Namibia: Fly In Ultimate Luxury Package

This once-in-a-lifetime journey takes you to some of the most inaccessible, seldom-visited, and ruggedly beautiful places on earth. Explore the highlights of Namibia, including Onguma Game Reserve, Damaraland, Hoanib, Skeleton Coast, and Sossusvlei staying in unique luxury lodges that showcase the hidden gems of each region.

This Namibia trip package is perfect for the adventurous couple who want to explore the unknown, visiting remote and untouched areas where few have ventured before. Namibia is home to far-reaching, otherworldly landscapes; breathtaking sunsets; and exclusive, remote luxury camps where you’ll feel as if you alone can enjoy these jaw-dropping experiences.

We created this Namibia: Fly In Ultimate Luxury Package for a couple from Texas celebrating their wedding anniversary. They decided to make the most of their time in Namibia by traveling around the country on scenic flights instead of long drives.

They started their Namibia: Fly In Ultimate Luxury Package in Etosha National Park and the Onguma Game Reserve. They spent their mornings on memorable game drives within the Etosha National Park with their lodge guide. Then, they rested after lunch. They ended their days on evening game ending with sundowners, experiencing that famous African drives with sun sunset.

Next they flew to Damaraland. Damaraland is typified by displays of color, magnificent table topped mountains, rock formations and bizarre-looking vegetation. The present-day landscape has been formed by the erosion of wind, water and geological forces which have formed rolling hills, dunes, gravel plains and ancient river terraces. The couple visited Twyfelfontein, Burnt Mountain, the Organ Pipes and looked for desert adapted elephants.

Continuing their Namibia: Fly In Ultimate Luxury Package, they flew to Hoanib Valley Camp, a fabulous bush camp in the remote Kaokoveld region, where they visited a local Himba village and even tracked endangered black rhinos on foot! After 2 nights at Hoanib, they flew to the unique, mysterious, and practically untouched landscape of the Skeleton Coast. They spent 3 nights at Shipwreck Lodge—the only accommodation on the Skeleton Coast. Exploring this incredible region, where few have ever set foot before, was a highlight of their trip.

Next, they flew to Swakopmund, taking in dramatic scenery and some of the most remote, inaccessible areas in the world. In Swakopmund, they got a taste of bohemian city life and took a cruise to see the local seals and dolphins.

And then onto NamibRand Nature Reserve on their Namibia: Fly In Ultimate Luxury Package they flew over desert dunes and the home to the famous Sossusvlei and Deadvlei, as well as the highest sand dunes in the world. They spent 2 days exploring the area, overnighting in a luxurious, boutique bush camp.

At last, their Namibia: Fly In Ultimate Luxury Package came to an end and it was time to head back to Windhoek and make the journey home.

The flight first stops at Ongava Airstrip before continuing on to Twyfelfontein Airstrip in Damaraland.

The present-day landscape has been formed by the erosion of wind, water and geological forces which have formed rolling hills, dunes, gravel plains and ancient river terraces. It is the variety and loneliness of the area as well as the scenic splendor which will reward and astound you, giving one an authenticunderstanding of the word ‘wilderness’. Upon arrival at a local airstrip, you will be met by a local guide who will transfer you to the camp with time to settle in.

As the elephants are mostly active in the mornings you will normally have the best chance to see them then before returning to camp for lunch. Your guide will arrange to fit in a visit to Twyfelfontein and other nearby attractions at a suitable time if you haven’t already done so the previous day.

dunes).
