Family Safaris

Namibia with kids

As parents we do know the needs when traveling with children. In the following we selected the tours that should be suitable for children, too. We chose safaris with an eye on short driving distances, lots of game-viewing activities or offers to join in as well as children-friendly accommodation during the trip.

If you have any questions concerning your family holidays in Namibia please do not hesitate to ask. We are most happy to help!

DAY 2 Early morning in Mahango National Park we’ll go stalking elephants, buffaloes and rare antelope like sitatungas, roans and sables. After breakfast we head to eastern Caprivi, arriving early afternoon at our lodge on the Kwando River. Dusk is spent on a river boat watching the reeds for birdlife.

DAY 3 We wander through the reeds and greens wards of the Kwando at sunrise. By afternoon will be in the Susuwe National Park, a pristine and diverse piece of Africa. Following sandy tracks with our 4x4 we make our way through Big Five country.

DAY 4 We turn westwards again in the early morning, along the Caprivi Strip back to the lodge on the Okavango River. Later we’ll visit the Buffalo National Park, where huge herds of buffalo roam. Our travels end back at the lodge to reminisce about the rewarding day.

DAY 5 Today we head southwards to the Etosha National Park, entering at the old fort Namutoni and spending the afternoon trawling the largest national park in the world. At sunset we leave the Park to spend the night at our lodge on the perimeter.
DAY 6
At start of day we are back searching for elephants taking a bath or lions resting in the shade after a successful hunt. After this early game show we leave for Kambaku Safari Lodge.

DAY 1 We leave for Namibia’s most impressive national park, Etosha. It covers over 22 000 square kilometres and more than 113 mammal species can be found in its grass, bush and tree savannah. Watch out for herds of springbuck and zebra. With luck we will see elephants and after a picnic lunch we continue our search for rhinos and lions. When the sun drops into the horizon, we’ll be on our way to our lodge.

DAY 2 Travelling  past  Outjo  and  Khorixas,  we reach the bizarre landscape of Damaraland and pause at the Petrified Forest, claimed to be 240-300 millions of years old. One can still make out the growth rings on many of the fossilised tree trunks. It is thought that the ‘forest’ hails from Angola and was swept there by a huge flood. As we continue, we may see desert elephants in the sparsely populated area. At Twyfelfontein there are some 2 500 rock paintings and engravings to explore and transport you back to an age so difficult to understand today.

DAY 3 Atlantic, here we come! On our way to the coastal town of Swakopmund we stop at the Cape Cross Seal Colony. Thousands of animals live off the  Skeleton Coast, drawn by the fish resources of the cold Benguela stream. After a memorable trip through the moon landscape of the Skeleton Coast Park, we reach Swakopmund by nightfall.

DAY 4 Our day starts with a boat trip on the Atlantic Ocean. Accompanied by porpoises and seals, experience the sea air while sipping champagne and eating fresh oysters. You are free to spend the afternoon as you wish. Swakopmund and vicinity offer numerous activities.

DAY 5 The morning sees us leaving either for Kambaku or Windhoek where we wander through the main street before heading for the Hosea Kutako Intern. Airport.
