DAY 1 Cape Town - Cederberg Mountains (L / D) We depart on a township tour included in the tour, allowing every one to experience it. We drive around Table Bay and continue north through the wheat growing ‘bread basket’ of South Africa. Crossing the Piketberg Pass into the rich fruit growing valley. We spend our first night in a picturesque campsite with views of the surrounding wine farms. We also have the opportunity to sample some of the nectar of the gods after taking a short walk in the surrounding vineyards. We camp under a canvass of stars – the perfect start to our African Overland adventure.

DAY 2 Cederberg Area - Gariep River (B / L / D) We travel from the Cederberg further north through the Namaqualand region, known for its abundance of Namaqua wildflowers blooming each spring. After a stop in the mining town of Springbok, we continue through the the Richtersveld desert area and reach the Gariep River, forming a natural border between South Africa and Namibia. Here we camp at a beautiful campsite on the bank of the river / border.

DAY 3 Gariep River - Fish River Canyon (Namibia) (B / L / D) We have the option of a half-day canoe trip on the Gariep/Orange River, with a great opportunity for bird watching or just a relaxing and scenic paddle. We cross into Namibia and reach the Fish River Canyon. At 161 km long, 27 km wide and about 550 m deep, it’s the second largest canyon in the world formed by tectonic activity, while erosion formed the inner canyon. We follow the eastern rim, giving us several viewing points to take in the spectacular vistas.

DAY 4 Fish River Canyon to Sesriem (B / L / D) Heading north we enter the Namib - Naukluft desert area, one of the oldest deserts in the world. We set up camp at Sesriem, a short distance away from Sossusvlei, surrounded by a dramatic sea of sand dunes reputed to be the highest in the world. Magnificent views of the vast desert can be seen from the top of these gigantic dunes, some over 300 m high. The desert puts on a show like nowhere else in the world with a extraordinaty view of the stars at night!

DAY 5 Sesriem (B / L / D) We set off early morning and enter the Namib - Naukluft National Park spending the morning exploring this amazing nature park. We have plenty time to climb to the top of Dune 45 - a truly memorable experience and photographer's dream. After a jaw-dropping view of the desert you will have the option to take the 4x4 shuttles further into the desert for a walk into Sossusvlei and explore the surrounding area including the Deadvlei.

DAY 6 Sesriem to Swakopmund (B) After breakfast we head north-west to meet the Atlantic Ocean at Walvis Bay, taking us across the Tropic of Capricorn – the ‘imaginary line’ of the southernmost point of direct sunlight. From Walvis Bay, we follow the coastline and arrive at Namibia’s prime holiday resort - Swakopmund. Here we enjoy 2 nights of rest, relaxation and adrenalin for those that are keen! We spend these 2 nights in dormitories, upgrades into private rooms are available, depending on availability (ask your trip leader)

DAYS 7 Swakopmund (B) Founded by the Germans in 1892, their colonial influence is still evident today. The town of Swakopmund offers a selection of excellent coffee shops, restaurants & bars as well as arts & crafts shops selling Namibian curios.
