Self-Drive Namibia & South Africa: Deserts, Dunes & Canyons - 17 Days
Be enchanted and mesmerised by the desert landscapes, Indigenous peoples and outstanding wildlife of Namibia and South Africa. This is a trip for those looking to get ‘off the beaten track’ but still looking for a level of accommodation comfort. Start with the stunning red sand dunes of Sossusvlei before heading south to the mountains and plains of Klein Aus, and the world’s second largest canyon - the Fish River Canyon. Cross into South Africa to experience the power of the Orange River as it plunges 70 metres over the Augrabies Falls before being hosted by the #Khomani San, the original custodians of the Kalahari Desert, to learn of their culture and tradition. Your final stop is the magnificent Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park with its incredible endemic wildlife, fascinating raptors and, of course, stunning black-maned lion.
A word of advice - travel distances in Namibia, whilst not being huge, take longer than Google Maps suggest, as the majority of roads you travel on are gravel.
