Cape To Victoria Falls Explorer Camping Safari

Cape Town to Victoria Falls is one of the ‘classic’ overland routes through Southern Africa and it continues to be a firm favourite with travellers with its mix of wildlife, culture and stunning scenery. Highlights include Cape Town, the world’s second largest canyon at Fish River, the vast dunes and landscapes of the Namib Desert, Etosha National Park, the Kalahari, Okavango Delta, the Makgadikgadi Pan and the raw majesty of Victoria Falls. On 14 nights you will camp with the group in designated campsites with the comfort of showers and flush toilets as well as spending 2 nights wild camping in the Okavango Delta.  On wild camping nights there are no facilities and your Sunway guides will erect a bucket shower tent (water is heated on the campfire) and a pit toilet tent. It is not all camping! You will also spend one night in Cape Town in a hotel located at famous the V&A Waterfront and two nights in Swakopmund and another in Windhoek in guesthouses with ensuite bathrooms.
