We hit the rough Atlantic coast and fly south along the Skeleton Coast to find some of the famous shipwrecks before reaching Cape Cross.

Sossus Full Day

Sossusvlei Full Day Excursion

  • Duration: Full Day
  • Flight distance: 630 km

Route and highlights: We take off from Swakopmund early in the morning and fly via the barren "Moon Landscape" and the dry Kuiseb Riverbed to Sossusvlei. After about 1 hours flight we land at Sossusvlei Lodge, where a safari vehicle awaits us, taking us deeper into the Namib Desert. After a breakfast in the dunes (optional) we visit the famous Dune 45 (named after the distance of 45 km to the Sesriem entrance gate).

Further highlights of the excursion are the Big Daddy, which is known to be one of the highest sand dune in the world rising up 325 metres and the Dead Vlei with its picturesque dead camelthorn trees. A long time ago the Tsauchab River flew into this Vlei supplying water to the trees. The moving dunes eventually cut off this life-giving source, leaving the trees to dry out and die. The absence of humidity conserved the trees and they remain until today as mummified witnesses of long gone times. Another highlight is of course the Sossusvlei, today’s drainage basin for the ephermal Tsauchab River. Back at Sossusvlei Lodge we enjoy a hearty lunch.

After lunch we fly along the coastline back to Swakopmund, encountering further interesting sightings along the way like the mysterious restricted diamond area "Sperrgebiet" with its abandoned ghost towns, Conception Bay with its seal colony, the shipwrecks Eduard Bohlen (1909) and Shawnee (1976) and last but not least Sandwich Harbour where the rolling waves of the Atlantic Ocean break against the mighty sand dunes of the Namib Desert.
