Travel into Namibia and choose to relax with a boat trip.
Discover the watery wildlife haven of Okavango Delta by mokoro, a dugout canoe poled along by a local guide. Set up camp on a lush, remote island and fall asleep to the nocturnal music of the delta.
The African adventure continues back to Bagani before travelling to Rundu, where lush campsite spoils await.

Roam Etosha Park's dry plains, perhaps encountering elephants, antelope and big cats.
Watch the rock formations of Spitzkoppe change colour with the light.
See the seal colonies of Cape Cross then perhaps try optional activities such as skydiving, quad-biking or sandboarding in Swakopmund.
Wake before dawn and scramble to the top of the dunes for a dramatic sunrise view. The following day, explore Jurassic-era rock formations in the Giant's Playground.
Relax by the Fish River Canyon - one of the largest canyons in the world - which offers impressive photo opportunities.
Cross into South Africa and travel along the Orange River by canoe or simply laze by the scenic riverbanks.
The Vic Falls to Cape Town trip ends among the cafes and vineyards of this stunning bayside city. If time permits, stay an extra day or two to experience all the wonderful things Cape Town has to offer.
