You begin this 14-day tour in Namibia’s capital where you connect with a flight to Little Kulala Camp within the Kulala Wilderness Reserve. Between 4x4 drives in the desert and visits to the towering sand dunes of the nearby Namib Naukluft National Park, enjoy relaxing in your thatch-and-wood suite while soaking up magnificent vistas of the harsh but striking landscape that God supposedly ‘made in anger’.
Your next destination is Damaraland Camp in the Torra Conservancy where rare desert-adapted elephant roam alongside a variety of antelope as well as lion and black rhino.
Then it is to the extreme north-west of the country where your stay-over is the remote Serra Cafema Camp nestled in a lush belt of riverine forest on the banks of the Kunene River. Enjoy guided hikes and quad bike rides through this unforgiving landscape and encounter an abundance of wildlife that relies on the gushing river for survival.
Then overnight at the plush Athol Place hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa, before your transfer to King’s Pool Camp located in Botswana’s private Linyanti Game Reserve. Expertly guided 4x4 game drives put you in touch with the Big 5 and two cleverly-positioned hides create the most superb photographic opportunities.
Next on your itinerary is Vumbura Plains, which borders Moremi Game Reserve in the north of the Okavango Delta. This lavish safari camp is raised on wooden platforms to offer splendid views of the lush Delta terrain as well as minimise the lodge’s environmental impact.
Spend the final leg of your Botswana adventure at Abu Camp on the edge of a permanent lagoon in a private concession of the Delta. Walk with the camp’s resident herd of habituated African elephants through the magnificent floodplains of this pristine environment. Aside from elephant walks, you can also get up-close to wildlife on 4x4 game drives, guided nature walks and in a mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) paddling through the glistening Delta waterways.
