Our specialty Overland trucks are custom-built for rugged African terrain. They are designed by our staff that have years of experience on the road. Our vehicles are bought new and built to our specifications by professional body builders in Pretoria.
They all pass stringent SABS (South African Bureau of Standards) testing and have all the necessary certification to carry passengers. All vehicles are fitted with lap seat belts & fire extinguishers and we spare no expense to safeguard our travelers making our vehicles as safe as possible. The interiors are fitted with wood paneling giving our vehicles an original safari look & feel. We fully service our vehicles after every safari using qualified mechanics at our Cape Town workshop. A back up Overland vehicle is always on hand in the event of an emergency.
Our Kruger to Falls Adventure / Delta & Wildlife Adventure will BOTH be run in 16 seater Mercedes Sprinter vehicles. We will NOT use an Overland truck on these tours from January 2020.
We feel this vehicles will work really well as ALL roads on these itineraries are tar and ALL activities / game drives are done in open 4×4 vehicles from the lodges. We are using the vehicle to transfer clients from one lodge to the next.
For best possible sight seeing, 4×4 open-sided game-viewing vehicles are used on excursions into the Botswana National Parks (Moremi, Savute, Chobe). Each vehicle takes a maximum of 8 passengers with a trailer for luggage and equipment. All vehicles have a small fridge for drinks while game viewing and also battery charging facilities while in camp. All Botswana excursions are conducted by local professional Botswana registered Guides.
For additional peace of mind our qualified mechanic, Paul, commands a roaming vehicle that carries spare parts for our tour trucks. The vehicle is largely based in Namibia during high season and is quickly on hand to address any issues. Kiboko has a warehouse in Windhoek with a full set of spares and tyres ensuing in the event of a breakdown quick fixes.
As we all hang in there waiting for this virus to pass some updated info from Kiboko Adventures:
March & April 2020 departures:
ALL departures in March & April have now been CANCELLED. It has become extremely difficult for clients to fly in and out of countries so we took the decision in the best interests of everyone to cancel departures for these 2 months.
All tours who were on the road have been stopped and clients re patriated.
May & June 2020 departures:
May & June departures will be reviewed as the situation changes.
1 month before departure a decision will be made and communicated to you.
Amended Cancelation policy:
May & June departures – there will be NO cancellation fees applicable. Deposits to be refunded in full to clients.
July to Dec departures – the 20% deposit will be carried over to a new booking for travel in 2020 or 2021. Should a client not travel in this period this deposit will be lost.
NOTE: these terms will be reviewed as time goes on and we get closer to each departure month without changes in the travel ban situation.
I am here to answer any questions and hang in there everyone – we will all come out stronger on the other side!
