African Wilderness in Comfort
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. Beginning in 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. Continuing our journey through the Caprivi Strip and via the Okavango River into Botswana, be part of an unforgettable 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. Staying in a combination of small hotels, safari lodges and permanent safari camps full of character (and with ensuite facilities), this journey will appeal to those seeking a comfortable African travel experience.

This was a fabulous trip that far exceeded our expectations. We were in amazing places that we had never dreamed of going to. The many hours of travel were never boring as the landscapes were so varied and interesting. And there is nothing like an African sunset. Accommodation was far superior to what we were expecting - again so varied, and very comfortable. A great group of people - 15 is a good number - we had a lot of laughs. And we all loved our guide/driver - Kembo! So knowledgeable, careful and with a good sense of humour. We would do it again tomorrow!
