Skeleton Coast Flying Safari

Namibia

Soar above vast seas of rolling sand dunes, dramatic desert wilderness and other-worldly vegetation. Then drop down to spot desert-adapted animals along ephemeral riverbeds, before landing on a deserted beach for a walk among the famed shipwrecks of the Skeleton Coast.

Stretching from the south of Namibia up into Angola, the Skeleton Coast is without doubt best explored by air. A fly-in safari by private light-aircraft is spectacular way of not only saving time but getting a bird’s eye view of some pretty breath-taking scenery.

The legendary Schoeman family helped proclaim the coastline a national park in 1971 and have operated for over 40 years. They are without doubt the best team to guide you on a journey into one of Africa’s last truly great wildernesses.

We recommend starting with a couple of nights in the central Namib Desert to explore the iconic red dunes of Sossusvlei. The whole area is a photographer’s dream with epic sunrises and crimson sunsets to try and capture, as well as exceptional stargazing at the nearby Dark Sky Reserve of Namib-Rand. Then take to the skies for to witness the staggering scale and ever-changing landscapes of Namibia.
