Just come back from my amazing 34 day Zanzibar to Cape Town trip. It flew past - I had such a good time. Sam and Julius, my trip leader and driver, were awesome, really helpful and funny and had lots of interesting stories to tell. Had a great group too and have so many fantastic memories. From the white sands of Zanzibar, the smiling, waving children of Malawi, walking with lions and swimming at the top of Victoria Falls, gliding through the reeds of the Okovango Delta in a mokoro, elephants wandering through the campsite, seeing all the wildlife drinking from the watering hole at Etosha, skydiving over the Namibia dunes in Swakopmund, climbing up Dune 45 through the mist only for it to clear with the sunrise to going up to the top of Table Mountain and feeling on top of the world in Cape Town. Really want to go back and I've only been home a day. If you are hesitating about booking - just go for it! I loved every second, well maybe not taking down tents at 5am but practically every second! Acacia are a really good company, our truck seemed so much nicer than some others who didn't even have lockers inside the truck. I will be back to do the Kenya to Zanzibar leg of the trip at some point in the future and know I won't even bother looking at another company to do the trip!

Itinerary

Day 1-6: Cape Town, Orange River, Fish River Canyon, Swakopmund

We begin our safari with a township tour in cosmopolitan Cape Town. We then travel north to camp beside the beautiful Orange (Gariep) River. In Namibia we enjoy awesome views over the dramatic Fish River Canyon and climb the world’s highest dunes in the Namib Naukluft Park. We relax for a few days and enjoy adventure activities on offer in the coastal town of Swakopmund – try skydiving, quad biking or just soak up the atmosphere in one of Swakopmund’s many fine cafes.

Day 7-12: Spitzkoppe, Cheetah Park, Etosha National Park, Kalahari Bushman

We continue through Damaraland and camp amongst the eerie rock formations at Spitzkoppe before arriving at the Cheetah Park and Etosha National Park to glimpse Namibia’s wildlife drinking at its year-round waterholes. Heading into Botswana we then take a cultural Bushman walk to learn about life in the Kalahari.

Day 13-15: Okavango Delta, Maun

We embark on an exciting wilderness experience amongst the tranquil islands and watery channels of the Okavango Delta. We travel on foot and by mokoro (dugout canoe) and stay at our tented camp for a night on one of the river islands. The Okavango is a very unspoilt area and spending time out amidst the wilderness and the rivers listening to sounds of the African night is an unforgettable experience!

Day 16-21: Gweta, Chobe National Park, Livingstone

We drive to Gweta en-route to the Chobe National Park and relax on a sunset Fish Eagle Cruise. We hope to see the African fish eagle and perhaps also elephant, hippo and buffalo coming to the river to drink. From Chobe we cross into Zambia and arrive at our camp on the banks of the Zambezi, near Livingstone. We visit Victoria Falls and take time out to enjoy Africa’s ‘Adventure Capital’. Optional activities here include white water rafting, bungy jumping, scenic flights and elephant back safaris

Day 22-34: South Luangwa, Lake Malawi, Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar

From Livingstone we drive north, via Lusaka to South Luangwa National Park and onto Lilongwe we reach Lake Malawi for a day or two on the beach. There’s also the opportunity to meet the Malawi people, some of the friendliest in Africa, on a village walk. Crossing the border into Tanzania we hit the coast, passing by the Mikumi National Park to the bustling capital Dar es Salaam. We cross by ferry to exotic Zanzibar, explore the intriguing alleyways of old Stone Town and relax on the northern beaches, enjoying the Indian Ocean at its best.

Day 35-41: Mt Kilimanjaro, Arusha, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Nairobi

Returning to ‘Dar’ we travel north to Tanzania’s safari capital, Arusha. On the way, weather permitting glimpse the snowy peak of magnificent Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. In Arusha, shop for curios, visit a snake park, and meet the people of a Maasai village. We switch to 4x4s for an optional excursion in the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. The Serengeti and Ngorongoro are two of the best game reserves in Africa and promise spectacular scenery, remote camping and plenty of exciting wildlife encounters. We return to Arusha before crossing into Kenya and finishing our journey in Nairobi, where our tour ends.
