Flying not only allows you to arrive at your destination in the shortest possible time, it also means you can reach remote places that simply wouldn’t be accessible by road. Flying – especially in smaller aircraft - also gives you a different perspective on the scale of the landscapes unfolding beneath you.
Taking wing over the vastness of Namibia illustrates the point perfectly. You’ll fly along the Skeleton Coast to picnic amidst a seal colony. You’ll drop in on desert camps, tour the wind-sculpted sand dunes around Sossusvlei, experience the isolation of the Himba people, track desert-adapted elephants and sail along the Kunene River.
Windhoek – Sossusvlei
Today you meet your private guide and fly to Sossusvlei by light aircraft to tour the majestic sand dunes. Your flight will take you along the famed Skeleton Coast – showing you the bones of shipwrecks, sticking out of the sand like huge ribs – to Swakopmund and the Cape Cross Seal Colony, where you’ll have a picnic lunch on the beach before flying on to the superbly scenic Huab Valley.
Stay: One night in the Huab Valley
Terrance Bay – Hoarusib Valley
Take off and fly to Terrance Bay in Skeleton Coast Park for a tour of the Roaring Dunes by Land Rover. You’ll then fly north to the beautiful Hoarusib Valley.
Stay: One night in Leylandsdrift Camp
At Hoarusib you’ll have the opportunity to meet some of the local Himba people and gain an insight into their deserted-adapted culture, before flying north along the Skeleton Coast to Kunene River.
Stay: One night at the Kunene River Camp.
Kunene – Johannesburg
Take an early morning boat trip before returning to Windhoek by plane to meet your connecting flight to Johannesburg and overnight flight home.
