This trip invites you to explore Namibia from the Namib desert to Victoria Falls, through Damaraland, Etosha National Park and the Caprivi. In 4x4 and on foot we discover the hidden secrets of the desert and we meet some charismatic people of this country such as the Damaras and the Himbas who have adapted themselves to a fragile and austere environment.

Then we cross over to the north-west through the Caprivi strip
