What is this safari about?
The ultimate (and only) way to experience the vastness and solitude of the Namib Desert and Skeleton Coast is from the air! Nothing can truly prepare you for this adventure. Fly in a private chartered plane between wilderness camps and see some of the most spectacular sights from the air, many of which is not accessible on land.
The safaris are between four and six days, with overnight stops at selected wilderness camps. Guests are accommodated in exclusive, privately owned, fully equipped tented camps. The camps are comfortable, but basic and each is situated in a spot carefully chosen for its unique beauty.
Why is this special?
- Flying from camp to camp over Namibia is just VERY special.
- The only way to really experience the desert and the vastness of it all.
- Overnighting in private remote wilderness camps, middle of nowhere!
- Unique photographic opportunities for all.
- Experience almost all of Namibia in just a few days.
Where is this?
The safari normally starts in Windhoek heading south into the Namib, before returning north up the Skeleton Coast and onto the Kunene River bordering on Angola. On the way stopovers are done at the iconic spots.
The safaris are conducted in an exceptionally beautiful and interesting environment, but the terrain is generally wild, undeveloped and sometimes even rough. It is far from civilization and there is no infrastructure and few roads.
Pick and drop off at locations other than Windhoek is possible on request.
Who can go?
The min number of guests is two and a max of eight. Private tours can be arranged for a min of four guests.
What should I expect to pay?
The rates vary from around USD 1 900 per person per day, to USD 2 200 depending on the route and flying time involved. The rate is fully inclusive except for pick up and drops off other than Windhoek.
What extensions do you recommend?
For private groups extended stopovers at some location such as Sossusvlei, Wolwedans or the Kunene can be arranged.
The flying safari works well with stopovers at some of Namibia’s great lodges, either at the start or end of the tour.
