 USB charge points as well as additional ports in the storage space above you, so that even while you are ‘roughing’ it you can remain in touch with ‘civilization’.
Not only are the new Ultimate Safari Seats (USS) sheer luxury for the many hours spent on the road, but, if you have chosen to camp out under the African Sky, you will be provided with a mattress made for comfort with a solid backing and memory foam on top to give you a great night’s sleep. Another ‘little’ luxury on board is a dedicated fridge for your drinks along the way to quench your thirst, along with an air conditioner to keep you cool on hot African days with the addition of curtains that will protect you from the sun if it gets too harsh!
From years of experience roughing it through many African Adventure Tours, the team at Africa4us know that the choice of vehicle is paramount to the success of every adventure. From that experience we knew that standard bus or coach vehicles were just not strong enough or dependable enough to carry all the extra weight and equipment that we have to carry along on our tours. Negotiating on challenging terrain and roads in the harsh African climate makes the choice of chassis very important as well, and after almost 17 on the road, we have built up an exceptional backup system throughout Africa with our manufacturer.
Safety is an essential element when it comes to our vehicles and their bodies, and not only have they all passed the stringent SABS “roll-over” and “break-over” tests, but they undergo extensive roadworthy tests every six months. Added to this, there is a thorough overhaul done on each vehicle every 10 000km’s with fully operational workshops in Cape Town and Nairobi run by dedicated teams.
Africa4us teamed up with registered engineering firms who took the design of the coach body so seriously that it exceeds industry standards to give you the best experience on your African Adventure Tour.
The ‘kitchen’ under the coach consists of a gas/propane stove and everything needed to set up breakfast, lunch and dinner while you seat yourself on comfy chairs around a table, with an awning that can be pulled out to provide protection from rain and sun. Also hidden under the coach are the spacious luggage compartments.
From the mechanic and stores manager to the director, the family at Africa4us are passionate about taking you on the adventure of your life through Africa in style and luxury!
