A day-by-day breakdown of what to expect and where you'll be staying.


Desert and Delta

Day 1, 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 2, Swakopmund to Spitzkoppe

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.

Desert and Delta

Day 3, Spitzkoppe to Kamanjab

After a last look at Spitzkoppe we head off to Kamanjab and visit the Himba people living there. The Himba are a pastoral people and we spend some time learning about their way of life in modern times.

Day 4, Kamanjab to Etosha National Park

The jewel of Namibia's wildlife crown awaits - Etosha National Park. After a brief stop to check in we spend some time game driving through a small part of the park on our way to our camp.

Desert and Delta

Day 5, 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.

Day 6, Etosha National Park to Windhoek

We leave the wildlife to head to the capital city of Windhoek. You may wish to explore this city steeped in German atmosphere or choose to enjoy a flagon of ale at one of the local taverns.

Desert and Delta

Day 7, Windhoek to Ghanzi

From Windhoek we take the scenic route to Botswana. Crossing the Buitepos border we head to Ghanzi where we meet up with a local Bushman community.

Day 8, Ghanzi to Maun

From Ghanzi we head to Maun which is the gateway to the Okavango Delta.

Desert and Delta

Day 9, 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.

Day 10, 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!

Desert and Delta

Day 11, Maun to Gweta

Leaving Maun and the Delta behind us we travel east to Gweta and camp near the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.

Day 12, Gweta to Kasane

Our drive today takes us through and around the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans before we turn north towards the Chobe National Park. The afternoon can be spent on a scenic boat cruise on the Chobe River.

Desert and Delta

Day 13, 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 14, 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.
