Tour Overview


Venturing into the back of beyond and through the stark beauty of untouched, barren wilderness in two unforgettable African destinations, we spend a large portion of our 19-day tour marvelling at a natural environment yet thankfully untamed by Man. Technicolour landscapes of pastel-basted rock formations, waves of taupe grasses and orange-pink clouds mark our route as we journey to one of the largest conservation areas on the planet in Namibia, where we have the chance to see kudus, springboks and black eagles set against some of the most expansive and dramatically rugged scenery in the world. Alone for miles and dwarfed by apricot-coloured sand dunes, we experience one of the high points of our tour, which can bring with it a profound, almost spiritual, effect on the senses. Through German colonial towns with eclectic mixes of Bavarian and Bohemian architecture, we travel through unexpected and surreal sceneries, and make our way to the Skeleton Coast, where we can take to the skies for an aerial view of seas of golden dunes, shipwrecks and perhaps the famous Damara desert-dwelling elephants. We see geological oddities, examine some of Africa's finest prehistoric rock art, paintings and engravings that date from over 5,000 years ago, and gaze at teeming wildlife at perhaps the best-kept secret of African safari destinations.

As we cross into Botswana, the marshlands of the Okavango Delta serve as the ideal location to view hippos and crocodiles in their natural habitat and thereafter it's on to what is arguably the most spectacularly beautiful game park in Southern Africa; Chobe National Park. The final days of our adventure deep in the heart of Africa are well-spent watching out for zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, antelope and, of course, elephants, cheetahs and lions, while we explore traditional and colonial villages, learn about the lives of indigenous peoples and take in the splendour of one of the natural world's most incredible sights in Zimbabwe; Victoria Falls.
