NAMIBIA BY AIR 7 - Comfort
7 Nights flying around Namibia
This eight-day fly-in safari starts with a flight from Windhoek in a southwesterly direction to the Sossusvlei area. Climb on top of the highest sand dunes in the world and enjoy the unique view of the vast spaces and the dunes from the aircraft. Along the coast, this memorable tour leads you to Swakopmund, a town hedged by the Namib Desert and the Atlantic Ocean. Choose between an adventurous Living Desert Tour in search of Namibias “Small Five” and a Catamaran Cruise in Walvis Bay to encounter dolphins, seals and various other marine wildlife, before you depart to the world-renowned rock engravings at Twyfelfontein and embark on a drive in search of the impressive desert adapted elephants which live in this area. This safari ends not less exciting than it has begun – you spend two nights at the private Ongava Game Reserve at the southern boundary of the famous Etosha National Park and explore the abundant wildlife within the National Park and the Game Reserve on game drives. Watch oryx, kudus, zebras and with a little luck, elephants, lions and rhinos at the numerous waterholes, before the safari ends back in Windhoek.
Day 1 & 2 - Sossuvlei
From Hosea Kutako International Airport, where you will embark on a light-aircraft transfer to Sossusvlei, home to some of the world's highest sand dunes. On arrival at the airstrip you will be met by one of your local guides, who will transfer you to Sossusvlei Desert Lodge.
Nestled deep in the heart of Namibia's ancient Namib Desert, the lodge is a secluded and serene oasis that overlooks awe-inspiring dunes and stony outcrops. A world of vast spaces, endless horizons and rugged mountain heights, the utter tranquillity and extraordinary clarity of light make this area one of Africa's most compelling landscapes.
