 Omaheke is also hunter’s paradise. Experience something new by making us your destination! The Trans Kalahari Highway runs through Omaheke and is the main link between Namibia and South Africa. It is the main access to the interior of Namibia and all its tourist attractions.
Via the Trans Kalahari Highway, it is a day’s drive from Johannesburg along the well-maintained tarred road. It is also a day away from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and from the world-renowned Etosha Game Reserve in Namibia. Travellers along this route will find convenient service centres and fuelling points along the entire route.
The Trans Kalahari route runs from the Gauteng Province in South Africa into Botswana and connects at Buitepos, one of Namibia’s border-posts, through to the port of Walvis Bay. Besides the scenic wonders, multiplicity of wildlife and the vast open spaces, this route will also save you approximately 400km between Windhoek and Pretoria.
 Botswana is an exhilarating destination. The Okavango Delta is the jewel of Botswana and is one of the most precious natural resources in the world, enriched with stunning diversity of bird and animal species. The endless plains of the Central Kalahari, the salt pans and the riverine environment of Chobe National Park are equally blessed.
 Kaokoland is one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Southern Africa. It is a world of incredible mountain scenery, home of the desert dwelling elephant, black rhino and giraffe and the Himba people. The rugged landscape is especially attractive during the early morning and late afternoon when it is transformed into softly glowing pastel shades. The south of the area is characterised by rugged mountains with a number of watercourses, but north the scenery is dominated by table-top koppies. The well-known Epupa Falls with a massive water drop of 60m is a popular destination in this region. Visits to the local Himba tribes offer an insight into their uniquely adapted lifestyle.
