Reasons to Enjoy a Private Fly In Safari in Namibia

Namibia is a land of contrasts, with landscapes ranging from the rusty sand dunes of the Namib Desert to rocky Damaraland and the lush landscapes of the Caprivi strip…

Etosha and the parks in the Caprivi strip are ideal for game watching, but Namibia is also home to wildlife adapted to the desert, such as elephants, lions and desert-adapted black rhinos that roam freely outside the national parks. There is also an opportunity to get acquainted with the cultural perspectives of some different cultures.

All these events and discoveries are traditionally part of a road trip, made either in the form of a car tour or in the form of a guided tour. However, getting to these different places by road is not the only option: an airplane safari is also a great way to get acquainted with what Namibia has to offer, traveling from house to house on a small plane. This is naturally more expensive than traveling by road, but it has certain advantages. Let’s see why this type of transport is perfect for Namibia:

You can avoid (sometimes long)roads

Namibia is the second most populous country in the world with a population of 2.5 people on an area of 824,292 km2 (which is 3.4 times the area of the United Kingdom!). Stretching for about 1300 km from north to south and 1400 km from west to east (along the Caprivi strip), it is a great country. Various interesting sights are usually located quite far from each other, and often you have to cross a lot of empty areas, which can be monotonous.

Thus, a flight to your next accommodation by plane will ideally save you many hours on the road and save you from long trips on the road.

You can get to more isolated and less crowded places

By air, you can also get to places that are difficult to reach from the ground. The remote northwest of Namibia, including the Skeleton coast and Kaokoland (which is now part of the Kunene region), includes limited areas, and it is difficult to reach, as there are only a few trails. Traveling by light plane can take you to places that are most free from tourism.

You can travel with only a few days available:

When time runs out, you can easily visit different ecosystems that are remote from each other. You can specify only the places that interest you, without having to add a few extra nights for intermediate stops, since the route is too long to complete it in one day.
