namibia desert

Namibia, the "living desert," is a unique landscape, with the highest sand dunes and driest deserts, but inland you'll find verdant game parks with a boggling array of elephants, giraffes, ostriches, lions, cheetahs, leopards, wildebeests, and rare endangered black and white rhinos.

Kids will have fun learning about African animals, especially footprints and other tracking signs. Also, since Namibia is in the southern hemisphere, summer (their winter) is a great time to visit.

Fun food
Try kudu stroganoff, zebra steaks, or ostrich egg omelettes (breakfast or dinner time at home won't be the same when your kids get back home).
Shop for necklaces and bracelets galore (made out of all sorts of stuff such as mussel and ostrich shells), or pillows embroidered with traditional designs and animal motifs, and small carved wooden elephants or giraffes.
