Day 3 & 4 Kgalagadi – Game Drives

Before first light we set off to visit the world famous stars of the TV show “Meerkat Manor”. These habituated Meerkat’s are totally wild yet unafraid of humans and form part of one of the longest wildlife studies on record. Watch them wake up and begin their daily chores and walk a mile in the shoes of a clan member. We continue to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park end experience the beauty and solitude of the Kalahari at its finest. The next morning we go on a full day game drive in search of elusive predators and wildlife. Twee Rivieren and Mata Mata.

Day 5 Keetmanshoop – Quiver Tree Forest

We leave the park and enter Namibia. Quiver Tree Forest Camp is situated adjacent to a quiver tree forest just outside from Ketmanshoop. We go for a hike through massive boulder and quiver trees in this alien landscape in search of that perfect photograph.

Day 6 & 7 Luederitz – Kolmanskop and Diaz Point tours

The road takes us due West towards the Atlantic Ocean and the small German settler town of Luedeitz. On route we stop at Aus to in search of wild horses that have made these desert plains their home.

Today we cross back into South Africa and the scenery begins to change. With every Kilometre the vegetation becomes lusher. The vast array of plants and succulents is mind blowing as carpets of bloom begin to appear along the road. The most beautiful flower fields are in the national parks and we explore these in the region. Agama Tented Camp
