For the sort of adventure that children will never forget, try this family safari through the wilds of northern Namibia. Kaokoland is a vast and empty land, yet one that’s astoundingly magical. And don’t be fooled; it might not look like there’s much amid the desertscapes, but this nine-day trip offers plenty of thrilling encounters and exciting opportunities for kids.
The trip begins with one of Namibia’s best wildlife viewing experiences in the private Etosha Heights Reserve, where tracking white rhino and watching predators stalk across the savannah is the name of the game. Then, it’s across to the Hoanib Valley to look for desert-adapted elephant, before heading even further west to the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean and the eerily beautiful Skeleton Coast. A truly unforgettable trip whether you’re eight or 80, we think you’ll agree.
This itinerary can be done as a fly-in, guided, or self-drive safari.
