Itinerary

Travel to South Africa and visit Cape Town, where the imposing plateau of Table Mountain is the crowning glory. Use free time to explore the vibrant atmosphere of this beautiful city by visiting cafes, galleries, restaurants, shops and beaches.
South Africa's quaint coastal town of Lamberts Bay is best explored on foot. View spectacular flocks of gannet that breed here in the months of August and September, then indulge in a fresh seafood feast in the evening.
Travel to Namibia and journey to the serenity of the Orange River.
Glide across the waters in a canoe, under the shadow of the ancient Richtersveld Mountains. Drive to Fish River Canyon, one of the largest canyons in the world. A beautiful area teeming with birdlife and small mammals, this landscape is seriously photogenic.
Travel to the vast and imposing sands of the Namib Desert - the red, dusty landscapes are breathtaking.
With the help of a knowledgeable local guide, climb some of the world's highest dunes and learn about the parched landscape of the Sossusvlei. Experience the immense silence of the desert while travelling across the strange moonscapes of the Namib-Naukluft Park. After the desert adventure, travel to Swakopmund to enjoy beaches, European architecture, boutiques and scores of good restaurants.
Travel to Namibia's colonial-style capital, Windhoek, stopping to buy colourful tribal souvenirs from locals at markets along the way. After this introductory tour around the country, perhaps stay longer to experience Namibia in even more depth.

Notes

1. A single supplement is available on this trip
2. An airport arrival transfer is included. Please provide your flight details at the time of booking
3. Please do not book any flights out of Windhoek on the last day of this trip - Day 9.
The Airport is located 1hr drive out of Windhoek and although we generally make it back to the hotel in Windhoek by 5:00pm, it can be difficult to get to the airport in time for flights.

CHANGES TO THE TRIP FOR 2013:

Please note that this trip will be 1 day longer in 2013 ( 9 days instead of 8 ). Passenger feedback has indicated that Sossusvlei is a highlight of the trip and passengers would prefer to spend 2 nights here instead of just 1 so we have ammended the itinerary accordingly. This trip will still depart on Saturdays.

The new Itinerary will be:

Day 1 Cape Town
Day 2 Lamberts Bay
Day 3 Orange River
Day 4 Fish River Canyon
Days 5-6 Sossusvlei
Day 7-8 Swakopmund
Day 9 Windhoek
