Chobe National Park is the second largest in Botswana and is famous for its beautiful scenery, magnificent sunsets, abundance of wildlife (particularly its huge elephant population) and myriad of birdlife. The following day we relax on a game viewing cruise on the Chobe River where we have opportunity to get close to riverine creatures such as crocodiles and hippos. A morning game drive in Chobe National Park is included on day 3.

Continuing into the Caprivi we cross into Botswana and travel by road to our campsite on the edge of the Okavango Delta. The following day we do mokoro and boat excursions in the back channels of the Nxamasire area of the Delta. Game walks are also done on the smaller islands in the area subject to water levels of the delta.

Departing the Delta by boat we return to our vehicle and cross back into Namibia. We enter the Caprivi Strip (Zambezi Region) and travel to Rundu on the banks of the Kavango River. Our camp is set amongst the lush vegetation overlooking the Kavango River. Enjoy sunset on the deck or a swim in the famous “river pool”.

Etosha National Park is one of the most important reserves and game sanctuaries in Africa with thousands of wild animals such as blue wildebeest, springbok, zebra, kudu, giraffe, cheetah, leopard, lion and elephant making this area their home. Floodlit waterholes at Okakeujo & Namutoni Restcamps attract an abundance of animals throughout the evening, providing us with many amazing wildlife sightings. On Day 9 we enjoy early morning and late afternoon game drives (approx 150 kms drive/12 hrs including lunch). Overnight: In 2023 - Okakeujo & Namutoni Restcamps inside Etosha. In 2024 - Trading Post Campsite & Namutoni Restcamps inside Etosha.

We drive south through the Damaraland region with its vast and rugged terrain. Its mountain ranges are intercepted by wide gravel plains, which run into sandy, vegetated riverbeds and hot, dry valleys. We set up camp among the boulders of the Spitzkoppe Mountains. An afternoon walk is conducted in the surrounding area provides opportunity to stretch our legs and explore. The spectacular setting of our remote bushcamp is sure to leave a lasting impression.

We undertake a 5km walk to Sossusvlei and Deadvlei - starkly beautiful in a harsh environment.
