Itinerary

Day 1

Bust out the chic safari attire - our overland adventure begins in cosmopolitan Cape Town. Overlooked by Table Mountain and bordered by the Atlantic, Cape Town is one of the world's most picturesque cities. Before we leave, we take a tour of the Cape Flats, one of the city's intriguing townships, where we visit some of the local people and see some of the area's community projects. After, we head north through South Africa's Western Cape and through the fruit-growing regions of Citrusdal to our campsite near the Olifants River. Settling in to our campsite, we'll get properly acquainted with the rest of the group, indulge in the option to sample some of the local wines of the region, and enjoy our first night under the huge African sky.

Included today:
-Cape Town township tour

Meals:
-Lunch
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Wine tasting

Day 2

Continuing north, the landscape gradually turns drier and rockier as we head towards the Namibian border. We set up camp tonight on the South African side of the Gariep (Orange) River, which makes for a stunning backdrop. Our site provides you with the necessary comforts like hot showers, flush toilets, grassy floors and even a bar (hello, sundowners!). Take the option to explore the Gariep (Orange) River on a canoe safari, take a dip in the safe swimming waters, or hike to the lookout above the campsite. The camp by night is illuminated by the stars of the Richtersveld, making for a wonderfully tranquil experience.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 3

This morning we take an optional canoe safari on the river (if we didn't get the chance the previous evening) or simply relax on the water's edge, before entering Namibia via Vioolsdrif Border post and arriving at the awesome Fish River Canyon by mid-afternoon. One of the natural wonders of Africa, the canyon is some 500 metres deep and over 160 kilometres long, and considered the second largest in the world after the Grand Canyon. Prep your camera lens for amazing photos this afternoon, especially when the sun begins to set over the sharp bend in the river known as 'Hell's Corner'. Trust us, it's friendlier than its name implies.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Canoe safari

Day 4

After a night near the canyon we continue north until we reach Sesriem, the gateway to the Namib Naukluft National Park, containing the world's oldest and highest desert sand dunes. The Namib-Naukluft National Park contains part of the Namib Desert and the Naukluft mountain range. With an overall area of 49,768 square kilometres, it's larger than Switzerland, is the second largest game park in Africa and the fourth largest in the world. Here we set up camp for the evening under the starry Namibian sky.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 5

This morning we enter the National Park to trek to the top of famous Dune 45 and marvel at the majestic open desert. It's a spectacular sight, but be warned - it's an energy sapping climb to the top as some dunes are over 300 metres high! After a well-deserved breakfast, we continue deeper into the park for an optional nature walk in Sossusvlei, amid Namibia's unspoilt natural environment. Be sure to bring your camera - the shifting colours of the desert as the sun climbs throughout the morning offer some brilliant photo opportunities. Departing from the dunes, we make our way to Solitaire and our accommodation for the night.

Included today:
-Dune 45 & Sossusvlei shuttle & guided walk
-Visit the Sesriem Canyon

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 6

Leaving Solitaire, we head for the Atlantic coast for two nights, crossing over the Tropic of Capricorn, and stopping for a photo opportunity en route. Swakopmund makes for a refreshing change with cooler Atlantic sea air, a taste of civilisation and a swathe of exciting adventure options.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Sandboarding
-Quad biking
-Skydiving
-Deep sea fishing
-Scenic flights
-Swakopmund township tour

Day 7

A small town redolent of Namibia's colonial past but with modern adventure oriented attractions for visitors, Swakopmund is Namibia's main seaside resort, sandwiched neatly between the desert and the ocean - a delightful coastal oasis. Try some desert-based optional activities, such as quad biking, sandboarding, skydiving (weather permitting) and more. For those not that way inclined, peruse the town's many shops, restaurants, museums and art galleries - or simply stroll along the promenade admiring the ocean.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Sandboarding
-Quad biking
-Skydiving
-Deep sea fishing
-Scenic flights
-Swakopmund township tour

Day 8

Leaving the coast we turn inland to the beautiful Damaraland region and stop at Spitzkoppe to admire ancient bushman paintings still visible on peculiar rock formations. The rock formations peak at approximately 2000 metres above sea level and form a spectacular view, with one of the most impressive being the 'Bushman Paradise'. Take your time to explore the area and enjoy its delightful calmness. Remember to keep an eye on the ever-changing colour of the rocks, especially during sunrise and sunset.

Included today:
-Spitzkoppe Bushman paintings

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 9

We make our way north to Etosha National Park, a vast reserve of over 20,000 square kilometres surrounding a central salt depression or 'pan'. The pan is seasonally full of water but specially managed waterholes sustain some 114 mammal and 340 bird species. Pitching our tents near a floodlit waterhole, we embark on a short afternoon game drive upon arrival. As dusk falls, keep your eyes peeled for a range of nocturnal visitors including elephants, giraffes, zebras, hyenas and even lions, making it one of the most memorable wildlife encounters in Namibia.

Included today:
-Etosha National Park game drive

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 10

Etosha National Park is the ultimate definition of the perfect game viewing destination. Picture this: a barren landscape teeming with neon flamingos and pelicans and surrounded by nothing but native bush, grasslands, scrubland and saline lakes. Trust us, you'll be in awe of this magical spot. Today we dive straight into the heart of Etosha National Park and enjoy a full day's game drive, keeping a keen watch for more of the local residents.

Included today:
-Etosha National Park game drive

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 11

Departing epic Etosha, we head south to Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, which is located in a basin between the Khomas Highland, Auas and Eros Mountains. Windhoek is home to approximately two hundred thousand people - an extremely small capital by global standards. The city centre is characterised by a proliferation of German-style buildings, a lasting reminder of Namibia's early colonial history and atmosphere. Take the opportunity to enjoy a night out at one of the local restaurants or visit the famous Joe's Beer House.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch

Day 12

Leaving Windhoek we travel west into the Kalahari region and cross into Botswana. Our first stop is at the town of Ghanzi. Here, in the midst of this (seemingly) barren terrain we meet the San Bushmen and embark on a guided bush walk. Discover how the locals harness nature and manage the resources around them to the maximum, without damaging the fragile balance found in this ecosystem. Your support of this ecotourism venture gives the San Bushmen a sustainable income and helps keep their culture alive. Around the campfire, marvel at the ancient dance rituals of the San Bushmen as they demonstrate a healing or trance dance, which can be an intensely spiritual experience for both participants and visitors alike.

Included today:
-Kalahari Bushman walk

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Traditional dancing

Day 13

Gateway to the Okavango Delta, Maun is the fifth largest town in Botswana and is an eclectic mix of modern buildings and native huts. Since Maun's founding in 1915 it has had a reputation as a hard-living, wild-west sort of town, built to supply local cattle ranching and hunting operations. Today, Maun is a thriving tourist hub and is particularly infamous for its influx of donkeys (and to a lesser extent, goats), which are used by local traders and farmers alike to transport their wares to sell on the roadside.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 14

Leaving the campsite in Maun we begin our excursion into the Okavango Delta by an open 4x4 truck to the mokoro station, where we'll be introduced to the local Tswana Polers who will be guiding us on the expedition. We travel by mokoro (dugout canoe) among the giant lily pads, tall grasses and labyrinthine channels in search of hippos, crocodiles and a variety of birds to our island tented camp, before exploring the area on a walking safari.

Included today:
-Okavango Delta excursion with mokoro/walking safari

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 15

Leaving the Okavango Delta, we begin an easy-paced mokoro ride back to the station, then back to Maun. Spend the rest of your time here on your own watch, taking in the natural scenery from camp or by setting out on a number of optional activities.

Included today:
-Okavango Delta excursion with mokoro

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 16

Next up, we roll onto Elephant Sands - a bush lodge and campsite in the northeast part of Botswana where majestic elephants meander at the natural waterhole right in front of the lodge. As there are no fences, the animals roam freely from one waterhole to the next - so expect to see any number of species during your stay. Observing wild elephants at such close proximity will easily be one of the most amazing experiences you'll have in Africa.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Morning bush walk
-Evening game drive

Day 17

Today we make our way to Kasane in the northeast corner of Botswana and the gateway to the wonderful Chobe National Park. By size, Chobe is the third largest game park in the country and home to the largest diversity of wildlife, including elephants, lions, buffaloes, hippos and an abundance of birdlife - the most famous of the latter being the African Fish Eagle. We take our own 'Fish Eagle' cruise on the Chobe River, which is a great opportunity to see hippos and, perhaps elephants or buffaloes, coming to the river to bathe and drink. Cameras at the ready!

Included today:
-Fish eagle boat cruise

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 18

Moving on from Kasane we take the ferry across the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers into Zambia. The Zambezi River is the fourth longest in Africa (after the Nile, Congo and Niger) and the largest flowing into the Indian Ocean. Home to one of the world's largest waterfalls, we visit Victoria Falls and try to take in the immensity of one of nature's Wonders of the World. At various times of year, the spray from the Falls can be seen from up to 20 or 30 kilometres away, hence the local name 'Mosi au Tunya' - the 'smoke that thunders'. Hint: pack a raincoat to protect your precious camera equipment!

Meals:

I've just finished the Mega European tour with Trip Leader Nicole Smith & Coach Driver Lloyd Spencer. I was incredibly nervous about going on a tour across Europe, but the planning and organisation by our Topdeck Crew made everything stress free. All the driving and walking tours were very informative, with Nicole being able to recall information off the top of her head about the history of all the Countries and Landmarks we visited. Our driver Lloyd took a very professional approach to his work and should be praised for all the effort he puts in. Both Nicole & Lloyd are enthusiastic individuals, who are always able to give great recommendations in every Country we stopped. This trip was absolutely fantastic and will be in my memories for life. A very special thanks to these two and topdeck for such an amazing trip.

Accomodations

Camping

On our Camping trips, you will be staying in easy-to-assemble, two-person dome tents provided by us. Please try to keep the tent clean, zipped up and remember that no smoking, candles or mosquito coils are permitted in the tent. To keep pests away, we also ask that you not eat or leave food in your tent. Ain’t nobody got time for bugs.

Please note: You must provide your own sleeping bag on Camping trips.

Campsites

Campsites you will stay in vary considerably. The general standard in East Africa is modest, although most have reasonable toilet and shower facilities. In southern Africa, the standard is usually somewhat higher. Occasionally we may camp out in the bush (with limited or no facilities).

In addition to meal assistance, there are other odd jobs you will be expected to undertake as part of any trip in Africa. We ask that you get involved in collecting firewood, lighting fires, filling water tanks, loading luggage, keeping the truck clean and even helping with the dishes. Lending a hand has never been so much fun, trust us.

Accommodated

Sometimes you just need your creature comforts. We totally get it. That’s why our Accommodated trips offer the same level of excitement and adventure as our Camping trips – except every day ends with a night in a comfortable bed in a range of safari cabins, tented camps and hostels.

Please note: Trips staying in Spitzkoppe and Serengeti & Ngorongoro Crater will not be accommodated and two-person dome tents with a mattress and sleeping bag will be provided for these locations.

Meals Included:

Your included meals are detailed in the 'More Inclusions' section of this document. While on the road, you will be provided with three meals a day unless otherwise stated. African overland trips are participation based, which means you will be expected to do your bit for the team by helping with purchasing, cooking and cleaning-up duties. In some places, we will be able to go out for a meal. If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs, as long as you advise your travel agent or Topdeck Trip Consultant when you book. Please be aware that it may not be possible to cater for every single dietary requirement, but we will always try our best to arrange it.
