Southern Africa (Namibia, Botswana and Zambia)


Had the amazing opportunity to visit Namibia, Botswana and Zambia from January 21st to February 4th.

Complete Album.

We drove ~5000KM in a Toyota Hilux, from Windhoek, Namibia to Livingstone, Zambia.

Here’s a the path we took :

Here’s some of the stuff we saw on our way from Windhoek to Sesriem :

Dead trees with fake animals…

Once we got there we stayed at Sossus Oasis, camping. Right after settling in we went to Dead Vlei.

On the way back, random dunes again

The next day we went back in the morning, the sunrise

Came back to the entrace of the park and visited Sesriem Canyon, totally dried up

Later we went back for some shots during golden hour, saw some Oryx

Dune 40

Random dunes

The next day we made our way up to Cape Cross, quick stop in Solitaire

Crossed the Tropic of Capricorn, again

The bizarre landscape of Namib-Naukluft Park

First stop Walvis Bay

Swakopmund, nice and clean city

Salty roads

Stopped at Zeila shipwreck before getting to cape cross

Cape Cross seal reserve, there was a ton of babies

Made our way inland to Uis where we slept at Daureb Isib Campsite, made it there in time for sunset

Road C35

On our way to Etosha National Park we stopped at Otjitotongwe Cheetah Guestfarm, highly recommended to interact with domesticated Cheetahs

We also had the opportunity to see wild Cheetahs, 3 cubs and a female

They also had a Leopard temporarily, they were trying to find a way to release him away from their farm

Made our way to Etosha National Park afterwards, since it was rain season, the animals were not very present, still managed to see nice stuff

The first lions

Second pride of lions we saw in Etosha National Park

Some random stuff

After 2 days without much actions in Etosha National Park we moved on to Maun, Botswana, we drove to Tsumkwe to visit a bushman village but there was nothing to see there, we continued to Botswana the next day and got to Maun where we took a door less helicopter ride over the Okavango Delta, it was amazing

We stayed at Audi Camp near Maun and the next day we drove north in Namibia’s direction, stopped along the way to look at the beginning of the Delta

Crossed the border to Namibia and visited Bwabwata National Park

Stayed at Nunda River Lodge with some company

Sunrise and continued visiting Bwabwata National Park, looking for elephants

Only saw elephant skulls

And some birds

Park road

Drove accros the Caprivi strip without seeing much, drove down to Livingstone’s Camp near Sangwali, very nice camping spot, the sunset was crazy

The next day we crossed back into Botswana in Ngoma, on the way to Kasane, finally some elephants showed up

Also some buffalos

A funky bird

Went to our camping at Big 5 Chobe Lodge and came back to look for more elephants in Chobe National Park, sure enough another one showed up

And then on the way back to the lodge, almost in the city, another one showed up

The next day it was time to really get in Chobe National Park and we came across and amazing elephant herd, around 40 elephants crossed our path, amazing experience


Baboon family

Plains of Chobe National Park

Birds of Chobe National Park

There was a croc farm near out lodge, not the best thing for photography but some impressive Nile crocodiles



Before leaving for Zambia we went to the Chobe National Park a last time were we saw a Yena

We stayed 2 days at Livingstone, first day was layover time, didn’t do much, the next day we visited the falls from the Zambian side

Then I took the helicopter tour of the falls

Later we went on the bridge that divides Zambia and Zimbabwe for a different view of the falls

The next day it was time to leave, but not without a dip in Angel’s pool on top of the falls, I highly recommend this activity, the price a is a little steep but well worth it, here’s the view from the Angel’s pool (Cellphone picture)

Amazing trip, I will be back for sure, for more then 2 weeks, if you have the chance to go, don’t hesitate!!
