Journey from Windhoek, Namibia which is one of the smallest and cleanest capital cities in the world through Botswana, Zimbabwe, and to Johannesburg. You can dance with the San (bushmen), do a mokoro excursion in the Okavango Delta, discover wildlife in Chobe National Park, and soak up the incredible views of Victoria Falls, continuing to the splendid Matobo National Park, and then ending with an overnight in Johannesburg which forms the grand finale to this fantastic tour.
You will be provided 13 nights of accommodation on this safari.
This tour offers 13 nights of camping under the African sky, as well as transport in an adventure overland safari vehicle (fitted with 20 Ultimate Safari Seats), which will ensure that you get an unforgettable camping experience in Africa. With time to explore on your own and a marvelous choice of included and optional activities to do, you will experience the beauty and diversity of Southern Africa.
When you arrive in Windhoek, you will make your way to the joining hotel. As an added service to travelers, your arrival airport transfer is included. You will walk out of the international arrivals area and look for a transfer person holding an Africa4us sign and your name. Ask him or her what hotel he or she will take you to (do not volunteer this information). Then present your passport for proof of identity.
The tour departs on Day 2 in the morning. A brief departure meeting will be held in the hotel reception area in evening on Day 1 of your tour at 06:00 p.m. Upon arrival, the reception will provide information from your tour leader regarding the meeting place and time.
Explore Windhoek during the day and meet your group and your tour leader in the evening at 18:00 to get acquainted and review your trip details. Windhoek is a tiny capital town but with loads of interesting things to offer. One of the most famous is the display of 33 meteorites, the Gibeon Meteorites in the Post Street Mall.
Here, you can take pictures of and touch these extra-terrestrial bodies that are corrosive resistant due to the high amount of nickel in them. Shopping opportunities abound and for the historically inclined, there are many museums and historical buildings within walking distance in the town center.
One of the most widely photographed and a historical landmark is the Christ Church, a Lutheran church, built in the Gothic revival style.
Depart Windhoek early for a long drive through the eastern part of Namibia, crossing the border into Botswana and travelling into the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Ghanzi is the area where San (Bushmen) live who still have the knowledge of an ancient lifestyle and who are eager to welcome visitors into their almost forgotten world. In the evening, you can enjoy an optional ancient dance ritual performed around a campfire by the San and if the night is clear, enjoy the sparkling, starry skies for which Ghanzi is famous.
You will enjoy an optional morning walk with the San (bushmen) as they display their survival skills that have been passed on from generation to generation before departing Ghanzi. You will arrive in Maun, Botswana's fifth largest town, after lunchtime.
Once you arrive in Maun, you will have the option to get a spectacular birds-eye view of the Okavango Delta from above in a small fixed wing aircraft (weather permitting). Looking down on the Delta from the aircraft, you will get a fair idea of the magnitude of this massive mix of land and water with its intricate system of channels and islands.
You might also see families of elephant, giraffe, and herds of buffalo or even hippos from the air. If you skip the flight, you will have the chance to kick back and relax at the campsite.
On this day you will experience a new way of travelling into the Okavango Delta with a mokoro, the same way as the local people do. You will be transferred to the “polling” station either with a motorized boat or a 4x4 vehicle depending on the water levels of the Delta.
A mokoro is a traditional dug-out canoe that seats two people. The mokoro is steered by a “poler” standing at the back, maneuvering the mokoro downstream with a pole, very much like the gondoliers in Venice.
Once you are comfortable and laid back in your mokoro, the slow and tranquil journey into The Delta begins. Gliding along on the quiet water, you will have an unlimited source of opportunities to take exquisite photos of your surroundings. The duration of the mokoro trail depends on the time of year and water levels of the Delta.
You will stop for lunch at an island and enjoy a nature walk of a few hours. Then you will head back to Maun, again in your mokoro, enjoying the last hour or two on the water while the late afternoon sun starts heading for the horizon.
Set out for Elephant Sands, which is close to the Botswanan village of Nata. Elephant Sands is famous for its watering hole, voted as one of the top ten watering holes in Africa.
At this watering hole, you can expect to see animals such as wild dogs, different antelope species, and of course, elephants that walk through the campsite searching for fresh water. This will most certainly be the closest you will get to these wild animals on foot.
You will continue to the small town of Kasane, which is adjacent to the Chobe National Park and Chobe River. Relish the views during your included afternoon sunset boat cruise. Take your own sundowner with you as you look for wildlife on the banks of the Chobe River.
Game such as elephant, buffalo, kudu, bushbuck, hippo, giraffe, and sable are commonly seen along the river edge, and it is a birdwatcher’s paradise during the summer months. You have an opportunity to go on an optional photo safari at your own expense, however, you would forfeit the included afternoon sunset boat cruise.
You will cross into Zimbabwe and enjoy a short drive to the magnificent Victoria Falls and its charming small town. This is your home base for the next two nights. The Victoria Falls is not the widest or highest falls but is regarded as the world's biggest. It produces a breath-taking curtain of falling water as it drops into the gorge below.
See why it is considered among one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. On this day, you will have time to do some of the action-filled activities that the area offers. Bungee jump or gorge swing off the Victoria Falls Bridge that links Zambia and Zimbabwe and have a different view of the Victoria Falls at the same time.
This bridge is constructed to carry railway, road, and foot traffic. For an adrenaline-filled activity closer to the Zambezi River, choose a half day or full day white water rafting adventure.
On this day, you will have time to do some of the action-filled activities that the area offers.
After breakfast, you will continue to Gwango situated just outside Hwange National Park, named after a local chief. This park is the largest park in Zimbabwe occupying roughly 14,650 square kilometers. Look forward to an included afternoon open vehicle game drive on the Estate.
After dinner, you can go on an optional night game drive in the estate which will give you the opportunity to discover nocturnal animals such as porcupines, civet cats, genet, and leopard.
You will head south towards Matobo National Park, which is at the Matobo or Matopos Hills, a scenic area of granite kopjes and wooded valleys. You will stay overnight at Big Cave Camp, in preparation for a full day of activities.
Enjoy a day filled with the best that Matobo National Park offers, a guided rhino walk, and game drive bring you as close as possible with these ancient looking giants. Visitors to Matobo National Park regularly spot white and black rhino, sable antelope, and impala, among other wildlife. You will return to Big Cave Camp after your exciting day and enjoy a sundowner while watching another spectacular African sunset.
You will cross the Zimbabwe and South Africa border and overnight at the Bolayi Game Lodge. The Lodge is set in the Limpopo Valley, in the heart of the world`s largest concentration of Baobab trees, surrounded by fascinating granite outcrops in pristine bushveld vegetation.
The last night is spent in Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city, also known as Egoli, or The City of Gold, referring to the gold mining history of this fast-paced city. Book a day or two post tour to explore the city.
A visit to Gold Reef City, the amusement park and museum built on an old mine shaft will give you the opportunity for a ride on the Shaft of Terror, a vertical-drop roller coaster that is known as the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Africa due to its sheer 47-metre drop. For the historically inclined, there is the ever-popular Soweto tour or just jump on a Hop-On-Hop-Off bus to discover Johannesburg at your own pace. Tonight, you can dine in one of the many excellent restaurants the city offers.
You will have a healthy breakfast, and this marks the end of another incredible tour.
