Ultimate Safaris launches Onduli Spa

Ultimate Safaris, recipient of the 2023 PURE Award for Creativity for their Onduli Ridge luxury camp, is set to unveil the all-new Onduli Spa on 1 May, catering to guests of both Onduli Ridge and the Onduli Enclave private villa.
The PURE Awards, established in 2014, celebrate trailblazers in the travel industry who push boundaries, champion creativity, and prioritise community empowerment and environmental conservation.
These accolades culminate annually at the PURE Life Experiences travel show in Marrakech, Morocco, where global tourism leaders convene to forge connections, share insights, and explore innovative business practices that benefit travellers and local communities alike.
Though the 2023 event was cancelled to focus on earthquake recovery efforts, Ultimate Safaris' pride in winning the Creativity Award was undiminished. The company had been shortlisted for the Mindful Design, Transformative Travel, and Conservation & Sustainability Awards.
Tristan Cowley, co-founder and managing director of Ultimate Safaris, expressed gratitude at the recognition, emphasising the global significance of being honoured alongside the world's best. He credited the dedicated team at Ultimate Safaris for captivating guests and elevating Namibia as a premier destination.
Onduli Ridge, named after its resident giraffe, stood out for its innovative design, sustainability practices, and commitment to conservation.
Situated in Namibia's Damaraland, the camp seamlessly integrates with the surrounding granite outcrops, operates on 100% solar power, recycles water, manages solid waste efficiently, and contributes substantial royalties to the local community and conservation efforts.
The forthcoming spa will offer ethically sourced, African-made, and cruelty-free products to guests of Onduli Ridge and the adjacent Onduli Enclave villa. Aligning with Ultimate Safaris' minimal impact ethos, these products are 100% biodegradable. State-of-the-art facilities will provide panoramic views of the stunning Damaraland landscape, with Namibia's tallest mountain, the Brandberg, to the south and granite inselbergs to the north.
