Begin this nine day, 3400 kilometer, rail journey of South Africa and Namibia with discovering of perhaps yet another ‘Great Star of Africa’ in the Big Hole. Following the ‘discovery’, passengers will be traversed to the spectacular Fish River Canyon – second in size and grandeur to the Grand Canyon.
After border formalities, continue your passage across the Kalahari Desert, to the lively cosmopolitan capital, Windhoek, with a reminiscence of German flavour. In comfort and leisure traverse past the red sand dunes of the Namib Desert, while preparations have begun for a game encounter in Etosha National Park. Travelers end this epic adventure with a journey to the neat and quaint town of Swakopmund.
