Family-friendly lodges in Namibia

In Namibia, where driving distances between destinations can be vast, a lodge that offers a range of activities can ensure everyone has a great holiday. Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch is 50 kilometers from town on a gravel road leading into the red dunes of the Kalahari. You arrive at a farmhouse to welcome drinks and friendly animals, like Skunky, a tame springbok who hangs around in the lounge. Bagatelle has rooms in the main farm house, chalets on stilts and cottages built from straw bales. There is a treatment room for massages, a pool, and telescope for stargazing. Guests can go for game drives in the reserve, walk with the resident San people, ride horses or feed orphaned cheetahs. Stay an extra day to appreciate the silence of the Kalahari.
