Based in Swakopmund, Bush Bird is a fully licensed air charter company that provides all kinds of flights : Scenic, Business, Photographic Safaris, Fly-Ins and Day Trips with activities at some of Namibia’s most iconic locations.
The most popular Scenic Flight is the “SOSSUSfly”, sometimes also called Sossus classic or Sossus Scenic. Tourists often regard this flight as the highlight of their holiday. With a duration of +/- 2 hours and 10 minutes, covering about 630km, of which less than 20% has been seen from the ground by car, this scenic flight discovers the ancient desert deep in the heart of Namibia and the southern Skeleton Coast from the air:
Sunlit sand dunes roll and undulate, and are beautiful in a way that is not of this world. Around there is sand and ochre dunes stand sentinel against the blue sky. Add to the sand sea a low level flight along the green Kuiseb to the Kuiseb Canyon, as well along the coastline, which has its own story to tell. Listen carefully – each of the Atlantics wild waves will whisper a different story in your ear: of diamond camps, shipwrecks that rust away on the shoreline, the long wall also called wall of death. The clean golden smell of the desert on a hot day will be with you forever.
Skeleton Coast North
The coast has its own story to tell- listen carefully, each of the Atlantics wild waves will whisper a different story in your ear: numerous shipwrecks, which rust away on the shoreline, on its sandy beaches you’ll find many of only halfway hidden burned bones & skeletons from whales (- and unlucky sailors).
