African Wilderness in Comfort
At the southern end of the African continent, the countries we visit are packed with adventure, nature, culture and scenery. From the vast dunes of the Namibian desert, to the teeming animal life of Etosha, this itinerary traverses the greatest parks, rivers and landscapes that Africa’s south has to offer. From Cape Town we head north, passing through the Namaqualand region, and witness the Orange River plummet 56m over Augrabies Falls. We travel into the starkly beautiful Kalahari and spend two nights in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. At the extremities of the vast Namib Desert we marvel at Fish River Canyon, second largest in the world, and observe wildlife in Etosha National Park. Travelling through the Caprivi Strip and via the Okavango River into Botswana be part of an unforgetable wildlife encounter along the Chobe River. The mighty Victoria Falls provide a sensational backdrop to a multitude of adventurous options and a fitting end to this amazing journey through southern Africa.

A Fantastic Journey. The African wilderness in comfort trip was much better than I anticipated, it was so exciting seeing all the animals on the game drives and the scenery was very dramatic. The accommodation in the lodges was top class and in many ways way more luxurious than I expected.
