Namibia & Botswana
June 2020

Landscapes of outstanding beauty and some of the continent’s greatest concentration and diversity of wildlife make this tour through Namibia and Botswana an unforgettable journey!  Namibia houses the world’s driest eco-system on earth – the Namib Desert, granted World Heritage status in 2013. At Sossusvlei, you visit the sculptural sand dunes where the shapes shift with the wind and the colours alter with the light. Stay at Etosha, where nearly 150 mammal species can be found and spend time at the water holes which exert a magnetic pull on the big game herds. Flying by small plane into the Okavango gives a bird’s eye-view of this fan shaped inland delta with its mosaic of channels and islands. Get up close and personal with the wildlife at Moremi Crossing and Chobe.  Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is also included.  We have taken this tour many times and it has become a favourite.
