Namibia Flying Safari Tour Destinations

NamibRand Nature Reserve

The 6 day Namibia flying safari starts with a flight to NamibRand Nature Reserve. You will be heading to a Namibia reserve located in southern Namibia. NamibRand is a private nature reserve established to help protect and conserve the unique ecology and wildlife of the south-west Namib Desert.

Namibia Flying Safari

Conserving the pro-Namib, the area along the eastern edge of the Namib Desert, is critically important. This is in order to facilitate seasonal migratory wildlife routes and to protect biodiversity.

It is probably the largest private nature reserve in southern Africa, extending over an area of more than 200,000 ha. The Reserve shares a 100km border with the Namib-Naukluft National Park in the west and is bordered in the east by the imposing Nubib Mountains.

Virtually all facets of the Namib Desert are represented on the Reserve. There is sand and gravel plains and stretches of savanna alternate with mountain ranges, inselbergs and vegetated dune belts.

NamibRand Nature Reserve is a private nature reserve in Southwestern Namibia in the Namib Desert. Founded in 1984 by J.A. Brückner, it has more than 215,000 hectares and shares a 100 km border with Namib-Naukluft National Park to the west and the Nubib mountains to the east.

Namibia Flying Safari

Four distinct habitats are found on the Reserve. There are dunes and sandy plains, inselbergs and mountains, gravel plains, and sand and gravel plains interface.

There are several predominant large mammals on the Reserve for those on the 6 day Namibia flying safari. They include Oryx gazelle (gemsbok or oryx) and Antidorcas marsupialis (springbok).

The latest game census indicated that there were 3,200 oryx and 12,400 springbok on the Reserve. Other large mammals include kudu, Hartman’s and Burchell’s zebra, giraffe, klipspringer, steenbok, hartebeest and baboon.

Predators to be seen on your Namibia flying safari include leopard, spotted and brown hyena, black-backed jackal, aardwolf, bat-eared fox, Cape fox, African wildcat, caracal and genet.

To date more than 150 bird species have been identified, while work is still in progress on the inventory of rodents, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and plants.

The NamibRand Nature Reserve is a model for private conservation in southern Africa as it demonstrates holistic biodiversity conservation balanced with financial sustainability.

Low-impact ecotourism is a means towards sustaining our conservation efforts through park fees. Five tourism concessions have been awarded, that each pay a daily, per-bed fee to the Reserve. The funds generated through these park fees enable the Reserve to be financially self-sustaining.

Long Elizabeth Bay

Namibia Flying Safari

Your Namibia flying safari will have a day tour to Elizabeth Bay. This is a mining town in southern coast of Namibia, 25 km south of Lüderitz. It was formerly considered a ghost town.

Thught to be forgotten in the shadow of its ghost town counterpart, Kolmanskop, Elizabeth Bay was another lucrative diamond mining town that is worth exploring. A Namibia flying safari to this town feels closer to urban exploration, and its decrepit buildings and machinery tell of a dark, greedy history.

It was operational for only 20 years, but Elizabeth Bay still boasted an immense wealth of diamonds. As a result, German miners flooded the town, building their own miniature Germany along the coast of Namibia.

A large entertainment hall and casino were built overlooking the ocean. The town also housed monstrous machinery for desalinating ocean water, rows of housing for German miners, and large, overcrowded buildings for local workers.

After a quick flash of success, the town closed in 1948. Then, in 1991, a new Elizabeth Bay mine was opened and is still in operation today. The remains of the original still stand, weather-torn and beaten but still impressive as they capture the endeavors of when the town was at its peak.

Swakopmund

This Namibia flying safari will then head to the beach resort of Swakopmund. It is situated on Namibia’s Atlantic coast, approximately 219 miles (352 kilometers) due west of Windhoek.

Namibia Flying Safari

Swakopmund is surrounded on three sides by the Namib Desert. It is also surounded on a side by towering golden dunes that plunge dramatically into the deep blue sea.

Swakopmund is the gateway to the Skeleton Coast. This has made it a haven for adventure seekers and adrenalin junkies, backpackers, and overland road-trippers.

The town itself is steeped in German colonial culture, from its cuisine to striking architectural landmarks like the Woermannhaus and the Kaiserliches Bezirksgericht.

Travelers come to soak up the atmosphere and to take part in activities that range from sandboarding to skydiving

Swakopmund has earned itself a reputation as Namibia’s adventure capital. Those on Namibia flying safari are spoiled for choice in terms of things to do. Options range from relaxing or fishing on the beach, to riding camels.

On this Namibia flying safari, you may opt to go admiring the world’s largest cluster of quartz crystals. This is at the downtown Kristall Galerie. Alternatively embark on the historical tour of the town.

Kunene Region

Kunene is one of the fourteen regions of Namibia and home to the Himba ethnic group who are a tribe of the Herero. Compared to the rest of Namibia, it is relatively underdeveloped. This is due to the mountainous inaccessible geography and the dryness that significantly hinders agriculture.

Namibia Flying Safari

Namibia flying safari to Kunene Region goes to north-western Namibia. The area is wild, remote and sparsely populated. This is a transitional area with a distinctive desert region.

Kunene has a surprising wealth of desert-adapted wildlife. They include the largest population of free-ranging black rhino, elephant, lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena, Hartmann’s zebra, springbok and gemsbok (oryx).

It’s also home to the Damara, Himba and Herero tribes who live in this stark and fascinating 28-million-acre arid expanse.

Your Namibia fying safari will head to the south, between the Huab and Koigab Rivers, is the Torra Conservancy. This is a rugged, remote area with pitted valleys and rocky hills.

It’s one of the most biodiverse areas of the region and known for its healthy population of desert elephants. Other large game that can be spotted here include black rhino, lion, cheetah, giraffe, Hartmann’s zebra and the gemsbok (oryx).

Expect a feat of nature that these creatures are able to survive in this arid, unforgiving region.

Your Namibia flying safari will also go to the Huab Valley in southern Kunene. It is also known as Damaraland. Twyfelfontein contains some of Namibia’s most popular landmarks.

The area is full of ancient rock engravings by the early San people, known to be the the most impressive collection of petroglyphs in Africa/

The White Lady rock painting at Brandberg being the most well known of these. Other sites worth visiting are the Organ Pipes
