What's included in this trip
Vic Falls to Cape Town SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Victoria Falls is a town on the Zimbabwean side of the falls, with spectacular views and a reputation as the adventure capital of Zimbabwe.
With a diverse range of ecosystems, a humungous number of elephants and the largest concentration of game found in Africa, Chobe National Park is safari heaven.
Sitting on the banks of the Okavango River, Bagani is a Namibian border town with plenty of river-based activities to enjoy.
Full of animals, islands and unforgettable scenery, the Okavango Delta is the world's largest inland delta and is best explored by mokoro (dugout canoe).
Bagani is a small, friendly town with some good hiking trails along the river and plenty of places to just relax. Located across the river from Angola, Rundu is a medium-sized town that is well-known for its wood carving and lively open market.
A big farming community famed for its proximity to the Hoba Meteorite, Grootfontein is a lovely town with shady streets and a number of historic buildings.
With excellent game viewing and stunning landscapes, Etosha National Park was established in 1907 and is home to hundreds of animal, reptile and bird species.
With its 700 million-year-old granite peaks, prehistoric rock art and dramatic vistas, Spitzkoppe is another of Namibia's wondrous landscapes.
Swakopmund sits on Namibia's Atlantic Coast, virtually surrounded by the Namib Desert, and has beautiful colonial architecture and a large array of adventure sports on offer.
With the Sesriem Canyon close by and the incredible Sossusvlei sand dunes at its doorstep, tiny Sesriem serves as a gateway to these Namibian wonders. One of the oldest settlements in Namibia, the small town of Bethanie was founded by the London Missionary Society, who failed to influence the locals with their church.
A truly spectacular sight to behold, especially at sunset, Fish River Canyon's orange-pink hues and momentous size are awe-inspiring.
Located on the north bank of the Orange River near the South African border, Noordoewer is a great place to see by canoe. Teeming with hot springs and a great place to camp and hike, Citrusdal is a sweet town set amongst the beautiful scenery of South Africa's Western Cape.
Dominated by spectacular Table Mountain, Cape Town is a city that keeps on giving with its beautiful coastlines, world-class cuisine, excellent wineries and beautiful architecture.
