I enjoyed the tour very much. It is quite fast paced as there are 5,500km to cover, but you get to visit four countries. At one point you have five consecutive one night stops! So you are basically living out of your suitcase!
For me there were many highlights to the trip. Encountering a family of desert elephants early in the morning trooping through the grounds of Brandberg White Lady Lodge was a magical sight. In Etosha National Park we saw a cheater and her two youngsters lying in the shade very near to our truck. Then later a male lion salivating over a half eaten zebra!
Clambering up dune 45 early morning in Namibia and of course the glorious Victoria falls.
Our guide Charles and driver Ismael were a great team. They provided us with good food, kept us well informed and their skill and organisation ensured the trip ran smoothly .
The accommodation, at times quirky and at others luxurious did not disappoint.
I would not hesitate in recommending this trip.

This was our thirteenth trip with Explore & one of the best. Yes, the distances are long & dusty & it can be very hot, so come prepared & pick your time of year if this is an issue for you. It's hardly surprising if temperatures are high in November! in March/April, after the rains, it's cooler and the vegetation greener. Although animals are harder to spot then, we enjoyed wonderful views of groups of elephant in all the parks, lions in two, a cheetah with cubs in Etosha & herds of antelope everywhere. The birdlife was fantastic as were the families of hippo in Chobe. We were also enthralled when perhaps four hundred Cape Buffalo emerged from the forest to drink at the waterhole in front of Hwange Safari Lodge.

Although initially somewhat surprised at the large size of our truck/bus (Dugga Boy) it proved spacious & comfortable & was superbly driven by Ishmael throughout the 5,500 kilometre journey.

The group was great fun (12 of us) & Charles & Ishmael were always cheerful, patient, knowledgeable & informative on both the wildlife & the lives of the local people.

The accomodation was generally surprisingly comfortable and, eg, at Toshari Lodge, quite luxurious. Droksky's is also superb.The only disappointment was the rather noisy (road traffic) & less well run in Kwalape Lodge in Botswana.

Four countries in three weeks was a wonderful learning opportunity and in all four countries we found the people warm & welcoming.
Highlights were many & varied but Namibia stood out for its magical desert & coastal landscapes, interesting history from the ancient Khoisan rock carvings to the Herero march in Swakopmund & of, course the wildlife everywhere but perhaps especially in Etosha. As mentioned by a fellow traveller, the elephant experience while walking to breakfast at White Lady Lodge will live long in the memory. Victoria Falls (again do your research regarding water levels at different times of year) was quite simply breathtaking & tea at the Victoria Hotel a fitting end to a wonderful tour.

I think the itinerary would be truly excellent with a different hotel for the Chobe section & the addition of a cultural element, either with the option of visiting one of the cultural museums or possibly a visit to a village or even a homestay such as is on offer on some other trips.

A long journey but with lots of variety (although all the game drives are towards the end). Fantastic scenery influenced by Namibia's unique geology.
Camping sites were all very individual and far better than expected.
Would recommend Living Desert Tour at Swakopmund and Cycling Tour at Victoria Falls which were not mentioned as options.
Encounters with wildlife much more frequent and closer than anticipated
Take clothes/shoes that you are happy to give away to help Zimbabweans at end of tour.

Despite the fact that we booked the camping version of this trip by accident we did enjoy our holiday very much. The company was good. Although it entailed a lot of travelling this was comfortable with good breaks for food and sightseeing. The tour guide, driver and cook were all experts at their jobs as well as being very good company. We saw great scenery as well as copious numbers of animals and the Victoria Fall were an amazing climax to the whole trip

From Cape Town to Vic Falls in Zimbabwe we covered a lot of miles travelling in a truck along dusty roads. We got the hang of pitching and striking camp down to a fine art, eventually. Highlights were climbing the sand dunes in Namibia to see the sunrise, magical, and seeing the herd of elephants enjoying themselves in the Chobe river and the matriarch calling them to order.
The 4 Safaris were all different with lots of photo opportunities.
It's worth doing some research before you go, or at least taking a guide book, as information was sparse with our guide.

Long drives on bumpy un-made up roads in a vehicle not particularly comfortable. The A/C broke down and the heat was colossal - on most days 108F. max. in the deserts. Apparently the heat was more than normal at this time of year. Saw plenty of animals and birds. The highlight was seeing Victoria Falls. The accommodations were, mostly, good and pleasant. Table Mountain off-limits due to inclement weather.

From our lodge in Sable Sands in Hwange National Park we saw around 100 elephants, some only a few days old coming down to watering hole in sight of our lodge; a sight we shall never forget.

Highlights were the river trips from Drotskys camp, just our group in 2 boats, saw amongst other wildlife, sea eagles and crocodiles VERY close up. Wildlife did not disappoint throughout the trip and the knowledge and advice provided by our tour leader was impressive. It really was, for us, a once in a lifetime adventure. We imagined what it would have been like staying in lodges, but listening to the dawn chorus from our little tent was priceless!
