Combining many of South Africa and Namibia’s highlights, enjoy this meandering self-drive trip from the rugged Cape coast via the sands of the Kalahari Desert to the red dunes of Sossusvlei. Start your journey in the Mother City, Cape Town, before weaving your way north via the Cape winelands, the wildflowers (in season) of the Northern Cape, the mighty Orange River as it cascades over the Augrabies Falls to the Kgalagadi, home of black-maned lions and many other predators and desert adapted wildlife. Cross over into Namibia to visit the awe-inspiring Fish River Canyon, the desert vistas and horses of Klein Aus and finish your trip with spectacular Sossusvlei, the highest sand dunes in the world. Packed with scenic landscapes, incredible natural wonders and amazing wildlife experiences this package is sure to leave you in awe of southern Africa.

A word of advice - travel distances in Namibia, whilst not being huge, will take longer than Google Maps suggest, as the majority of roads you will travel on are gravel.
