14 Day Cape to Kgalagadi Safari Adventure is a new route on our portfolio. This safari is the perfect combination of the less travelled West Coast and Namaqualand. Our Safari has added value in combining the Richtersveld and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park during our visit. We will be visiting two cross-border conservation initiatives and explore the road less travelled.
The west coast offers some of the most pristine beaches in South Africa. Along the cold Atlantic are two track roads and small communities. The Namaqualand region is well known for one of the most massive succulent biospheres in the world. These plants are flowering during August and September, all depending on the rains of course. You can expect vast open landscapes with small communities and traditional farms along the way.
The cold Atlantic is known for rough seas and shipwrecks. The regions are famous for some of the largest diamond mining industries in South Africa. A mineral rich, arid and vast landscapes await your journey towards the Kalahari.
The Diamond Coast and Richtersveld are known for spectacular rock formations and have one of the largest collections of endemic succulents in the world. The west coast of South Africa is well known for the traditional fishing communities and arid landscapes.
The 14 day Cape to Kgalagadi Safari is unique in discovering the hidden jewels of the Northern Cape and Namaqualand. This Adventure is exploring the more arid and desert dwellings of South Africa.
