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.

  • We had a wonderful time! Our transfers (besides a bit of a wait when we arrived) were smooth. The gentleman that drove us to and from the airport also drove us to our hike and he was very nice and helpful, clean car and very accommodating.
    Our tour guide on the first day, Mandy, was charming and insightful. It was a slow day in the markets but we appreciated the space and gave us a chance to hear all about the Souks. The gentlemen who was with her was a wealth of knowledge and both did a very nice job!
    Our hike was awesome and our guide was great- he even took us to a cool waterfall and took great care of us; lunch in the mountains was delicious!
    The hotel was so lovely and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was great and the rooms very comfortable!
    I did a good amount of damage in the market (often accused of being Berber;) and truly hope to be back next Spring... maybe a girls trip or perhaps I’ll bring my kiddos!
    Thank you for organizing such a nice getaway for my husband and I; we will confidently recommend Tourdust to our friends!!

  • We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.

    Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.

    Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.

    Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!

    One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.

    Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

  • Thanks for all your help in making the arrangements, everything went so smoothly from landing in Jo’burg to departing a week later.

    We all had a fantastic time, Kirsty (our youngest) was able to go on all the game drives and we were very well looked after both on the drives and back at the lodge. The food was great, staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them (e.g. providing hot milk for Kirsty at bedtime). The kids all enjoyed the rock pool during the day and we all loved the game drives.

    We were lucky enough to see all the big 5, with the additions of Cheetah & Wild Dogs. I think it was the second to last day before we managed to see some Hippo (and finally I’ve been able to take some photos of them - I have only ever seen them at night before). We had the adventure of being caught up with some Lionesses stalking a herd of Zebra (one of the younger Lionesses went a bit early & scattered the herd).

    We’re certainly aiming to go on safari again although it will be a while before we save enough to go again (maybe the kids will be taking us next time!)
