A quality overland traverse through South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls). From the vast dunes of the Namibian desert, to the teeming animal life of Etosha, this itinerary traverses the greatest parks, rivers and landscapes that Africa’s south has to offer. Beginning in Cape Town we head north, passing through the Namaqualand region, and witness the Orange River plummet 56m over Augrabies Falls. We travel into the starkly beautiful Kalahari and spend two nights in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. At the extremities of the vast Namib Desert we marvel at Fish River Canyon, second largest in the world, and observe wildlife in Etosha National Park. Continuing our journey through the Caprivi Strip and via the Okavango River into Botswana, be part of unforgettable wildlife encounters in two of Africa's greatest sanctuaries in the wondrous Okavango Delta and along the Chobe River. The mighty Victoria Falls provide a sensational backdrop to a multitude of adventurous options and a fitting end to this amazing journey through southern Africa. Staying in a combination of small hotels, safari lodges and permanent safari camps full of character (and with ensuite facilities), this journey will appeal to those seeking a comfortable African travel experience.

“Recently returned from our 21 day tour, we would like to thank you at World Expeditions for facilitating such a wonderful holiday. The itinerary provided an excellent route of highlights from Cape Town to Victoria Falls, spending the majority of time in Namibia. Our guide Adam, was professional, organised and patient at all times. We enjoyed sensational landscapes and experiences: climbing the dunes at Sossusvlei, seeing one of the oldest plants in the world, meeting intriguing people like the Bushmen and Himba tribes and delighting in the birds and animals of Africa. We were accommodated in surprisingly varied and excellent places, oasis-like in the desert on occasion. This tour ticked all our boxes for a fascinating and memorable trip and the new app gave us the heads-up on the details for each day. We can't wait to book our next adventure.”
