Botswana and Zimbabwe
Victoria Falls – Caprivi (2 days)
You arrive in Kasane. We recommend you to arrive at least 1 day before so you’re well rested for the big adventure. You will stay at the fantastic Senyati Lodge where elephants, buffalo’s and lions come to drink at our camp. From here, we visit the natural wonder of Victoria Falls to see the largest sheet of falling water on earth. Standing up close to the ‘smoke that thunders’ is an unforgettable experience! The next day drive through the Caprivi Strip on to Etosha.
Etosha 2 days
Covering 20 000 km² of arid bushveld and the barren Etosha Pan that offers superb game viewing in a dramatic wild setting. We explore the southern section and stay at the camp near Etosha and inside. The next day, our driver takes us to active waterholes as we make our way to Namutoni Camp on the fringes of the vast Etosha Pan. Sightings include elephants, lions, zebras, rhinos, jackals, wildebeest, giraffes, kudus and antelopes.
Kaokoland and the Himba’s 2 days
After exiting Etosha we will drive to Opuwa. Here we will say at the ABBA Guesthouse. A peaceful home away from home that to sponsor a feeding scheme and private school in Opuwo. At the moment, they have 150 very talented kids. Here we will have a braai with the kids and a dance off. You will definitely loose those kids got moves ya’ll.
Next day It’s time for some Himba country. The Himba’s are beautiful people who still live traditionally. We will have a chance to meet Chief Kapika (former royalty) and travel on to the magnificent and secluded Epupa Falls. This is a trip where the goal as well as the journey are equally magnificent. We’ll also visit the magnificent Epupa Waterfalls.
Skeleton coast – Spitzkoppe (2 days)
We leave Himba country to drive across the oldest desert in the world. The Namibian Desert is Namibia’s most iconic destination. We’ll stay at an oasis near Skeleton coast. Entering the next day and visiting Cape Cross, home of millions of seals. We arrive at Henties Bay from where we start our epic 4×4 drive to Spitzkoppe (If the Omaruru river is not flowing). We camp at Spitzkoppe and enjoy a morning climb so see the most memorable sunrise you will ever experience. After that we drive to Swakopmund where we have a chilled out day and everyone can have some private time if they wish.The next day we hit the track again to Sesriem near the Namib-Naukluft National Park, where the best-known landmarks of the Namib Desert are located. From Sesriem we will explore the ancient desert to experience the majesty and solitude of this stark environment.
Sossusvlei – Namibia (2 days)
Arriving at our camp in Sesriem we settle in and have time to explore this arid area on foot. At the end of the day we witness the changing colors of the desert as the sun sets and at night we are treated to spectacular stargazing. We get up before sunrise, heading into the Namib-Naukluft National Park in time to climb Dune 45 and watch the sunrise. Seeing the desert at sunrise is an amazing sight as the red-orange sands light up and the shadows shift across the dunes.
Driving closer to Sossusvlei we take the shuttle and then walk the final stretch to the salt pan. The much-photographed Sossusvlei Dunes are amongst the tallest in the world, rising up to 300 meters tall. We walk on the dry, white clay of the salt pan amid the blackened, dead acacia trees, capturing this striking and surreal setting encircled with ochre dunes on camera.
After exploring the Namib Desert we return to camp to enjoy the magical blanket of stars.
Swakopmund (1 day)
This morning we cross the gravel plains and the Tropic of Capricorn en route to Walvis Bay on the Atlantic Ocean coastline. We continue to Swakopmund, Namibia’s most popular beach destination. Your guide briefs you on the exciting activities available in Swakopmund when we arrive. During the day there is plenty to do and at night you can eat out and have some fun out on the town.
Fish River Canyon (2 days)
We travel next day to visit a very ancient canyon, you guys will need to put their imagination to good use to envision how much water was needed to create something of this scale. The views are spectacular and the size is indescribable. While the Fish River is not often more than a trickle of water, the annual rainy season can see it turn to a flood to isolated pools before quickly returning back to a trickle. We will however get to chill in some hot-water pools at Ais Ais.
South Africa (2 days)
Arriving in the Cederberg Mountains we set out to climb up to a hidden waterfall for a dip in a pool. We camp gecko creek beneath the stars. Our adventure ends in Cape Town, the most scenic city in the world. The Monkeys will drop you at the airport unless you are staying in cape town. you are welcome to stay at the Monkey Mansion.

Kgalagadi, Moremi and Chobe are especially renowned for predator watching and for large herbivores such as blue wildebeest, springbok, eland and red hartebeest. Ground Squirrel and Suricate (Meerkat) are two more of the park’s more prominent species. Both these ground dwelling species can easily be seen throughout the park. Honey Badger and Bat-eared Fox are some of the park specials to search for. But it is the predators that are the park’s biggest attraction. Excellent chance to seeing cheetah, leopard, brown and spotted hyena and the black-maned lion. Moremi and Chobe are home to more buffalo’s and elephants then people. This means you will find huge herds off those. Along with crocodiles, Leoperds, hippos, an array of antelopes (including impala, roan, kudu and sable), and too many to list up here.
We highly recommend you arrive at least 1 or 2 days in advance to make sure you are on time and well rested. We also recommend you leave a couple of days later if you need to catch a flight. Botswana is beautiful but wild and primitive. We will encounter difficulties that are part of the adventure and perhaps some delays. We can’t be held accountable if you miss your flight.
We are more than happy to recommend and help you book accommodation if you wish in Kasane or Cape Town!
