A family with teenage daughters were thrilled to set off on a direct flight from Cape Town to Windhoek where they were warmly welcomed and transferred in to the city for a relaxed overnight, in preparation for the adventure ahead.
A highlight of their Sossusvlei adventure was gliding above the satin sands of the oldest Living Desert in the World – a truly unique way to experience Namibia’s brilliant vista. Other experiences giving opportunity to disconnect and bond as a family included reserve drives, walks, quad bikes and of course climbing to the top of the massive ‘Big Daddy’, the tallest dune in the area, looking down into sea of sand of Deadvlei. Sunset and the incredibly vast African night sky was truly magical from the rooftop of their Skybeds.
Namibia is a vast country, and with limited time, a Private Charter flight is the perfect way to get around and connect the Dunes with the hauntingly picturesque Skeleton Coast National Park, one of Africa’s most riveting locations. Nature drives, tracking desert-dwelling elephants, giraffe, baboon, and the elusive desert-adapted lion and brown hyena, marvelling at the rich birdlife, taking a walk across a lunar-like landscape to discover fascinating succulents and lichens, and the oldest (and strangest!) desert plant on Earth, the welwitschia are just some of the highlights during the family’s stay. Another highlight was the excursion the Möwebay seal colony wand to visit the remnants of the Suiderkus and Karimona shipwrecks.
After a restful and life-affirming visit, the family departed back to Windhoek by private air charter, in time to connect with their flight home.
