DESCRIPTION

From Swakopmund Airport we fly low-level over the Kuiseb Canyon and Tsondabvlei, the only known breeding area for the Lappet Face Vulture in southern Namibia, towards the highest shifting sand dunes in the world at Sossusvlei.
From there we pass over the Diamond Restricted area where you will still find three old diamond camps before we reach Conception bay. After passing colonies of Cape fur seals, we see shipwrecks along the coast of the Eduard Bohlen (1909) 500m from the shore and the Shawnee(1976). We pass the Long wall (Namib dunes) before reaching Sandwich Harbour, a wetland of international importance and protected by the Ramsar Convention. We pass the coastal
salt mines south of Walvis Bay, attracting thousands of birds. Walvis Bay, Namibia’s major harbour town is our next destination. Midway between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, we pass the
Langstrand Holiday Resort and the Dolphin Park Resort on our way back to Swakopmund.
