Namibia & Botswana: Off The Beaten Track – 31 days (Guided Group Self-Drive Camping Tour)

Led by a professional tour guide, this camping tour takes you to places you probably wouldn't go on your own. Enjoy the  adventure of driving your own fully equipped 4x4 vehicle which gives you more independence and your own space, but with the security and camaraderie of travelling with a small group in a convoy. Experience two dramatically different countries:

BOTSWANA: Unforgettable wildlife experiences in Botswana's Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park; sunset game viewing cruise on the Chobe River and an overnight visit to the mighty Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe).

NAMIBIA: San Bushmen of the Kalahari; the wildlife and salt pans of Etosha National Park; off the beaten track 4x4 driving along remote river beds and through canyons in Kaokoland and Damaraland; visit a  small village pre-school; spend time with the Himba people; Namibia's vast open spaces and incredible landscapes and visit Sossusvlei, the highest free standing dunes in the world.
