ITINERARY

Day 1 CAPE TOWN (Sweetest Guesthouses)
Cape Town is one of the most picturesque cities in the world, with the majestic Table Mountain providing its central focus. After a tour briefing at 8:00am, we visit the African Penguin colony en route to Cape Point Nature Reserve, and spend the rest of the day relaxing on Hout Bay beach. We sample some of Cape Town’s culinary wonders at a local restaurant at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront (own expense).

Day 2 CEDERBERG (Uitkyk Cottage)

The Cederberg is a massive rock wilderness with giant sandstone boulders that have been sculpted by wind and rain into bizarre and artistic shapes. We head north to the Cederberg and explore the rugged landscape on foot before relaxing in chalets for the evening.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 3 GARIEP RIVER (Felix Unite Cabanas)
We make our way into the more arid regions and upon entering Namibia, we stay at a lodge on the Gariep River. Namibia’s southern border river flows quietly and peacefully and the river valley is hardly affected by tourism. The riverbed is sandy, the water clean and clear. Time free for swimming and relaxing or you can venture down the river in canoes (own expense).
Included meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 4 FISH RIVER CANYON (Canyon Lodge)
The Fish River Canyon, situated along the lower reaches of the Fish River, is one of the most impressive natural beauties in the southern part of Namibia. With its depth of up to 550 metres, the Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon in the world. We make our way to the canyon and in the afternoon watch a spectacular sunset as the sun slips over the canyon’s rim.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 5 – 6 NAMIB DESERT (Desert Camp)
The parched Namib Desert has endless orange dunes blown into sharp ridges by the sand-shifting wind and at Sossusvlei they form a gateway into the Namib Desert. We will walk to Sossusvlei, explore Sesriem Canyon and watch a dramatic sunset over the world’s highest sand dunes.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 7 – 8 SWAKOPMUND (Hotel d’Avignon)
Swakopmund is a popular seaside resort with a slightly nostalgic atmosphere, characterized by numerous colonial buildings. In terms of flora, both the Welwitschia Mirabilis and the Kokerboom grow on the stony plains of the Namib and many beautiful specimens surround this coastal town. Swakopmund is also the adventure activity capital of Namibia. Day free to explore the town or try dune boarding or sea kayaking (own expense).
Included meals: breakfast x2, lunch x1

Day 9 DAMARALAND (White Lady Lodge)
Namibia is a land of great contrasts and Damaraland demonstrates this with stark plains, petrified forests and ancient valleys leading to rocky outcrops and the soaring peaks of the Brandberg Massif Mountains.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 10 – 11 ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK (Tarentaal Guestfarm)
Once a vast lake fed by the Kunene River, the pan that is Etosha NP dried up thousands of years ago when the river waters chose a new course. Etosha is big game country. We take game drives around the huge pan to find the elephants, herds of antelope and lions around the waterholes. We stay at a lodge on the outskirts of the national park.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 12 WINDHOEK (Klein Windhoek Guesthouse)
This pretty town, beautifully situated in a valley, combines the architecture of a modern city with numerous buildings in the style of the German colonial era. 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).
Included meals: breakfast and lunch

Day 13 KALAHARI (Dqae Qare San Lodge)
Crossing into Botswana we overnight in huts with the local San D’Kar community in the heart of the Kalahari. We take a walk with the local Bushmen to learn fascinating bush skills.

Please note it is possible to finish this safari on the morning of day 13, making a 13 day safari from Cape Town to Windhoek.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 14, 15, 16 OKAVANGO DELTA (Island Safari Lodge + tented camping x2)
The Okavango Delta is the only inland delta in the world. Instead of flowing into the sea, the annual flood of fresh water, spreads over 15000sq km of the Kalahari sand in a maze of lagoons and channels. We journey deep into the Okavango Delta on mekoro (dugouts). We have 2 nights at our tented camp and enjoy game walks, swimming, the birdlife and game in this pristine wilderness area.
Included meals: breakfast x3, lunch x3, dinner x2

Day 17 MAKGADIKGADI PANS (Nata Lodge  or Pelican Lodge)
The shimmering saltpans of Makgadikgadi are the size of Switzerland and most of the time appear as a glaring, white, endless plain. When the rain comes a dramatic change takes place as the pans come to life with frantically feeding water birds and great herds of zebra, wildebeest and springbok.
Included meals: breakfast and lunch

Day 18 CHOBE NATIONAL PARK (Thebe River Lodge)
Chobe National Park is famous for large herds of elephant and buffalo. Our afternoon is spent on an exciting wildlife boat cruise in the Chobe NP.
Included meals: breakfast and lunch

Day 19, 20, 21 ZIMBABWE/VICTORIA FALLS (Rainbow Hotel)
Magnificent Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. David Livingstone ‘discovered’ the falls in 1885 and named them after his Queen. The scene he encountered was a mile-wide (1.6 km) sheer basalt fault line over which the mighty Zambezi tumbled to a depth of 100m, creating a cloud of spray. The falls are also the centre of a wide range of activities, including white water rafting on the mighty Zambezi, elephant back rides, scenic flights or a 111m bungi jump (own expense). Tour ends at 08:00am at the hotel.
Included meals: breakfast x3
