Cape Town to Victoria Falls 21 day &

Windhoek 14 day



Cape Town to Victoria Falls is one of the classic “overland” routes in Southern Africa, including the Namib Desert, Etosha NP and the Okavango Delta. The variety of highlights makes it easy to see why this is one of our most popular tours.

Day 1 CAPE TOWN  [guest house ---] 
Departing, after a tour briefing, from Cape Town at 08:00am we visit Hout Bay harbour en route to Cape Point Nature Reserve and then the African Penguin colony at Boulders Beach. We sample some of Cape Town’s culinary wonders at a local restaurant in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront (own expense).

Day 2 CEDERBERG  [camping BLD] 
[B = Breakfast, L = Lunch, D = Dinner] 
The Cederberg is a massive rocky wilderness where giant sandstone boulders have been sculpted by wind and rain into bizarre and artistic shapes. In the afternoon we explore the rugged landscape on foot.

Day 3 GARIEP RIVER  [camping BLD] 
We make our way into the more arid regions and upon entering Namibia, we camp at the Gariep River. Free time for swimming and relaxing or you can adventure down the river in canoes (own expense).

Day 4 FISH RIVER CANYON  [camping BLD] 
We make our way to Fish River canyon, the second larg¬est canyon in the world. In the afternoon we watch as a spectacular sunset slips over the canyon’s rim.

Day 5 - 6 NAMIB DESERT  [camping BLD] 
Towering red sand dunes of Sossusvlei form the gateway into the Namib Desert. We will walk to Sossusvlei, explore Sesriem Canyon and watch dramatic sunsets over the world’s highest sand dunes.

Day 7 - 8 SWAKOPMUND  [guest house Bx2 Lx1 -] 
Lunar landscapes surround the coastal town of Swakopmund as we approach the coast. Day free to explore the town or try quad biking / dune boarding (own expense). We enjoy evening restaurant meals (own expense).

Day 9 SPITZKOP  [camping BLD] 
Beautiful desert landscapes. We move north along the arid coast to the Cape Cross seal colony before heading inland to set up camp under the Spitzkoppe, huge granite domes rising out of the desert. Enjoy a magnificent sunset. We’ll take a short walk to explore the area.

Day 10 UGAB WILDERNESS  [camping BLD] 
Our next stop is the Brandberg where we camp next to the dry Ugab River, home to the rare desert elephants. We explore the mountains on foot with our local guides, who lead us through this region adorned with rock art.

Day 11 - 12 ETOSHA NP  [camping BLD] 
Etosha National Park, “the great white place of dry water”, in the game rich northwest corner of Namibia offers a variety of wildlife. We take game drives around the huge dry pan to find the elephants, herds of antelope and lions around the waterholes before we camp at Okaukuejo with its flood-lit waterhole. (Subject to animal movements we may use any of the 3 camps in Etosha.)

Day 13 WINDHOEK  [permanent tent BL-] 
The charm of the city of Windhoek lies in its harmonious blend of African and European cultures and the friendliness of its people. We visit the cosmopolitan capital and enjoy a restaurant meal (own expense).

Day 14 KALAHARI  [camping BLD] 
Crossing into Botswana we overnight in the heart of the Kalahari. We take a walk with the local San Bushmen to learn fascinating bush skills.

Day 15, 16, 17 OKAVANGO DELTA  [camping Bx3 Lx3 Dx2] 
We camp in Maun for a night in preparation before journeying deep into the Okavango Delta on Makoro (dugouts) - an experience not to be missed. We camp wild on remote islands for 2 nights and enjoy bush walks, swimming and the birdlife in this pristine wilderness area.

Day 18 MAKGADIKGADI PANS  [camping BL-] 
Feel the vastness of Africa under a big sky sunset. After the rains the pans fill with water and attract thousands of water birds and herds of zebra, wildebeest and springbok.
