Our tours come with an Activity Package. This is an optional additional payment that covers what we consider to be ‘essential activities’ on our tours and therefore this itinerary has been written with these items included in the day-by-day itinerary. Ideally we would include all of these, but not everyone can afford this.
Zimbabwe – Victoria Falls
Today we visit the spectacular Victoria Falls National Park. As we stay in Victoria Falls tonight, you have sufficient time to explore the falls and visit all of the view-points for some great photo opportunities.
Victoria Falls - Zimbabwe to Kasane - Botswana
We depart Victoria Falls and head towards Kasane. Upon arrival at Kasane we set up camp on the banks of the Chobe River. This afternoon we enjoy a scenic sunset boat cruise in Chobe National Park. Elephants, Hippo, Crocodiles, Eland and many other creatures reside in Chobe so keep your cameras ready.
Gateway to the Delta

We depart early and head towards Ghanzi. Once at camp we will meet with a local Bushmen community and experience some traditional Tribal Dancing. There are also some traditional bushman huts that you have the opportunity to stay in for a nominal fee.
Today is a long driving day to the Namibian border and on to Windhoek in the centre of Namibia arriving in the early evening. On arrival in Windhoek our guide will take us on a short city tour in our truck. Tonight there is an optional dinner out in town at Joe’s Beer House, definitely a feast for all the senses.
Etosha National Park
Leaving the city sights behind us, we travel into Namibia’s barren northern area. On the way we stop at a popular craft market where you can barter for handmade gifts to take home. We enter Etosha National Park and game drive through to our campsite for the night.
Etosha National Park
Etosha is the venue for some of the most unique game viewing experiences in Africa. The sparse grasslands allow great opportunities to see animals normally hidden in dense vegetation. You may even see some of the amazing animals crossing the road in front of your truck! We will go on various game drives and spend our evenings at the abundant waterholes for some excellent game photography.
As it is a short drive to Outjo, our destination for the night, we will spend the morning enjoying our last game drive through the park. Your afternoon is at leisure, so you can relax around the pool at our lodge.
We visit a Himba community close to Kamanjab where you will have an opportunity to interact with the people who live there. This is a working village and is only a representation of a larger group of nomadic pastoralists.
The semi-nomadic Himba people are extremely susceptible to Western influence and have lost a large portion of their land to farmers, engineers, miners and many were displaces during the wars that raged in Angola. The dwindling number of pastoralists that still exist in their natural environment are protected as far as possible by creating a “buffer zone”, or an “educational tribe” where tourists who would like to get a better understanding of the way of the Himba, their lifestyle and their traditions, can do so without interfering with those still living in their natural environment.
Visiting the Himba tribe can be a controversial topic that gets discussed at the camp fire, however not so much if the reason for visiting this particular tribe is understood beforehand.
The income that this specific tribe generates from the visits goes towards the education of orphaned Himba children and assists the tribe in giving them a chance to learn about their own culture and heritage.
There is a market at the end of your visit, this is a way for the women to establish a small income, used for their own private expenses, and it is up to you whether you’d like to purchase anything or not.
En route to Swakopmund, we visit Spitzkoppe. Our guide will take us on a walk to marvel at the incredible landscape. Then we travel to Namibia’s Atlantic coast and Swakopmund, Namibia’s adventure capital. You will be briefed on the optional activities available here. At night there is an optional dinner at a local restaurant where you can try different types of local dishes.
Although your tour comes to an end this morning after breakfast, you can spend the day to explore or participate in one of the many activities available here. Most popular activities are quad biking in the dunes or tandem skydiving. Taking a walk around Swakopmund’s shops and having a leisurely lunch is also a great way to spend your day. You can book post tour accommodation through your travel agent or Nomad directly.
