Let us customise this sample itinerary to make your dream safari

Overview

This is the way to really get under Africa’s skin: a 17-day itinerary that commences in the continent’s ‘adventure capital’ – Victoria Falls – and ends with a comprehensive road-trip through the most exciting and bewitching areas of Namibia. In between, you savour the peace, tranquillity and majesty of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, one of the world’s greatest wildernesses.

You kick off in Livingstone at the Victoria Falls, a massive sheet of deafening spray on the Zambezi River. The Zambezi is a natural playground with sunset boat cruises, thrilling white-water rafting and microlighting all on offer. From there, you cross the border to Kasane in Botswana to catch a light aircraft flight to the Moremi Game Reserve on the Okavango Delta. Once again, water activities are a highlight: navigating the Delta by mekoro is a ‘must-do’ for any safari goer.

After getting your fill of Botswana, it is time to head to one of Africa’s best destinations for a road trip. Namibia has an excellent highway infrastructure, beautiful scenery and very little other traffic outside the few major towns – ideal for enjoying your time behind the wheel. You will take in Windhoek, Swakopmund, Sossusvlei, Damaraland and the country’s flagship nature reserve: Etosha National Park.

Ideal for a family vacation or even an intrepid honeymoon, this tour gives you the best of three of Africa’s most different and compelling landscapes.

Itinerary

Day to day

Unwind from the stresses of real life by immersing yourself in bliss of the Okavango Delta. A light aircraft will carry you from Maun in Botswana to the airstrip, where a driver will be waiting to take you to Xakanaxa Camp on the Khwai River. Xakanaxa is the Moremi Game Reserve and has one of the most unique features of all Botswana’s camps: an in-tent ‘misting system’ that cools you down in the heat of the afternoon. This is a very rare luxury and is ideal if you prefer to stay in your tent with a good book rather than laze at the swimming pool.

Although Moremi is a small reserve by Africa’s colossal standards, it is packed with jaw-dropping natural beauty and plenty of wildlife, especially endangered wild dogs, elephants, hippos, crocodiles and plenty of migratory bird species. As you are poled along the shimmering waterways in a mokoro, look for minute frogs among the reeds and enjoy the sight of delicate pastel waterlilies floating on the surface.
