Visit some of Namibia’s finest national parks, as well as stops in Botswana and Zimbabwe, to follow herds of elephant and enjoy the rich diversity of wildlife.

The tour begins in Windhoek, with an overnight stay to relax after the flight, before venturing into the wild Namib Desert. Enjoy exploring Sossusvlei and Naukluft National Park to observe the unique wildlife, including the rare and elusive aardvark. With guaranteed clear nights, star-gazing here is superb, and is considered to be the finest star-gazing spots in southern Africa. 

The tour continues north to Swakopmund, for a chance to see the spectacular sand dunes of the Skeleton Coast, before heading to Damaraland. Here, there is a chance to look for the rare and endangered desert elephant, as well as black rhino, gemsbok, kudu and springbok. Before leaving Namibia, visit the famous Etosha National Park, one of Africa's largest protected areas..

Crossing into Botswana, two nights are spent exploring the waterways of the magnificent Okavango Delta, where island accommodation provides numerous opportunities to explore by mokoro (traditional boat). Return to Namibia, for a night in the Caprivi to visit the Zambezi's tributaries, before travelling back to Botswana, into Chobe National Park. This park is home to one of the highest concentrations of wildlife found on the African continent, and you will spend an afternoon here on the Chobe River.

The last stop of the tour is the spectacular Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, with opportunities to view the falls, go birdwatching in the nearby forest, or relax by the pool following an adventure-filled tour of southern Africa.
