All about the Scenic Flight with Pleasure Flight Safaris.

Being situated at the coast we always try to take the foggy weather

into consideration by delaying the flights to the most preferred

times of day for our scenic flights. We accept no responsibility

for any delays caused by unforeseen circumstances, mechanical

breakdowns, fueling delays, diversions or cancellations due to

adverse weather / weather changes in flight or circumstances

beyond our control.

  1. The "Sossusvlei Classic Flight 630km’s = ±2h15 min

    This is the most popular scenic flight, guaranteed to be the highlight of your holiday ! From Swakopmund we take you in a light aircraft over the Namib Desert, past the Walvis Bay airport to the Kuiseb river. Low-level along the Kuiseb river onto the Desert Ecological Research Unit, Gobabeb founded in 1959. Passing 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. No part of the desert is visually more stunning than Sossusvlei. The warm tints of the sand range from pale apricot to brick orange and deep red, vividly contrasting with the large white clay pans at some of their bases. From Sossusvlei into the Diamond Restricted Area flying over the remains of three old diamond camps and crossing the coastline at Conception Bay passing colonies of Cape Fur seals, the shipwreck of the passenger liner ”Eduard Bohlen” stranded in 1909, she lies 250m away from the shore. Further along the coast another shipwreck, the ”Shaunee” stranded in 1976. Along the coast with the Atlantic surf on the one side and the ”long wall” (Namib Dunes) on the other, we reach 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 we find Namibia’s coastal salt mines, south of Walvis Bay, attracting 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 we pass the Langstrand Holiday Resort and the Dolphin Park Recreation Resort on our way back to Swakopmund.

  3. The "Classic South" 1200km’s = day trip

    Early morning flight over Kuiseb riverbed to Sossusvlei with the highest shifting sand dunes in the world. No part of the desert is visually more stunning than Sossusvlei.

Former stately homes, their grandeur now scoured and demolished by the wind, bear witness to one of the most vivid periods in Namibian history. We return to Lüderitz for a city tour.
