Namibia: Flying Safari

Namibia is awe-inspiringly impressive from all angles, but viewing the landscapes from a small plane, high in the sky, is magical.
GROUP ESCORTED TOUR

ABOUT THE TOUR

Join Nick Van Gruisen on a flying safari and experience the best of the country’s vast and varied landscapes, including the iconic dunes of Sossusvlei, the fascinating, desert-adapted species of the Hoanib Valley, the intriguing Skeleton Coast and Etosha, home to the highest concentration of animals in Namibia. Travel across Namibia on a series of short privately chartered flights during which you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery sweeping below you. The 8-night flying safari is topped and tailed with a night either side in Windhoek.

After swooping over the vast Namib Desert and the towering dunes of Sossusvlei from above, your first two nights on the flying safari are at Kwessi Dunes, a Sossusvlei safari camp located deep in Namibia’s striking NamibRand Nature Reserve. A vast desert wilderness of over 200,000 hectares with rolling desert plains and backdrop of craggy mountains and iconic red dunes, this is a place where time seems to stand still and the space is never-ending. Here, it’s not about chasing big game but rather soaking up the beauty of the colourful landscape, admiring the antelope that scatter the sand, and gazing at the stars that light up the night sky.

Then it’s back to the sky for an incredible flight over the Atlantic Coastline, touching down briefly in Swakopmund, then on along the dramatic Skeleton Coast and inland to the Hoanib Valley Camp in Kaokoland for two nights. In a country jam-packed with vast, spectacularly beautiful landscapes, Kaokoland may just be the most incredible of them all. Deep in north-western Namibia, the area is a melee of towering mountains, sand dunes, and huge expanses of desert, scattered with unique wildlife and nomadic Herero settlements. It’s also one of Namibia’s most remote and wild environments, and one that not many will get the chance to discover in a lifetime.

Take a scenic drive to the spectacular Skeleton Coast to stay at the award-winning Shipwreck Lodge for a further two nights. The Skeleton Coast is a raw, rugged and impossibly remote slice of African wilderness, where towering dunes and wind-swept plains roll as far as the eye can see, buffeted by the icy Atlantic seas. The Skeleton Coast National Park is officially the least visited of all of Namibia’s parks and Shipwreck Lodge is located in the Skeleton Coast Central Concession Area, a critically important piece of land for protecting vulnerable wildlife species.

Fly on inland to Etosha where your wildlife dreams will come true during a two-night stay at the Safarihoek Lodge which sits within an exclusive private reserve outside the renowned Etosha National Park. The Etosha Heights Private Reserve is one of the country’s most prolific game areas and blissfully free of crowds, which offers a superb opportunity to encounter endangered black and white rhino amongst large concentrations of other plains game.
