Overview

We kick of with the Delta & Kruger adventure tour in Windhoek. The capital city of Namibia. We make our way to Botswana and the Kalahari Desert and continue to the Okavango Delta where we will take you in the heart of Botswana’s most untouched wilderness, for a two night experience. This unique and unusual ecosystem sees the annual flood waters of the Okavango River fan out into the sands of the Kalahari Basin. In Chobe National Park we will watch the sunset from the comfort of our boat while elephants bathe and play on the river banks. On arrival in Victoria Falls, opportunities for adventure are bottomless! Victoria Falls safaris are among the most popular activities to participate in when visiting the falls. Guests can embark on bush safaris – on foot, horseback or in a vehicle – and embark on a Zambezi cruise along the waters before the falls. We transit to Johannesburg where our Kruger tour begins – a great opportunity for you to see lions, elephants, buffalo, leopard and rhino, to name but a few. Our return journey to Johannesburg takes us via the scenic Panorama Route where we will visit God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and the Three Rondavels.

Botswana – Ghanzi

Today we travel east and make our way to neighbouring Botswana and the Kalahari Desert. Starkly different to the Namib Desert after which Namibia is named, the Kalahari is no less dramatic and covers over 900 000 square kilometres. The San people have long been associated with this harsh environment and this afternoon we will enjoy an informative guided walk with the San community.  Tonight we enjoy a dance evening that provides an insight into their culture of song, dance and story-telling.
