Travel Information

Located in southwestern Africa, Namibia boasts a well-developed infrastructure, some of the best tourist facilities in Africa, and an impressive list of breathtaking natural wonders. Visitors can explore the capital of Windhoek and discover the lovely coastal town of Swakopmund boasting remnants of the country’s German influence, reflected in the architecture, culture, cuisine and the annual Oktoberfest celebrations. To properly appreciate this extraordinary country, you will have to venture out of the cities to explore the remarkable natural landscapes Namibia has to offer. These include: the impressive Fish River Canyon; the vast Etosha National Park teeming with abundant wildlife, such as lions, desert-adapted elephants and the Hartmann's Mountain Zebra; the hauntingly beautiful Kalahari Desert; and of course the Namib Desert stretching for over 2000 km along the magnificent Atlantic Coast. Namibia is an ideal destination for travellers seeking an unforgettable African experience in a uniquely beautiful untamed wilderness.

 

Situated in the southern reaches of Africa, Botswana is renowned for its pristine wilderness areas characterised by deep lagoons, wetlands, lush palms, rugged hills and desert plains scattered with scrubland. The country’s primary tourist drawcard is undoubtedly the vast red expanse of the Kalahari Desert and its remarkably beautiful Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world. These natural wonders provide a tranquil haven for an abundance of African wildlife to thrive. Other highlights include the impressive Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where visitors are privy to massive zebra migrations during the flood season; the Savuti plains, which host large prides of lions; and the Tsodilo Hills, where 4500 rock paintings form a unique record of human settlement over many millennia.

Overnight: Makgadikgadi Comfortable Mobile

Les pans (plaines) de Makgadikgadi sont des étendues de sel situées au nord-est du Kalahari au Botswana. Il s’agit d’un dépôt de sel provenant de l’ancien lac Makgadikgadi, disparu depuis plus de 10 000 ans, qui s’étendait sur 80 000 km2 et de 30 mètres de profondeur. La région de Makgadikgadi est composée de plusieurs pans (plaines) de sel au milieu d’un désert aride. Après la saison des pluies, l’herbe riche en sels minéraux recouvre ces plaines et attire de grands troupeaux de zèbres et de gnous, eux même chassés par les guépards de la région. Autour de ce désert de sel, la savane est recouverte de buissons denses où se déplacent de nombreux éléphants et girafes. Ces paysages d’immenses plaines d’herbe rase rendent l’observation des animaux particulièrement facile. Les animaux migrent constamment dans cette région de l’Afrique: la migration était autrefois triangulaire puisqu’elle incluait le marais de Savute mais celle-ci a été réduite à une migration entre Nxai Pan et Makgadikgadi suite au développement de la civilisation et l’installation de nouvelles clôtures.
