Day 1
Fly overnight to Johannesburg.
Day 2
Connect with a short onward flight to Windhoek, where you'll be greeted and driven to your hotel in the suburbs. Your 4WD hire car will be delivered this afternoon and you'll be briefed on the routes and driving in Namibia. This evening you might want to sample Joe's Beerhouse, an extremely family-friendly place to grab a steak or burger.
Day 3
Driving north today, you'll stop at the private Okonjima reserve for a guided afternoon introduction to the Africat Foundation and its majestic big cats. After the activity, it's a short drive north-east for a one night stay at a friendly lodge.

Today it's on to Etosha, for a two night stay in a family chalet at one of the government operated restcamps inside the park. The waterhole wildlife action here is simply sensational – without you having to move a muscle!
Day 5
You can explore Etosha under your own steam, but you might also want to book a guided afternoon/evening game drive.
Day 6
Today's drive takes you south to Damaraland, where you'll stay for two nights at a laid-back lodge styled as an African village. Children will love the swimming pool and the various arty scarecrows within the grounds!

Climbing huge orange dunes, kayaking in the Atlantic with seals leaping over your boat, watching elephants come to drink at waterholes and getting unfeasibly close to relatively tame cheetah and leopard. This sounds like a dream holiday for young adventurers, and Namibia’s family friendly highlights have now been bolstered with various accommodations aimed at families. And with no malaria in the main hotspots, Namibia represents the perfect family introduction to Africa.
