Description

On arrival in Namibia's capital Windhoek you will be met and flown south to &Beyond's Soussusvlei Desert Lodge which is surrounded by the moonscape of mountains and dunes. Lap up the silence and solitude of the awe-inspiring dunes and stony outcrops. Explore the area on foot or enjoy nature drives in open 4 x 4 safari vehicles, or on the 4-wheel all terrain motorbike excursions. There is also the opportunity to discover ancient San rock art hidden in remote caves within the reserve. There is also the chance to learn more about the endless African night sky stargazing at a sophisticated observatory, accompanied by a resident astronomer.

You will be collected by the Schoeman's Skeleton Coast Flying Safaris when your flying adventure north along the isolated Skeleton Coast will begin. Touch down on remote airstrips and explore

The Skeleton Coast, which reaches from the far south of Namibia right up to the Angolan border, is a mesmerising strip of land, dotted with sun-bleached whalebones and rusting shipwrecks which can be seen from the air. Here you will touch down where sand dunes roll in waves towards the sea, and fierce breakers crash onto mist-shrouded beaches. The entire area is uninhabited by man, home only to desert-adapted wildlife, unique vegetation, fossil beds and striking geological formations. Spend each of your three nights in a different lodge or simple tented camp, position to make the most of fabulous views.

After your adventure you can be dropped off at Windhoek Airport in time to connect with your flight home. Alternatively you can also be dropped off at many of the Namibian lodges, such as those in the Damaraland in order to extend your Namibian adventure.
