Namibia family safaris
When it comes to family holidays, you’d be hard pressed to beat somewhere like Namibia; fantastic wildlife, hands on interaction with local communities, educational conservation programs and, to top it all off, some of the most awe-inspiring scenery in the entire world. A long-time favourite with South African families; it has everything from game drives and kayaking to sand-boarding the highest dunes is the world, so you’re bound to find something amazing for each and every family member.
There are direct overnight flights from the UK to Windhoek and just a 2 hour time difference, so you won’t have to battle with jet lag on your first day. Despite its vastness, Namibia is very easy to travel with a great infrastructure and there are lots of small family friendly and family run lodges to stay at.
You can also travel Namibia via self-drive, great for a bit of self-exploration and the freedom to stop when and where you want en-route. The roads are well maintained and pretty much empty for a majority of the time.
