Etosha, Chobe & Vic Falls

This is one of our most popular safaris. It provides a great combination of some of Southern Africa’s biggest attractions. We will start in Windhoek and after a four day visit to Etosha National Park which is Namibia’s and one of Africa’s biggest and best known parks, we will continue up to the Caprivi Strip of Namibia. Here we will explore the lesser known Bwabwata and Mahango National Parks as well as the big rivers in the Caprivi, the Okavango, Kwando and Zambezi Rivers. Finally, we will move on to Chobe National Park in Botswana and finish off in Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. We will do lots of game drives and boat cruises and stay in top quality lodges along the way. We can extend this safari to include Sossusvlei and Damaraland in Namibia as well as the rest of Botswana and/or Zambia.

DAY 1

Etosha National Park

After breakfast we will depart for Etosha National Park where will spend the next 4 nights. Etosha is one of Africa’s biggest and best National Parks and one of the main tourist attractions in Namibia. It is 22 912 km 2 in size of which the Etosha Pan, a shallow depression that only holds water after good rainy seasons, is 5000 km 2 in size. Etosha is known for its spectacular game viewing and the waterholes attract huge numbers of game in the dry season when all the open water has dried up. During the rainy season in the park the dry grassland is transformed into a green oasis and this is the time you find young of various animal species in huge numbers. 114 Species of mammal are found in the park and it is the best place in the world to see Black Rhino. Other game include elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, honey-badger, black-faced impala, kudu, eland, damara dik-dik, warthog and big herds of springbok, zebra, blue wildebeest, red hartebeest and oryx. More than 300 species of birds are found here and it is brilliant for finding raptors. One of the highlights of the park is flood-lit waterholes at the 3 main camps where game viewing continues long after the sun has set. Read more

You will cross over into Botswana at the Ngoma gate which is one of the most scenic border posts overlooking the Chobe River floodplain. The last 60 km of this road takes us right through Chobe National Park and after settling in at your lodge in Kasane you will enjoy a sun-downer drink while enjoying the great view over the Chobe River. Kasane is a small town bordering Chobe National Park and is the perfect base from which to explore this park. It is not uncommon to see wildlife in and around town. Read more

DAY 9

Chobe River Front

This whole day will be dedicated to explore Chobe National Park. You will do a game drive and a boat cruise and the time of the year will determine which one you do first. Chobe has the highest concentration of elephants in the world as well as one of the highest wildlife concentrations on earth. Besides all the elephants you will also try and find buffalo, sable, wild dog, puku (southernmost limit of its range), lechwe, lion, leopard, hippo, crocodile, bushbuck, waterbuck, giraffe and huge zebra herds. Elephants crossing, playing or swimming in the Chobe River is a sight you will never forget. You will again stay in the same lodge overlooking the Chobe River. Read more

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

It is one of the most beautiful and most majestic waterfalls in the world and it is not difficult to see why the Victoria Falls are one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.

Leah, United States

Our small group had the good fortune to go on two safaris with Nature Travel Namibia in August, 2013. Prior to our arrival, the email communication was very informative and professional. We basically just showed up, and every last detail was attended to. ​ ​ Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and fun. He went above and beyond to make sure we had an unforgettable experience. We travelled comfortably in a small van, our accommodations were clean and pleasant, and the meals were delicious. But most of all, we had the benefit of being in a small group, guided by a true expert, and therefore had the most magnificent wildlife viewings. What a gift. Read more

Our trip was packed full of adventure, fun and record numbers of mammals including: Caracal! African cat, and all the big game; Lions, (many sightings, great photos) Rhino, Elephants, Hippos, leopard, and much more. We had 350 species of birds including Pell's fishing owl! Our guide Nick was very attentive, thoughtful of our comfort and desires throughout the trip. Everyday was jammed packed with new sightings, surroundings and sheer joy. I loved this trip to Namibia and Botswana and would recommend this company and guide to everyone. Read more
