Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Namibia is a year round destination, although the best time to visit Namibia is from May to September as the temperature is tolerably cool, especially at night. The optimum game viewing times are between June and November. The land will have dried out meaning animals must again come to waterholes to drink. Summer (November to April) also known as the rainy season is best time to travel to Namibia for bird watching as migratory birds (both intra-African and Palaearctic) flock into the park's many habitats after the summer rains.

Namibia is a true adventure playground and the perfect destination for an active teenage family adventure. Teens will love the activities, from quad biking, sand-boarding, kayaking with a seal colony and tracking rhinos as well as the incredible scenery that Namibia is so well known for.

  1. Fly into Windhoek

  2. Days 1-2: Windhoek

    Start your incredible family adventure through Namibia with a short stop off in Windhoek where you can relax and pick up your hire car to begin this epic holiday.

    Accommodation: Galton House (1 night)

  3. Days 2-4: Sossusvlei

    Driving a 4x4, you’ll travel south to the iconic red sand dunes of Sossusvlei, the ultimate introduction to Namibia. Race each other to the top of Big Daddy dune, then slide down the sand into Dead Vlei pan. Back at your lodge, teens have the option to burn off more steam on horseback rides and hiking trails. If you’re after a real family treat, rise early before the sun one morning to catch a hot air balloon flight to get unbeatable views over the dunes (this is an extra cost).

    Accommodation: Desert Homestead Outpost (2 nights)

  4. Days 4-6: Swakopmund

    Your next stop is Swakopmund, located on the coast this area is full of adventures and action-packed experiences which the whole family can enjoy. We recommend you get up early one morning to head out on a kayak where you can paddle amongst the barking seal colony at Walvis Bay. Take a guided trip to the Kuiseb River Delta, exploring prehistoric dwelling sites where you can check out fossilised footprints of elephant, giraffe and rhino as well as enjoying the adrenaline rush of quad biking or sandboarding down the towering sand dunes.

    Accommodation: Cornerstone Apartment - Atlantik Sicht (2 nights)

  5. Days 6-8: Damaraland

    Heading north you will continue up to Damaraland where you will be greeted by an incredible rocky landscape. As one of the most scenic areas in Namibia, Damaraland is rugged, untamed and seems infinite at times. Staying in this area allows plenty of time to explore, as well as the opportunity to find some of the desert-adapted animals that have made it their home. With self-guided walks possible in this area, families can head out and explore by themselves.

    Accommodation: Camp Kipwe (2 nights)

  6. Days 8-11: Skeleton Coast

    Your journey continues up the Atlantic seaboard to the Skeleton Coast where you will spend three nights at Shipwreck Lodge. This unique lodge overlooks the rugged coastline which is famous for its number of shipwrecks, and you’ll be please to find your room has followed suit and is designed to resemble a shipwreck. The nearby Hoarusib River provides a rare source of water in this barren landscape, making it home to some truly thrilling wildlife encounters, including desert-adapted lion who’ve even been spotted on the beach hunting seals. Explore the shipwrecks, go fishing, and enjoy being one of the few families on the planet lucky enough to visit this remote corner of Africa.

    Accommodation: Shipwreck Lodge (3 nights)

  7. Days 11-13: Damaraland

    As you leave the hauntingly beautiful Skeleton Coast behind you will head south back into Damaraland. Staying at Desert Rhino Camp in the huge Palmwag Concession offers a completely different Damaraland experience. While the area still offers all of the charms and scenery of Damaraland, this concession also strives to protect one of the largest free-ranging populations of the critically engendered desert-adapted black rhino in Africa. Staying on this concession affords the opportunity to head out on nature drives, and also on foot to track the black rhino.

    Accommodation: Desert Rhino Camp (2 nights)

  8. Days 13-15: Ongava Private Game Reserve

    From Desert Rhino you will head towards Etosha National Park where you will stay in the wildlife-rich Ongava Game Reserve.

  9. Days 15-17: Central Highlands

    Last but by no means least you’ll spend a couple of nights on the Okonjima reserve, learning about AfriCat and their big cat conservation whilst you get up close to cheetah, leopard and wild dog that are found on the reserve. A great opportunity for your teenage children to really see wildlife conservation in action.
