Southern Africa Explorer

An excellent, value for money trip. My sister was especially impressed, having little previous experience of camping. The office did an excellent job dealing with our booking.

Southern Africa Explorer

The countries that lie at the southern end of the African continent evoke a strong spirit of the wild. From the seemingly empty and endless dunes of the Namibian desert to the teeming animal life of Etosha National Park, this itinerary traverses the greatest parks, reserves and landscapes that the south has to offer. From Cape Town we head north to explore the dramatic landscapes of the Namib Desert. Marvel at the enormity of the Fish River Canyon, be transfixed by the delicate shapes of the Sossusvlei sand dunes and search for desert elephants or the endemic oryx of Etosha. In Botswana explore two of Africa’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the Okavango Delta and along the Chobe River. The magnificent Victoria Falls provides the focus for a plethora of adventurous options and final stop on this journey.
