Schoeman Skeleton Coast Flying Safaris

See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Schoeman Skeleton Coast Flying Safaris

A flying safari along Namibia’s wonderfully wild Skeleton Coast is one of the most unique and off the beaten track safari experiences out there, and is a real Original Travel favourite.

Over the course of one of the three, four or five night safaris you will spend your days flying between vast, unexplored areas and your nights staying in small remote camps. Named after the shipwrecks that litter the shore the Skeleton Coast is also home to some incredibly diverse landscapes and rare flora and fauna. Exploring via light aircraft means you'll really grasp the size and beauty of these areas and will have the best possible views.

The low level flights provide amazing bird's-eye views of the coast's shipwrecks, diverse geological formations, resident seal colonies and desert-adapted elephants, among more. Once on the ground, 4x4's are used so that you can explore the landscapes closer up, getting out of the car to climb enormous sand dunes, visit ancient Bushman rock art sites and meet the local nomadic Himba people.

That said, these safaris are not just about the wildlife and the culture, but are also chance to embrace the total freedom, beauty and strange solitude of the area.

Travelling by plane means you'll explore remote areas that very few ever get to experience - it's the perfect digital detox.
