Southern Africa Explorer

An excellent, value for money trip. My sister was especially impressed, having little previous experience of camping. The office did an excellent job dealing with our booking.

Namibia Family Adventure

The most beautiful sand dunes in the world, spectacular views of vast desert landscapes and unique wildlife are all part of this diverse itinerary. The trip has been specially designed to suit families; driving distances have been kept to a minimum and the places visited have all been chosen with a mind for activities that will appeal to adults and children alike. Highlights include stunning scenery in the Namib Naukluft Park, watching the changing colours of sunrise over Sossusvlei dunes, the seaside town of Swakopmund, dolpin cruise at Walvis Bay, ancient Bushmen rock art in the 'koppies' (rock outcrops) near the Brandberg Mountains (where Namibia's highest peak is found), and game viewing in Etosha National Park. Here it is possible to watch wildlife come to drink at floodlit waterholes at any time of day or night. There is also the opportunity to meet cheetahs up close and personal at the Cheetah Conservation Fund property and Educational Centre. Camping is the perfect way to involve the whole family and to enjoy the highlights of Namibia at a gentle pace.
