Namibia & Botswana Wanderer Victoria Falls - Cape Town

Trip Overview

Explore Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia with wildlife experiences and game viewing opportunities that are truly off the beaten track. Beautiful Zimbabwe has two of the pearls of Africa, Hwange and Matobo National Park. In Hwange we learn about the painted dogs (African wild dogs) and in Matobo we go on a walking safari in search of the White Rhino.

We visit Etosha National Park in Namibia, home to some of the largest elephants in Africa and the endangered black rhino. Namibia also offers spectacular and varied scenery; the dunes of the Namib Desert that stretch south from Swakopmund through to Sossusvlei, the barren mountains of Spitzkoppe and the unrivalled Fish River Canyon.

Sitting in between we have the highlight of the whole tour, the totally unique swamplands of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. We also visit the beautiful Chobe National Park by boat for more game viewing opportunities. All in all this is an amazing journey and you need 24 days to experience it all.

Reeds and lily pads line the streams, and birds startled by the mokoros rise out of the long grasses. Punting along, the peace may be shattered by the deep grunting of hippos.

We'll be camping out on an island in the middle of a wilderness area (at a permanent campsite with facilities). All food will be provided by our local hosts.

The next day we will explore the island on foot, and then take the mokoros out to a different island for more game walks, lunch, and then mokoro back to camp.

REVIEWS FROM OUR PASSENGERS

Enjoyed Etosha National park, Chobe national park, seeing Rhinos in Zimbabwe, seeing San people
Jacqueline L
An amazing way to see the country and make the most of your time there. The best thing about the trip was the itinerary being organised for you and not having to do any of the thinking! There were many highlights of the trip - Etosha National Park, Hwange, the Namibian desert and Deadvlei and wild camping at the base of Spitzkoppe.
Emma P
This is the second trip I've experienced with Dragoman both experiences have been very positive. Enjoyed most experiencing different landscapes and seeing animals. Especially in Etosha National Park.... a truly magical experience.
Patricia R
Enjoyed it all but Chobe was new to me and therefore most interesting. Hwange game drives very well run.
Sian N
What a blast !I enjoyed all of it !
Douglas R
This was my second trip with Dragoman and exceeded even my highest expectations. Tour leader was a fantastic leader and a true expert for exploring Africa - his knowledge of the ecosystem and animals often exceeded the guides and his enthusiasm was very motivating. There was many highlights but in general the level of accommodation was much higher than i had anticipated. Gweta lodge was one of my favorite campsites. The house boat on the Okavango was a great touch, plus the walking with rhinos was an unforgettable experience.

Pauline D
Had never done any travel Like this before and I have to say it was one of the best things I’ve ever done.

It was a great way to see countries properly. It was a busy trip which was good as it felt as if we were really experiencing our surroundings.
Wendy F
Okavango Delta was my favourite part, because we were really off the beaten track and immersed in the landscape. But I enjoyed all parts of the trip.
Wendy F
This was my third trip with Dragoman and all have been excellent. We had a good team with a good mix genders, nations, and ages. I particularly appreciate this having seen some of the other overland companies. Dragoman trips seem to have a good balance of fun and focus on the local culture and environment. You also seem to have the best (from what I've seen) truck set-up and trip culture.

Make it clearer in the pre-notes that it gets very cold on a night time/morning. Some of the group were under prepared and said they wished that was clearer in the notes.

Juergen did a wonderful job, couldn't be happier. Kept us informed all the time, and went out of his way to help when he could. Yves was also very helpful, and did a good job.

Charles is such an asset to Dragoman, we all loved his cooking, looked forward to it every day. He is a lovely man.

The cook Mash was awesome and a good guy to hang around.

Great guys to be with, thank you.

Our cook was more than a cook - a friend, an advisor, a tourist guide - caring and helpful.
Gordon D
The trip was well organised and worthwhile. The entire crew, Tanja, Andy and Samson where all excellent. The places we visited were interesting and the guides used were all helpful and knowledgable. Thank you.
Andrew D
The vehicle was great and the crew obviously look after Imani so well.

Samson - What a wonderful fellow! Always happy and provided us all with ample food and a good variety.

Samson was a great cook who included everyone in the cook groups and cleaning. He made some fantastic dishes but sadly only made the beef stroganoff once!
Andrew D
Fantastic cook. Helpful and always cheerful.

In Zimbabwe we had some excellent guides showing us around Hwange and Bulawayo. My group had Jordan and David who were both very knowledgable and knew their stuff.

I have nothing bad to say about either the leaders. They were kind, helpful, organised and professional all the way through.

Our co driver was a thorough gentleman and was always there to help those who were travelling alone.

Tanja and Andy were both amazing, they really made me feel welcome when I joined an already established group and helped me fit right in.

Brilliant itinerary. Very knowledgeable leaders. Comfy tents and easy to erect for novices like us! Amazingly good food and always plenty, lots veg and high quality meat. Hygiene regime in place.... very impressed. Lots of amazing experiences included, especially game drives. Possibility to upgrade at some campsites. Great to have a secure area so we did not have to worry about security of money/passports. The resident cook was a great asset. An amazing experience! So much better than we had anticipated.
