Detailed Description

Begin the adventure in Cape Town, where you head north to Blaawberg to capture the classic Table Mountain image before continuing northwards towards Namibia. The west coast of South Africa is a stark and hauntingly beautiful landscape, and you camp for the night at a hot springs resort. The next day you cross into Namibia, and take a canoeing trip on the Orange River before heading for the Fish River Canyon, Africa’s equivalent of the Grand Canyon. Continue north, visiting the incredible dunes of Sossusvlei and the seaside town of Swakopmund. Visit the Cape Cross seal colony before heading inland to the Brandberg.  After visiting a cheetah project, spend three days experiencing the wildlife wonders of Etosha.

Crossing into Botswana, you set off on a traditional canoe into the Okavango Delta for a magical three-night camping trip in this wetland wilderness teeming with birds and animals. Head south to Maun town for a rest and an optional scenic flight over the Delta. The next day you head north to the Chobe National Park, where the largest dry-season gathering of elephants in the world takes place. Enjoy safari drives looking for big cats and boat cruises on the Chobe River, where hippos and water birds will fascinate you.

Finally, the journey ends with a night at Victoria Falls, one of the most impressive sights on Earth, where the spray is visible for miles, and the rumble of water going over the precipice can be heard a great distance away.
