A 13-day self-drive tour through Namibia and Zimbabwe starting in Windhoek and ending in Victoria Falls.

Tour Highlights:

Windhoek – Namibia’s capital city lies in a large valley surrounded by four mountain ranges, and provides a number of highlights for a safari through the region including the Alte Festung (otherwise known as the ‘old fortress’) and Christuskirche Church.

Okonjima Nature Reserve – Lying just south of Otjiwarongo in central Namibia, Okonjima Nature Reserve started out as a guest farm around 25 years ago. Now, the reserve is the home base of the AfriCat foundation and is well-known for its frequent cheetah and leopard sightings.

Etosha National Park – Translating to ‘place of dry water’ or ‘huge white area’, Etosha National Park consists largely of a vast, shallow salt pan defining a distinctive landscape, and features several waterholes that provide excellent game viewing opportunities, particularly during the dry season. The park is home to a variety of wildlife such as elephants, springbok, wildebeest, rhinos, impala, lions, cheetahs, jackals, hyenas and more.

Caprivi Strip – With incredible scenery and abundant wildlife, the Caprivi Strip bordered by the fertile Chobe River is a salient of Namibia without even a hint of desert wilderness. There are four reserves in the strip: the Mudumu, the Mamili, the Mahango and the Bwabwata – each of which are home to elephant, zebra, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, giraffe and more.

Chobe National Park – Located in northern Botswana, Chobe National Park is known as one of the best wildlife destinations in the world and is the second largest national park in the country. It is home to the largest concentration of elephants on the continent, as well as large numbers of predators and big game.

Victoria Falls – One of the most iconic waterfalls in the world, Victoria Falls is located on the border between western Zimbabwe and Zambia. Here is where the mighty Zambezi River plummets over a 1,708 metres (5,604 ft) wide cliff, and the resulting spray can be seen up to 15km away – a truly spectacular sight.
