Country(s):

Small-group trans-African lodge fly-in safari through Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe, starting in Windhoek and ending in Victoria Falls – 15 days


Tour Highlights:

Windhoek – The capital city of Namibia is found almost right in the centre of the country, making it a perfect entry point for visitors. Impressively clean and calm, Windhoek is a great place to get your bearings before venturing further into Namibia. Beer lovers are in for a treat as there are many good breweries and German-style pubs to explore.

Sossusvlei – This desert area in Namibia consists of expansive salt and clay pans surrounded by some of the highest sand dunes in the world.The Sossusvlei Dunes are a highlight on any Namibian safari, and can measure up to a massive 300m! The older a dune in the Sossusvlei region, the brighter the red colour of the sand, ensuring that a sunrise or sunset spent in the viewing of these dunes makes for a magical memory!

Swakopmund – This is a coastal city in Namibia with a strong German heritage, it’s sandy beaches face the Atlantic Ocean. The city’s colonial landmarks include the Swakopmund lighthouse and the Mole (an old sea wall).

Okavango Delta – The unique system of waterways in Botswana is a large wetland area surrounded by the Kalahari Desert. Thousands of years ago, tectonic activity and faulting interrupted the flow of the river causing it to backup and form this unique ecosystem of waterways and countless islands. The Okavango Delta is both a permanent and seasonal home to hundreds of species of animals and birds.

Moremi Region: Described as one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Africa, the Moremi region boasts an incredible diversity of plant and animal life. Within its boundaries exists approximately 20% of the Delta and a vast range of habitats: acacia forests, floodplains, reed beds, lagoons, enduring wetland through mopane forest, and dry savanna woodland.

Makgadikgadi Pans – These pans have become a special Botswana safari ‘must-see’. As the rain arrives, herds of zebra, wildebeest and other antelope make their way northwards to the Nxai Pan and are followed closely by the migration of predators, such as lion, cheetah and hyena.

Chobe National Park – Chobe National Park is well known for the beautiful Savuti region, a definite highlight during a safari in Botswana. Visitors can experience one of many natural phenomena, such as witnessing one of the largest elephant herds in the world, or possibly the annual zebra migration.

Hwange National Park – Situated on the main road between Bulawayo and the world-famous Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park boasts a tremendous selection of wildlife and over 100 species of birds. Hwange carries 105 mammal species, including 19 large herbivores and eight large carnivores. The Big Five can all be found in Hwange, as well as many other predators.

Victoria Falls – Affectionately known as “the greatest known curtain of falling water”, Victoria Falls is truly a spectacular sight to see. Victoria Falls borders on Zambia and Zimbabwe, and can be viewed from vast distances from both sides. Columns of spray can be felt from miles away as 546 million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge of its cliffs.

Pre-tour Prep

Departure:

The Great Trans-African Lodge Safari departs from Terra Africa Guest House, Windhoek.

Please note that the daily departure times are a guideline only and are subject to change due to seasonal variations, as well as unforeseen circumstances. The final decision rests with your guide who will advise you at what time you will be departing each day.

On the evening of day 1, there will be a meeting presented by your guide, at 18h00, at your lodge. It is imperative that all clients attend this meeting so as not to miss out on any critical information.

Whilst it is our every intention to adhere to the above mentioned itinerary, there may on occasion be a necessity to make alterations in order to make the tour more enjoyable or practical.  Therefore please treat the itinerary as a guide only.


Transport:

Jenman African Safaris uses fully equipped Toyota Land Cruisers, Mercedes All-Terrain vehicle, 12-seater 4×4 safari vehicles or other appropriate vehicles with comfortable seating, large windows for game viewing, a music and PA system.We endeavor to ensure that air-conditioning is provided, however we are unable to guarantee this for vehicles travelling through Namibia. All luggage, besides hand luggage and photo equipment, is carried on the vehicle or trailer roof racks to ensure maximum comfort in the vehicle. Some game drives may be conducted in open-sided safari vehicles. For transfers between Kasane and Victoria Falls or Hwange and Victoria Falls (or vice versa), 2×4 vehicles may be utilised.


Travelling Time & Distances:

All travelling times are affected by road conditions, border crossings, detours and weather conditions, therefore on certain days travelling times may be longer than anticipated especially where there is a lot of distance to be covered. Please keep in mind that the time it takes to travel 100 km in your home country is not equivalent to the time it takes to travel 100 km on African roads, therefore we encourage you to sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery Africa has to offer. Where possible additional stops will be made to ensure your travelling comfort at all times.


Meals:

Where included most breakfasts and dinners will be enjoyed in the restaurants of the various accommodation establishments, however on certain nights the guide will provide an authentic meal for the group, which will be enjoyed together in the evening, often around a camp fire. Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in advance.


Visas:

The onus is on the client to organize all visas required to visit Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe prior to departure. Please note that travellers entering Botswana will be required to present a valid international health certificate of vaccination for yellow fever should they originate from or have travelled through countries which have been declared yellow fever infected areas within the preceding 6 months.


Travel Insurance:

Please note that travel and cancellation insurance is mandatory for every guest travelling with Jenman African Safaris. All insurance is solely the responsibility of our guests. Please ensure you arrange your own insurance with protection for the full duration of your journey to cover personal injury, damage and loss of personal items including but not limited to camera equipment and other electronic items, medical expenses, repatriation expenses and loss of luggage, etc. Please speak to your travel agent if you require assistance.
