What's included in this trip
Gorillas to Cape Adventure SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Choma is a small, friendly Zambian town halfway between Lusaka and Livingstone with a small market and smattering of shops.
Victoria Falls is a town on the Zimbabwean side of the falls, with spectacular views and a reputation as the adventure capital of Zimbabwe.
Founded in 1928 and the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe, Hwange National Park has a wealth of beautiful landscapes and a tremendous selection of wildlife.
Also known as the 'City of Kings', Bulawayo is Zimbabwe's second-largest city and still retains the parks, tree-lined streets and buildings of its colonial past.
The spectacular Makgadikgadi Pans are massive salt pans that are desolate (yet arresting) in the dry season and abundant in animals and birdlife during the wet.
Maun is a small town in Botswana that's the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Despite its touristy veneer, it still retains its rural feel.
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).
With donkeys competing with cars on the streets and cattle sellers operating alongside Delta tour operators, Maun has more on offer than the spectacular Okavango Delta.
Once someone's farm, D'Kar is now a very small rural village that has a handicraft initiative called Kuru, which supports the San Bushmen.
In Windhoek, it almost feels as if you've stepped out of Africa and into Europe with its Germanic architecture, cosy street cafes and modern malls.
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.
