This extensive Safari allows you to experience some of Southern Africa’s most spectacular and less easily accessible regions. A combination of fantastic lodges, tented camps and two nights ‘roughing it’ in a mobile camp on an island in the Delta makes this safari a must for individuals who wish to embrace nature’s best. From spending time in the field with the San people, to winding down the channels of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro, to the splendid wildlife of the Caprivi and Chobe National Park, to experiencing the might of Victoria Falls. This is for those with a sense of adventure!

Day 1-2: Windhoek, Central Namibia

The central Namibian highlands are much cooler and less harsh than the arid lowlands that make up the majority of the country. This is great cattle ranching country and most tourism facilities have their origins in cattle and more recently game ranching.

Overnight: Windhoek



Day 2-4: Sossusvlei, Namib

The Namib Desert is considered to be the oldest desert in the world, having been arid or semi-arid for more than 80 million years. It stretches for 1 600 km along the entire length of the Namibian coast line. The massive sea of sand that is the Namib Desert combines with coastal winds to create the tallest sand dunes in the world, with some reaching up to 300 meters in height at Sossusvlei. Aside from these dunes the Namib is also renowned for the plants and animals that somehow survive there and the ships that have been wrecked on this unforgiving shore.

Overnight: Sossusvlei



Day 4-6: Swakopmund, Swakopmund

Founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South West Africa, Swakopmund is often described as being more German than Germany. Now a seaside resort, Swakopmund is the capital of the Skeleton Coast tourism area and has plenty to keep visitors happy. The quirky mix of German and Namibian influences, colonial-era buildings and the cool sea breeze make it very popular.

Overnight: Swakopmund




Day 6-8: Damaraland, Damaraland

Huge, untamed and ruggedly beautiful Damaraland is an exceptionally scenic landscape of open plains and spectacular rock formations. The major attractions are Spitzkoppe, the Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, Vingerklip and the Petrified Forest.

Overnight: Damaraland



Day 8-10: Etosha National Park, Etosha

The Etosha National Park is Namibia's premiere game viewing experience, situated in the northwest of Namibia and is an area well known for its wildlife. Vegetation ranges from dense bush to open plains attracting a diversity of wildlife. In the heart of the Park is The Etosha Pan - a shallow depression that covers an area of 5000sq kilometres. Dry and shimmering for most of the year, the pans fill up with water after good rains to a depth which is seldom deeper than 1m. In the dry season wildlife is attracted to perennial springs and waterholes that makes for excellent game viewing.

Overnight: Etosha National Park



Day 10-13: Caprivi Strip, Caprivi

The Caprivi Strip is the name given to the little finger of Namibia that sticks eastwards between Angola and Botswana all the way across to Zimbabwe and creates the only spot on the planet where 4 countries meet. The Caprivi is also in the middle of one of Africa’s largest and most well know game viewing areas. The abundance of water supplied by the Zambezi, Okavango, Kwando and Chobe Rivers sustains a large variety of animal and bird species. There are four Namibian reserves and no fences preventing the animals from moving between the countries.

Overnight: Caprivi Strip



Day 13-15: Chobe National Park, Chobe National Park

The Chobe National Park has one of the greatest concentrations of game found on the African continent, the park is divided into four distinctly different eco systems; the lush plains and dense forests in the Chobe River, Linyanti Swamps, the Savuti Marsh and the largest part, the dry area to the south and in between. The park is best known for its elephant population but offers reliable and diverse game viewing.

Overnight: Chobe National Park

Elephants, elephants and more elephants, there are few places that can beat Chobe for elephant viewing, be from land or a boat.



Day 15-16: Victoria Falls National Park, Victoria Falls

One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is breath-taking and not surprisingly a World Heritage Site. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ this spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe. Unlike other waterfalls Victoria Falls has a natural catwalk across from the falls which provides for spectacular viewing.

Overnight: Victoria Falls National Park




Day 16-18: Makgadikgadi Pans Game Reserve, Makgadikgadi Pans

The Makgadikgadi Pan is the world’s largest salt pan, formed on the bed of an ancient lake that began evaporating aeons ago. Visiting Makgadikgadi is a unique desert experience: in the dry season, this vast expanse of sun-baked salt glistens in the light and when the rains come, the pan is home to a cornucopia of flamingos and other waterbirds, as well as one of Africa's biggest zebra populations, whose annual migration is a wonder to behold.

Overnight: Makgadikgadi Pans Game Reserve

This ancient lake turned salt pan still manages to sustain life and awe visitors.



Day 18-20: Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango

Lying in the middle of the largest expanse of sand on earth the Delta is one of Africa’s most amazing, sensitive, and complex environments supporting a spectacle of wilderness and wildlife. Unique as one of the world’s few inland deltas, the placid waters and lush indigenous forests of the Delta offer a safe haven for innumerable bird and wildlife species. The elusive Sitatunga antelope has found refuge in this pristine wetland ecosystem, while birds such as the African fish eagle, Pel's fishing owl and many others are magnificent in their spectacular display. The Okavango Delta offers a number of activities for the visitor where fishing and bird-watching are obvious attractions, but game viewing, especially for rare species, is also possible. One can also take to the waters of this magical world of islands and lagoons by canoe, mokoro or powerboat. Although a holiday here doesn't come cheap, it is an unforgettable experience.

Overnight: Moremi Game Reserve



Day 20-21: Windhoek, Central Namibia

The central Namibian highlands are much cooler and less harsh than the arid lowlands that make up the majority of the country. This is great cattle ranching country and most tourism facilities have their origins in cattle and more recently game ranching.

Overnight: Windhoek
