Itinerary

The adventure starts with a visit to Victoria Falls - a thundering, mist-shrouded sheet of white water.
Enjoy exciting game drives in Botswana's Chobe National Park and an optional cruise along the Chobe River on the lookout for wallowing hippos and soaring fish eagles.
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 to Bagani where we set up camp for the night.
Meet the San Bushmen of the Kalahari and observe their age-old traditions on a desert tracking and gathering trip.
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.
Make our way towards the Namib Desert. The following day wake before dawn and scramble to the top of the dunes for a dramatic sunrise view before jumping in the back of 4x4's to explore the surreal landscape of Sossusvlei.
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.
This 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.
