A day-by-day breakdown of what to expect and where you'll be staying.
Day 1, Cape Town to Cedarberg
This morning we make our way northward out of Cape Town, passing through the beautiful wine lands. We set camp tonight in the shadow of the Cederberg Mountains.
Day 2, Cedarberg to Orange River - Namibia
Today we journey to a region that is renown for its wildflower display in the Spring, Namaqualand. We make a quick pit stop in Springbok for supplies before journeying on to the Orange River. We cross the border into Namibia and tonight we sleep on the Orange Rivers edge.
Day 3, Orange River - Namibia to Fish River Canyon
An optional half day canoe trip on the calm Orange River is available here this morning. After enjoying lunch we head for Hobas, which is only a short drive from the glorious Fish River Canyon.
Day 4, Fish River Canyon to Sesriem
We enter the Namib Naukluft Park and the oldest desert in the world today as we drive towards the dune fields of Sesriem and Sossusvlei. The stark but stunning landscape is worthy of some brilliant photos!
Day 5, Sesriem to Sesriem via (Sossusvlei)
An early start as we enter into the park and head for Dune 45. Clamber to the top for a stunning high-point view over the dunes. We continue to Sossusvlei and from here you will have your own free time to explore the vlei or the surrounding area. Stunning photographic opportunities are available in the dunes so bring those cameras!!
Day 6, Sesriem to Swakopmund
A spectacular sunset awakens us this morning. We travel north towards Walvis Bay via some glorious desert passes, and make our way along the coast, before finally arriving in Namibia's prime adventure resort - Swakopmund.
Day 7, Swakopmund
A leisure day today to get the feel of this quaint German town sandwiched between the edge of a massive dune field and the ocean. Take on some adventure activities or relax in a cafe on the beachfront.
Day 8, Swakopmund to Brandberg
We travel up the coast to visit the Cape Cross Seal Colony before heading to Namibia's highest peak - Brandberg (burning mountain) where bushman rock paintings can be seen in the foothills.
Day 9, Brandberg to Cheetah Park
Leaving the picturesque Brandberg Mountains we aim for a worthy cause - a Cheetah Conservation Project. We will have the chance to interact with the World's fastest mammal! Get up close and personal with these quick cats!
Day 10, Cheetah Park to Etosha National Park
We make our way to Etosha National Park, stopping en-route only to refresh our supplies. The 22,000sq.km park is a haven for a large variety of bird and animal species and we will spend some time game driving through the southern part of it. At night you can sit at the floodlit water hole beside our camp site and see what comes to visit!
Day 11, Etosha National Park
Today we enjoy a full day of game driving, making our way east along the length of the park. After dinner make your way to another floodlit water hole to see what animals arrive at the water to drink, or relax at the campsite.

A full day of game drives and waterhole viewing as we try to catch a glimpse of some of the plains game and Big 5 that reside in Etosha National Park.
Day 13, Etosha National Park to Rundu
Departure this morning is early as we travel towards the Kavango area. En route to our campsite we may make a brief stop in Rundu for supplies. Our campsite is situated on the edge of the Kavango River overlooking Angola!

Today is a free day for you to spend at your leisure. The variety of optional activities range from game walks to swimming. Relax and take in the beauty of your surroundings.
Day 16, Okavango Delta
Early morning and late afternoon game walks give you time in the middle of the day to relax, chill out and enjoy your surroundings. Why don't you have a go at poling your own mokoro? It is not as easy as it looks!
Day 17, Okavango Delta to Maun
Today we return to Maun, however, you will have the chance for an early morning game walk before packing up camp. There is also the option of a scenic flight over the Delta in the afternoon - the best way to appreciate the expanse of waterways you have travelled through.
Day 18, Maun to Kasane
We make our way through Botswana with a fairly long and interesting drive, and set camp on the banks of the Chobe River in a little town called Kasane on the border of the Chobe National Park. We stop for lunch on the roadside and pass the stunning 'pan' environment on the way.
Day 19, Kasane to Kasane via (Chobe National Park)
There is the option of a early morning game drive should you wish to spot some game as they come out for a drink in the cool, crisp morning. After lunch we jump on our boat for a cruise along the Chobe River, to spot some more of the world's largest mammals and some of the smallest bird species.
Day 20, Kasane to Victoria Falls
After a hearty brunch we make our way into Zimbabwe and to Victoria Falls. Approx 1700 m wide and 100 m high, Victoria Falls is a memorable sight! Take part in one of the many adventure activities or relax by the pool.
Day 21, Victoria Falls
Spend today walking around this little town with its BIG waterfall, rest by the pool, write your postcards, shop or chill out at a little cafe. If that sounds too relaxing then finish off the adventure activities you haven't tried yet!

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
