Departing on Day 2 from the Breakwater Lodge at around 08h00 we take a winding route of the gleaming peninsula. Your tour of the peninsula takes you along the Atlantic coastline via Hout Bay and Chapman’s Peak to the Table Mountain National Park (Cape Point) – a National World Heritage Site. Here, you will have the chance to explore Cape Point before we return along the Indian Ocean coastline to the Waterfront Hotel.

Day 5 – 6: Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Namibia

We make our way north into the Kalahari and the incredible Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Spreading over 3.6 million hectares, this is one of the biggest reserves in Africa. Because of the minimal plant life in the region, spectacular predator sightings are frequent here, including that of the renowned black mane lion. We embark on a game drive to our lodge.

At our accommodation, you can discover the real gems of the Kalahari through Optional Activities such as a sunset pan drive or a Kalahari nature walk. Our nights are spent admiring the star-studded African sky by means of a telescope available on the viewing deck of our lodge.

Day 7 – 8: Fish River Canyon, Namibia

Departing the Kalahari area we make our way west, across the border into Namibia to our beautifully located lodge. The next morning we have time to unwind, and at midday we pay a visit to the incredible Fish River Canyon, the second biggest in the world and biggest in Africa. It is 160 kilometres in length, 27 kilometres in width and reaches depths of up to 550 metres. The Fish River is the longest interior river in Namibia and runs sporadically, typically flooding in the late summer.

Days 9 – 10: Sesriem, Namibia

Our travels carry us northward through changing surroundings to our lodging situated on the Namib Desert edge, thought by plenty of geologists to be one of the oldest deserts in the world. The next morning is an early start that takes us 55 kilometres through the dune belt whilst the sun rises above us. The spectacular transforming colours make for incredible photographic opportunities. We embark on a 5 kilometre trek to Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. The name Sossusvlei is of mixed origins and basically means ‘dead end marsh’. Sossusvlei gained this name due to the fact that it is a drainage basin without outflows for the ephemeral Tsauchab River. The pan holds rainwater to create a lake and because of the mass amounts of clay in the ground, water is retained for ages at a time.

Deadvlei is yet another clay pan, located approximately 2 kilometres from Sossusvlei. A distinctive characteristic of Deadvlei is that it was once an oasis with a couple of acacia trees. The pan is therefore peppered with blackened, dead acacia trees which are in stark contrast to the glimmering white of the salty pan floor as well as the vivid orange hues of the dunes. This forms an intriguing and captivating landscape that appears in countless photographs and that has been utilised as a location for films and videos.

In the afternoon we embark on a brief trek through the Sesriem Canyon, which is a natural canyon formed by the Tsauchab River in the local sedimentary rock, around a kilometre long and up to 30 metres in depth. A section of the canyon always holds water, which various animals make use of.

Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
Accommodation: Desert Camp (or similar accommodation)

Days 11 – 12: Swakopmund, Namibia

Today we journey to Walvis Bay to see the incredible gathering of flamingos. The wetlands of Walvis Bay include lagoons, mudflats, shoreline and salt works, which make up the single most significant coastal wetland in southern Africa for travelling birds. The wetland acts as a dry-season haven for migrating animals such as the Greater and Lesser flamingos, Plover, Grebe and African Black Oystercatcher.

We then reach Swakopmund in the afternoon, a charming coastal town with dominant German influence and with majority of its population German-speaking. Established in 1892 as the primary harbour for German South-West Africa, Swakopmund is German for ‘mout of the swakop’ as it is located at the Swakop River mouth. Our afternoon, as well as the next day, is spent exploring this beautiful town or participating in the myriad of Optional Activities available here, such as dolphin cruises or scenic flights over the enormous Namib Desert.

Meals: Breakfast
Accommodation: The Delight (or similar accommodation)

Day 13: Damaraland, Namibia

We depart from the coast today and make our way inland, through the Damaraland area. The name ‘Damaraland’ was given to the north-central portion of Namibia and inhabited by the Damara people, an ethnic group that forms 8.5% of the population in Namibia. The area is an enormous and jagged landscape with mountain ranges interrupted by broad gravel plains which transform into sandy, vegetated riverbeds and hot, arid valleys.

Our lodge is located on a mountain summit that gives incredible vistas of the encircling regions. Spend your afternoon basking in the glory of our surroundings, or just unwind next to the pool.

Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
Accommodation: Ugab Terrace Lodge (or similar accommodation)

Accommodation: Okakeujo Restcamp  (or similar accommodation)

Day 15: Etosha National Park, Namibia

In 1907, when Namibia was referred to as ‘South West Africa’, the Park’s initial 100,000 square kilometres made it the world’s biggest game reserve. The Park is one of the most crucial reserves and game havens in Africa, and is home to countless wildlife including the likes of blue wildebeest, springbok, zebra, kudu, giraffe, cheetah, leopard, lion and elephant. Our day is spent game driving through the reserve from west to east.

Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
Accommodation: Okakeujo Restcamp (or similar accommodation)

Day 16: Kavango, Namibia

Departing from Etosha we make our way into the Caprivi where we overnight amongst the trees and foliage of this region. The Caprivi Strip is a thin protrusion of Namibia in the east that is around 450 kilometres long, between Botswana in the south, Angola and Zambia in the north, and the Okavango area to the west.

In the afternoon you can partake in an optional boat cruise along the sparkling Okavango River. It is the fourth longest river network in southern Africa, flowing south-eastward for about 1,600 kilometres. It starts in Angola, where it is called the Cubango River. Further south it creates part of the border that divides Angola and Namibia, and then runs into Botswana, emptying into the Moremi Game Reserve.
