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


Namibia and Botswana Accommodated

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 Kamanjab via (Himba Village)

Heading inland, we drive north towards Kamanjab where we meet with the local people from this area. The Himba are a pastoral people and predominantly breed cattle or goats. Encountering a totally different way of life can be a moving experience for many people.

Namibia and Botswana Accommodated

Day 3, 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.

Day 4, 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.

Namibia and Botswana Accommodated

Day 5, 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.

Day 6, Windhoek to Ghanzi

We cross into Botswana and enter the Kalahari region. The sand masses of the Kalahari were created by the erosion of soft stone formations. The wind shaped the sand ridges, which are so typical of the landscape of this area. We take a walk with the local Bushmen to learn fascinating bush skills.

Day 7, Ghanzi to Maun

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

Day 8, Maun to Okavango Delta

This morning we head to the airport, jump into our planes and head into the Delta where we are based for the next 2 days.

Namibia and Botswana Accommodated

Day 9, 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 10, Okavango Delta to Gweta via (Maun)

We are transferred out of the Delta to meet back up with our truck before a short drive takes us to our interesting overnight stop on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.

Namibia and Botswana Accommodated

Day 11, 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.

Day 12, 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.

Namibia and Botswana Accommodated

Day 13 to 14, Victoria Falls

The last two days 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. Your tour officially finishes after breakfast on day 13, but there is the option to book extra nights. 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.
