Namibia & Botswana
November 6, 2019
Let's move the spotlight away from the country of South Africa to make it now shine on two of its neighbors. Two marvelous lands that share some of South Africa's amazing landscape in addition to their own specific topography, culture and wildlife.
Namibia and Botswana are very special countries offering totally different landscapes, from the oldest desert in the world, the largest natural salt pans to the largest fresh water delta that does not enter the ocean. Travelling through countries on a land tour gives you an experience next to none. The local inhabitants have a wide variety of languages and cultures from the Himba and Herero to the Bushman. Namibia is a land of wide open spaces, known for its contrasting landscapes and the Namib Desert is the oldest in the world, with an awe-inspiring sense of space. Botswana is the premier wildlife destination in Southern Africa and the rustic, remote atmosphere of its wildlife areas offer real adventure. At the northern edge of the Kalahari lies the Okavango Delta known as the ‘Jewel of the Kalahari’, a secret oasis in an otherwise water-starved land. Some of the largest herds in Southern Africa roam free in this unspoiled wilderness, the wildlife is spectacular and varied.
