NamibRand, Namib Naukluft, Spitzkoppe and Etosha

From towering red dunes and shifting shadows to encounters with desert-adapted wildlife, the Namib Desert is an infinite and peculiar place that often leaves visitors filled with wonder. This family safari transports you from one untamed wilderness to another, through some of Namibia’s remotest reserves where almost zero light pollution creates night skies littered only with stars. Family activities like game drives, nature walks, quad biking, hot-air ballooning and horse riding are all possibilities in this land of endless horizons.


Day 1 – 2: Fly to Windhoek in Namibia

Your Namibian family adventure starts in Windhoek where you’ll stay at Olive Grove just a 5-minute drive from the city centre. The atmosphere here is quaint and cozy with amenities that include an open-air terrace, swimming pool and an inviting garden. Home-cooked meals are prepared in the open-plan kitchen and served in the main dining area or al fresco on the large veranda. Families of up to five can be accommodated in the ensuite Luxury Rooms which are each decorated in their own style. Slip into the lodge’s sparkling swimming pool with a refreshing sundowner or visit the Wellness Room for an invigorating massage treatment.

Day 2 – 5: Fly to Kwessi Dunes in NamibRand Nature Reserve

Sustainably built in one of only two Dark Sky reserves in the world, Kwessi Dunes allows you to disconnect from your devices while reconnecting with your family and the natural world. Twelve air-conditioned chalets dot the dunes, each with forever views over the vast desert expanse. Each bedroom has a separate stargazer room open to the elements above, ideal for watching the celestial show in the darkest of dark skies. Guided family activities for exploring the reserve include game drives, quad biking and nature walks, where you’ll get to see this otherworldly terrain from different perspectives. Discover the desert-adapted wildlife of the NamibRand, fascinating rock formations, and the welwitschia – Namibia’s national plant that can survive in these harsh conditions for up to 2,000 years. For an additional cost, hot-air ballooning, horse riding and scenic helicopter flights are also options in the area your family can enjoy.

Day 5 – 7: Drive to Dead Valley Lodge in Namib-Naukluft National Park

One of only two stayovers within the Namib-Naukluft National Park, Dead Valley Lodge provides direct access to the world’s most photographed dunes at Sossusvlei. Your climate-controlled tented chalet affords you panoramic vistas of the Namib where desert antelope roam the dunes. Nature walks will get you up close to smaller creatures like lizards, geckos and even chameleons that find a way to survive out here. The eco lodge’s design takes cues from the natural desert surroundings, providing an oasis for feet-up relaxation in the Namib Desert. Between admiring the stark beauty of this enchanting desert landscape, trips to nearby attractions such as Sossusvlei, Dead Vlei, Dune 45 and Sesriem Canyon are available at an additional cost. Here you can take to the skies in a hot-air balloon, go horse riding and explore the undulating dunes on a guided quad bike tour.

Day 7 – 9: Fly to Spitzkoppe Tented Camp in Spitzkoppe Mountain Reserve

Set idyllically on the banks of a dry river with the ‘Matterhorn of Namibia’ as the stunning backdrop, Spitzkoppe Tented Camp is the ultimate desert retreat. Family tents can accommodate up to 4 guests and come equipped with a private patio and ensuite bathroom. Your family can set the pace, keeping as busy or relaxed as you would like with options for hiking, mountain biking, climbing and horse riding. There’s even a 500-yard zip line that offers epic views of the desert terrain. For an enriching cultural experience, take a guided drive or walk to the Spitzkoppe bushman rock paintings which date back at least 2,000 years.

Day 9 – 13: Fly to Onguma Bush Camp in Etosha National Park

Situated on a private game reserve on Etosha National Park’s eastern border, safari-chic Onguma Bush Camp comprises just seven tents overlooking a busy watering hole. Families are afforded access to Onguma’s own wildlife-rich reserve as well as neighboring Etosha, promising a truly remarkable safari experience. Each elegantly appointed tent is equipped with a bathroom, indoor and outdoor shower, luxurious bath and a viewing deck. Get out on game drives or walk age-old animal migration routes through the bush with an armed guide for a sensory experience at ground level. Wildlife you might encounter include the critically-endangered black rhino and bucket-list species like the scimitar-horned oryx, a particularly rare species of Namibia’s national animal. Camp amenities with vantage points for game viewing include a raised dining deck and swimming pool.
