Luxury Flying Safari around Namibia.
Depart from Eros Airport in Windhoek on your charter flight to the Etosha National Park. From the Mokuti airstrip, you transfer to the luxury Onguma Tented camp. The Camp is only eight kilometres from the Von Lindquist Gate on the eastern outskirts of the Etosha National Park. Originally part of the greater Etosha Game Reserve, Onguma is one of Namibia's best-kept secrets. Join an afternoon activity on the reserve. The Onguma reserve covers an area of 20 000 hectare and incorporates ecological ... substrata such as savannah, bushveld, omuramba and dry pan. Age-old and well-worn migration routes, once used by elephant and buffalo wander through Onguma's three dry riverbeds. The reserve boasts over thirty different animal species. Plains game roam freely on the reserve and predators although not easy to spot are nevertheless common residents of the area. Onguma also became part of an innovative custodianship project relating to the black rhino. Six black rhino were darted in Etosha National park and shipped to the reserve. More than 300 bird species can be viewed at Onguma. The reserve boasts the biggest breeding colony of white-backed vultures in Namibia. During the summer months Onguma becomes a bird-watcher’s paradise, with thousands of species migrating to wetlands created by the seasonal rains.
After a leisurely breakfast, drive into the park for excellent game viewing. You can go for the morning or opt to spend the whole day around the waterholes - the choice is yours. If you spend the day, we can arrange for lunch packs at the lodge or you can have lunch at one of the Rest Camps inside the Park. Etosha consists of 22,270 kilometers of saline desert, savannah and woodlands and is one of the largest parks in Africa. ... Its definitive feature is the pan, a vast, shallow depression of approximately 5 000 kilometers. Of the 114 mammal species found in the park, several are rare and endangered, such as the black rhino and black- faced impala. The former is endemic to north-western Namibia and south western Angola. Etosha's current population of approximately 300 black rhinos represents one of the few growing populations in the world. The park’s elephants are reputed to be some of the largest in Africa, the tallest ones measuring up to 4 meters at the shoulder. Their tusks are however relatively small, due to genetic defects and mineral deficiencies in their diet. Having spent a day in the park (or just the morning - as you please) return to Onguma for a relaxed afternoon and sundowner.
After a leisurely breakfast, depart for Damaraland, where you land at noon. Mowani Mountain Camp is set in the Twyfelfontein Conservancy between the Ugab and Huab Rivers. Discover the pool deck, lodged between the boulders where you can soak up the sun whilst enjoying a refreshing drink and admire the breath-taking views from your deck chair. Lunch is followed by a siesta and an afternoon excursion to the ancient rock engravings of Twyfelfontein. Return to the camp for sundowners and dinner. Mowani is taken ... from the word M'Wane, meaning 'Place of God' and it is here that you will find the true meaning of peace and tranquillity. The luxury-tented accommodation is built unobtrusively to ensure minimum impact on the natural environment. The stilt-like supports of the tents ensure that very little excavation was needed to create this special oasis. Much care has been taken with the design of the public areas, creating the impression of an African Village, with dome-like thatched structures that blend in with the imposing boulders, which are scattered around the outcrops.
After breakfast, there’s an excursion to the world-famous Petroglyphs at Twyfelfontein and a chance to feel how the San (Bushman) people communicated with their ancestors. Twyfelfontein was Namibia’s first world heritage. Return to the Camp for lunch and a leisurely afternoon by the pool. Alternatively, join a game drive down the riverbed in search for the rare desert elephant.
After breakfast, your charter flight will commence towards the coastal town of Swakopmund. Time permitting, there’s a short city tour and maybe an activity like quad biking (at your own expense). The pilot can assist in arranging these. Lunch at Wolwedans is included; lunch at Swakopmund is not. You continue towards the. The flight to. The flight to NamibRand Nature Reserve is exceptionally scenic and is at the best time of the day imaginable. It will take you along the coast ... to Sandwich harbour, over a sea of sand (here you cannot but be reminded of the film ‘The English Patient’ and circle over the towering dunes of Sossusvlei to Wolwedans. We opted to do Sossusvlei from the air with the Visions tour and stay above the maddening crowds, buses and buzz. Indulge yourself and observe, in its entirety, Namibia's number one tourist attraction from the best viewpoint imaginable (the sky). Arrive at Wolwedans just in time for sundowners after settling into your beautiful chalet with its own private veranda and a breathtaking view of the dunes, plains and distant mountains. Freshen up and enjoy a three-course candlelight dinner under a blanket of stars.
After breakfast, depart on a day-safari on the NamibRand Nature Reserve with a delicious picnic lunch served en-route. Absorb the unique NamibRand Nature Reserve landscape during your excursions by Land Rover through the dunes, endless grassy plains and along mystical mountain formations. You could encounter large and small desert-dwellers, learn about their unique habits and explore the ancient hunting spots of the Bushmen. Revel in the incredible landscape around you and Wolwedans' commitment to guest and nature alike. Here, in this land ... of stretching blue skies, endless plains and countless creatures enacting natures savagely exciting passion play, you will find beauty feeding your soul, tranquillity to clear your mind and space for your imagination to fly! Do a morning excursion (or full day depending on logistics and time of year) on the Reserve, returning to the Lodge for lunch and a siesta during the midday heat. Later in the afternoon, guests can enjoy coffee and cake before joining everyone for sundowners on the deck preceding dinner.
After breakfast, you are transferred to the airstrip to bid Wolwedans farewell and commence your return flight to Windhoek (Eros) where you will arrive before 11h00 where your tour ends. There might be other passengers on this flight.
