From the vast plains to deserts, dunes, rivers and waterfalls, unique wildlife, jaw-dropping big open skies and the indescribable feeling of freedom riding the roads of Namibia & Botswana…Desert to Delta, a 16 days action-packed adventure!
Starting in Windhoek, we make our way towards Sossusvlei to explore the hidden gems of the desert.
We visit the deserted diamond town near the coast. We ride along the Fish River Canyon. We interact with Cheetahs. We cross over to the Kalahari to meet the San people and learn about their traditions, survival and semi-nomadic lifestyle.
Next up, the inland delta of the Okavango. Bikes exchanged for planes and we fly over the Delta for 1 hour on a scenic flight, exploring the rich and abundant wildlife from the region.
Then off to the Makgadikigadi pans, riding into the big nothing, to overnight under the stars.
Finally we go north towards the mighty Zambezi and the ‘Smoke that Thunders’ , Victoria Falls, to complete our unforgettable experience.

Understanding the local exchange rate
Before travelling to a new destination, it’s essential to consider the exchange rate of the country you’ll be visiting. This allows you to determine how much the currency from your country of residence is worth in the country you are travelling to. This will influence your options for activities, accommodation and transportation. Typically, the rand is a slightly weaker currency than many of its counterparts. This usually enables visitors to enjoy the perk of receiving good value for their expenses here!
