Leaving Victoria Falls

After arriving in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, we spend the afternoon relaxing at the hotel before an evening visit to the Victoria Falls, or as the locals call it Mosi-oa-Tunya - "The Smoke That Thunders”. Day two at the falls is all about adventure, whether you want to take on the white water rafting, swim in the Devil’s Pool, take a flight of the Angels over the Falls.

We transfer to Kasane in Botswana where an evening boat ride before spending a day and night in the Chobe National Park. It is here that you will be “introduced” to your vehicle and we spend some time getting you comfortable with its capabilities and comforts.

From Chobe and Kasane we head south to close encounters with the magnificent giants of the African bush – the African Elephanand then deep into the Makgadikgadi Pans where the sunset and sunrise will make an indelible imprint in your minds eye.

After a couple of days at the Pans we head for Maun and the gateway to the Okavango Delta for a few amazing days and nights exploring the Delta. From boat rides to private islands, Mokoro rides to bird hides the Okavango puts on quite a spectacle.

Experiencing Namibia

After the waters of the Okavango we head east to Namibia and the beauty of the desert where we encounter the last remaining Bushmen tribe who will take us on a walk in their natural surrounds. No visit to Namibia is complete without exploring the Etosha National Park and we enter at the eastern gate before making our way to the Halali Camp where a waterhole presents an array of Africa’s creatures all through the day and night.

From Etosha we head North the the Kunene and Epupa Falls on the Kunene River where Namibia and Angola meet. The Koakaland is next and we spend a morning with the Nomadic Himba people who give true meaning to the term Living Of The Grid. Its here in the Koakaland that we expect to see the desert elephants and lions in their natural habitat.

The Skeleton Coast looms large ahead of us as we drive the great salt road, shipwrecks littered along the misty coastline, seal colonies of thousands and solitude as you have never experienced.

Our Path To South Africa

After a luxurious night in the Strand Hotel Swakopmund we enter the deep red sands of the Namib, the dunes at Sossusvlei and Deadvlei are glorious … a photographers dream destination. We continue South to Aus and spend a day exploring the Wild Horses of Namibia and Kolmanskop, the ghost mining town that is slowly being consumed by the Namib Desert … another photographers dream destination.

En Route to the Orange River and the South African Border we stop in at Ai Ais to wallow in the hot spings and rinse off the sands of the Namib desert.

After two days on the Orange River we head further south to the small towns along the way tp Cape Town, the fruit and wine farms are in abundance and we visit a few on the way. Before reaching the Mother City we head for the most southern tip of the African Continent L’Agulhus.

The Mother City welcomes us at the end of the expedition and the two days we spend there are filled with a myriad of experiences … stay a few days longer if you wish and we will gladly assist.

All the answers to your questions.

The short answer is no, our expedition begins on the tar and smooth gravel and slowly more adventurous routes are introduced to our clients. Drivers with no 4×4 experience will be more than comfortable to tackle the routes. The toughest driving will be in the sands of Sossusvlei and some single track slow driving through the Koakaveld.
