The 20-day Cape Town to Victoria Falls route is a comprehensive tour where you cross from South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and wrapping up the tour in Zimbabwe. It is a simply grand safari!. This is an 'accommodated' tour, staying in hotels and lodges rather than camping.
As we leave Cape Town we go into a northern direction towards the Cederberg Mountain Region en route Namibia. As we cross the border, our first stop in Namibia is the Fish River Canyon where we hike along the rim of this large natural phenomenon. Next the Namib- Naukluft Park which is 50,000km2, and one of the largest parks in Africa. It is here in the Sossusvlei desert where you will find giant sand dunes and remarkable, ever changing landscapes.
In Swakopmund we stop to enjoy skydiving, sandboard, quad biking to name a few adventure sports. We then continue to the Etosha National Park for some abundant wildlife viewing in Southern Africa’s finest game reserve. We get to spot plenty of wildlife before continuing to Namibia’s capital of Windhoek. A short city tour makes way for crossing to Botswana. Our first visit here is Ghanzi to experience a cultural evening of tribal singing and dancing performed by the San community. Next we explore the Okavango Delta, which is the largest inland delta in the world. The lagoons, lakes, hidden channels and watermasses cover over 17,000km2 and we will be exploring as much of this in cruises on traditional Mokoro’s sailboats. An upgrade is available to fly in to a water based lodge inside the Delta for a more in depth experience. We also visit the second largest wildlife reserve in Botswana. Here in the Chobe National Park we wrap up sightseeing and head over to the border where we find ourselves in Zimbabwe. This is our final destination and what better way to end a 20-day tour than to stand in the mist of the Victoria Falls – the crossroads of Africa.
The tour is available either based mainly on camping in traditional 2-person tents (which we provide together with camp beds), or as an upgraded 'accommodated' version where you sleep in lodges, hotels, or permanent camps (with proper beds & facilities). Details of each night's stay are given in the Facilities section of the daily itinerary. Pricing shown is based on camping - please contact us for prices to upgrade to the accommodated level.
