We use mokoros (small dugout canoes) to pass through the shallow waterways of the Okavango Delta to get to our campsite for the night.
We use our purpose-built overland vehicles for the duration of this trip. This multi-purpose truck allows for great game viewing with large sliding windows. As such the trucks do not have air-conditioning and conditions can be dusty and hot.
The overland vehicle is large enough to seat up to 22 passengers and carries all the camping equipment needed for the duration of this trip. Therefore the going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads.
This is a participatory camping trip. You will be expected to set up and take down you own tent as well as assist with food preparation and cleaning.
As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.
1. A single supplement is available on this trip except for nights 7 to 9 in Swakopmund.. Please see your booking agent for further information.
2. This is a combination trip and the composition of your group may change in Victoria Falls.
3. The Zanzibar portion of your itinerary may have a few more passengers than the maximum group size of 22 as we have a crossover of trips starting and finishing in Zanzibar.
4. This trip finishes upon arrival at our finish point hotel in Zanzibar at 10am on Day 40. Please do not book any flights until after 2pm this afternoon.
Our Cape Town to Zanzibar trips score an average of 4.75 out of 5 based on 4 reviews in the last year.
Animals! Phenomenal landscapes! A feeling of going where others do not go! This trip was diverse and enriching. Namibia wins for landscape, Botswana wins for adventure, Zambia wins for animals, Malawi wins for people, Zanzibar wins for beaches. You have to be okay with bugs, heat, long travel days, early mornings, and the occasional predator outside your tent - but, by 2 weeks in, you will feel like you were born in a tent and the hard edges will become more familiar. I loved this adventure - so many tales to tell.

Excellent trip, the best for me was Namibia- the sand dunes at sunrise just breathtaking. Do be aware the last few days of the trip you spend 13 to 15hrs on the truck....very long days.
