Day 1 – 3
Before leaving Livingstone we visit the Victoria Falls themselves – depending on season gaze into the 100-metre deep Batoka gorge, or admire the spray as it plumes up from the awesome power of the river as it flows into the narrow canyon below. From Livingstone, we go to Botswana and the Chobe National Park for an early morning game drive in search of elephant, buffalo, lion and a variety of birdlife. We relax during the heat of the day before an afternoon game viewing cruise on the Chobe River to watch hippos wallow, kingfishers feed, and the African sun slip below the horizon.
Day 4 – 6
Further south in the Okavango Delta, a natural wetland where the Okavango River fans out onto the plains to form the largest inland delta of its type in the world. Explore the myriad waterways and wetlands on foot and by dugout canoe (mokoro), catching glimpses of hippo, crocodile, buffalo and elephant. Our tented camp is on a river island where you can enjoy the peace amongst the swamps, lily pads and swaying grasses of the Okavango Delta.
Day 7 – 11
We depart Botswana and join the Bushmen for a guided walk on our first night in Namibia. It's then the off to the capital, Windhoek. We make our way to Etosha National Park. This vast reserve of over 20,000 sq km surrounds a central salt pan. We spend two days in the area mixing vehicle-based game-drives with static viewings. From Etosha, we turn south to Damaraland, an area of eerie landscapes and barren rocky outcrops, to Spitzkoppe (sometimes known as the ‘Matterhorn of Africa’) where there is the opportunity to see some Bushman paintings.
Day 12 – 15
We reach the Atlantic coast and sandwiched between the ocean and desert is Namibia’s premier coastal getaway, Swakopmund. Relax and enjoy the local cafe culture or try some adrenaline-pumping optional activities such as quad-biking, sand-boarding and skydiving! We continue south and reach the world’s oldest desert at Sossusvlei. Rising early we enter the Namib Naukluft Park and (energy permitting) climb one of the massive sand dunes to watch the shifting colours over the vast sand sea.
Day 16 – 19
Further south we visit another natural wonder of Africa – the Fish River Canyon, second-largest in the world. We spend the night at a camp on the banks of the Gariep (Orange) River before crossing the border to South Africa and to cosmopolitan Cape Town before our South West Safari ends.
