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.

Experience Namibia, January 2014
we were delayed at the SA/nam border as our guide and driver did not have their work permits. it was extremely hot and there was not seating whilst waiting. our trip continued with staff frolm Felix Unite - they were very good but did not have the knowledge of our guide. The pace of the tour was very fast - we stayed at lovely lodges/hotels but didnt have time to appreciate them. please note i can comment on 4 days only out of 8 because of the problem with work permits. Emma was excellent as a guide and very knowledgeable. she responded to the incident mentioned with the driver verywell.

Great tour. Emma was fantastic. I have taken many Intrepid tours, and she was the best leader that I have had.
