Family Namibia

Namibia is one of the most brilliantly bonkers countries in Africa, and as such Namibia family holidays are suitably original and very, very fun.

Our Africa specialists are on hand to tailor-make your Namibia family holidays to exactly meet your needs, whether you want the emphasis to be on adventure, safari, cultural immersion or - ideally - the perfect blend of all three. In addition, all Original Travel clients benefit from our exclusive additional services, including fast track check-in and security at the airport, and lounge access even if you are flying economy. Then there are the fun packs designed by the hugely popular children's party people Sharky & George, and which we give to all children aged from three to ten, including games, challenges and quizzes about the destination for that all-important educational angle. Best of all, in Namibia you will have 24-hour access to our clued-up local Concierge to make any last-minute changes of plan or to offer advice throughout the trip.

So, what to do in situ on your Namibia family holiday? Namibia lends itself to road tripping, and we can provide you with a suitable family-friendly 4x4 for you to explore at your own pace, but with all your activities and accommodation booked in advance. It makes for a great combination of freedom and peace of mind, and we can suggest the many highlights to weave together on your trip.

All Namibia family holidays should include visits to the beautifully remote NamibRand desert and Sossusvlei to gawp at and climb the stunning giant sand dunes; the Skeleton Coast to see seal colonies and the bare bones shipwrecks after which the region is named; the ancient rock art created by San Bushmen and the wonderful safari spots of Etosha and Okonjima, famed for its big cat conservation programme.
