You’ll have 14 magnificent days to explore, starting off with the bustling and sophisticated city of Cape Town, nestled between mountains, beaches and Winelands, admire the sunset at Fish River Canyon, journey over the Namib Desert with its splendid red dunes, go on safari in Etosha National Park and finish in one of the smallest and cleanest capital cities in the world, Windhoek where you can treat yourself to the famous locally brewed beer, the Windhoek Lager.

This tour gives you several nights of camping under the African sky and transport in an Adventure Overland Safari Vehicle (fitted with 20 Ultimate Safari Seats), which will ensure that you’ll get an unforgettable camping experience in Africa. With time to explore on your own and optional activities including hikes and skydiving, you’ll soak up the beauty and diversity of Southern Africa.
