20 Day Namibia & Botswana Loop

Highlights of this self drive lodge and camping tour include the Africat Foundation at Okonjima, Eastern Etosha, the Bwabata and Nkasa Rupara National parks in the Caprivi, the Chobe National Park at Kasane, a day visit to the Victoria Falls, an adventure to the game rich areas of Savute and Khwai along the Okavango Delta's eastern border, the outpost town of Maun, and San at Ghanzi. A great round trip through Namibia and Botswana's northern areas with the focus on wildlife and adventure!

DAY 1

Arrival in Windhoek

You will be met at Hosea Kutako Airport by the vehicle hire company and transferred to their offices in Windhoek for the vehicle handover. After booking into your accommodation, you can relax at the pool or enjoy a visit to the city centre. Guided city tours, bicycle tours and cultural tours are all available on request. Dinner can be booked at the accommodation (if available) or the reception can assist with booking one of the many great local restaurants. Read more

Windhoek, 1 night
DAY 2

Okonjima & Africat Foundation

Depart from Windhoek after breakfast and travel north via Otjiwarongo to Okonjima, home of the Africat Foundation. Enjoy an afternoon activity of your choice.

Okonjima, 1 night
DAY 3

North to Etosha

Perhaps a morning activity before departing for the easternmost gate of Etosha National Park. Optional stops en route at the Hoba Meteorite and Lake Otjikoto are possible. Relax at the lodge's swimming pool or waterhole in the afternoon.

Von Lindequist Gate, Etosha
DAY 4

Eastern Etosha Excursion

This area of Etosha National Park has a higher concentration of predators including cheetah, leopard and lion. We therefore recommend planning an early morning game drive into the park for your best chance of sighting these wild predators. Relax at the lodge in the afternoon.

Von Lindequist Gate, Etosha
DAY 5

North to Rundu

Today you will need to plan for a fairly long drive Tsintsabis to Rundu. Overnight at the lodge situated along the Okavango. Activities like cultural visits, boat cruises and fishing are also possibilities if arriving in time.

Rundu area, 1 night
DAY 6

Into the Caprivi Strip

The journey continues into the Caprivi to Divundu at Popa falls and then on towards the Mahangu part of the Bwabata National Park. This tiny park is teeming with wildlife and a popular stop in the Caprivi.

Divundu area, 1 night
DAY 7

East to Kongola

A mere 200 km drive further and you reach the Kwando river at Kongola, famous for the beautiful Horseshoe bend drive. Overnight at one of great options in the area, or travel a bit further to the Nkasa Rupara Park and overnight just outside the park.

Kongola area, 2 nights
DAY 8

Horseshoe Bend Excursion

We highly recommend a guided tour to Horseshoe bend - quite spectacular scenery and wildlife.

Kongola area, 2 nights
DAY 9

Ngoma Borderpost to Kasane

After breakfast drive via Katima Mulilo and the border post Ngoma bridge to Kasane. After checking into your accommodation, you can either enjoy an afternoon boat cruise on the Chobe to the Puku Flats, or just relax at the pool.

Kasane, 3 nights
DAY 10

Vic Falls Day Trip

In the morning, we recommend leaving your hire vehicle in Kasane, and taking a shuttle across the Kazungula border to Victoria falls in Zimbabwe. Here you can visit the majestic waterfalls, and if time permits perhaps even bungee jump off the old train bridge. Enjoy a refreshing Zambezi beer and light lunch at the colonial styled Victoria Hotel before returning in the afternoon to Kasane. Read more

Kasane, 3 nights
DAY 11

Chobe Park Day Trip

If arranged in advance, and dependent on provider availability, we would suggest a combination day trip combining a game drive into the Chobe Park with a picnic lunch at Serondella and then return via boat cruise in the afternoon to your accommodation. Alternatively, you can plan a game drive in the morning and afternoon boat cruise or vice versa. This area has a high population of elephants and other wildlife and is therefore well worth the excursions by boat or car. Bear in mind that the morning cruise is often very different in sightings to the afternoon. Read more

Kasane, 3 nights
DAY 12

South to Savute

Continue south into the Chobe Park to the Savuti area. The Savuti Channel flows water again after close to 30 years and so these amazing flood plains are filled with lots of game and birdlife.

Savute, 2 nights
DAY 13

Savute Exploration

Spend the day exploring the beautiful bounty of life on the floodplains.

Savute, 2 nights
DAY 14

Onward to Khwai River

Use the Sandridge road from Savuti and exit the Chobe Park via the Mababe Gate. Head to the Khwai area just north of Moremi Park. We recommend overnighting outside the Moremi Park.

Khwai area, 2 nights
DAY 15

Khwai Exploration

The Khwai area offers extremely good chances for seeing leopard, lion, wild dogs, elephant, buffalo, hippo and crocodiles. Alternatively, enjoy a game drive into the Moremi park.

Khwai area, 2 nights
DAY 16

Head to Maun

After a short morning game drive, head south to Maun for on overnight stay. Here we would recommend a one hour flight over the Delta with Mack Air or a Mekoro excursion on the Thamalakane River.

Maun, 1 night
DAY 17

Ghanzi and San Experience

Head south west to the outpost town of Ghanzi (beware potholes on the tar road). Here you have the opportunity to visit with the local San Bushmen and learn about their culture.

Ghanzi, 1 night
DAY 18

Return to Namibia

Enjoy a morning activity before continuing to the Buitepos borderpost and back into Namibia.

Buitepos Border, 1 night
DAY 19

Departure Day
