Tour plan

This adventure concentrates on the Zambezi Region (Caprivi) of Namibia and South-Western Zambia. We will explore remote areas where most people don’t go.

During the course of our travels through this wilderness, we will visit 4 different national parks.

In Namibia we will visit Nkasa Rupara on the Linyanti River, Mudumu and Bwabwata (Horseshoe) on the Kwando River and in Zambia the Sioma-Ngwezi National Park.  The spectacular Ngonye Falls is the second highest falls in the Zambezi River and a marvel to experience.

It will be wild camping with 4 of the big 5 animals in the area but with comforts like ablutions and hot showers. The birding and photo opportunities are amazing as we traverse through forests, over flood plains and grasslands and enjoy, sunrise and sunset next to the rivers.

We end or our on the Zambezi/Chobe floodplains, across from the Chobe National Park.

Tour plan

Nkasa Rupara National Park - 2 nights

We will start our journey at the Shell garage in Kongola from where it is about 90 minutes’ drive to our campsite. Once settled in we can enjoy the African sounds around the open fire.

The next day we will spend at the Nkasa Rupara National Park, which terrain is similar to the Linyanti area of Botswana with the same animals like lions, leopard, elephants, cheetah, buffalo, red lechwe, reedbuck and many more.

There are no fences and our campsite is open to the park and the animals roaming free.

Hot showers (donkeys) and flush toilets is available.

Bwabwata National Park (Horseshoe) - 2 nights

It is only about an hour’s drive to Mudumu National Park. This park is known for sable- and roan antelope and we will certainly look for them while doing game drives.

After lunch, we get to refuel and carry on to our next campsite, Nambwa in Bwabwata National Park. It is sand roads and a game drive to our camp on the western bank of the Kwando River, where we will stay for 2 nights.

 The next day we will conduct game drives searching for wild dog, dwarf-mongoose and hopefully a honey badger.

 Late afternoon we will drive to the famous Horseshoe-bend area where we can enjoy the sunset with hippos and elephants. (We take our chairs with.)

It is quite a nice experience sitting out, while the animals come down to drink.

Hot showers (donkeys) and flush toilets are available.

 

Sioma-Ngwezi National Park - 1 night

Today we cross back to the Eastern side of the Kwando and turn North to Zambia. We will enter Zambia at a small and unknown border post where we also enter the Sioma-Ngwezi National Park. It is sand roads in the park with lots of elephants near the river.

Barotseland (western Zambia) is very underdeveloped and our basic camp for the evening is near the Kwando River.

This is an un-explored and seldom visited park. The Kwando is the border between Zambia and Angola.

Hot showers (donkeys) and flush toilets are available.

Sioma Camp - 2 nights

We exit the park near the town of Sioma and take the tar road to Sioma Camp on the Zambezi River.

Hot showers, flush toilets and a sunset cruise on the Zambezi will be awaiting.

After a leisurely wake up and breakfast we will drive to the Ngonye Falls, the second highest in the Zambezi River. Here we will swim/sit in the rapids and enjoy a natural massage.

During the afternoon we can relax at camp.

Hot showers (donkeys) and flush toilets are available.

Katima Mulilo - 1 night

We will cross the border back to Katima Mulilo (cappuccinos and ice cream) and do some shopping.

There is time to explore the town before we go to our camp on the Zambezi River.

Tonight, it is 220v power, hot showers, wifi and a cash bar. For those so inclined, you can try tiger fishing (own cost).

Serondela - 1 night bush camp

Just before the Botswana border we will turn left onto the Zambezi flood plains to our bush camp (pit toilet and no showers) for 1 night.

The camp is near the Chobe River, across from the Chobe National Park (Serondela picnic site) and we can enjo the sunset while watching animals coming to drink.

On the last day we will do a river cruise on the Chobe, which is always spectacular.

Home

It is not a goodbye but rather until the next tour. After breakfast you make your way back to the tar near the Ngoma border post and onto home.
