Comments: Hi Natascha, hi Rudi!
After our return to good cold Germany we would like to thank you for the great service we found at your Car Hire Station and at your guest house.
Our Landrover Defender was reliable in all situations crossing Namibia, Botsuana and even crossing Chobe N.P. via Savuti. Especially I like to mention the great Engel-fridge (which did heavy duty work) and the tyres in best condition to travel extremely sandy tracks.
Even for the moment, our AC was not working properly, we got immediate help/repair from Rudi and Johannes.
I would like to thank all your staff for the great service we got.

Comments: Hi Natasha und Rudi,
Gundi und ich möchten uns bedanken für die professionelle Vermietung des Toyota Hilux als Basis für unseren schönen Namibia Aufenthalt. Durch die tolle Qualität der Autos haben wir keinerlei Probleme und keine Reifenpannen wie andere gehabt. Eure lange und intensive Sicherheitseinführung hat wirklich geholfen, dass wir nicht die Erfahrungen selbst erst machen mussten (im Sand stecken bleiben, auf Gravel Roads zu schnell in die Kurven - wir haben Unfälle anderer gesehen!, etc.)
Auch der Transferservice zum Flughafen und die weitergehende Beratung waren Spitze. Somit haben wir noch andere Tipps von Euch erhalten.
Zudem hat die Möglichkeit, Euer Guesthouse zu buchen, uns den spontan seitens Air Namibia verlegten Rückflug komfortabel und erträglich gemacht. Es war super praktisch und wir konnten somit ohne Gepäck einfach noch nach Windhoek in die Stadt (gerade mal 5 Min. bzw. 50 N$ = 5 €) mit Eurem Taxifahrer.
Also, wir kommen wieder wie Rudi prophezeite - diesmal vermutlich mit Camping auf dem Dach des Hilux und dann sind wir sicher wieder Eure Gäste. Wenn jemande Bedarf hat für Rückfragen, darf er gerne auf uns zukommen.
Grüße Gundi und Thorsten aus Bonn, Deutschland
Euch noch viel Erfolg beim Rental von 4x4

Thank you to you and your team at Okavango for all your help with the Toyota and camping equipment hire.
We really appreciated your attention to detail and personalised service including road advice.
The Toyota was ideally suited to us and fully set up for our purposes and details like extra large fuel tanks and aux docking points for the kids I-pods made it even better.
We are very pleased we chose your firm and would definitely use you again if we're lucky enough to come back to Namibia.

Comments: Dear Natascha,
This is just a message to thank you for your excellent services. Our trip went fine and the accommodation at your guest house was great. Also, I wanted to thank you for guarding/handing over the documents which I originally left behind at your place. Without them it would have been very difficult for us to recover our car at Munich airport….
Everyone we know is eager to hear our experience from the trip and we too are already thinking about coming back. So most probably you will hear from us again soon.

Comments: This is to say thank you and well done to all at Okavango Car hire. We were extremely pleased with the services provided, from the airport transfer into Windhoek, the rental car and the car rental rental procedure and instructional demonstration, the camping equipment and extras added into the vehicle for our trip, as well as the tips and friendly advice for our trip from Windhoek through Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The tyres proved on the vehicle were the BEST, and better than every other rental car company we saw. We drove over 6000kms and had only one tyre flat, over some extremely bad terrain.
The Toyota we hired was very new with low kms, we had no engine problems, the vehicle was a pleasure to drive, and was extremely economical. Our stay at the Okavango Guest house when we arrived back was also very nice, with very good facilities available.
We will definitely recommend Okavango Car hire to everyone visiting Namibia, thanks again!

Comments: Dear Kobus/Rudi,
I recently completed a 3300 km trip around Namibia in one of your vehicles. The Landrover Defender supplied was in very good condition and other than a loose battery lead completed the trip with no breakdowns or punctures. The service and backup were top notch and I felt completely comfortable with the vehicle regardless of road conditions or the distances involved. I would have no trouble in recommending your company to those who appreciate good vehicles and good service.
Thank you - Tony, London
Comments: Just this small notice to tell you I was happy with the car,during 3 weeks I have been to many differents places in Namibia, some with smalls and really no goods roads and this Toyota 4x4 was always going very well, I never get any problems, even no flat tyre.
I recommend this company, car was very new and excellent condition.

Comments: Hello Rudi, Natascha and Nicole! Thanks a lot. Your service was just perfect: very kind and helpful staff, a superb car (we didn't see a better one during our 3,5 week trip through southern and middle Namibia) and a comfortable Bed and Breakfast at the end of our trip. If we do another trip to Namibia, we surely will come back to you. Have a successful year 2009 and drive carefully! Best regards, Hermann Nordsieck

Comments: Hi Natascha Thank you for all your help in arranging our recent rental and thanks to Kobus for the way he managed our arrival/departure and the rental - fantastic! As promised - please feel free to post the following on your web-site -
"My wife and I recently rented a Toyota Hilux 4x4 diesel from you for a 22 day period. I would like to commend Okavango Car Hire for the quality of service and the vehicle provided. You were gracious enough to meet us at the airport upon arrival and return us there when we departed. Your service was well above average. The vehicle provided was in outstanding condition. The number of kilometres was low and the tires were of premium quality - in fact, during our entire trip we did not see another rental vehicle with Bridgestone's Mud Terrain tires. The sense of security provided by a well maintained truck with high-end tires made our holiday that much more enjoyable. Our sincere thanks - and best of luck with your future initiatives.

Comments: Dear Rudi and Natascha, Back in Schaffhausen we look back at a great holiday adventure in Namibia and Botswana. We would like to thank you and compliment you and the Okavango team on the way you take vehicle renting seriously. We recognized the importance of having a reliable and well equipped vehicle, as in countries as Namibia and Botswana you are greatly dependent on your vehicle under the harsh conditions you can encounter. It is always a kind of guess when you make bookings via the internet and do not know who is on the other side. At the same time you hear from many people having bad experiences now then. We rented before for holidays in the region but always in South Africa. Although we wanted to rent a Land Rover again at first, we were not able to do so, because there were none available anymore in Windhoek. You advised us to take the (more comfortable) Toyota HILUX double cab instead and promised us that we would be pleasantly surprised. Indeed we were, the Toyota drives just as good or even better than a Land Rover. Moreover, because the superb Goodrich tyres you have on your vehicles ? we never saw anyone else with tyres with profile that came even close ? we never had a flat tyre and even barely had to use the low gear, let alone the diff-lock. Your years of experience in the renting business really pays out and is reflected in the professional way you have equipped your vehicles and your service minded attitude. Thanks again and feel free to use our experience as a reference for others (to contact). We will certainly be back soon. Vincent Menting and Pernille Kal Schaffhausen, Switzerland
