The Southern Ethiopia, Gorillas & the Cape tour starts in Cape Town and ends in Addis Ababa. The Southern Ethiopia, Gorillas & the Cape is an adventure tour that takes 94 days taking you from Cape Town to Addis Ababa and through other destinations in Africa.

Journey from the tribes, mountains, forests and plains of East Africa to the wildlife parks and deserts of the south. Go in search of the Big Five as you visit some of the continents finest national parks including Etosha, Chobe, Samburu and Etosha.


You will truly get off the beaten track as you overland between Ethiopia and Kenya, enjoying a homestay with the Samburu people of northern Kenya. Further along the way you’ll meet mountain gorillas and chimpanzees in Uganda and elephants, lions, cheetahs and more in Tanzania and Kenya and again in Botswana and in Namibia. However, it's the raw experience of walking safaris to find white rhino in Zimbabwe and canoeing down Zambian rivers in the Lower Zambezi region that get you right up close to Africa's flora and fauna.


With a mixture of wildlife, hiking and other activities this trip will keep you enthralled as you work your way through the itinerary. Leaving lots of time to explore at your own pace we’ll get you away from the tourist trail and genuinely off the beaten track.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
