A journey through the lush green Okavango Delta and the beautiful desolation of the Namib desert is an exploration of a lifetime across Southern Africa. Exciting wildlife in Etosha National Park, walking the red sand dunes of Sossusvlei and adventure through the Okavango Delta by mokoro.

Please note that this is a limited participation safari. An essential part of your safari is participation. From putting up your tent to packing the truck in the morning – it’s all part of your adventure. Your tour leaders will do all the meal preparation but we do ask for your help (on rotation) with the washing up. There are some long travel days which means early morning starts so we all need to get involved to make the day run efficiently.
