  • The weather! Namibia has more days of sunshine than almost anywhere and without the humidity.

There are good campsites in most of the national parks where you can stay whilst going on safari and lots of adventure activities to make your holiday unforgettable.

Family Adventure

With so much to 'see and do' for everyone in the family, you can combine so much of interest and keep active in Namibia. Namibia is home to some of the most diverse activities of any country in Africa. Children don’t have to be stuck on a game vehicle every morning and afternoon but can enjoy all sorts of things such as climbing dunes, kayaking amongst seals, meeting Bushmen, viewing flamingos, tracking elephant, bartering for wooden animals in markets and of course time on safari.

The coastal wetlands at Walvis Bay has a huge array of sea birds and colonies of Cape Fur seals. Its coastal dunes are ideal for adventure activities such as sandboarding, parasailing and quadbiking, fun for all the family!
