Small Group Safari - Multi Country Adventure from Windhoek to Victoria Falls

21 Day Adventure

Day 1: Arrive Windhoek, Namibia

Welcome to Namibia. On arrival at Windhoek Airport, you will be met and transferred to your accommodation. The rest of the afternoon may be spent at leisure.

Windhoek is Namibia’s capital, and is a clean, safe and well-organised city with a colonial legacy that is reflected in its many German eateries and shops, and the widespread use of the German language. Windhoek has an interesting mix of historical and modern architecture. If you have time, a few places worth looking at are the Alte Feste (Old Fort), the 1896 Christuskirche (Christ Church), and the more contemporary Supreme Court.

This evening you will meet your group for your pre-departure meeting.

Days 2-3: Windhoek to Naukluft Mountains and Sossusvlei, Namibia

Travel south towards the Namib Naukluft National Park your river camp. This park contains the oldest desert in the world.

The next morning, visit the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. These dunes can reach heights of over 300m are spectacular and provide for a fantastic photo opportunity. With luck, there may even be water in the vlei (lake). We also stop to view the Sesriem Canyon, which was carved millions of years ago by the Tsauchab River.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Days 4-5: Naukluft National Park to Swakopmund, Namibia

The wildlife of this harsh landscape include the Oryx, Springbok and Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra. Stop in the small town of Walvis Bay where you may spot a variety of birds including Flamingos in the lagoon. Arrive in Swakopmund in the late afternoon where you will have the rest of the day at leisure.

Set along the spectacular Namibian coastline, the seaside town of Swakopmund is known for its wide open avenues, colonial architecture, and is surrounded by otherworldly desert terrain. Founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South West Africa, it is a quirky mix of German and Namibian influences, adventure options, laidback atmosphere and cool sea breezes.

On day 5 you have the opportunity to visit a local sustainability centre to explore the ways they preserve energy, water, waste and biodiversity. The rest of the day you can choose an optional activity such as sandboarding, desert tour, township tour, skydiving, scenic flights, fishing, kayaking or a dolphin, seal and whale cruise (optional activities, additional expense). Alternatively just soak up the atmosphere of this little quaint German town and enjoy its beauty and beaches.

From nearby Mokoro Station, todays adventure begins in dug-out canoes through the thick vegetation of the Okavango Delta discovering a variety of birds and wildlife. Unlike other deltas the Okavango River flows inland to the Kalahari Desert and without ever reaching the coast creates an inland delta. After this spectacular excursion, make your way to a safari camp in the Greater Moremi region. Once settled in, enjoy dinner and go on a night drive to spot nocturnal animals in this private concession.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 14: Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

Spend the day on game drives in an open 4×4 vehicle exploring the Moremi Game Reserve. This large area is renowned for its concentration of mammals, it is not unusual to see many different types of wildlife during just one game drive. Depending on the time of the year you may see different species, the best time is the end of the dry season or spring from August to November. During this season, for the best game viewing possible extra driving may be required due to the animals migrating closer to the river. In the summer, birdlife can also be viewed in abundance with exceptional sightings of wildfowl and raptors.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 15: Greater Moremi to Nata, Botswana

Leave the bush behind and travel east towards the Makgadikgadi Pans, once a large river fed lake, however the pans are now saline and empty.

(Note: a visit to the pans is subject to road conditions, water levels and time constraints).

The next day you enjoy a morning game drive in Chobe National Park, with the hope of spotting big game up close and also the possibility of an encounter with one of the large predators.
