Classic Southern Africa safari from Victoria Falls to Namibia, Botswana, Okavango and Chobe
We start our amazing Southern African adventure holiday at one of the world’s largest and most majestic of all waterfalls - Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River. From this thunderous beginning we travel west into the wilderness of Namibia's Caprivi Strip, cutting through Angola and Botswana, famous for its migrating elephants and habitat for the Wild African Dog. Our next stop is the vast, wildlife rich pans of Etosha National Park. Here the waterholes bustle with African big game we are sure to get our first glimpse of big cats, dusty elephants and plain game such as antelope and giraffe. Moving deeper into Namibia we visit Swakopmund, the stunning sand dunes at Sossusvlei and desert camping under the incredible African skies. Continuing our loop we enter Botswana with a stop in the Kalahari with the San Bushmen before we discover the myriad of wildlife in the Okavango Delta. Exploring the waterways by traditional mokoro canoe is a truly magically experience. Botswana's Chobe National Park provides the last stage for our safari. Rich grasslands sustain a high concentration of wildlife which we see from our boat safaris. Our loop competes back in Livingstone having possible seen the big five and some of the best of these incredibly wondrous and diverse countries in the southern hemisphere.
