Discover Africa Like Never Before

We'll see some of Africa's greatest attractions through our self-drive, guided expeditions in Southern Africa

Sossusvlei

Deadvlei and the red dunes of the region are spectacular. This desert landscape is the most photographed aspect in Namibia.

As the setting sun sinks into the Atlantic Ocean it casts a glorious pallet that blesses both the amateur and professional photographer with the chance to capture their very own coffee table photos.

For the energetic amongst us it’s an opportunity to climb Dune 47, at 170m tall (and growing) this relatively 'easy' climb takes anywhere from 40 minutes to one hour to reach the top. For most people. coming down takes less than 5 minutes.

Etosha National Park

The park is considered a proper game reserve but due to the lack of rivers there are no buffalo, crocodiles or hippos neither are there any primates (other than us humans). The park makes up for it with large herds of elephants, numerous prides of lions, the elusive leopard and both white and black rhino.

Of particular interest is the waterhole at Halali Camp, famous for the plethora of visiting wildlife... including frequent visits by black rhinos, elephants and lions. Guests will be entranced with both the day and night activities at the waterhole. The vast flooded pans draw in huge numbers of water birds, including Greater and Lesser flamingos and Eastern White pelicans. The area also has one of the highest densities of giraffes.

The Pans of Etosha are white from lime and salt - they influence the entire region, dusting Etosha and its creatures in a ghostly white cloak. The solitude of a self-drive game drive is a special experience where you are your own ranger!

Kaokoland

Kaokoland is one of the last remaining true wilderness areas of Southern Africa. It is a world of incredible mountain scenery, a refuge for the desert dwelling elephant, black rhino, giraffe and home to the Himba people. We spend a morning with these nomadic people.

The rugged landscape is especially attractive during the early morning and late afternoon when it is transformed into softly glowing golden pastel shades.

Further north we drive through rugged mountains that are dissected by numerous watercourses. As we travel further north, the Otjihipa Mountains rise up from the Namib floor to form the eastern boundary of the Marienfluss.

The Cunene River that feeds generously through the Epupa Falls creates the natural border with Angola.

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.

Columns of spray can be seen from miles away as, at the height of the rainy season, more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge, over a width of nearly two kilometres, into a gorge over one hundred meters below.

Moremi Chobe

We make our way to Kwai in the Moremi Game Reserve. Moremi is one of the world’s top wildlife destinations and covers one third of the famous Okavango Delta.

From there we head to Savute in the Chobe National Park to see some amazing game, giant herds of buffalo, elephants and antelope.

Okavango Delta

A short drive from the town on Maun we come upon The Okavango Delta, a vast ecosystem, created as the Okavango River flows into the parched Kalahari Desert.

The land underpins the wonder of the Okavango Delta.
