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 private charter small plane high up in the skies.
For 7 nights you will travel across Namibia on a series of short flights and stay.
You will be met on your arrival in Windhoek by your pilot and fly to Okonjima private nature reserve.
In this lodge with a vast variety of wildlife, you will concentrate on leopard & Rhino tracking, but not only (zebras, oryx, giraffe, wildebeest, hyenas, lions..). An incredible experience not to be missed in total comfort and safety.
A desertscape of sand, stones, stars, sustainability and silence.
The lodge is situated within &Beyond Sossuvlei Private Desert Reserve, a vast 12,715 hectare expanse deep in the Namib, the world’s oldest living desert.
You will walk across ancient sands and hike and the long dunes winding tailbone of a crest all the way which has been sculpted by prevailing winds. As you reach the top without any other people in sight, look out over Sossusvlei sensational views.
Tuck in to a delicious picnic breakfast to celebrate.
You will be flying to the west coast passing Sossusvlei & Dead Vlei for the view of the pans amongst the 1000ft tall sand dunes.
The next leg over the “sea of Dunes” take us past the long deserted Charlottenfelder diamond camps and on to the coast, passing several shipwrecks, over the famous sandwich Harbour wetland and then directly to Walvis bay.
You will be staying at the bay view hotel in front of the sea.
A lot of activities can be done at the coast :
This trip can be done at any time of year, winter or summer, rain or shine. Generally, the climate in Namibia is typical of an arid area but it's not unusual for there to be seasonal variations across the country. Be prepared for anything, but our general predictions would be as follows... Summer (January to March), is the hottest time of year and if it's going to rain, it will be now. In April and May, the temperature cools down a little and June to October are the winter months, characterised by balmy days, blue skies and lots of sunshine. At the end of the year, the temperature heats up again and you may encounter some thunderstorms here and there.
If you're travelling in the winter months, make sure to pack a lightweight jacket and even a pair of gloves and a scarf for the chilly mornings on the coast. In summer, light, loose clothes are best - but perhaps bring a jumper too!
