Namibia Family Safaris

Namibia Family Safaris

From the huge dunes of Sossusvlei to the game rich salt pans of Etosha National park and the wild Skeleton Coast, Namibia is our of our favourite destinations for adventurous families. Namibia can be surprisingly good value, is relatively safe and stable and offers a fantastically balanced holiday to please all members of the family.

The most economical option for families in Namibia is a self drive camping safari, Namibia has a network of superb small camps in stunning locations. Two weeks rooftop camping for a family of four typically costs in the region of $6000 (£4000) excluding international flights an is one of the best family adventures money can buy. We also offer scheduled group safaris specifically for families on regular dates during high season in addition to more luxurious options with private driver-guides, internal flights and luxury camps and lodges.

Namibia is at its best coinciding with Western Hemisphere summer holidays (read more on Namibia's seasons here), so it really pays to plan and book well in advance of your trip. The biggest drawback of Namibia for families are the driving times involved, but part of the adventure in Namibia is most definitely the journey through the stunning landscapes. Because of this, we tend to recommend Namibia for slightly older families, with kids 8 or older, it is also perfect for adventurous families with teenagers. When designing Namibia trips for families we will try to keep driving distances to a necessary minimum.

  • The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
    There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
    Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
    Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

    MissingWilliam Kearns reviewing 11 Day Mount Kenya Trek and Masai Mara Safari Combined on 29 October 2018

  • The Namibia trip was fantastic!

    Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).

    As for specifics:

    OKONJIMA
    This place was the best!
    Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
    We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
    If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.

    EMANYA
    The only (slight) disappointment.
    Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.

    OKAUKEUJO
    Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
    The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.

    DORO NAWAS
    Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
    A nice stopping point on the drive.

    SPITZKOPPE
    An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
    Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
    The staff was on par with Okonjima.
    2 days were perfect.

    Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
    They represent Tourdust well!

    Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

    MissingEarl Wong reviewing Northern Namibia Highlights - Self Drive on 17 October 2018

  • We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
    Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
