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. 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. We continue our flight over the Diamond Restricted Area, turning towards the coast; we pass the Bogenfels Rock Arch, jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. From the Bogenfels we pass Black Point, Pomona Island and Albatross Island on our way to Lüderitz. 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. Transfer to the airfield and we continue our flight along the “Forbidden Coast” past the shipwreck OTAVI (1945) at Spencer Bay, Meob Bay and on to Conception Bay, where the shipwreck EDUARD BOHLEN (1909) lies approximately 250 m inland and the SHAWNEE (1976). Experience the timelessness and beauty of the Namib on one side, silence and solitude contrasting with the turbulence of the Atlantic Surf on the other. Further flight past 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 to Swakopmund.
