Early morning flight over the Kuiseb river to Sossusvlei with the highest shifting sand dunes in the world. From Sossusvlei flight over the 2 000m high dolomitic Naukluft mountains past the extinct Brukaros volcano to the Fishriver Canyon low-level flight to the largest canyon in Africa, the Fishriver Canyon up to Ai Ais (Zigg-zagg over Canyon). We continue our flight over the Diamond Restricted Area directly to Lüderitz Bucht. Stop over at Lüderitz with a guided tour of the ghost town, Kolmanskop. Kolmanskop was once the focal point of a glittering diamond rush. 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. The sheer isolation of the town and distinctly German colonial architecture give it a historic charm. Round off the day with lunch at a Hotel. Afternoon flight along the “Forbidden Coast” past the shipwreck OTAVI (1945) at Spencer Bay, Meob Bay on to Conception Bay, the shipwreck EDUARD BOHLEN (1909) which lies approximately 250m inland and the SHAUWNEE (1976). Further flight, 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.
