Cape Town to Kenya

Day 1 – 6
Cape Town, Orange River, Fish River Canyon, Swakopmund

We begin our safari with a township tour in cosmopolitan Cape Town. We then travel north to camp beside the beautiful Orange (Gariep) River. In Namibia we enjoy awesome views over the dramatic Fish River Canyon and climb the world’s highest dunes in the Namib Naukluft Park. We relax for a few days and enjoy adventure activities on offer in the coastal town of Swakopmund – try skydiving, quad biking or just soak up the atmosphere in one of Swakopmund’s many fine cafes.

Day 7 – 12
Spitzkoppe, Etosha National Park, Kalahari Bushman

We continue through Damaraland and camp amongst the eerie rock formations at Spitzkoppe before arriving Etosha National Park to glimpse Namibia’s wildlife drinking at its year-round waterholes. Heading into Botswana we then take a cultural Bushman walk to learn about life in the Kalahari.

Day 13 – 15
Okavango Delta, Maun

We embark on an exciting wilderness experience amongst the tranquil islands and watery channels of the Okavango Delta. We travel on foot and by mokoro (dugout canoe) and stay at our tented camp for a night on one of the river islands. The Okavango is a very unspoilt area and spending time out amidst the wilderness and the rivers listening to sounds of the African night is an unforgettable experience!

Day 16 – 21
Elephant Sands, Nata, Chobe National Park, Livingstone

We drive to Elephant Sands, Nata en-route to the Chobe National Park and relax on a sunset Fish Eagle Cruise. We hope to see the African fish eagle and perhaps also elephant, hippo and buffalo coming to the river to drink. From Chobe we cross into Zambia and arrive at our camp on the banks of the Zambezi, near Livingstone. We visit Victoria Falls and take time out to enjoy Africa’s ‘Adventure Capital’. Optional activities here include white water rafting, bungy jumping, scenic flights and walking safaris

Day 22 – 34
South Luangwa, Lake Malawi, Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar

From Livingstone we drive north, via Lusaka to South Luangwa National Park and onto Lilongwe we reach Lake Malawi for a day or two on the beach. There’s also the opportunity to meet the Malawi people, some of the friendliest in Africa, on a village walk. Crossing the border into Tanzania we hit the coast, passing by the Mikumi National Park to the bustling capital Dar es Salaam. We cross by ferry to exotic Zanzibar, explore the intriguing alleyways of old Stone Town and relax on the northern beaches, enjoying the Indian Ocean at its best.

Day 35 – 41
Mt Kilimanjaro, Arusha, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Nairobi

Returning to ‘Dar’ we travel north to Tanzania’s safari capital, Arusha. On the way, weather permitting glimpse the snowy peak of magnificent Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. In Arusha, shop for curios, visit a snake park, and meet the people of a Maasai village. We switch to 4x4s for an optional excursion in the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. The Serengeti and Ngorongoro are two of the best game reserves in Africa and promise spectacular scenery, remote camping and plenty of exciting wildlife encounters. We return to Arusha before crossing into Kenya and finishing our journey in Nairobi, where our tour ends
