The Zanzibar & The Cape tour starts in Zanzibar and ends in Cape Town. The Zanzibar & The Cape tour is an adventure tour that takes 42 days. You will travel through Kasane, Makgadikgadi Pans, Dar Es Salaam and 26 other destinations visiting Namibia, Tanzania and 5 more countries. This is a guided group tour. The tour includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A wonderful trip that connects Zanzibar and the Tanzanian Swahili Coast with the bustling city of Cape Town. This trip offers some of Africa's finest beaches from the white sands of Zanzibar, through to the shores of the beautiful Lake Malawi.

We visit some of Africa's best wildlife parks, such as South Luangwa, Chobe, Hwange and Etosha National Parks. But the two wildlife experiences, you will never forget, will be canoeing down through the Lower Zambezi region and walking with White Rhinos in Matobo National Park.

If you want spectacular scenery then this trip tops the bill and nowhere shows this more than the wonderful dune scapes of Namibia's Namib Desert and the vastness of the Fish River Canyon. If you are after wilderness, none is better that Botswana's incomparable Okavango Delta, which we will explore by dugout canoe. Finally, this journey has the greatest icon of them all, the incomparable Victoria Falls.

“Didn't expect the activities to be as good as they were, and they were well organized. The canoe trip, game drives, mokoro trip, etc were all verygood fun and the local guides were great.”

“Overall I am very impressed with how virtually every aspect of the trip was well thought out and planned. Health and security policies - like very frequent hand cleaning and sanitizing are a good example. This is no doubt due to your careful attention to years of experience. I realize external circumstances do change some plans. Really enjoyed the interpretive walks like the spice plantation in Zanzibar and forest walks in Okavango Delta, and the San village. The Great Falls of the Zambezi (aka. Victoria Falls). All the drives, cruises, and walks to see animals, especially in South Luwanga and Etosha parks. The great views of the planets and stars - especially stars never seen at home. The fabulous easily seen geology of Namibia.- dunes, pans, fossils canyons, layered, sharp or smoothly rounded peaks, vast plains. Also the rift valley with a great finger shaped Lake Malawi. The canoe and mokoro trips.
San rock-art and rhino hikes with a most excellent guide in Matobo Park. The great beobab trees. A camp very near the Orange River after 11 days of (beautiful) desert.”

Travel Insurance

Zanzibar & the Cape tour requires that you have adequate and valid travel insurance covering medical and personal accidents, including repatriation costs and emergency evacuation. We recommend using World Nomads' travel insurance.


For this Zanzibar & the Cape tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

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.
