Gasp at the most spectacular natural wonder of them all, Victoria Falls - Mosi-oa-Tunya, 'The Smoke that Thunders'. Hold on to your hat (and everything else) as you try to tame some of the most electrifying white water rapids anywhere in the world. Or give in to sanity and slip gently along the upper Zambezi watching the wildlife come to drink. A whole world away we discover the mysterious Okavango Delta. Gently poling through these winding waterways we view the teeming bird and wildlife.

Namibia means 'open plains' in the ancient Hottentot language. Its vast horizons and moonlike terrain give a feeling of space and freedom. Etosha is a unique National Park. With its flat open saltpans it's easy to see why the local people call it 'the place of dry water'. The Namib Desert is said to be one of the oldest in the world and you will climb some of the world's highest dunes at Sossusvlei.
Your adventure safari ends at the fairest Cape beneath the majestic Table Mountain.
