Caprivi house boat safari

If you want to get off the beaten track, this is a seriously scenic way to do it. On this tour you’ll hop aboard a boat for a cruise down either the Zambezi or Chobe River. Both of these rivers are renowned for their beauty, and together form a 130km border between Namibia and Zambia. This cruise is your chance to explore them by sunset.

Once you arrive you’ll board the boat and get ready to head off, then relax with a cool drink while taking in the beautiful sunset scenery down the river. As you meander your way down the river look out for hippos, otters and many different types of birds. If you’re really lucky you might even spot a crocodile!

Over the course of several hours your experienced skipper will answer any questions you might have about the local area, river and wildlife. And if that sounds like so much fun you’d rather stay longer? Not a problem – opt for an overnight safari instead.

With this option you’ll finish up the cruise and then head to a secluded white sandbank to warm up around a campfire. When sleep calls, you’ll retire to your tent under the stars and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the African night. What an adventure!

If you’re looking for wide open spaces and an ‘other-worldly-feel’ to your holiday, then Namibia is your best location in southern Africa. I drove from Sossusvlei area all the way to Swakopmund with a friend of mine, where all of a sudden, the desert descends and you reach coast, surrounded by palm trees; it is a phenomenal contrast and gives one a great sense of achievement having driven all that way.
