Foreign Travel Advice

Explore Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia with wildlife experiences and game viewing opportunities that are truly off the beaten track. Beautiful Zimbabwe has two of the pearls of Africa, Hwange and Matobo NP. In Hwange we learn about the painted dogs (African wild dogs) and in Matobo we go on a walking safari in search of the White Rhino. We visit Etosha NP in Namibia, home to some of the largest elephants in Africa and the endangered black rhino. Namibia also offers spectacular and varied scenery; the dunes of the Namib Desert that stretch south from Swakopmund through to Sossusvlei, the barren mountains of Spitzkoppe and the unrivalled Fish River Canyon. Sitting in between we have the highlight of the whole tour, the totally unique swamplands of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. We also visit the beautiful Chobe NP by boat for more game viewing opportunities. All in all this is an amazing journey and you need 24 days to experience it all.

An excellent trip where we really take the time to explore. Plenty of 2-night stays to explore properly, excellent campsites and upgrades available, with some off-the-beaten track nights of wild camping. Great wildlife, scenery and beauty. An easy-going yet every day is different sort of trip.
