Nambia safari cheetah

1/5 Namibia

Why go?

This land of endless sand dunes and the hauntingly beautiful Skeleton Coast in the south-west of Africa is something your kids will be talking about long after they’re back at their school desks. Add in a safari to search for the cheetah – the fastest animal on Earth – and you’ll be the coolest parent on the planet.

How much?

Explore offers a 13-day Namibia Cheetah Safari through Etosha National Park and Otjitotongwe Cheetah Reserve, tracking this beautiful cat in its natural habitat (along with the giraffe, lion, elephant and zebra). Along the way, you’ll explore vast canyons, climb sand dunes, meet the Himba people and search for dolphins and seals in Walvis Bay.

Suitable for families with children aged seven and over, the tour departs in July and August and costs from £2,644 per adult and £1,998 per child, including flights, B&B accommodation, most other meals, transport and the services of a tour leader, ?driver and cook. 0845 291 4541, explore.co.uk
