A major feature of a flying safari across the Skeleton Coast is
the use of light aircraft. Flights at 'sea' level provide
outstanding bird's-eye views of seal colonies, diverse geological
formations and - if you're lucky - the endangered black rhino, and
sometimes the planes come in to land on the beach.
Once on the ground, Land Rovers are used to explore the
environment close up and discover interesting flora and fauna, such
as desert-adapted elephants or the strange 'living fossil'
Welwitschia plant. These safaris are not just about the game but
more to experience the freedom, beauty and strange solitude of the
area. Itineraries include 4x4 driving on enormous dunes, visits to
ancient Bushman rock art and to a settlement of the nomadic Himba
Further north, the Kunene River forms the border with Angola and
is the only permanent source of water in the whole region, creating
a lush oasis along its banks surrounded by rugged mountains and
sand dunes. We can arrange boating trips on the river where you can
spot crocodiles lazing on the banks.
