CAPE TOWN

We start our tour in Cape Town, considered by many to be one of the world’s most beautiful cities. We meet at the MOJO HOTEL at 13h00, and after a briefing and some formalities, the adventure begins with a hike up Table Mountain, led by our tour guide. The views over the city and the Atlantic Ocean are spectacular. The next day we explore the scenic Cape Peninsula by vehicle, visiting Hout Bay, Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. We return to the Lodge to freshen up, then head out for dinner and a night of fun at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. On occasion we may have to adjust this itinerary to accommodate the weather.

WEST COAST

We leave the Mother City behind us and after one last view of Table Mountain from across the bay, we travel north through the “Swartland” and along the West Coast into Namaqualand, a completely new environment shaped largely by the winds blowing off the cold Benguela current. In the early spring, this usually barren area comes to life with the blooming of numerous desert adapted flower species. The old Bushmen believed the flowers represented the souls of departed springbok.

Our route is one of contrast and ever-changing scenery, from wide open spaces to the dramatic rock formations found in the Cederberg. We overnight along the coast and enjoy a homemade meal.

We enjoy a relaxed afternoon along the banks of the river and prepare for our canoe excursion the following day. We spend two nights in comfortable accommodation.

The Orange River is the longest river in South Africa and creates a natural border to Namibia. Seen from above, the river forms a green ribbon winding its way through the desert and towering mountains of the Richtersveld National Park. After breakfast on the second morning our canoe trip will follow the river at a relaxed pace, allowing guests to enjoy the tranquillity of the surrounding views.
In the late afternoon we will return to our accommodation to relax and enjoy the surrounding beauty.

The reserve offers guests a private and secluded desert experience, a day for learning that the desert is not a dead barren wasteland, but a vibrant living thing.

During our stay here we conduct a guided walk with our guide to gain more insight on the surrounding desert. During the heat of the day guests have time to relax at the lodge or to explore the surrounding area on foot should they wish to. In the afternoon we depart on a desert drive. During the drive we stop at a suitable place to enjoy the sunset and a traditional sundowner drink. Once it is dark we slowly drive back to the Lodge and hope to encounter some nocturnal animals adapted to living in the desert.

ETOSHA

Etosha is unique. At its heart is a vast salt pan, Etosha Pan, nearly 5000km² of dazzling white, sun-baked lake bed in the dry winter, and a shallow sea with tens of thousands of strutting flamingos, jumping fish and lurking terrapins in summer. Surrounding this pan is a varied landscape of bushveld and grassland, home to hundreds of species of wildlife.
We will spend these days exploring the expanses of park from the high vantage point of our vehicle, game driving and visiting water holes. During peak season, when the rest camps are crowded, we may opt for accommodation outside the park.

DAY 14

CAPRIVI

After a short game drive, we leave the harshness of the area, and head for the lush lands of the Caprivi. The Caprivi got its name from the German Chancellor Leo von Caprivi who negotiated the land acquisition from the UK in order to gain access to the Zambezi River.
From the park we cover some distance today and will travel through many villages and towns, giving us a glimpse into the daily lives of the local people. Tonight we stay on the banks of the mighty Okavango River in relative comfort.

Meals: B L D
Included Highlights/Activity:

– Scenic drive through Namibia

DAY 15-16

OKAVANGO DELTA

It is with great excitement that we cross the border into Botswana and travel the short distance to the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta and a truly unique spectacle of nature.

The Okavango River, emanating from central Angola, far to the northwest, flows south- and eastwards, before slowing and spreading into one of the world’s only true inland deltas, creating as it does so a unique ecosystem that supports a huge variety of animal and plant life. The sight of a Jacana striding delicately amongst the flowering lilies, the Bee Eater diving to prey on an unsuspecting insect, and of course the familiar cry of the African Fish Eagle – all combine to create the canvas of one of nature’s unique masterpieces. The river, eventually spilling its contents into the vast plains of the Makgadikgadi sands, disappears.

Our comfortable and well-appointed camp on the edge of one of the largest lagoons serves as a base from which we explore. We will glide through narrow reed-lined channels by mokoro, walk on uninhabited islands, and picnic in the wilderness, while learning about the animals and plants of the Delta from local guides who have grown up in the area. Through informal interaction with the guides, we will have the opportunity to learn about the local people and their way of life in this isolated wilderness. We will also have time to simply relax and enjoy the views over a glistening lagoon from a beautiful wooden deck, cold drink in hand, or take a refreshing dip in the pool. We will enjoy a relaxing sunset cruise on a boat. A helicopter flip, to see the vastness of the Delta from the air, is recommended (own expense).

Meals: B L D; B L D
Included Highlights / Activity:
– Okavango Delta
– Guided walk in the Delta led by local Motswana guides
– Mokoro trip

Meals: B L D
Included Highlights/Activity:
– Private Tented Lodge on the banks of the Boteti River

DAY 18

MAKGADIKGADI PANS

After the early mornings of the last few days, we enjoy a relaxed start at the lodge today, spending time along the river bank enjoying the tranquillity of the area, or lounging at the swimming pool. For those interested, we recommend going on a local village walk. Chenoga Village, not far from our lodge, is not on a regular tourist route, so you have the opportunity to explore an authentic village with one of our staff from the lodge, who lives in the village.

We have an early lunch, before continuing our journey eastward into the spectacular Makgadikgadi Salt Pans area. Oceans of golden grass give way to the stark white pans, under a very big sky. We stop to take in the isolation and serenity of this expanse, before continuing to our accommodation for the night, Elephant Sands Lodge. Close-up sightings of elephants at the water hole are almost guaranteed.

Meals: B L D
Included Highlights / Activity:
– Relaxed morning
– Visit to Makgadikgadi Salt Pans

DAY 19

KASANE - VICTORIA FALLS

Venturing north today, we leave the desolation of the pans behind and make our way up to the mighty Chobe River. The Chobe area is known for the huge herds of elephants and other animals that are attracted to drink from the river. Renowned for its Elephant herds, these majestic animals are known for the absolute gentleness and love of their young and affection for their herd. This afternoon we enjoy an extensive boat cruise within Chobe National Park. Gliding close to the banks we hope to approach the animals from the river for close up viewing. Our cruise will explore the Chobe riverfront and a section of the Namibian side of the Chobe River. Back on land, we cross the border into Zimbabwe and make our way to the GREENFIRE LODGE VICTORIA FALLS. The lodge is centrally situated and within walking distance of the falls and other attractions.

Meals: B L D
Included Highlights/Activity:

DAY 20

VICTORIA FALLS

Awaking in the adventure capital of Africa, it is with new excitement that we explore the amazing Victoria Falls. “Mosi o Tunya “, meaning “The smoke that Thunders”. On this day we include your entry into the falls and leave you to admire this wonder of the world.

During our stay various other attractions can be visited like the tribal village or curio market. Vic Falls is also home to a multitude of adventure activities such as an aircraft flip over the falls or a boat trip on the Zambezi River, white water rafting or bungee jumping, but allowance must be made for the extra expense.

We spend two nights here, thus allowing clients some time to explore the town and all it has to offer by themselves. Tonight we will eat out in a local restaurant (own expense). Relax to the sound of the African night and the distant roar of the falls and drink the farewell toasts to your adventure.

Meals: B (Lunch and Dinner own expense)

More about Botswana

Botswana might be one of the flattest countries, but don't be fooled into thinking that means it's dull. Almost 80% of the landlocked country is covered by the spectacular Kalahari Desert. There's also the lush Okavango Delta, which is the largest inland delta in the world, and Makgadigadi pan, one of the biggest salt pans on earth. Nearly 38% of the country is national parks and wildlife reserves and in Botswana you'll find the world's biggest concentration of African elephants. What you won't find are many people, with a population density of only approximately 4 people/km2. Amongst these inhabitants are descendants of the world's oldest tribe, the San, who date back over 22,000 years and still speak with the 'click' language and practice tribal traditions.

More about Namibia

Namibia has to be one of the most curious countries in southwest Africa, thanks to its cultural influences, amazingly varied landscapes and extraordinary dedication to protecting its wildlife and natural wonders. Its border to the west is the Atlantic Ocean and its land borders include Zambia, Angola, Botswana and South Africa. Early inhabitants of this sparsely populated land were the San, Damara and Nama people. Today the Ovambo is the largest ethnic group in the country. You'll see signs of the country's German heritage as well, in the capital of Windhoek and the colonial-era buildings in the coastal town of Swakopmund. Despite being the driest country in Sub-Saharan Africa, the wildlife is incredibly diverse and nearly half the country is protected by conservation management. 'Namib' means "vast place" and fun fact, the dramatic deserts and endless salt plains have made the perfect backdrops for numerous movies, like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Flight of the Phoenix (2006) and Mad Max: Fury Road (2015).

More about South Africa

South Africa is a fascinating country full of contrasts, rich cultural heritage, imposing natural wonders and of course many of the most remarkable animals on earth. Table Mountain is a stunning backdrop to the city of Cape Town. The Western Cape boasts beautiful beaches and is prime wine growing country. Inland you'll find many impressive wildlife reserves, including Kruger National Park, famous for its wildlife viewing opportunities and being home to the 'Big Five' (leopard, lion, rhino, buffalo and elephant).

More about Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe, or officially the Republic of Zimbabwe, is bordered by South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique. It's gone through a resurgence in recent years, with stability returning to the landlocked country and gradual economic growth. Despite its rocky political past, Zimbabwe has invested in its natural heritage, with around 11% of the country declared parks and wildlife estates. The most renowned and largest is Hwange National Park, where you could be fortunate to see the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, buffalo, leopard and lion). Zimbabwe's biggest must-see attraction is thundering Victoria Falls on the Zambezi river, where the famous falls actually straddle the border with Zambia.
This ultimate African small group tour takes you from the impressive city of Cape Town, to the stunning Namib Desert, Botswana's Okavango Delta that's teeming with wildlife and thundering Victoria Falls, before visiting Zimbabwe's biggest game reserve and ending the journey in Johannesburg. Experience incredible animals in the wild, wonderful river trips, walking tours, wine tasting, game drives and more!

In Africa things work a little different to the rest of the World. Tipping or gratuity, unless otherwise specified, is not included in the price you pay for services delivered. This accounts for restaurant meals, casual help and the services of the guide or guides that you will meet on your tour.

In Southern and East Africa it is classified as a common courtesy to TIP “casual help (guides)”.

This TIP is not something that is forced upon you by any means, but in many industries of tourism it is customary. It works as follows: if you believe your guide has lived up to your expectations and has performed his/her job in a way that you respect and are happy with the services rendered, an amount of R 50 per person per day or equivalent in any major currency would constitute a fantastic tip. Remember that this is just a guideline and is not by any means compulsory, but seen as common courtesy in Africa.

Important to remember...

The day-by-day tour descriptions are intended as an indicative guide only. Travel by nature is unpredictable. Weather patterns, sea or river conditions, road accessibility, public holidays, travel restrictions and a multitude of other factors may necessitate itinerary changes that are ultimately for the client's benefit.
