Itinerary to Namibia to Botswana(Okavango Delta & Moremi & Chobe National Park)
The Okavango Delta covers over 15,000 square kilometres, making it the world’s largest oasis. Located in northern Botswana, the Okavango River is a unique natural phenomenon - flowing more than 1 000 km (620 miles) from its source in Angola, this river disappears beneath the sands of Botswana, creating a lush inland delta in the midst of this otherwise arid country.
Botswana is a wonderfully easy country to drive around as long as you stick to the main network of roads as most of these are tarred and reasonably well maintained (there’s the odd pothole and cow to watch out for), however, once you head off these roads, it’s a whole different ball game! The bush tracks within the parks are usually only maintained by other vehicles so don’t be surprised to find tracks running out, multiple tracks, or deep sand!
On your arrival at Windhoek International Airport you will be picked up and transferred to your Lodge/ Guesthouse/ Hotel. Depending on your flight's arrival time before to proceed on the six-hour drive to the Sossusvlei .
Damaraland one of the most scenic regions of Namibia. Drive along the Skeleton Coast to Cape Cross - the largest breeding cape fur seal colony in the world. The stench of 100,000 seals can be a tad over-powering. Game drives on private reserves in search of the famed desert-adapted elephant, black rhino and giraffe; among other hardy plains herds look out for Hartmann's mountain zebra.
