This quintessential journey encompasses Namibia’s attractions as a whole: stunning landscapes, endless skies, barren deserts, rugged mountains and spectacular wildlife.

Namibia has rapidly become a well-known destination with a difference, renowned for its remote and intimate lodges and interaction with indigenous tribes people as well as wildlife. The many national parks and game reserves boast a huge variety of wildlife in a kaleidoscope of differing environments: giraffes amble across the blinding white saltpans of Etosha National Park, gemsbok plunge headlong up impossibly steep red dunes at Sossusvlei, and seals in their many thousands colonize lonely beachheads along the Skeleton Coast. Astonishing contrasts are everywhere for the visitor to savor, enjoy and photograph. Driving from point to point in Namibia is time consuming and uncomfortable. Better to fly and enjoy magnificent aerial views, and maximize your time at your destination.

Itinerary

Namibia Explorer by Air

Days 1 & 2 : Sossusvlei

On arrival in Windhoek, transfer to your light aircraft flight to Sossusvlei. This afternoon, we’re going to be treated to an aerial view of the iconic dunes of Sossusvlei, but we’ll be back there early tomorrow morning – the best time - for a guided nature walk. World-famous Sossusvlei is an enormous clay plan, flanked by the famous sand dunes that stand out starkly against the blue sky and flush red in the early morning sun. These towering dunes have developed over millions of years, the wind continuously transforming the contours of this sea of red sand. The ‘vlei’ itself only fills after rare, heavy rainfalls when, in a complete turnaround, it becomes a spectacular turquoise lake.

Days 3 and 4 : Swakopmund

Take to the skies. Soar over the dunes of the Namib desert and Sossusvlei, continuing westward to the Atlantic Coast to the quaint seaside village of Swakopmund. you have two nights here and the highlight will be a dolphin cruise in Walvis Bay to get up close and personal with the birds, seal colonies and numerous dolphins that inhabit this area.

Days 5 and 6 : Damaraland

Your air transfer this morning is a wonderful visual tour from on high, of the legendary Skeleton Coast, affording awe-inspiring bird’seye vistas of this desolate landscape with its array of ship wrecks. From there, we turn inland to the rocky arid desert of Damaraland, home to the unique desert-adapted elephant. Follow the line of the Skeleton Coast, and enjoy extraordinary aerial views of elephant, gemsbok, springbok and, occasionally, a glimpse of the endangered black rhino.

Days 7 and 8: Etosha

Destination... Etosha, Namibia’s premier wildlife reserve. Fly there by light aircraft for a two-night stay. After settling in to your accommodation, set out to explore this strangely bleak wilderness, teeming with wildlife. In the dry season, large herds congregate around the waterholes, while in the summer, sporadic rainfall produces a profusion of new life. Game viewing in this wild, often startlingly beautiful barren region is world renowned, and you won’t be disappointed. In the heart of the Park, is the shimmering Etosha Pan, a shallow depression which fills with water in the rainy season. Mirages, glittering salt deposits, Big Five wildlife…all wonderful material for photographs and memories.
