Day 1 – 3
We begin with a cultural tour of Cape Town’s townships and enjoy a traditional lunch before travelling north through the citrus area of the Western Cape to semi-desert of Namaqualand and our camp on the banks of the Gariep (Orange) River in Namibia. Next up is one of the natural wonders of Africa - the Fish River Canyon. In some places 500m deep and over 160km long, this almost rivals the Grand Canyon for its breath-taking views.
Day 4 – 7
Continuing north, we arrive at the Namib Naukluft Park. The Namib is the world’s oldest desert and home to the world’s highest sand dunes (up to 300m high). We visit Sossusvlei and (energy permitting) climb to the top for a panoramic view of the sunrise over the vast sea of sand. We continue to the town of Swakopmund, a coastal resort town sandwiched between the desert and the ocean. Relax in one of the town’s many cafes or enjoy one of the thrilling adventure sports on offer, from deep-sea fishing to skydiving and sand-boarding.
Day 8 – 12
This morning we depart from Swakopmund and travel into Damaraland to the eerie and spectacular Spitzkoppe. We continue to Etosha National Park, a reserve of over 20,000 sq. km surrounding a central salt pan, which features 114 mammal and 340 bird species. We take morning and afternoon game drives and camp for two nights near floodlit waterholes for some exciting night viewing. We continue to Windhoek, Namibia’s pleasant capital city before heading to Botswana.
Day 13 – 15
We skirt the northern reaches of the Kalahari Desert and join local Bushmen for a desert walk before continuing to Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. The Okavango is a natural wetland, an elaborate world of giant lily pads, labyrinthine channels and swaying grasses. We venture out into the Okavango itself to explore the oxbow lakes and floodplains on foot and by dugout canoe (mokoro). We spend a night in a tented camp on a grassy island in the midst of this watery world for an unforgettable wilderness experience!
Day 16 – 19
We turn towards the northern corner of Botswana, passing Nata to Kasane. Chobe National Park is home to some of the largest elephant populations anywhere in Africa as well as lion and abundant birdlife. We take an afternoon Fish Eagle Cruise and early morning game drive in search of elephant, hippo and numerous antelope that dot the water's edge. From Chobe, we cross into Zambia and drive to our relaxing riverside camp in Livingstone. Why not try one of the many optional activities around Victoria Falls, including white water rafting, canoeing, bungy jumping, horse riding or a scenic flight over the Falls to name but a few. We also visit the ‘Falls’ themselves.
