Best of Namibia Wings Safari - Namibia Reservations

Guaranteed departures every day. No minimum number of guests. The aircraft, usually a Cessna 210 or a Cessna 402 for larger groups, and the pilot stay with the group throughout.


DAYS 1&2
Depart Eros Airport, Windhoek by light aircraft to Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp for two nights. Departure is in the morning at a time best suited to the guests and their incoming flights. All guests coming off international flights will be given enough time to connect off the incoming flight without overnighting in Windhoek, if they so wish. It is one hour's flight down to Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp. Activities include a safari down to the very end of the Tsauchab River and the heart of Sossusvlei for those wonderful dune scenes. The nature drives will take place in 4x4 vehicles, and will also include a visit to Sesriem Canyon. Nature trails on the reserve highlight the unique Namib flora and fauna.

DAYS 3&4
The flight takes you over the dunes of the Namib and over Sossusvlei itself for an alternative view from the air and then due westwards to Meob Bay on the Skeleton Coast. From here on up the coast there is spectacular desert and Skeleton Coast scenery, where the dunes and the desert meet the Atlantic Ocean. The flight up the coast takes you over the site of the Eduard Bolen shipwreck, past Conception Bay and the wreck of the Shaunee, over Sandwich Harbour and its famous lagoon, past the flamingos of Walvis Bay and up to Swakopmund. Here you are met and transferred to the Walvis Bay Harbour where they set out on a dolphin and seal cruise with the opportunity to see leatherback turtle, sunfish, penguins, dolphins, seals, flamingos, cormorants and other sea birds. We will then stop for a seafood lunch. After lunch we will cruise back to the wharf and be transferred by road to Swakopmund for a short city tour and onto Swakopmund Airport for departure at approx. 1500.  (included in the cost). In the afternoon you depart from Swakopmund for a scenic flight further up the Skeleton Coast, past the Cape Cross Seal Colony, before turning east to fly up the Huab River to Damaraland Camp for two nights. Highlights of the stay at Damaraland Camp are nature excursions into the rocky desert in search of the rare and endangered desert elephant and rhino. This is an area where the chances of encountering the elephants is very high. Damaraland is one of the few really good tented camps in the country. All tents have en-suite bathrooms with flush loos, even though the area has water shortages.

DAYS 5&6
Fly by light aircraft from Damaraland to Ongava Lodge or Ongava Tented Camp for two nights. Highlights are the game drives into Etosha and the night actives, walks and hides on the private reserve.
