Tour Plan

Situated in Central Namibia, the cosmopolitan city of Windhoek serves as the capital of the country. It is home to an international airport and a plethora of restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and accommodation options. The city is clean, safe and well-organised, with a colonial legacy that is reflected in its many German eateries and shops, and the widespread use of the German language. Windhoek has an interesting mix of historical architecture and modern buildings, many of which are worth a look, including the Alte Feste an old fort, the 1896 Christuskirche Christ Church, and the more contemporary Supreme Court.
Midway between the spectacular Etosha National Park and the capital city of Windhoek, lies the well-known Okonjima Nature Reserve. The 22 000 hectare nature reserve is home to AfriCAT, a carnivore sanctuary, which gives the captive cats a second chance to be released back into the wild and become completely independent hunters in a protected area right in the middle of commercial cattle farmland. Visitors can enjoy a stay at a variety of excellent accommodation options including everything from luxury villas to secluded camping. Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy thrilling cat-tracking guided safaris, leopard-spotting, off-road night drives and learn about local San culture along the Bushmen trail.
Situated in northwestern Namibia, the Etosha National Park offers a premier game viewing experience. The park’s diverse vegetation ranges from dense bush to open plains attracting a variety of wildlife. Located in the heart of the park is the Etosha Pan - a shallow depression that covers an area of 5000 square kilometres. Dry and shimmering for most of the year, the pans fill up with water after seasonal rains, making it the perfect habitat for wildlife. In the dry season, the wildlife is attracted to the perennial springs and waterholes that makes for excellent game viewing. Visitors can look forward to world-class game viewing including a variety of large mammals such as lion, elephant, leopard, rhino, zebra, giraffe, a diversity of birdlife such as flamingoes and pelicans.
Surrounded by Botswana, Angola and Namibia. Caprivi West forms part of the Caprivi strip that protrudes from the northeastern corner of Namibia. Acquired by the then German South West Africa in 1890, to provide access to the Zambezi River, Caprivi has been used as a point of politico-strategic military importance throughout history. Alongside a rich historical significance, Caprivi offers both a wealth of natural resources and serves as a haven for an abundance of wildlife, including the critically endangered African wild dog. The stips' vast and flourishing natural landscapes make it a popular corridor for African elephant moving from Botswana and Namibia into Angola, Zambia and Zimbabwe. In contrast, its lush, swampy terrains make it the only place in Namibia where one can spot the majestic Nile crocodile and the mighty hippo. Caprivi is a paradise for adventure seekers and nature lovers with free-roaming wildlife and postcard-perfect areas. Activities including game drives, walking safaris, canoeing and fishing on its serene waterways are plentiful. Birdwatchers will be overjoyed as they keep an eye out for the 400 bird species that soar above.
Situated on the northern edges of Namibia, East Caprivi or Itenge is situated in the corner of the Namibian panhandle known as the Caprivi Strip. This off-the-beaten-track destination is made up of vast floodplains, sparkling lakes and lush swamplands dotted with diverse wildlife and an array of bird species. Caprivi East is mostly river country, bounded by the Kwando, Zambezi, Linyanti, and Chobe rivers. The best time to spot a variety of game is the dry winter months of June to October when visitors can spot elephants, buffalo, hippo, zebra, kudu and impala, as well as crocodile, baboon and warthog. Caprivi East is an excellent destination for bird lovers to spot plovers, egrets, herons, and cranes.
The Chobe River forms the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park which is renowned for its diverse and abundant game viewing opportunities. This section of the park is best known for its dense concentration of wildlife, including elephant and hippo populations, but the waters attract all manner of game including large herds of buffalo and the lions that prey on them - a visit to the Chobe River Front guarantees close encounters with an array of African wildlife. Visitors can look forward to a range of exciting activities such as 4WD along the banks; motorboat cruises; and rare birdlife spotting. For a unique, luxury safari experience, hire a houseboat.
