Itinerary

Boasting vineyards, adventure activities, restaurants and attractions both in and around the city, Cape Town is a delight. It is also the perfect place to kick off the ultimate overland tour of Africa.
Spend a night on a farm then cross into Namibia to camp on the banks of the Orange River.
Travel to Fish River Canyon in time for a spectacular sunset over the surrounding region.
Climb to the top of one of the world's highest sand dunes in the Namib-Naukluft National Park. Wake early to witness sunrise over the golden dunes.
Enjoy adventure activities in Swakopmund, an oasis between the desert and the beach.
View thousands of seals basking on the shores of Cape Cross before gazing at the wonder of the rocky Spitzkoppe.
From big carnivores to over 340 bird species, there's plenty to spot on this adventure into vast Etosha park, one of the largest national parks in Africa.
Head out tracking and gathering with the San Bushmen, perhaps picking up a few words of their local 'clicking' language.
Travel onwards to Rundu before reaching the vast swamps of Bagani.
Make tracks for the expansive Okavango Delta in Botswana. Explore the maze of reed beds and waterways onboard a mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe.
Relax in laidback Bagani and perhaps enjoy some of the optional activities, including boat tours, fishing and hiking.
Try to spy swimming elephants, wallowing hippos or sun-loving crocs on a cruise along the Chobe River.
