4 Overnight: Lodge in the Kalahari
(overnight | dinner | breakfast)

After breakfast, the journey continues through the Kalahari Desert. On the way you will discover gigantic sieve weavers' nests in ancient camel thorn acacias.
As you approach the lodge, endless linear dunes stretch across the limestone soil of the Kalahari. Oryx, springbok and smaller steenbok make wonderful animal motifs in the red dune sand. The Kalahari (also known as the Kgalagadi) is a thorn bush savannah, sometimes also a dry savannah, but is occasionally referred to as a desert due to the predominance of sand.
Once you have arrived at your lodge accommodation, you have some time to relax.
Optional activity: In the afternoon, guided sundowner drive in the red Kalahari dunes. The drive is conducted in an open and comfortable off-road vehicle with a lot of passion and without any hectic pace. It is a tour to get to know the Kalahari with unforgettable landscapes.

6 Overnight stay: Lodge in the Sossusvlei area
(dinner | overnight stay | breakfast)
Drive to Sesriem Park in the morning, because a dune landscape in the morning light offers an unforgettable landscape.

Catamaran cruise: Between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, on the rugged coast of the Atlantic Ocean, you will experience the unique nature and wildlife of the Walvis Bay lagoon on board a spacious and comfortable catamaran. The four-hour trip takes you from the harbor across the Walvis Bay oyster beds out to Pelican Point, home to a large colony of fur seals. The tour offers many highlights. Among other things, pelicans are hand-fed in flight. You will learn many interesting things about these animals.

Desert Tour: also called The Living Desert Tour, is a unique experience in 4WD vehicles that aims to introduce our visitors to the impressive beauty of the Namib Desert and showcase life in the desert. The coastal dune belt, which may seem barren and lifeless to some, is home to a fascinating variety of small animals that have adapted to the desert. They survive thanks to the fog that regularly rolls in from the cold Atlantic Ocean.

A unique opportunity to experience the desert up close.

9 Overnight: Lodge near Etosha National Park
(dinner | overnight stay | breakfast)
Today's drive takes you back into the interior of the country, through the picturesque Erongo Massif region, and further north to the immediate vicinity of the famous Etosha National Park. Here, just outside the central Andersson Gate, your accommodation is situated on a hill with picturesque views of the surrounding area.
10 Overnight: Lodge in the Etosha East area
(dinner | overnight | breakfast)

You leave the lodge this morning and drive into Etosha National Park at sunrise. This is a full day game drive in your own vehicle from the central to the eastern side.
Etosha National Park has a biodiversity that is hard to beat. A variety of animals gather at the different waterholes which can lead to a spectacular experience. Each individual waterhole has a unique character. For example, the Okondeka waterhole is one of the best for lion spotting. The predator can often be spotted here with prey. The waterhole is a natural spring and is situated just north of Okaukuejo on the western edge of the pan. Continue to the eastern side of the park where your next accommodation is located just outside the Von Lindequist Gate.

Overnight: Lodge on the eastern side of Etosha
(dinner | overnight stay | breakfast)
Today you have another opportunity to drive to various waterholes on the eastern side of the park in your rental car. Set off early to drive into the park as soon as the gates open. At one particular waterhole there is usually a leopard resting in the tree after its nightly hunt. Leave the park before sunset and drive back to your accommodation outside the park. 

The park is home to approximately 114 mammal species, 340 bird species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species and 1 fish species (up to 49 during floods). Etosha National Park holds the prestigious title of being the world's foremost patron of the black rhino and offers unparalleled opportunities for spectacular game viewing.


Overnight: Lodge in the Divundu area
(dinner | overnight stay | breakfast)

Today the route continues northwards to the Caprivi Strip. The drive takes you past many small primitive villages, via Rundu to Divundu. On the way you will pass the Popa Falls, which you can explore. However, the Popa Falls are not real waterfalls, but a series of several rapids. Not far from here, you will spend the next two nights in a lodge located directly on the banks of the Okavango River. 


Overnight: Lodge in the Divundu area
(Dinner | Overnight | Breakfast)
Today you spend on the banks of the Okavango River, and optionally we recommend that you either go on a game drive into the Buffalo National Park on your own or with the lodge, or consider a boat trip on the Okavango River. Alternatively, you can also take a trip to the nearby Mahango National Park. 

The Caprivi falls into the tropical climate zone and records high rainfall during the rainy season (December to March). With high temperatures, the weather is often hot and humid. The entire Western Caprivi is now a game reserve. In 2002, the former Mahango Game Park and the West Caprivi Game Park were merged to form the Bwabwata National Park. The park stretches between the Okavango and Kwando rivers and covers an area of over 5000 square kilometers. It is estimated that around 8000 elephants live in the area, as well as 1000 buffalo and many antelope species, hyenas, lions and leopards.


Overnight stay: Lodge on the Kwando River
(dinner | overnight stay | breakfast)
Continue your journey through the water-rich Caprivi Strip, which is now called Bwabwata National Park. Your accommodation is located on the Kwando River. An ideal place to relax and take in the natural surroundings.

At the very top, on its northern border, Namibia is not quite over yet. Squeezed between Zambia and Botswana, a gifted piece of land stretches eastwards to the Zambezi. It really is just a tip and that's why it's called the Caprivi tip.

Optional: Self-guided game drives in Mudumo National Park or a boat trip on the Kwando River. A guided bush walk is also an option, as is a fishing trip. In the western part of the Strip lies the Bwabwata National Park, an untouched wilderness with more than 400 bird species. A paradise for birdwatchers.

15 Overnight: Lodge on the Kwando River
(dinner | overnight stay | breakfast)
Today you have the opportunity to explore the Kwando area extensively. The lodge also offers optional activities such as game drives in Bwabwata Park in the morning or afternoon, as well as boat trips on the Kwando River. The Kwando River is a tributary of the Zambezi and forms the border between the eastern and western parts of the Caprivi Strip.

Overnight stay: Lodge near Chobe National Park
(dinner | overnight stay | breakfast)
Departure in the morning in the direction of Botswana. After approx. 200 km you reach the border crossing. Continue (approx. 70 km) through the Chobe National Park to Kasane. Here you return the rental car at the airport and then transfer to your accommodation in Kasane, which is located directly on the Chobe River.

The afternoon is at leisure. 


Overnight stay: On a houseboat
(full board & boat activities)
Optional: This morning you have the opportunity to go on an approximately three-hour game drive in an open off-road vehicle in Chobe National Park. Chobe National Park is not only an elephant mecca but is also home to huge herds of buffalo and Burchell's zebra and a high density of predators such as lions, spotted hyenas and cheetahs.

A transfer service will then take you to the Kasane Immigration Station. You travel upstream by boat transfer to a houseboat. You will already be on the houseboat for lunch. The following activities and excursions, depending on the weather, are included here during the next two days (examples: Excursion to a traditional village, bird watching, hike to the baobab tree on Impalila Island). 3 motorboats per houseboat allow flexible planning of water activities.

18 Overnight: On a houseboat
(full board & boat activities)
Today you can take part in the various activities from the houseboat. You will enjoy the extensive boat trips on the Chobe River. The river attracts many animals that come here to quench their thirst, especially in the afternoon. A unique opportunity to observe and photograph the wildlife from the boat. 

Overnight: Hotel in Victoria Falls
(bed | breakfast)
After breakfast, you will take the small boats back to Impalila Island, and back to Kasane where a representative of a transfer company will be waiting for you, and you will be taken to Victoria Falls by car transfer (approx. 90 km). Your accommodation is not far from the mighty Victoria Falls.

Optional: We recommend taking a tour to the famous Victoria Falls today. You can book this tour directly at the hotel on site. The waterfalls, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are the result of the mighty natural spectacle of the Zambezi River plunging 110 meters over a basalt cliff 1708 meters wide. The falls are one of the greatest natural wonders on our planet and fascinate everyone who sees the thundering spectacle with their own eyes.

The rest of the afternoon is at leisure and you can book further optional activities directly at the hotel.
