BEST OF BOTSWANA
On the 31st May – 17th June 2018, we will be hosting another fundraising adventure through the breathtaking country of Namibia.
On this fully supported camping adventure our team handles all the logistics of planning the route and booking the best campsites and ensures you have fun in a safe and well controlled environment.
Drive yourself in a fully equipped 4x4 vehicle following our lead vehicle as you discover wild and wonderful places in Namibia on a 17 day experience you will never forget!
Arrive in Windhoek to get acquainted with your touring 4x4 – which is fully geared for camping – and head out into the desert!
ABOUT THE EXPEDITION
This fundraising expedition starts in Windhoek, Namibia and finishes in Kasane, Botswana. The reconnoitred and supervised route, in self-contained 4WD roof top tented vehicles, will see you camping and cooking under amazingly clear African skies. Magnificent vistas, wide open spaces, crystal-clear night skies and top game viewing are all part of this incredible journey.
The route takes us through open desert landscapes, sand dunes and national parks famed for game viewing and sightseeing.
We will visit the world renowned Sossusvlei, with towering sand dunes, the wild Kunene region – home of the desert adapted black rhino and desert elephants, Etosha National Park as well as the Chobe river in Botswana.
Travelling with a maximum of 9 vehicles, the group will be led by Stew Nolan and his team who will provide daily briefings and assistance to guide you through the desert landscape. Stew is an experienced guide and wildlife photographer and has accompanied all D Tours trips thus far.
The motive for this tour is to raise funds for Save The Rhino Trust Namibia. Save the Rhino Trust Namibia has worked tirelessly to protect the desert-adapted black rhino of the Kunene and Erongo regions. From the point of near extinction, the rhino population has rebounded, and SRT has played a huge role in this success.
SRT operates in a remote, rugged area of more than a million hectares, with few fences, no national park status and no controls over who goes in or out. Working closely with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, local communities and NGOs, the dedicated teams of trackers go out on daily patrols to monitor this last truly free-ranging population of black rhino in the world.
As with all Dtours expeditions, 100% of your donation goes towards the cause, in this case; Save The Rhino Trust Namibia.
