Northern Namibia Fly-in Safari
Damaraland, Etosha National Park, Kaokoland, Windhoek
This nine-day tour is a combination of classic African wildlife safari in Etosha National Park, a unique desert experience in Sossusvlei and fascinating Damaraland and Kaokoland experiences with the Himba people and desert-adapted wildlife; add luxurious accommodation in exclusive nature reserves and you're all set for this amazing 9-day Namibia Fly-in.
The Namibia Highlights Fly-in is an extended 9-day version of the classic Namibia Highlights Fly-in Safari adding the extraordinary (and remote) Kaokoland to Namibia's more famous attractions of Sossusvlei, Damaraland and Etosha National Park.
Starting and ending in Namibia's capital city, Windhoek, you will fly over the great sand sea to Sossusvlei; then over the Skeleton Coast to Damaraland; Kaokoland is your next amazing destination and you top it all with a classic big game safari in Etosha.
This fly-in tour is reversible and available in three levels of comfort: ultra-luxury, luxury and standard. You can also extend or reduce the itinerary by as many days as you wish to include your choice of Namibia's other major destinations like Swakopmund, Fish River Canyon and Caprivi.
From Windhoek International Airport or Eros Domestic you will fly over the Khomas Hochland and the Naukluft Mountains down the 1000m escarpment to Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert.
On the way: A sneak preview of Sossusvlei - the main attraction - as seen from the air will reveal an endless sea of copper-and-ochre sand dunes stretching to the Skeleton Coast and the Atlantic Sea.
When you're there: Your must-do activity is an excursion into Sossusvlei. Wander about Dead Pan, with its eerie dream-like collection of petrified acacia trees and red dunes rising sheer from the salt-white pan. Climb a dune and capture the full force of a sea of red sand dunes as far as you can see... at sunrise.
Back on your private nature reserve you can take scenic game drives into the desert looking for creatures great, small and odd. Sunsets are saluted in traditional African fashion and the evening under the desert sky will lull you into a deep and peaceful sleep.
When you've had your fill of cloudless blue skies, vast open spaces, ever-changing hues and pristine wilderness it's time for your next Namibian treat - Damaraland.
On the way: As you fly over one of the world's largest nature reserves the land changes from dunes and mountains to vast plains that collide with a dune belt along the Skeleton Coast past Conception Bay, Sandwich Harbour and Walvis Bay. It's a pretty scenic flight. You will land in Swakopmund to re-fuel your plane for the flight to Twyfelfontein in Damaraland.
When you're there: Twyfelfontein is the scene of Africa's most concentrated collection of San rock art and the scenery is tranquil, picturesque and unique.
Birding, geology, nature walks and scenic drives compliment the unique Namibian experience that is Damaraland.
If Damaraland blew you away with its scenery and amazing desert-adapted wildlife, then Kaokoland is Damaraland on performance-enhancing drugs.
On the way: Fly over Damaraland and watch the landscape rumple and fold into natural barriers protecting one of the most remote and ancient places on Earth.
When you're there: Kaokoland is home to the semi-nomadic Himba who live side-by-side with elusive desert-adapted wildlife including rhino, elephant, lion, giraffe, many antelope species and a great variety of birdlife. Activities include nature walks, game drives, Himba village visits, rhino tracking, birding and scenic sundowner outings.
Your mid-morning flight takes you over Kaokoland to Etosha National Park.
On the way: As you fly over Kaokoland the land rises and levels out to form game-rich savannah plains that support the spectrum of southern African wildlife and several endemics to boot.
When you're there: No visit to Namibia would be complete without a safari in Etosha National Park.
Your two days in Etosha offer the traditional classic African wildlife safari with all of the big game and plains species present in great numbers. Top this with a unique national park that has a massive pan in the middle surrounded by natural waterholes and you have an exceptional game viewing experience.
Bid farewell to the wildlife, the peace and tranquillity and the unspoiled scenery as you fly back to Windhoek in time to catch your outbound flight at the end of your amazing Namibia highlights fly-in safari tour.
