ADVICE ON ITINERARY TO ZAMBIA AND NAMIBIA

Jump to last reply

I have just about finalised an itinerary for our second trip to Africa in September - this time the focus is on Zambia and Namibia. The itinerary is as follows:

Lower Zambezi - Sausage Tree Camp (3 nights)
Old Mondoro Camp (2 nights)
South Luangwa NP - Tena Tena camp 4 nights)

We then fly to Port Elizabeth and do a self drive tour of the Garden route ending in Cape Town where we will stay for three nights at Ellerman House or Cape Cadogan.

Then to Namibia:
Swakopmund - Hansa Hotel (2 nights)
Soussusvlei - Desert Homestead (1 night)
Wolwedans - Wolwedans Dune Lodge (2 nights)
Onguma Reserve - Etosha - Onguma Tented Camp (3 nights)

Does anyone have any comments on this or the accommodation we have selected?

We had a life changing trip to Botswana in 2006 as some Fodorites will recall and I wanted to try and replicate that experience - such as being in an area where there are less people and lots of wildlife - i.e. I know there are crowds who go to Serengeti and Ngorogoro and the last thing I wanted was to be in a vehicle with dozens of other vehicles in the area. I love the feeling of remoteness and Botswana gave us such an amazing insight into Africa I am afraid we will never be able to better that. Hence Namibia where the Dunes are appealing!
