Conception Bay Flight

Includes: Scenic Flight - Namibia

This Conception Bay Flight takes off and lands from the Atlantic coastal town of Swakopmund. The flight heads east via the 'Moon Landscape' and along the Swakop riverbed to the Swakop and Kahn rivers intersections, crossing the Oasis Goanikontes. Routing southwards, it passes over the Walvis Bay Airport and the Kuiseb river bed - the natural border for the dune formations. Over the 'sea' of shifting sand dunes, the flight reaches the coast at Conception Bay, passing colonies of Cape Fur seals en-route. Next up is the shipwrecks of:
  • The passenger liner 'Eduard Bohlen' stranded in 1909; she lies 250m away from the shore.
  • The 'Shaunee,' stranded in 1976, further along the coast.
The Conception Bay Flight then sets off along the coast, with the Atlantic surf on the one side and the 'long wall' (Namib Dunes) on the other, before reaching Sandwich Harbour, a wetland of international importance and protected by the RAMSAR Convention. The highest recorded density of lesser and greater flamingo's was recorded at low tide with 7, 791 birds/km. In harmony with the surroundings, you will fly over:
  • Namibia's coastal salt mines, south of Walvis Bay, which attract thousands of birds.
  • Walvis Bay, Namibia's major harbour town and a former enclave to South Africa, which was incorporated into Namibia on March 1, 1994 is our next destination.
  • Miidway between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund you pass the Langstrand Holiday Resort and the Dolphin Park Recreation Resort on the way back to Swakopmund.
