A day-by-day breakdown of what to expect and where you'll be staying.
Day 1, Cape Town
Enjoy the 'Mother City' at leisure today. With so much to see and do it would be worth getting out early and making the most of it!
Day 2, 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 3, 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 4, Orange River - Namibia to Fish River Canyon

Day 5, 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 6, Sesriem to Sesriem via (Sossusvlei)
The parched Namib Desert has endless orange dunes blown into sharp ridges by the sand-shifting wind and at Sossusvlei they from a gateway into the Namib Desert. We will walk to Sossusvlei, explore Sesriem Canyon and from the comfort of our lodge outside the national park watch dramatic sunsets over the world's highest sand dunes
Day 7, 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 8, 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 9, 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 10, Brandberg to Twyfelfontein
We stay in the Damaraland area and travel on to Twyfelfontein where we explore more of this desert landscape.
Day 11, Twyfelfontein to Etosha National Park
Further north we visit the Etosha National park.
Once a vast lake fed by the Kunene River, the Etosha pan dried up thousands of years ago. We take game drives around the huge pan to find the Elephants, herds of antelope and Lions around the waterholes.
Day 12, 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 13, 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 14, 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 15, Ghanzi to Maun
From Ghanzi we head to Maun which is the gateway to the Okavango Delta.
Day 16, Maun to Okavango Delta

An afternoon game walk will allow you to experience the Delta wilderness in all its glory.

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!
