Vast landscapes, endless sandy vistas and miles upon miles of the untouched African frontier – this is what you get when you plan a safari to Namibia. And while a self-drive safari is one of the most exciting and popular ways to see Namibia – flying safaris over-delivers on every single front.
Not only is it a unique way to see the seemingly ever-stretching panoramas that Namibia is known for, it’s also an excellent option to make your way around the country if you are pressed for time. It gives you the opportunity to see Namibia’s incredible rivers, rocks, mountains, dunes, wildlife and deserts like never before – dwarfed below you, in what can only be described as a surreal experience.
While some companies offer self-fly safaris, our pick would definitely be taking an experience Namibian pilot, who can point out the most exciting landmarks. With a pilot flying you from destination to destination, you are sure to catch some of the love and passion that they have for this incredible country.
Flying safaris usually taking place in a Cessna of some variation, a perfect plane for getting the most out of your eagle-eyed view. Take in the red desert sands, the isolated fishing villages and shipwrecks, the ancient black desert rocks and remember to always keep your eyes open for the desert-adapted elephants.
The amazing thing about a flying safari is that you are completely alone. At the end of every day, you will land in the spot your pilot chooses, put up a canvas tent, use the bucket shower and then sit around the fire. Lean back a little and we guarantee that you will never have seen so many stars in the night sky, shining as bright as they ever will – the sight will leave you truly breathless.
Flying safaris are one of the best ways to see this incredible country and all the unbelievable scenery that is around every corner.
