Flying over Namibia

April-May 2007

Back to main Namibia gallery


The easiest way to get around the vast distances of Namibia is by light aircraft. They also provide a great opportunity for perspective and some interesting images.

Most of my flights were with Sefofane Air, an arm of Wilderness Safaris who provide charter services within Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Interestingly, Sefofane were one of the first operators to begin using GPS back in 1991 to aid the navigation between the various remote camps. Today, it is hard to imagine flying without GPS, especially in Namibia where there are very between the various remote camps. Today, it is hard to imagine flying without GPS, especially in Namibia where there are very few, if any, man-made structures or roads to use as visual waypoints.

The main highlights were the flight from Sossuvlei across the Namib Desert to the Antlantic coast and then north to Swakopmund, much of it at an altitude of only 500ft, the abstract-esque shot of Flamingos over the coloured waters of Walvis Bay and the flight from Swakopmund north into the Damaraland.
