Simon Steadman is a registered Professional 4x4 Trails and Overland Tourist Guide and sat on the founding committee of OGATO (Overland Guides and Tour Operator’s Association in SA). He has been guiding off-road trails and tours since 2006 to some of Africa’s wildest destinations including 44-Day expeditions to the Serengeti.
One of his greatest assets as a tour guide is his ability to remain calm in the most trying of circumstances and to think clearly and logically while under pressure. Other good traits that go down well with his clients are his fine cooking skills, his warm and gentle nature, and the great hospitality he extends to all of his clients
Simon is co-author of the very successful “4x4 Routes of Southern Africa”
He is co-author of the very successful “4x4 Routes of Southern Africa” book published by Map Studio in 2011, contributing two chapters to the publication.
Simon is the co-owner of Ultimate Adventures, an adventure company that specialises in guided self-drive 4x4 tours to some of Southern Africa’s most remote and awe-inspiring destinations. All trips are fully catered and family-orientated, as Simon feels it is important for families to enjoy the bush together in a safe and well-controlled environment.
Ultimate Adventures also focuses on 4WD training (various) and niche 4WD equipment. Simon has been running a very successful Safari operation for the last 6 years.
Ultimate Adventures supports the responsible use of 4x4 vehicles in the wild and they ensure that all their tour groups are well informed about the impact their 4x4 vehicles can have on the environment when used incorrectly and irresponsibly. They strive to cause as little impact on the environment as possible in all areas visited.
Simon is also the host of two upcoming television series
The "Into the Deep" scuba diving series and "Into the Wild" off road & adrenaline sports reality show.
