Discover the desert TAC

Namibia   |  South Africa

Africa – pictures of endless deserts, beautiful coastlines and strong warriors come to mind. But here, in Africa’s south-western corner, there is even more to see.

We start our discovery of South Africa and Namibia in one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Cape Town. However, we must leave the remarkable museums and the excellent shopping possibilities and restaurants behind, because we have a lot more sights ahead of us. We start with a visit to Hermanus, where we can hopefully see some whales playing in the bay. Then we continue our journey towards the North. The famous South African wine region around Franschhoek is on our agenda, before we cross the Namibian border.

Incredible wonders of nature are lining up for us to discover: Fish River Canyon, Namib-Naukluft National Park, Sossusvlei with the largest sand dunes in the world, ... the list goes on and on. Also, lots of history can be found in the cities on our route, like Walvis Bay, Swakopmund and Windhoek. All kinds of curves, from switchbacks to long sweepers, but also all kinds of surfaces, from great asphalt to exciting gravel are waiting for you. And in the evening, after all the daily events and experiences, you can sit back, enjoy the wonderful South African and Namibian cuisine, have a glass of local wine – and chat with your new friends about all the amazing things you have discovered on this magical tour.
