11 Days Namibia Family Holidays

Tour Details


Discover highlights of Namibia on this family holiday visiting Etosha National Park, Swakopmund, Sossusvlei – at your own pace on this 10-day self-drive adventure.


Distinguished by the Namib Desert along its Atlantic Ocean coast, the south-west country of Namibia is home to endless desert terrain, a night sky likened to impressionist paintings and diverse wildlife.

Sparsely populated, the southern African country is one of the most breath-taking on the continent and promises a truly remote getaway.

Its wildlife offering includes the biggest population of free-roaming cheetahs to be found anywhere as well close to 100 other mammal species, all best observed at the pre-eminent Etosha National Park.

Complementing its vast landscapes and animal offering, are its alluring cities and friendly people. With its strong German influences observed through gothic cathedrals, and large European population, Windhoek is much more than the country’s capital and largest city, and is the perfect place to begin or end a Namibia trip.


Day 1,Okonjima Plains Camp, Okonjima Nature Reserve

Okonjima Nature Reserve Midway between the spectacular Etosha National Park and the capital city of Windhoek, lies the well-known Okonjima Nature Reserve. The 22 000 ha nature reserve is home to AfriCAT, a carnivore sanctuary, which gives the captive cats a second chance to be released back into the wild and become completely independent hunters in a protected area right in the middle of commercial cattle farmland. Visitors can enjoy a stay at a variety of excellent accommodation options including everything from luxury villas to secluded camping. Enjoy thrilling cat tracking guided safaris, leopard-spotting, off-road night drives and learn about local San culture along the Bushmen trail. Day Itinerary On arrival in Windhoek, collect your rental vehicle and drive to the Okonjima Main Camp. Settle in and unwind in the camp's swimming pool or simply relax on the wooden veranda.

Day 2,Okonjima Plains Camp, Okonjima Nature Reserve

Day Itinerary Be sure to visit the Africat project to learn about the local carnivores.

Day 3,Andersson's Camp, Ongava Private Game Reserve

Day Itinerary Enjoy breakfast at Okonjima Main Camp before heading to Ongava Private Game Reserve on the border of the Etosha National Park. Check into Andersson's Camp before beginning your exploration of this wildlife-rich area - although you don't have to go very far to see animals: sip on a refreshing drink as you sit on the veranda which overlooks the much-frequented waterhole.

Day 4,Andersson's Camp, Ongava Private Game Reserve

Day Itinerary Enjoy self-drive excursions through Etosha National Park - the park is easy to drive around and has an excellent blend of classic savannah game species and desert specialists, and it's a destination famous for predators, black rhino and elephant.

Day 5,Andersson's Camp, Ongava Private Game Reserve

Day Itinerary The surprising mix of peace and adrenaline, the quiet of the bush and the sudden burst of energy as wild animals congregate at waterholes. This is the magic of the African bush, where you experience the unexpected.

Day 6,Doro Nawas Camp, Twyfelfontein

Day Itinerary Make your way after breakfast to the rugged Damaraland region where you'll stay at Doro Nawas Camp for two nights. It's a desolate region at first glance but it's also an area of great beauty and has surprisingly good wildlife too. Cool off in the swimming pool or enjoy a drink at the bar before watching the sunset from the roof - and once it's dark, enjoy some spectacular stargazing.

Day 7,Doro Nawas Camp, Twyfelfontein

Day Itinerary Doro Nawas Camp is located in the dry Aba-Huab River Valley, within the Doro !Nawas Conservancy in central Damaraland, and commands spectacular views of the Etendeka Mountains to the north and the red sandstone cliffs of Twyfelfontein in the south. Take a trip to Twyfelfontein where you can see ancient San (Bushman) rock engravings, part of the largest collection of prehistoric rock art in Africa. Enjoy game viewing along dry riverbeds and tangled thickets too, and keep an eye out for elusive desert-adapted elephants and other wildlife in this wild but rewarding region.

Day 8,Swakopmund Guesthouse, Swakopmund

Day Itinerary This morning you'll drive to Swakopmund Guesthouse in the quaint, German-colonial town of Swakopmund. There are plenty of adventure activities on hand in Namibia's holiday playground - quadbiking on nearby sand dunes, sky diving and sandboarding to name a few - but you can also wander the friendly streets and visit boutique craft shops, coffee shops and cafes.

Day 9,Kulala Desert Lodge, Sossusvlei

Day Itinerary Enjoy breakfast and perhaps one last activity in Swakopmund before leaving the coast behind. Marvel at the rugged, lunar-like conditions of the Kuiseb Valley as you drive through the vast Namib Desert to your accommodation - Kulala Desert Lodge. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the swimming pool or relax on your chalet's rooftop veranda and take in the sunset over the desert plains.

Day 10,Kulala Desert Lodge, Sossusvlei

Day Itinerary Wake up early and embark on a guided trip to Sossusvlei to experience the famous red dunes up close. At up to 300 metres high, these dunes are said to be some of the world's tallest - and you can find out for yourself: stop at Dune 45 and climb to the top. Set out with your guide in the afternoon for a nature walk around the lodge's private reserve.

Day 11,Departure

Day Itinerary After your last morning activity, it is time to say goodbye and head back to Windhoek Airport. Return the rental vehicle and board your outbound flight.
