Day 3 – 4 CAPRIVI
Crossing out of Zambia into the Caprivi strip, a narrow section of Namibian land that extends between Angola, Zambia and Botswana. We spend two days on game drives and traveling west through this game rich area. [chalets BLD]

After a morning enjoying the abundant birdlife that surrounds the camp, our road takes us along the Kavango River. Villages of grass huts and local wooden crafts and carvings a common sight. We stop for the night at our riverside lodge in Rundu with a spectacular sunset. [chalet BLD]

We head deeper into Namibia to the Etosha National Park. The National Park surrounds the Etosha Pan, and is locally named “the great white place of dry water”. Waterholes surround the pan and attract game, Etosha is known for great sightings of elephant, antelope and lions. Our lodge lies on the boundary of the park and we spend our mornings and afternoons on game drives. [lodge BLD]

Our journey covers some beautiful desert landscapes as we move south towards the Brandberg Mountain. Our lodge is situated in the dry Ugab River which is home to the rare desert elephants. We visit the petrified forest, and take a walk with a local guide to view the famous White Lady rock painting in the area. [lodge BLD]

Day 10 – 11 SWAKOPMUND
We cross flat open plains past the Spitzkoppe to the coast where we visit the Cape Cross seal colony. Further south is the coastal town of Swakopmund where we have a day free to explore the town or try sea kayaking or dune boarding (own expense). German colonial influences are strong in the town of Swakopmund as reflected in the restaurant menus and the architecture. [chalet Bx2 Lx1 -]

Day 12 – 13 NAMIB DESERT
The lunar landscapes surround the town of Swakopmund and we visit these as we leave and head into the Namib Desert with its towering red sand dunes. We take a full day to explore the Namib Naukluft Park and will walk to Sossusvlei, explore Sesriem Canyon and watch a dramatic sunset over the world’s highest sand dunes. [permanent tent BLD]

Windhoek is the capital and largest city in Namibia, its charm lies in its harmonious blend of African and European cultures and the friendliness of its people and an interesting mix of modern and German colonial era influenced architecture. We explore the city and enjoy a restaurant meal (own expense). [guesthouse BL-]

Crossing into Botswana we overnight in the heart of the Kalahari. We take a walk with the local San Bushmen to learn fascinating bush skills and get an insight into how these incredible people survive in this desert environment. [chalet BLD]

Day 16, 17, 18 OKAVANGO DELTA
An annual flood of fresh water spreads into the Kalahari Desert creating the reed lined channels of the Okavango Delta. Our first night is spent in Maun in preparation before journeying deep into the Delta on Makoro (dugouts) - an experience not to be missed. We have 2 nights in our tented camp wild on remote islands and enjoy game walks, swimming and the birdlife in this pristine wilderness area. [chalet x1, tented bush camp x2 Bx3 Lx3 Dx2]

Feel the vastness of Africa under a big sky sunset. After the rains the pans fill with water and attract thousands of water birds and herds of zebra, wildebeest and springbok. [permanent tents BL -]

We turn north through the Chobe Forest Reserve to Kasane where we settle into our lodge. Chobe NP is famous for large herds of elephant and buffalo. Our afternoon is spent on an exciting wildlife boat cruise in the Chobe NP. [chalets BL -]
