This self-drive tour starts and ends in Johannesburg. It will take you through Botswana, into the legendary Caprivi Strip and via Chobe and Saltpans back to Johannesburg. The drives are rather long but the sightings will be well worth the kilometers on the road.

You will stay on main roads so you will not explicitly need 4x4 driving skills as for the Okavango part of the trip you will be flown in and out from Maun.

Please note that all above accommodations are suggestions that can be changed and subject to availability until booked and confirmed.





Day 1 - Kwa Nokeng

Upon arrival at the airport you make your way to the car rental terminal to collect you rental car which is a 2x4 with high ground clearance which will be an advantage on the road. You will not waste any time and leave the busy airport and drive straight up North where you will cross the border into Botswana and arrive roughly 5 hours later in Kwa Nokeng.

Over here you will spend your first night in a comfortable tented room to get you accustomed to the sounds of nature.

Day 2 - Nata

Today you will make your way north into Botswana and in another quite long drive of about 5 1/2 hours you arrive in Nata where you spend the night.

The Makgadikgadi Pans are close by, so if you leave Kwanokeng early, you could visit the Park in the afternoon to enjoy the unspoilt nature and to see some of the Flamingos which populate the Nata side of the pans. You overnight in a glamping tent.
