This incredible family adventure takes you to on safari to some of the world's best game reserves.

Fly from Dublin to Namibia and meet your tour leaders on arrival in Windhoek. Drive to Omaruru Game Reserve where you will enjoy an African safari for the next 2 days.

The following morning, enjoy a guided tour in an open truck safari around the Omaruru Game Reserve. Here we will spend approx. 3 hours in search of the various African wildlife. This is the perfect season to see wildlife as they are dependant on water in the dry season and therefore don’t spread too much around the area.

Included today is also an activity to watch the cheetah being fed Upon arrival back at the lodge enjoy the day at your leisure, in the pool or sitting by the waterhole.

The next day you'll drive from Omaruru to another private game reserve, Erindi. Erindi is a large game reserve where chances are you’ll see a lion! Here you will experience a true African experience as our lodge is fully self catering. The lodges all have a view over the waterhole, with a private pathway leading up close to the waterhole. Enjoy the day and evening at the lodge, whether by the swimming pool or sitting by the waterhole.

There is no restaurant at the lodge, so the evening meal is your own self catered dinner. Enjoy a proper African Braai (BBQ), there is a small shop where you can buy various things you will need.

On day 5 you'll transfer from Erindi to Swakopmund. In the early morning enjoy a guided open-truck safari in Erindi private game reserve. We leave early to catch the sunrise and expect to see the animals From Erindi drive to Swakopmund.

Swakopmund is a coastal town, nestled between the Namib Desert and the Atlantic Ocean. It’s full of life, and offers a huge variety of excursions. Your time in Swakopmund will be free at leisure and all meals & excursions to be booked and paid on spot. Your Tour Leader will assist with bookings.

The next two days will be free days in Swakopmund. You have so much to choose from- quads & camels in the desert, the famous Sandwich harbour where the sand dunes meet the ocean, a township tour, dolphin cruise, skydiving, living desert tour and more.

On day 8 it's time to head Southbound to Sossusvlei area. Here you will find some of the highest sand dunes in the world, as tall as 320 meters. You’ll get the chance to see Dune 45, the most photographed dune in the world, Deadvlei with its dead trees standing in a salt pan in the middle of the desert.

Upon arrival at your lodge from Swakopmund enjoy the time to relax and jump in the pool.

We depart very early the next morning to catch the sunrise in the dunes, and to avoid the most heat. We go on a guided excursion into Sossusvlei & Deadvlei to explore the area. Here you get the option to either climb "Big Daddy" (one of the largest sand dunes in the world), and walk between the Deadvlei trees.
