This Conception Bay Flight takes off and lands from the Atlantic coastal town of Swakopmund. The flight heads east via the 'Moon Landscape', along the Swakop riverbed to the intersections of the Swakop and Kahn rivers, 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 one side and the 'long wall' (Namib Dunes) on the other. It then reaches 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 that 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.
Midway between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, you pass the Langstrand Holiday Resort and the Dolphin Park Recreation Resort on the way back to Swakopmund.
