Climbing the iconic dunes of Sossusvlei, racing through the dunes on quad bikes in Swakopmund, searching for the desert-adapted elephant and the endangered black rhino in Damaraland, seeing numerous species all sharing a waterhole at the same time in Etosha, and tracking cheetah by vehicle and on foot at the Okonjima… this is just a snippet of what to expect when exploring Namibia! And for those looking to head off the beaten track, there is the melodramatic Skeleton Coast, the jaw-dropping scenery of the remote northwestern corner that is home to the nomadic Himba tribe, and last but not least the amazing Fish River Canyon. What is not to love about this unique and diverse country?!
Whilst the classic trips that take in Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, Damaraland and Etosha are a must-do for any visitor to Namibia, this circuit can get busy, particularly between July and August. If you are hoping to get away from the crowds and head to the remotest corners of Namibia (possibly some of the remotest corners in Africa!) to see arguably the most exquisite and exclusive scenery on the planet, a flying safari is a no-brainer.
