We offer the Iridium service which is reliable and very easy to use, if you are able to see the sky, you should be able to make a call from just about anywhere in the world!

With our very low call and rental rates , we provide you with a small Iridium satellite phone, using the latest communication technologies. Our Iridium Motorola 9505 phones cover Africa and the world. Our phones can be life savers!

There is a mandatory daily TDP (Theft, Damage and Loss Protection) fee which carries an excess for lost, damaged or stolen handsets.

Please note: Satellite phones rely on direct line-of-sight to a satellite. Hence they can only be used outdoors or if the antenna is placed at the open window pointing skywards. Weather conditions will have no effect unless extreme. We strongly suggest making a test call before entering any remote area to ensure you are familiar and satisfied with operation of the phone.

A monthly rate is available. Rates are subject to change and may vary from time to time.
