This trip incorporates the famous AfriCat foundation at Okonjima, the incredible Etosha National Park and also explores the Caprivi Strip, a relatively less travelled part of Namibia, that provides a fascinating contrast to the main tourist spots. Travelling through the Caprivi is a fantastic option for those seeking an Okavango Delta type experience, without paying premium Botswana prices. Ending the trip at the Victoria Falls adds another highlight to the journey.

Itinerary highlights

  • Get up close and personal to the big cats at the AfriCat Foundation at Okonjima.

  • Enjoy a big game safari in Etosha National Park.

  • View the wonderful riverine birdlife and wildlife of the Caprivi Strip bordering Botswana's Okavango Delta.

  • Visit the spectacular Victoria Falls and canoe along the Zambezi.
