Namibia Flying Safari

Duration: 7 Days
Start: Windhoek, Namibia
End: Windhoek, Namibia
Languages: English
Gaze down at Namibia’s mesmerising scenery – it’s only from the air that you can appreciate the mind-boggling vastness of the landscape.

Namibia is awe-inspiringly impressive from all angles, but if we had to choose one way to marvel at the magnificent landscapes, it would be from a small plane, high up in the skies. And that’s exactly why we’ve come up with this ultimate Namibia flying safari. For six nights, you’ll swap four wheels (almost) for two wings, and travel across Namibia on a series of short flights. All that’s left to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery sweeping below you.

Your first two nights on the flying safari will be at Kwessi Dunes, before you swoop over the vast Namib Desert and the towering dunes of Sossusvlei from above. You’ll touch down briefly for a beach lunch in Swakopmund, and then back to the sky for an incredible flight over the Atlantic Coastline and inland to the Hoanib Valley for two nights. Leave the plane behind for the spectacular drive to the Skeleton Coast where you’ll stay at award-winning Shipwreck Lodge for a further two nights, before you hop back in the plane for a final flight across the interior of the country to Windhoek. It’s going to be difficult to choose a highlight…

Day 1: 

Arrive in Windhoek and fly to NamibRand Nature Reserve.
You’ll be met by your guide at the airport and flown to Kwessi Dunes in the NamibRand Nature Reserve, just south of Sossusvlei. G&Ts at the ready!

Overnight at Kwessi Dunes Lodge.


Day 2:

Today, you’ll spend time exploring the magical NamibRand and Sossuvlei area. Whether you want to embark on all the activities, or just soak up the magic of the area, this is a day to remember.

In Namibia, the landscape is just as much of an attraction as the wildlife – and it’s even more mesmerising from the skies – but don’t forget your binoculars either, as there’s an astonishing variety of wildlife hidden in these desert plains.

In the Sossusvlei and NamibRand area, keep a lookout for springbok and oryx, as well as some of the rarer creatures like aardwolf. If you’ve got a penchant for birdlife, ask your guide to find the endemic dune lark, which is found nowhere but Namibia.

Overnight at Kwessi Dunes Lodge.


Day 3:

Fly to Hoanib Valley Camp. 
Hop back on the plane for a scenic flight over the famous Eduard Bohlen shipwreck, Conception Bay and Sandwich Harbour, before touching down in Swakopmund for lunch. Then, it’s onward to Hoanib Valley Camp, over the dramatic Skeleton Coast and then inland to the beautiful interior of the country.

Overnight at Hoanib Valley Camp.


Day 4:

Spend today looking for desert-adapted giraffes, game driving through the sandy terrain or visiting the local Himba communities.

You may be lucky enough to spot desert lion and rhino. One certainty, however, is the desert-adapted giraffe. The icons of the area, they are also the focus of our conservation partners, Giraffe Conservation Foundation.

Overnight at Hoanib Valley Camp.


Day 5:

Transfer to the Shipqwreck Lodge at the Skeleton Coast.
Get ready to enjoy the best transfer drive on the continent! You’ll pass incredible rock formations and desert-elephant digging for water, before arriving at the crashing waves and rolling dunes of the Skeleton Coast. Wow.

Overnight at Shipwreck Lodge.


Day 6:

Enjoy your time at the award-winning Shipwreck Lodge. Activities on offer include quad biking, visits to the Clay Castle and seal colony and game drives – or you may like to just put your feet up and admire the views.

At Shipwreck Lodge, expect giraffe, lion, baboons, elephant and elusive brown hyena in the dunes, whilst at the coast you’ll find hundreds of Cape fur seals at the Mowe Bay Seal Colony, and plenty of birds flitting through the chilly ocean spray.

Overnight at Shipwreck Lodge.


Day 7:

Departure! This morning you’ll meet the plane and fly back down the stunning Atlantic Coastline, before arriving back in Windhoek, or, if you’ve chosen to extend your trip to Etosha, you’ll make your way north for the safari of a lifetime.
