A day-by-day breakdown of what to expect and where you'll be staying.
Day 1, Livingstone
With a day full of adventure, be sure not to miss the Bungee from Victoria Falls bridge, World class White Water rafting or abseil down Batoka Gorge. For the less adventurous there is horse back safaris, elephant back safaris, and the ever popular 'Flight of the Angels'.
Day 2, Livingstone to Chobe National Park
We cross the border into Botswana and head to Kasane where we set up camp on the banks of the Chobe River. The Chobe River forms a border between Botswana and Namibia and Zambia. Listen out for the resident hippos!
Day 3, 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 have the option to jump on a 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 4, Chobe National Park to Maun via (Nata)
Today, after an early morning start, we travel to Maun - the base camp for the Okavango Delta region. We pass by the stark and endless-looking Makgadikgadi Pans so keep an eye out for Elephant and Giraffe as well as birdlife.
Day 5, Okavango Delta
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 6, 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 7, Maun to Ghanzi
On our way to the Namibian border we stop in Ghanzi for an interesting cultural experience. Here we have the option of taking a guided walk - learning how the Bushmen track, hunt and survive in the African bush.
Day 8, Ghanzi to Windhoek
We cross over into Namibia and visit the capital city of Windhoek. Explore this old German colonial city's museums and history or visit one of the many pubs for real German beer in Africa!
Day 9, Windhoek to Etosha National Park
We leave the capital city of Windhoek and head north to Namibia's premier nature reserve, Etosha National Park. With a wide variety of animal and bird life, the reserve is situated around the famous Etosha Pan with an extensive network of gravel roads allowing us the opportunity of accessing even the most remote areas of the park.
Day 10, Etosha National Park
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 11, Etosha National Park to Spitzkoppe
From Etosha we travel into Damaraland, an area of eerie landscapes and barren rocky outcrops, and camp in the tranquil area of Spitzkoppe, known as the Matterhorn of Africa. We have the opportunity to see ancient bushman paintings here.
Day 12, Spitzkoppe to Swakopmund
Today we head for Swakopmund, an old German colony founded in 1892. Rest in the excellent coffee shops, restaurants & bars, browse the craft shops selling Namibian curios or check out the museum, aquarium or art galleries. Otherwise take a quiet walk along the beach and get ready for some adrenaline pumping activities!
Day 13, 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 14, Swakopmund to Sesriem
Today we head south, past Walvis Bay enroute to Sesriem. Close by and surrounded by a sea of sand dunes, is Sossusvlei. The top of the dunes, some over 300m high, offers fantastic views of the desert. We spend the afternoon exploring and can enjoy the glorious sunset from the top of a big dune should the weather permit.
Day 15, 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 16, Sesriem to Fish River Canyon
After a stunning sunrise we leave the Namib - Naukluft Park area and head south to the Fish River Canyon. The second largest canyon in the world was forming by a mixture of both tectonic activity and water erosion. A road follows the canyon rim allowing us access to several viewing points from where we can take in the spectacular view.
Day 17, Fish River Canyon to Orange River - South Africa
Further south we cross over the Orange River, the natural land border of Namibia, and enter South Africa. Our gorgeous campsite rests on the bank of the river. An option this afternoon is to take a canoe trip on the peaceful Orange River and check out the bird life.
Day 18, Orange River - South Africa to Cedarberg
An early morning start sees us travelling south through Namaqualand - well known for its glorious Namaqua wildflowers flooding the fields with colour for miles and miles each spring. We stop for the night in 'Wine Country' and our lovely campsite is surrounded by local wine farms. The stunning scenery ranges from the towering Cederberg Mountains to the flat fields of maize on the plain.
Day 19, Cedarberg to Cape Town
After passing through the fruit growing area of Citrusdal we cross the Picketberg Pass and head into the Cape's main wine growing regions. On a clear day we will see Table Mountain from afar - assuming the 'Table Cloth' doesn't hamper our efforts - arriving in the 'Mother City' in the afternoon.

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!
