Desert Air have a well-maintained 6-seater Cessna 210 light aircraft permanently based on the Sossusvlei Lodge property along with an experienced pilot who also doubles as a trained "aerial" desert guide.
A number of routes are available on request.
A 40 minute trip to Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon will provide you with wonderful aerial photographs of the Vlei and Canyon.
A longer hour trip to the forbidden coast (Sperrgebiet) and the area known as Lange Wand, which is the coastal area of the Namib Desert, will provide you incredible views where a 'sea of desert dunes' meet the Atlantic ocean.
An hour and a half trip over the Sossusvlei area will include Conception Bay, a seal colony, shipwreaks and even old diamond miners camps.
We can also arrange a day trip to Lüderitz where guests can be picked up by a tour guide at the Lüderitz airstrip and taken on a trip to the 'Ghost Town – Kolmanskop' and a tour of the historic town. On the flight back to Sossusvlei Lodge the scenic "Skeleton Coast" of Namibia will be passed with unforgettable views of the numerous shipwrecks and ending the trip over the Namib Desert and Sossusvlei.
Day flights can also be arranged to Swakopmund with a city tour, catamaran cruise, or any other activities.
