Namibia Fly in Safari

The Namibia fly-in safari is a wonderful way of exploring all that the country has to offer over nine memorable days. By day, fly over the second largest canyon in the world - the Fish River Canyon, the majestic Sossusvlei dunes and the spectacular Etosha National Park. By night, enjoy warm Namibian hospitality and world-class comfort.

You’ll fly over canyons and ghost towns, sand dunes and salt pans, ancient rock formations and historical points of interest. But it’s not all blue-sky adventure.

We love this tour because it takes in so many of the highlights of any Namibian adventure, showing off the country’s magnificent natural beauty.

Fish River Canyon
Day 1

Starting with a morning flight from either Windhoek or Hosea Kutako airport, the first day of your fly-in safari takes you over the Fish River Canyon – a 160km ravine that is up to 27km wide and 550 metres deep in some places. Located in the sweeping plains of the Gondwana Cañon Park, it is the second largest canyon in the world and a magnificent sight to see from the air.

The farmhouse at Canyon Lodge was originally built in 1913. Over the years it has grown to 25 en-suite chalets, all built from natural rock to blend into the physical environment. It’s a relaxed, charming place, where you can soak up the day’s warmth from the swimming pool at the edge of the desert beyond or watch the sun bleed into the landscape at dusk.

Day 2

Today you are heading towards Lüderitz and the eerie deserted town of Kolmanskop, where desert sand is slowly obliterating human construction. Take a walk through Lüderitz, with its distinctive German colonial architecture before tucking into a delicious lunch served at the award-winning Nest Hotel. The afternoon flight takes you to the 37 000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve. Here, you’ll be treated to panoramic views of the world-famous Sossusvlei dunes. Touch down at the Kulala Desert Lodge, your home for the night.

In the native Oshiwambo language, Kulala means ‘to sleep’. You’ll do plenty of sleeping here, in one of ten luxury en-suite kulalas built on elevated platforms. Take in the beautiful view from your private veranda, or mingle with other guests in the lounge, bar or swimming pool. While you’re there, why not book a hot-air balloon flight to start your day tomorrow?

Day 3 AND 4

Leave the dunes behind and head towards Swakopmund, where you’ll spend two nights. As you fly into the quaint desert town, you’ll have one last look at the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei before flying over Conception Bay, Sandwich Harbour and Walvis Bay Lagoon. You have a bit of time, so why not book a catamaran cruise, quad-bike tour or one of Tommy Collard’s renowned Living Desert tours?

Day 5

Twyfelfontein is a fascinating, evocative place, with its delicate ecosystem and ancient rock paintings. You’ll land at Camp Kipwe, and head out to fill your camera and memories with some of the best examples of San paintings and engravings. And don’t miss the effects of prehistoric volcanic eruptions in the Organ Pipes, Burnt Mountain and Petrified Forest. This is where Mother Nature shows what she’s really made of.

Camp Kipwe is set in the Twyfelfontein Conservancy and is a haven for travel-weary adventurers who want to recharge their batteries. Shake the dust out of your hair as you soak in a luxurious outdoor bath that looks out to the distant horizon. While you’re here, why not book a tour to find the last desert-dwelling elephants on earth?

Day 6 AND 7

You’ll land at Mushara Outpost on the eastern outskirts of the park. It’s just 10kms from the Von Lindequist Gate, making it an easy hop for game drives to see birds and animals of all kinds gather for a drink at waterholes dotted around the park.

After a stay at Mushara Outpost you’ll never want to sleep in a normal tent again. The luxury en-suite wood and canvas tents are built 1.5 metres off the ground, with a private viewing deck and showers that can be opened up to the bush beyond.
