Family Overland between Windhoek and Victoria Falls

From £2200 for 19 days
Trip Overview

Overlanding is the only way to see Southern Africa! Dragoman have been leading the way in African overland expeditions since 1981, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. This trip is designed specially for families! Designed to appeal to the entire family, our family overland expeditions are family holidays with a difference, full of true outdoor pursuit - roasting marshmallows at night around a campfire in the middle of the wilds, taking a boat safari deep into the Okavango Delta or enjoying some hair-raising adventure activities on the coast at Swakopmund. Our Namibia and Botswana family overland trip takes you from the colossal Victoria Falls through some of Africa's most astounding scenery, wildlife havens, and activities. You will enjoy canoe safaris on the stunning Okavango Delta, wildlife cruises in Chobe National Park, go tracking and food gathering with the San tribe, spot huge herds of elephant at Etosha National Park, trek up the famous sand dunes at Sesriem, try your hand at sandboarding or quadbiking at Swakopmund, see the Cape Cross seal colony on the Skeleton Coast, trek to see the bush paintings at Spitzkoppe and best of all, enjoy all these things having travelled there overland-style as a family, ensuring you all have an experience that no-one will ever forget. Take your family to explore the wilds of Southern Africa on this unforgettable family overland adventure!

On our second day here, we will have a free day to allow you to participate in some of the many optional activities on offer. There are various activities and excursions to choose from, including white water rafting and canoeing, horse riding, abseiling or gorge swinging!

Our camp ground is centrally located on the Zambezi River only four kilometres from the Falls, the perfect place to use as a base for the vast array of adventure activities on offer in the area.
