They are the highest in the world and home to a plethora of animal life. Afterwards you will jump in the back of a pickup truck for a trip to Sossusvlei, the incredible salt and clay pan just nearby (approximately 30 minutes each way).

The township has an interesting German-Namibian atmosphere, which makes it a pleasant town to simply walk around and explore. Your accommodation here is a cosy desert bungalow. Each of these bungalows sleeps six people, and bathroom facilities will be shared. WiFi is available.

With free time today, it's worth checking out the Germanic architecture and taking advantage of some excellent souvenir shopping. If you're after a dose of history and culture, you can stop in at the lighthouse and visit the Swakopmund Museum. Active types and thrill-seekers might like to take advantage of the many outdoor activities on offer – this town is the adventure-sports mecca of Namibia. (It's important to check with your leader if you are unsure about the safety of any of these options, as some may not be recommended by our company.)

With another free day in this beautiful seaside town, you might like to do some reading, relaxing and swimming. Alternatively you can venture further afield – perhaps to the Okakambe Trails or the Camel Farm (both located in the same area, around 12 kilometres east of town).

Although you shouldn't try to climb to the top, there are some excellent hikes and guided walks throughout the area, which is rich in plant life and even has some bush paintings to be found. The Spitzkoppe is known for its stunning beauty and the thousands of ancient Bushmen rock art paintings that are still viewable.

The bushland surrounding the pans is difficult to see through, but there are enough clearings, pans and waterholes to usually allow for some sightings. Namibia has protected its game reserves against poaching, which means significant numbers of elephants, antelope and other herbivores reside here. This evening you will spend the night at Namutoni Camp (upgrades are available, subject to availability).

The San are the oldest ethnic group in Namibia, having inhabited Southern Africa for an estimated 20,000 years. Around 30,000 of them live in Namibia, but only 2,000 of them still follow a traditional way of life.

Botswana's first national park is famous for its high concentration of elephants, so keep an eye out for them. They can often be seen swimming in the Chobe River. The river also attracts chettahs, hippos and crocodiles; the latter like to sun themselves by the water's edge.

Travel on to Victoria Falls (approximately 3 hours), crossing the border into Zimbabwe in time to have lunch on the banks of the Zambezi. Though a visit to Victoria Falls' is optional, it is highly recommended. The staggering curtain of water is about 1.6 kilometres, and cascades 108 metres into a narrow gorge below. In the wet season, the spray created can rise up an incredible 400 metres and the falls become an impressive raging torrent. In the dry season, the view of the falls is unobstructed by spray and you can see little islets in the river below. The Victoria Falls entrance fee is not included in the price of the trip, as it is mandatory for tour groups to have a local guide escort. We feel that seeing these waterfalls for the first time should be an uninterrupted sensory experience. Your leader will take you to a local activity centre where a range of activities will be on offer. We have not risk assessed all activities and only those listed in our trip notes are recommended. It is against company policy for leaders to facilitate the booking of any activities that have not been risk assessed or do not adhere to our company’s Responsible Travel policy and ethos. This includes organising transport to and from these activities in our vehicles. Your camp has WiFi, flush toilets, showers and optional upgrades. Enjoy a final dinner tonight with your fellow travellers. Another free days to enjoy the many activities on offer. Alternatively, you may like to get to know your new group members with another visit to the falls.

Special Information: You may notice businesses offering an optional 'Walk with the Lions' experience. We ask all Intrepid travellers to avoid this activity as it is contrary to our Responsible Travel policy. While wildlife viewing is a big part of many of our itineraries, we strive to only view animals in their natural habitats and to do so with the greatest level of respect. The lion walking industry directly contributes to the captive breeding and canned hunting of lions.

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Abendessen

38. Tag: Stone Town

Catch a ferry to the 'Spice Island' of Zanzibar. Filled with idyllic beaches, winding cobblestone alleyways and fragrant bazaars, Zanzibar has a history encompassing everything from slave traders to Arabian sultans and fruit exporters. The sight of traditional dhows sailing along the coast evokes what the island must have been like in Livingstone's day. The old part of Zanzibar's main city is known as Stone Town. The best way to see this exotic port town is on foot, exploring the markets, shops, mosques, palaces and courtyards. When the sun is setting, perhaps enjoy a sundowner from a bar overlooking the seafront, and a seafood curry at a local restaurant. Spend a night in Stone Town at a basic inn with double/twin-share rooms and access to WiFi.

Special Information: As this is a combination trip the composition of your group may change at this location. There will be a group meeting to discuss the next stage of your itinerary and meet your new fellow travellers. Please note the Zanzibar portion of your itinerary may have more passengers than the maximum group size of 22 as we have a crossover of trips starting and finishing in Zanzibar.

Optional Activities:
Stone Town Tour - Dharajani Market, Joseph's Cathederal, Palace Museum, Forodhani Food Market - USD20
Zanzibar - Prison Island Tour - USD25

Unterkunft: Standard-Hotel

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück

39-40. Tag: Sansibar

Check out of your Stone Town hotel and either drive to the spice plantations for your optional guided tour, or head directly to the perfect northern beaches. On the spice plantations guided tour you can learn all about the history of this town's renowned spice trade. You will also have the opportunity to touch, smell and taste various spices, such as cinnamon, vanilla and ginger. Sample some teas made with these spices too. After lunch here you will head to the northern beaches, where white sands and sparkling blue seas await, and reunite with your group. This is the Indian Ocean at its best.

Enjoy free time in this beautiful archipelago today. There are many ways you can spend your day – perhaps talk to your leader for any recommendations they might have. Snorkelling in search of exotic fish is an excellent option. You might also like to feast on a sumptuous lunch of grilled local seafood, or simply relax in a hammock underneath a coconut tree with a good book.

Optional Activities:
Zanzibar - Spice tour - USD25
Zanzibar - Dhow Trip - USD60
Zanzibar - Snorkelling - USD60

Unterkunft: Bungalow

Verpflegung: 2x Frühstück

41. Tag: Bagamoyo

Catch the midday ferry to Dar es Salaam with your leader and group. Then you will join the overland vehicle, meet your driver and cook, and take the short drive to Bagamoyo. Your camp at Bagamoyo is right by the beach. Accommodation upgrades are available at this location (subject to availability). However, there is no access to Wi-Fi, and showers are cold only.

Special Information: As this is a combination trip, the composition of your group may change at this location.

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Abendessen

42. Tag: Usambara Berge

Perhaps wake up early and visit the old slave trade markets. It's then time to get off the well-beaten track and head into the remote Tanzanian mountains (approximately 7 hours). The Usambara Mountains are a lovely unspoilt area of Tanzania. Unlike the coast and the north, this area attracts very few tourists, so it has a freshness that can be hard to find elsewhere. The forests stretch across the mountains and are ideal for easy hikes and guided walks. You base is the old German colony of Lushoto. You'll stay in the grounds of one of the earliest hotels in Africa. The campsite has flush toilets and showers, and upgrades are possible. WiFi is rare here though.

Fahrzeit: ca. 7 Std.

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

43. Tag: Usambara Berge

Explore the beautiful Usambara Mountains and experience this area's gentle hospitality on a visit to some of its small communities. As beautiful as this place is, its real jewels are the local people and villages. From your base, you will take a walk out to the gorgeous Irente viewpoint. It's best to pack some water and snacks in a day pack for this trip. On your way back, visit a local cultural project based at Irente farm and enjoy a picnic lunch.

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Irente - Lushoto hike & local lunch

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

44. Tag: Arusha

Today is a full day of travel as you board your truck once again and venture towards Tanzania’s national parks. Your destination is the sprawling, gateway town of Arusha. It should take about 10 hours to arrive at your campsite on the outskirts of the town. The campsite has flush toilets and showers. It also has a bar – the perfect place to unwind with a drink after a long day in the truck.

Fahrzeit: ca. 10 Std.

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Abendessen

45. Tag: Karatu

Take a short drive to the small town of Kisongo where you’ll enjoy a fun day with some local mamas. Here the women will teach you how to prepare a local Swahili dish for lunch. Before enjoying your creations you will have the chance to do some traditional crafts and accompany the women around their village in smaller groups. After this illuminating day, drive to the small town of Karatu, the gateway to the Ngorongoro Crater.

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Kisongo - Cooking class, crafts & village walk

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

46. Tag: Ngorongoro Krater / Serengeti Nationalpark

Get up early, put your camping and personal gear into a six-person jeep and head out for an excursion into the Serengeti via the Ngorongoro Crater. Enjoy a safari in the crater, spending between three and four hours exploring this incredible, perfectly intact volcanic crater. Watch for black rhinos, lions, leopards, elephants, impalas, zebras and hippos. The crater floor offers excellent game viewing all year round (some 30,000 animals live here) and the photo opportunities here are unrivalled. Next it's on to the wide open plains of the Serengeti. Green after the rains, brown and burnt in the dry season, this is perhaps the quintessential image of Africa – the home of thousands of hoofed animals and fierce predators. Your campsite is within the Serengeti itself, so listen out for the sounds of nocturnal animals as you drift off to sleep. The camp is basic with limited running water and no upgrades or Wi-Fi available.

Special Information: You will notice some Maasai villages in the region of the Ngorongoro crater offering a cultural experience. Intrepid recommends avoiding these villages, as they can impact negatively on the Masai culture and travellers' perceptions of it by selling an artificial experience.
Our camp within the Serengeti National Park does not have a fence to separate the camp from the animals. This is quite the experience as animals such as buffalo and hyenas often come close to camp after sundown. On arrival at the camp your leader will give a detailed safety briefing on what is required to ensure the safety of the group.

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Ngorongoro Crater - 4x4 Game Drive
Serengeti National Park - 4x4 Game Drive

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

47. Tag: Serengeti Nationalpark

Awake at dawn and embark on a game drive. You will head out while the animals are at their most active, then head back to camp for brunch at around 11 am. After spending the middle of the day relaxing, just like the animals do, head out again as the day begins to cool. You'll return from this second game drive in time for dinner.

There's also the option of a balloon ride over the park today (in place of some of the morning game drive). If you have pre-booked this activity (please see the 'Important Notes' section) you will be picked up before dawn and driven to the launch site. After a safety briefing, you will glide through the dawn, sometimes at tree height, which provides amazing photo opportunities. Sometimes you will ascend, getting an overview of the enormity of the plains and the early morning movements of the teeming herds. After landing, you'll be treated to a five-star bush breakfast, then be returned to your camp.

Special Information: The balloon ride is offered as a pre-booked service which will guarantee you a place. If you would rather wait and get a better price by booking this locally on the ground, you are welcome to, but keep in mind that this is a popular activity and places are limited. If you participate in this activity you will miss the morning half of the included game drive.

Optional Activities:
Serengeti National Park - Balloon Ride (from price) - USD599

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Serengeti National Park - 4x4 Game Drive

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

48. Tag: Mto Wa Mbu

Rise with the sun and enjoy another game drive as you exit the Serengeti. Jump back into your overland vehicle and head for Mto wa Mbu. Take a stroll and acquaint yourself with this delightful small village – it's a fascinating snapshot of small-town African life, situated well off the tourist trail. Tonight you'll stay at a campsite with flush toilets, showers and optional upgrades (subject to availability).

Enthaltene Aktivitäten:
Serengeti National Park - 4x4 Game Drive

Unterkunft: Campingplatz

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen, 1x Abendessen

49. Tag: Nairobi

Set off early heading to the border with Kenya and on to Nairobi (approximately 9–10 hours). You'll be dropped at the finishing point hotel in Nairobi. No accommodation is provided for tonight, but this can be arranged when you book this trip. You can also choose to finish your trip in Arusha this morning if you wish.

Special Information: It's important not to book any flights departing Nairobi earlier than 10 pm (or 1 pm if you're departing in Arusha).

Fahrzeit: ca. 10 Std.

Verpflegung: 1x Frühstück, 1x Mittagessen

Falls du Interesse an einer optionalen Heißluftballonfahrt über die Serengeti hast, dann teile uns dies bitte bereits bei Buchung mit, da die Plätze auf 16 Personen begrenzt sind.

Mithilfe
Bei dieser Tour sind nicht nur Zuschauer, sondern aktives Mitglied der Gruppe. Alle Teilnehmer packen bei den täglich anfallenden Aufgaben mit an. Dazu gehören beispielsweise die Unterstützung bei der Zubereitung der Mahlzeiten, Einkaufen, Geschirrspülen oder der Auf- und Abbau der Zelte. Jeder in der Gruppe beteiligt sich und man wechselt sich täglich mit den Aufgaben ab. Der Spaß steht dabei im Vordergrund!

Tourstil
Echtes Abenteuer für budgetbewusste Reisende, die Unabhängigkeit mit der Sicherheit einer Gruppe verbinden wollen oder ein Maximum an Flexibilität suchen. Du kannst alles erwarten, aber keine Extras, die du nicht in Anspruch nehmen willst. Das bedeutet in der Regel einfache Unterkünfte, einige inkludierte Highlights und viel Freiraum für eigene Erkundungen.

Kombireise
Diese Tour setzt sich aus verschiedenen Tourabschnitten zusammen, daher kann sich die Gruppenzusammensetzung und Reiseleitung während der Tour ändern. Auf Sansibar kann wegen der Überschneidung von startenden und endenden Touren die maximale Gruppengröße von 22 Personen überschritten werden.
