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 people.
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.
