Overview

*There is a surcharge applicable on the camping tour for the remainder of 2021. Please contact us for the updated itinerary and applicable charge. This is due to the campers spending additional nights in rooms*

Our tour begins in the adventure capital of Namibia, Swakopmund, where you can try your hand at quad biking, sand boarding and skydiving. If you’re in the mood to explore, you can take your time and admire the architecture and quaint shops or take a scenic flight over the coastal town. Heading inland, we visit a community of Himba people before arriving in Etosha National Park for a unique opportunity to see the desert elephants of Namibia. One of the elements that make the Etosha National park tours so memorable is that the camps sites within the park are built on the edge of water holes, so you can spend peaceful evenings with good company as the sun goes down watching the animals come down to the waterhole to drink. After visiting Windhoek, the next highlight of the tour is the Okavango Delta in Botswana Exploring the Okavango Delta is a must for any tourist visiting Botswana. Here, you’ll have an endless list of activities to participate in, truly making the most of your time in this paradise. Before the tour ends in Victoria Falls we make a visit to Chobe National Park, the third largest park in Botswana.
