Detailed Description of this trip:
This superb flying safari has monthly guaranteed departures. We fly from Lanseria Airport in Johannesburg through the prime areas of Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe with a private aircraft. The aircraft and pilot stay with the group throughout, and the group gets the benefit of not having to worry about scheduled airlines time tables, thus maximizing time spent in all areas.
This Trip is Recommended for:
Day 1-2 - Johannesburg
The Namib Desert - Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp.
The safari departs early morning from Lanseria Airport in Johannesburg for Keetmanshoop in Namibia. It is then a one hour twenty minute flight up to the Namib Desert and to Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp where we spend 2 nights.
This is where one finds the highest sand dunes in the world, with Oryx and Springbok antelope providing a contrast to the incredible desert scenery.
Day 3-4 - Ongava Game Reserve
Etosha and Ongava Lodge.
The morning flight takes guests over the dunes of the Namib and over Sossusvlei itself for an aerial view of the dunes and then due westwards to Meob Bay on the shores of the southern Skeleton Coast. There is spectacular desert and Skeleton Coast scenery. We land at Swakopmund.
The group is then transferred to Walvis Bay harbour by road for a boat trip (weather permitting) out to sea which will allow guests the opportunity to view seals, schools of dolphins swimming alongside the boat and sometimes even penguins and whales.
Following a delicious seafood lunch, the group flies up the coast before turning east to fly up to Ongava Lodge for two nights. This is the base for our Etosha experience.
Day 5-6 - Okavango
The Central Okavango and Jao Camp.
Private Car Service
We depart from Ongava for Maun in Botswana.
From Maun the group flies onto Jao Camp in the heart of the Okavango and will enjoy the complete contrast from the Namib Desert.
The waterways of the Okavango and the wildlife of this area are very special.
Day 7-8 - Botswana
Moremi Game Reserve - Mombo Camp.
From Jao, we fly to Mombo for the game viewing highlight of the safari.
Day 9-10 - Victoria Falls
The River Club and Victoria Falls.

We stay overnight at The River Club and enjoy the sights and sounds of Victoria Falls.
Day 11-12 - Victoria Falls
Mana Pools - Chikwenya.
Guests drive across the famous bridge across the Zambezi River with great views on to the Victoria Falls themselves. We view the Falls from the Zimbabwe side before flying onto Mana Pools and possibly the most scenic of all the parks on this safari. Here guests may stay at Chikwenya.
Day 13 - Johannesburg
The Safari Ends.
After our last game activity in the Mana Pools area, we fly back to Lanseria Airport in Johannesburg where we land in the afternoon, giving guests enough time to connect to their international flights - or travel onto places like Cape Town.
