Southern Africa


A safari Holiday from Windhoek in Namibia to Victoria falls in Zimbabwe


Our African Walkabout Safari offers a truly unique experience whereby you will discover three of the jewels of Southern Africa - Namibia, Botswana and Victoria Falls. The highlights are Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, Twyfelfontein, Etosha National Park, Western Caprivi, Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls.



Although Namibia is situated on the Atlantic coast of Africa the general landscape is dominated by the oldest desert in the world - the Namib. The surrounding areas are dry and visually impressive with interesting flora and fascinating geological formations. In Namibia we come “face to face” with a variety of big game - elephants, lions, giraffes, zebra etc. It is a once in a lifetime experience seeing these wild animals in their natural habitat.

Botswana is known to be hot and dry, except for the lush oasis beside the Caprivi. Largely off the beaten track, Botswana is a haven for wildlife - especially elephants.

Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world, making it one of the world’s “Seven Natural Wonders”. In the 1800’s Victoria Falls was described by the nearby Kololo as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ which means “the smoke that thunders” - illustrating the powerful forces of Victoria Falls! David Livingstone is believed to be the first explorer to have discovered Victoria Falls; in 1860 he spread the word about his travels there and soon after it became a popular destination.



Our Hotels and Cuisine


Our accommodation includes permanent camps, bush cabins, chalets in a Reserve Park and the luxury of an Eco Lodge on the edge of Africa's highest sand dunes.

All accommodation has unsuits. Most of our meals are at our lodges but sometimes our guides prepare our dinner on the campfire and we dine under the stars - with a dazzling display of the southern hemisphere night sky.

Feedback from previous guests

Guided Walking HolidaysAnother great trip from WGA, Really enjoyed my travels in Namabia, along the sometimes long and dusty roads seeing and experiencing the real Namabia. Some great animal viewing thanks to our wonderful guide Norbert along with amazing African sunsets almost every night. Seeing and visiting happy children that don't have much in their schools and villages, lunch under at tree in the middle of somewhere, happy faces and smiles everywhere we went, swimming pools with great views over plains and where elephants and giraffes drink and roam. As our guide summed up on his t-shirt that he gets for himself every trip - There's more to Africa than just the animals. Thanks Graeme for another memorable trip."

Guided Walking HolidaysWOW WOW WOW Another amazing trip with Walkabout (Graeme and local guide Nobert). We didn't really know what to expect from Namibia and it gave us heaps: fabulous and varying landscapes including the incredible Namib desert, wildlife from day 1 (we saw 48 animals and lots of birds too), and of course the local people. Walkabout had once again selected interesting boutique and scenic accommodation which was in the main off the beaten track. We had a great group of fellow travellers and enjoyed each and every day including special presentations from locals to some of our crew who experienced wedding anniversaries (54 years, 45 years and birthday). Unforgettable experience".

Guided Walking HolidaysGreat trip. Surprised, especially by Namibia. Vast deserts, long roads, few people. And the animals! Really well looked after, realising how long some of the days were. Everyone remained calm even after hours of corrugations, dust and desert. Dry river beds. Startling horizons and outstanding sunsets. People seemed at least happy and yet there was no doubt they were poor in our terms."

Guided Walking HolidaysIan and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being in the wild with the most exotic animals in the world. We were not impressed by the township of Swakopmund and also the Himba Tribe. We felt a little intimidated. All other accommodations and national parks were magic. Seeing our first springbok and then giraffe and elephant, so exciting. Lots and lots of photos were taken. The Hippopotamus made an impression on us, watching them poke their ears and eyes out above the water as if to say, Hello! We loved the journey with Graeme and Pine our guide. The fabulous suggestion of Walkabout Gourmet taking on a project to ensure clean water to the school we visited while staying at the Kaisosi River Lodge, hopefully will be launched. Graeme and guests appeared very enthusiastic. Thank you and enjoy the journey.
