Day 1 Windhoek
On arrival at Windhoek Airport you will be met by your driver and driven to your guesthouse in the centre of town. This afternoon our representative will meet with you to answer any last minute questions you may have and your vehicle will be delivered whilst they're present.
Day 2 The Central Highlands
Today you will head up to the Central Highlands where you will be staying at Okonjima Plains Camp. It may be worth stopping off at one of the supermarkets in Windhoek to stock up on snacks and water for the journey. Whilst you are staying here you will have the opportunity to go on cheetah and leopard tracking drives. If you would like to head out on an afternoon activity I would recommend that you aim to arrive early afternoon.
Day 3 Etosha National Park
Today your journey continues to the eastern side of Etosha National Park. Here you will stay just outside the Von Lindequist gate for two nights at Mushara Bush Camp.
Day 4 Etosha National Park
Today you can either drive into the park yourselves or join one of the guides from Mushara and head into the park (payable locally) - with the expert eyes of your guide it is likely you will see more than if you were travelling on your own.
Day 5 Rundu
You will drive onwards into the Caprivi today - the road is good quality tarmac so you should be able to make fast progress. Hakusembe has a lovely riverside location just outside Rundu and you might like to take an evening boat cruise (payable locally).

Day 7 Popa Falls and Mahangu Game Park
Popa Falls and Mahangu Game Park

Waterberry Lodge is around forty minutes away from Victoria Falls, located on the banks of the Zambezi River. The location is perfect because you can escape the crowds around the falls and enjoy peaceful river cruises, as well as visit the falls. This afternoon you can head out on a sundowner boat cruise.
Day 13 Victoria Falls
