Cape Town – Victoria Falls Adventure Dec 2016
NOT for someone who like booking through a regular travel agent: I’m offering you an adventure of a lifetime – discover Africa, discover true adrenaline, discover yourself. Travel outside the regular commercial track. I aim to put together a small group of about 8-10 people, in two or three 4×4 vehicles. Are you up for it?
South Africa – Namibia – Botswana – Zambia
Dates: 5 – 17 December 2016
COST: $1500 pp. Includes a seat on this adventure – from Cape Town to Vic Falls.
Costs for meals, drinks, activities and accommodation we will split among the group to make it affordable. Accommodation will be a combination of permanent tents and bungalows – pretty comfortable but nothing fancy. If you’re a fussy traveller, this is not for you! Count approximately another $75 per day, depending on activities you want to do.
Get in touch with me and see if this is something you want to do:
Note: This is not a commercial travel booking, I am not your guide – I’m your travel companion, we all pitch in to make this adventure an experience of a lifetime.
Day 1 – 2: Cape Town – Orange River – Namibia
We’ll drive through the exciting and Scenic South African landscape, head for the Namibian border, and hope to cross the Orange River on the first day – here we’ll enjoy camp fires, Braais (BBQ) and a few beers/wines (non-drinkers are welcome too 🙂 at one of the camps – then do some canoeing/rafting in the morning.
Days 3 – 4: Fish River Canyon
We’ll leave the Orange River and head to the Fish River Canyon, find a place to spend the night and some activities in the canyon.
Days 4 – 5: Sossusvlei – Namib Desert
Leave the canyon and head towards the Namib Desert…google and find out more! We’ll probably stay at Hammerstein Lodge – great place, awesome atmosphere. If we have space for a board or two in the cars, we can go dune-surfing.
Day 6 – ish: (we’ll see how it goes..) WINDHOEK
Capital of Namibia – we get in, and get out. The only reason to stop over here is this place: http://www.joesbeerhouse.com/our-menu.html — eat your heart out.
Day 7-9: MAUN – OKAVANGO DELTA, BOTSWANA
Depending on the beer intake at Joe’s Beer House, we’ll try to get going at a decent hour, long day’s drive to Maun.
EXCURSION ON THE DELTA IN MOKOROKORO CANOES
Day 10 – 11: CHOBE
We’ll spend a day on Safari in the Spectacular Chobe National Park.
Day 12 – WE ARRIVE IN LIVINGSTONE/VICTORIA FALLS
This the end of station – BUT, here’s where we should hang out for 2-3 days and:
- Bungee jump
- Eat at Crocodile Ribs at Café Zambezi – you won’t regret it, unless you’re vegetarian
- Go an an evening booze cruise and see elephants, crocodiles, and various other creatures – it’s difficult to beat an evening on the Zambezi.
- River raft down the Zambezi – if you’re up for it! An amazing experience, one of the best rafting available in the world.
- A number of the many other activities to get into in Vic Falls and Livingstone
From here we’ll see – you might want to fly out of Livingstone and back home, or perhaps you will be able to hitch a cheap ride back in our vehicles down to Johannesburg and/or Cape Town – as mentioned, this is not an itinerary set in stone. Fluid, but solid.
