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 - South Africa

We spend this morning at leisure before travelling to the farming area of Namibia. It is likely we will stop off for supplies in Bethanie before heading to tonights camp.

Cape Town to Victoria Falls

Day 5, Helmeringhausen to Sesriem

We now enter the Namib Naukluft Park which is a popular tourist destination here in Namibia and known as the oldest desert in the world. On top of the the Sossusvlei's dramatic sea of dunes are thought to be the highest in the world. The scenery changes dramatically from flat, brown plains with rocky hills to caramel coloured flowing sand dunes - stunning! You will be amazed at what lives here!

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.

Today we make our way to the ancient San bushman sacred site of Spitzkoppe. Explore the 1728m high formation and view the rock paintings before bush camping under the African stars.

Cape Town to Victoria Falls

Day 10, Spitzkoppe to Cheetah Park

A scenic drive today takes us to a private game farm called The Cheetah Park. Here you will learn about conservation efforts for these beautiful creatures and get the once in a lifetime opportunity to see them up close.

Day 11, 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 15, Maun to Okavango Delta

You have the opportunity to take a 3 day / 2 night excursion into the Delta. You travel in local transport and then in mokoros, the local dug out canoes, which are poled by local guides through the winding waterways. These local canoes are a perfect way to navigate this waterway wonder - the biggest inland Delta in the world. Your guides will select a place out in the bush to set up camp. An afternoon game walk will allow you to experience the Delta wilderness in all its glory.

Cape Town to Victoria Falls

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.

Cape Town to Victoria Falls

Day 18 to 19, Maun to Chobe National Park

We make our way towards northeastern Botswana with a fairly long and interesting drive. Here we will enjoy a sunset cruise on the Chobe River and afterwards enjoy a night under Botswana's star-filled skies on a Chobe National Park Sleepout.

 

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.

Cape Town to Victoria Falls

Day 21, Victoria Falls

The last day on safari gives you the opportunity to just relax and enjoy this spectacular natural wonder or you can join in the adrenalin rush that Victoria Falls is known for. Most activities are available throughout the year. On the ground the Falls can be seen from the Victoria Falls Park or from the Zambian side. Take a flight which will give you a panoramic view of the Falls, Batoka Gorge and the islands above the falls. Photographic opportunities abound. We suggest you allow yourself a few days after your safari if you wish to partake in some of the many activities.
