For five weeks – 34 days – Africa will surprise you at every turn as you drive through the wilderness, alongside the ocean, through nature parks and forests, deserts and you’ll get to see wildlife. A tour of contrasting experiences: from the rough, untouched nature of Namibia and the wildlife parks and bush of Botswana, you’ll be taken to the impressive Victoria Falls of Zimbabwe.
During this Bliss Mobil Big Five Expedition, you won’t know where to look. We’ll be driving alongside the Skeleton coast in Namibia, a 700-kilometre long stretch of rough, inhospitable landscape that we’ll be crossing (for a small part). Due to currents and weather conditions, this is a very dangerous area for the shipping industry, which means you’ll be seeing a lot of shipwrecks. These wrecks – skeletons – are what the area is named for. The area is also home to large colonies of seals. Speaking of animals: Etosha National Park (Namibia) is the first large national wildlife park we’ll be driving through. Past the Caprivi, we’ll eventually drive into Zimbabwe past Victoria Falls. In Botswana, we’ll also get to marvel at the Okavango Delta, a river that does not end in the sea, but an inland delta. Wildlife migrates here to drink and bathe. A little further along, the water evaporates, creating an impressive salt pan.
