Adventurous expedition

through the wilderness of southern Africa

Get ready for an extra adventurous journey through the wilderness of southern Africa. We will embark on a journey to Namibia in the summer of 2022 (from July 2 to July 23) to drive through this beautiful country as well as another bucket list country: Botswana.

These absolutely breathtaking countries in Africa are safe to travel and offer you the opportunity to maximize the use of your Bliss Mobil. You’ll see more than you can imagine! From the most diverse landscapes and abundant nature to the most special natural phenomena. And, with a bit of luck, you’ll be able to spot the Big Five: buffalos, lions, leopards, black rhinos and elephants.

Leave your details at the bottom of this page to receive a brochure of this unforgettable overland journey through Namibia & Botswana in your inbox shortly.

Tip! It is also possible to book an expedition in Namibia or Botswana with a Bliss Mobil rental expedition truck.

Guided tour

Please note: this video is not from this Namibia & Botswana Expedition but one of our previous Africa Expeditions (Big Five Expedition through Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe). The video does give you a good idea of what you can expect from our expeditions.

Right through the natural beauty of Africa

This is truly an off-road tour (level 5) that cuts across the untouched beauty of Africa, and as we’ll be leaving the public roads behind us, this means you’ll have to buckle up and work ‘hard’ behind the wheel every once in a while. We’ll wade through rivers, drive through savannahs, swamps and salt pans. Whether we’re crossing the dunes and Namib desert or the wilderness in Botswana: this tour presents a wonderful challenge and guarantees you will never be bored. Ever single day is different. You and your Bliss Mobil will face desert sands, swamps, salt pans, beaches and grasslands. And, wherever possible, we’ll be sleeping underneath the stars. 

What can you expect?

For three weeks 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 to the wildlife parks and bush of Botswana.

During this Bliss Mobil 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. A fantastic opportunity to drive your Bliss Mobil among the Big Five. Past the Caprivi, we’ll drive into Botswana where we’ll also get to marvel at the Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world. Wildlife migrates here to drink and bathe. We’ll be traveling the Okavango Delta by boat, exploring the Moremi Game Reserve and the famous Chief’s Island through the waterways filled with wildlife and birdlife. We conclude this special excursion with a camping adventure on a private island. A little further along, the water evaporates, creating an impressive salt pan: the famous Makgadikgadi Pan.

Allow yourself to be enchanted by the diverse African landscape. You’ll be surprised how often you’re driving through yet again different surroundings or spectacular landscapes. After an adventure-packed day, we’ll be sleeping in our home away from home, in some of the most magnificent places in the world. From the salt pans to the delta, dunes, villages and deserts. We’re willing to bet you’ve rarely felt so free in your life.

Follow-up expedition:

Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi & Tanzania

Tip! A sequel is already planned for this trip (not included in the price of the Namibia & Botswana expedition). Do you want to discover more of Africa? Book the follow-up expedition through Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania from 26/09/22 to 21/10/22 (26 days). If desired, we can arrange the storage of your vehicle (price on request). The vehicle will then be stored in a secured area close to the finish of the Namibia & Botswana expedition. Since we are also starting the follow-up expedition there, you can get back on board in September and enjoy the next expedition without having to ship the truck.
