Southern Africa Highlights

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.

Southern Africa Highlights

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

An optional canoe trip on the calm Orange River is available here before we travel further into Namibia. Our campsite is Hobas, which is only a short drive away from the Fish River Canyon.

Southern Africa Highlights

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)

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!!

Southern Africa Highlights

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.

Southern Africa Highlights

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.

Southern Africa Highlights

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.

Southern Africa Highlights

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.

Southern Africa Highlights

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

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.

Southern Africa Highlights

Day 17, Okavango Delta to Makgadikgadi Pans

From the lushness of the Delta we travel east to the vastness of the Makgadikgadi Pans.
