The tour in short

This tour is particularly suitable for those who would like to experience Namibia but who also dream of the absolute classic South Africa experiences, including Big 5 safaris and big city experiences in Cape Town. Fortunately, you don’t have to choose – on this tour, you get it all!

The tour starts in Cape Town, South Africa’s second largest city. It is one of Africa’s most western cities, offering a wide range of experiences. It is also the perfect introduction to the multicultural country that South Africa is.

After Cape Town, you can look forward to Namibia’s magnificent scenery, which is some of the most unique in the world. You will find far-reaching skies and almost no people here. The landscapes here take the breath away of even the most seasoned travellers, and one of the world’s oldest deserts is also found here. You’ll experience it all in the company of a small, international group and a skilled local guide.

The wildlife experiences you enjoy on this tour are in South Africa, where you will go on safari looking for the Big 5 in both the world famous Kruger National Park and a private game reserve.

It is possible to extend the tour to include exotic Mauritius or perhaps a tour to Botswana.

Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Departure from the UK

Today you depart by plane from the UK to Cape Town with connecting flight(s) along the way.

Day 2: Arrival in Cape Town

On your arrival in Cape Town, you will be met at the airport and driven to your hotel, where you will spend four nights.

Days 3-5: Cape Town

The days you spend in Cape Town are at your leisure, and there is plenty to see and do here.

A stroll along the famous Waterfront is not to be missed. The area still serves as a regular port, with the addition of tourists, shops, entertainment, restaurants and all manner of other activities.

A visit to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, is also on many people’s wish lists.

A trip to Cape Point is also a great day out. You will see the stunning coastlines and landscapes around Cape Town and feel the strong wind from the South Pole at Cape Point itself. If you’re into good food and wine, you certainly won’t be disappointed in Cape Town. If you’d like an introduction to the famous Cape Malay cuisine, our excursion including culinary experiences in the colourful Bo Kaap neighbourhood may be just the thing for you.

Places are limited on a number of excursions, so if there are any experiences you KNOW you would like to go on, we recommend that you book them from home.

One thing is for sure: you won’t get bored in Cape Town!

Day 6: Cape Town – Swakopmund

You are picked up at your hotel and driven to the airport, from which you fly to Swakopmund in Namibia. Here, you will be met and driven to your hotel, where you will spend two nights. The rest of the day is yours to do as you please.

It can feel like a huge contrast to travel from Cape Town’s multi-ethnic, multicultural environment to the clean lines of Swakopmund. Swakopmund is often said to be one of the best-preserved examples of German colonial architecture in the world. Here, you will find wide streets and far-reaching skies.

Accommodation:
Day 7: Swakopmund

The day is yours to do whatever you please, but we recommend that you explore the history and architecture of the city.

Finding your way around Swakopmund is easy, so you don’t need a guide. If you fancy venturing a little further out of town to the incredible dune landscape, or if you’d like to try your hand at a quad biking in the desert landscape, an organised excursion is necessary. Your guide can help you on your way!

Accommodation:
Day 8: Swakopmund – Sossusvlei

The drive alone from Swakopmund to Sossusvlei is one of the highlights of your visit to Namibia.

The scenic Gaub Pass offers fantastic scenery where most people have to pinch themselves. With a little luck, you’ll spot the mountain zebras, which live in the area. They are the smallest of three zebra species.

You will also pass the Tropic of Capricorn, which is the southernmost latitude where the sun can be directly above your head. The northernmost circle of latitude at which the sun can be directly overhead is the Tropic of Cancer, which runs through Egypt, for example.

The small town of Solitaire is named after its isolated location. It was named by the wife of a sheep farmer. Her husband bought the land in 1948 to breed sheep here – and you can pretty much figure out the wife’s reaction when you know she was the one who named the sheep farm…

Late afternoon, you reach your actual goal of the day: Sossusvlei, where you check in at your lodge. There’s time for an afternoon excursion if you feel like it.

Please note: For departures on 6 August and 17 August 2021, you will stay at Tsauchab River Camp on instead of A Little Sossus Lodge.

Day 9: Experiences in Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon

Dune 45 is probably one of the world’s most famous sand dunes. Located in Sossusvlei, its name comes from the fact that it is 45 km after Sesriem on the road to Sossusvlei. It is probably also one of the most photographed sand dunes in the world, simply because it is so perfectly shaped and so easily accessible.

Of course, you, too, get the chance to photograph Dune 45. But the real highlight of the day is the colours. The earthy reds and oranges, which are a stark contrast to a bright blue sky. This is how Namibia is usually depicted.

Sesriem Canyon is also on the itinerary today. The canyon was created by the Tsauchab River flowing through it for millions of years. There is only water in the river when it rains in the Naukluft Mountains. The earth cannot absorb the large volumes of water quickly enough, and so-called flash floods occur, where large volumes of water are forced through the canyon in a short space of time – and this is what has created the canyon’s distinctive formations.

You’ll be back at the lodge late afternoon, when you can enjoy the pool or take part in some of the lodge’s activities.

Please note: For departures on 6 August and 17 August 2021, you will stay at Tsauchab River Camp on instead of A Little Sossus Lodge.

Day 10: Sossusvlei – Windhoek

You set off early today to Namibia’s capital, Windhoek, giving you the afternoon in the city.

Windhoek is the largest city in the country, as the selection of restaurants and shops shows. It is a modern city with a clear architectural influence from the German colonial era.

Accommodation:
Day 11: Windhoek – Johannesburg – Bongani Mountain Lodge

You are picked up at your hotel and driven to the airport, from which you fly to Johannesburg in South Africa. You will be met here and driven to your hotel.

The afternoon is yours to do as you please. We recommend a “sundowner” when the sun goes down – perhaps you’ll get your first glimpse of wildlife here, as the view from the lodge is absolutely phenomenal.

Accommodation:
Day 12: Safari in Kruger National Park

Where Namibia offers magnificent landscapes, Kruger offers magnificent wildlife experiences. The whole day today is devoted to safari in one of the world’s most famous national parks.

You will leave the lodge early in the morning and you will not be back until late in the day. What the day has in store for you is impossible to say – and that’s what makes safari so fascinating! The feeling of being there where the animals live is absolutely overwhelming. Impalas, buffaloes, giraffes and elephants emerge from the bush and disappear again. There are storks, eagles and vultures, crocodiles, hippos – and lions. There is no guarantee of seeing the Big 5, but the chances are really high. You might like to bring a pair of binoculars with you from home, so you can help keep an eye out. In the middle of the day, there is a lunch break at one of the many camp sites found in the park. There is a small café here where you can buy food and drinks and maybe a snack or two.

At the end of the day, you will return to the lodge and enjoy a good dinner.

Accommodation:
Day 13: Safari at Mthethomusha Game Reserve

Today is all about safari again – this time in the game reserve you are in.

You leave the lodge before sunrise. Remember to wrap up warm! It’s cold in Africa at night before the sun rises. It’s a very special feeling, sitting safely in the comfort of the car, knowing that there are lions around you on their way home from the night’s hunt, and that elephants are on their way to the watering hole for a morning dip. The sun soon rises, and you can see the first outlines of the wild animals. What you will see, nobody knows. This is precisely why a game drive gives even the most seasoned safari guests butterflies in their stomach!

When the sun is so hot that the animals become lazy, it’s time to head back to the lodge, where a lavish brunch and good chat about the morning’s experiences await. Do as the animals do and take a nap or enjoy refreshing swim in the pool.

The rest of the day is yours to do as you please. The view from the lodge is amazing, so you might just want to relax and enjoy it. It’s also possible to have a massage after all those hours in the safari car.

Accommodation:
Day 14: Bongani Mountain Lodge – Departure day

You will leave the hotel in good time today, when you will be driven to the airport from which your journey home begins.

Day 15: Arrival back home

You land in the UK after an exciting and eventful holiday.

Beach holiday in Mauritius, 5 nights

The tropical island of Mauritius is one of the most exclusive and fascinating islands in the Indian Ocean. With its delightful climate and friendly population, this little slice of paradise is the perfect setting for an exotic holiday. The island is typically associated with relaxation and romance, but it is also ideal for everyone who loves gastronomic treats, water sports and beautiful countryside. Mauritius is ringed with beautiful beaches lined with swaying palm trees, crystal clear water and brightly coloured coral reefs. The landscape features lush forests, fields of sugar cane, tall mountains, roaring waterfalls and dramatic stretches of coast dotted with small lagoons. The capital, Port Louis, is home to a variety of fine shops and fascinating museums.

The days on Mauritius are yours to do with as you wish.

The stay includes half board.

Elephant experiences in Chobe National Park, 3 nights

For an elephant guarantee, head to Chobe National Park in Botswana. Here you will find the largest concentration of elephants on the entire African continent. At least 50,000 elephants live here – some say there are as many as 120,000. You can also see large flocks of buffalo, gnus, zebras, antelopes, lions, hippos, crocodiles and rich bird life including storks, bee-eaters and vultures. You can often see hyenas, leopards or rare wild dogs too. It is not without reason that Botswana was named the best safari country in all of Africa!

Chobe National Park offers unique and varied safari experiences with both traditional game drives and countless activities on the life-giving Chobe river.

This 4-day safari extension to Chobe offers the best of both worlds on land and on water, and we have even added a spare day to the programme, for which you can purchase tours such as a trip to the mighty Victoria Falls, an extra river boat trip, or several game drives. A unique opportunity to experience Botswana, now that you’ve come all the way to Africa!
