Safari holiday from Cape Town through Namibia and Botswana to Victoria Falls
A classic Southern African overland journey which starts in Rainbow Nation of South Africa and finishes at the ‘Smoke that thunders', Victoria Falls. Arriving into the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town, the familiar skyline of Table Mountain frames this beautiful city. Travelling in a custom built overland vehicle, we drive to Cape Town's Hout Bay, famed for it's beauty and crayfish industry. Heading northwards, up the Atlantic Coast, we enter the raw and rugged terrain of the Cederberg Mountains before arriving at the dramatic land of contrasts, Namibia. From the sharp-ridged dunes of the Namib Desert to the spectacular wildlife, including the black rhino and elephants of Etosha National Park and from the seaside town of Swakopmund to the charms of Windhoek, Namibia provides one of the grandest and diverse of African experiences.
Whilst Namibia may sound like a hard act to follow, Botswana can satisfy even the most experienced safari enthusiast. Exploring the waterways of the Okavango Delta by a traditional mokoro canoe, allows us to get up close to the hippos and birdlife of this iconic waterland. A true land of wilderness, Botswana's Chobe National Park provides the last stage for our final safari experience. Rich grasslands sustain a high concentration of wildlife as we seek out the hunter and hunted on land and by boat. Finishing in Zimbabwe at the thunderous Victoria Falls we complete this astounding African adventure.
We also offer the first section of this itinerary only (from Cape Town to Windhoek, 14 days) which is called Highlights of Namibia.
