Family Overland between Windhoek and Victoria Falls

From £1.0E+19 for 19 days
Trip Overview

There are few holidays for families to match an authentic African Safari, but the one that will surpass even the most luxurious safari is our Family Overland Adventure from Windhoek to Victoria Falls. Not only are the wildlife viewing opportunities quite superb with elephants, lions, hippo, rhino, and the rest, but also this is a journey through 3 of Africa’s most interesting countries, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia.

Camping with the kids surrounded by the noises of the African night is a wonderful experience; sitting around a camp fire, with Africa’s huge skies above is epic; but add in the fun of quad biking through the desert, canoeing through the Okavango, or multiple wildlife safaris and you have an amazing journey, that no one in the family will ever forget.
