Cape to Kalahari to Cape, 5 days 5 nights
Red sand dunes, stunning sunsets, serenity and beauty await all who climb aboard the "Kalahari Ferrari" for a five day exploration of the Kgalagadi, Augrabies Falls and Cederberg on this all-inclusive tour.
After transfer overnight to Upington, our first stop is the quirky Molopo Lodge, on the outskirts of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Early the next morning we visit "Bosmansrus"; home to the original inhabitants of the Kalahari Desert, the Khomani San (bushman) people. A two-hour tracking and traditional lore experience is shared with us, an unforgettable glimpse into the Northern Cape as it was.
Our next adventure awaits at the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, where we board a safari vehicle for a guided tour. Spend a half-day searching for the fascinating creatures that inhabit the park; meerkat, wild cat, owls, eagles, and if we are lucky, leopard, cheetah and Black-Maned Lion.
The following morning we head off for the mighty Augrabies Falls, for an adrenaline-pumping half day of white water rafting. We start our journey home the following morning, stopping to camp at a lush green terraced camp perched at the foot of the Cederberg Mountains.
