Damaraland camp damaraland camp 2400

Namibia and Cape Town Road Trip

Inspirational self drive holiday to South Africa and Namibia

Set your own pace on this road-trip adventure and discover Namibia's Damaraland and Etosha National Park as well as South Africa's mother city, Cape Town. With generally good, tarred roads and low traffic numbers your 7 days driving through Namibia will be spent on a classic 'loop' through the north of the country. From Damaraland Camp, look out upon distant mountain ranges, wide open plains and huge granite formations in this diverse and contrasting landscape. Here you can discover rare Bushman art, view desert elephant and track critically endangered black rhino. If you're up to it, climb the Brandberg, Namibia's highest peak. At Ongava Tented Camp see the Big 5, including both black and white rhino, as well as giraffe and several antelope species on day and night game drives and nature walks.

End your adventure in Cape Town. Marvel at Cape Town's sights, from Table Mountain and Cape Point to Robben Island and the V&A Waterfront, all from the luxury of the 5-star Twelve Apostles Hotel, known for its incredible sea views.
