  • The family day excursion to Twyfelfontein to discover its astounding San rock art
  • Sharing stories around a campfire and learning to drum on a djembe
  • Family rides on e-fat bikes across the desert, followed by a glorious picnic
  • Walking in the Petrified Forest, home to ‘stone’ trees as old as 280 million years
