Namibia Wing Safari
Departures operate every Sunday all year-round.
The safari departs by light aircraft from Eros International Airport, close to Windhoek in the morning. It is a one-hour flight down to Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp, where we spend two nights.
Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp is situated 20km from Sesriem, the Park's entrance to the Sossusvlei dunes. Towering dunes rise dramatically, more than 300 metres above the surrounding plains. The camp's location provides access to Sossusvlei, yet also offers privacy and exclusivity. Activities iinclude early morning excursions in 4x4 vehicles to the magnificent Sossusvlei dunes. Afternoon activities are enjoyed on the property where guests can spend time taking in the desert scenery with its unique fauna and flora.
Days 3 & 4: Damaralanad Camp, Damaraland
The early morning flight takes guests over the Namib and Sossusvlei then due west to Meob Bay on the Skeleton Coast. Fly up the coast and land at Swakopmund Airport where you are transferred to Walvis Bay Harbour for a boat trip (weather permitting) with an opportunity to view seals and usually schools of dolphins swimming alongside the boat. Return to Walvis Bay Harbour for a delicious seafood lunch. In the afternoon take a scenic flight further up the Skeleton Coast, to the Huab River Valley and Damaraland Camp for two nights.
Situated on the northern face of the Huab River valley and looking south toward the imposing Brandberg Mountains, Damaraland Camp offers its guests endless vistas. This comfortable and friendly camp offers walks and drives in one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia. Although wildlife is not concentrated, the camp is situated where the rare desert-adapted elephant roams, alongside gemsbok (oryx), springbok, ostrich and other hardy desert animals.
Days 5 & 6: Ongava Tented Camp, Ongava Game Reserve
We fly by light aircraft today from Damaraland to Ongava Tented Camp, for a further two-night stay. Highlights are the game drives into Etosha National Park as well as night drives, nature walks and hides on the private reserve.
Ongava Tented Camp, built of stone, canvas and thatch, accommodates 16 guests in eight large comfortable Meru-style tents all with en-suite facilities. Activities include game drives into the Etosha where lion, elephant, cheetah, gemsbok, springbok, and hartebeest can be seen at many of the waterholes in the park. In addition, night drives and walks are offered on the private reserve.
Day 7: Windhoek
We depart Ongava by light air charter back to Windhoek where the safari ends at either Windhoek Eros or Windhoek International Airport. The safari generally ends at about 13h00.
