Kids Safari Deserts

Our beautiful planet is truly a place of wonder – especially if you are 8 and 10 years old!
Join Luca and his sister Melua on a wild journey of discovery as they explore some of the most spectacular places on earth! Armed with an insatiable sense of curiosity, our two young adventurers head off on a mission to learn about the fascinating animals that call these amazing places home. Journeying from the rolling savannahs of the African bush, to the crystal clear waters of Africa’s two mighty oceans and the towering sand dunes of the world’s oldest desert, they find excitement, mystery and plenty of interesting characters at every turn!

Spanning much of Namibia’s west coast, lies the oldest desert on earth – the Namib. Very few people have been lucky enough to cross this enormous sea of sand and together with their expert guide Luca and Melua set off on a week-long adventure across this magnificent desert. Just getting there takes days, and their journey is as exciting as the destination. Finally, they lay eyes on the huge expanse of sand and it’s time to explore the Namib! The towering dunes and fossilised rock formations may seem hostile and lifeless but do not be fooled, there is an abundance of life just waiting to be discovered. As they travel west to¬wards the Atlantic Ocean, they sift through the remains of diamond mining ghost towns now slowly surrendering to the power of the elements while shipwrecks loom like slumbering gi-ants in the mist - both blown in from a restless ocean. Here they follow the endless beaches, passing the largest colonies of seals in the world until the desert finally runs out of sand.
