Skeleton Coast Scenic - 360km’s = 1h30min
This flight takes you from Swakopmund east over the Moon Landscape, along the Swakop and Khan river. Routing southwards we pass Walvisbay airport and the Kuiseb river which is also the natural border for the dune formation. Over the shifting sand dunes we reach the coast at Conception Bay passing Cape fur seals, the shipwrecked Eduard Bohlen (1909), 250m from the shore.
Also the shipwreck of the Shawnee (1976) We fly along the coast with the Atlantic surg on the one side and the Long Wall (namib dunes) on the other. We reach Sandwich Harbour, a wetland of international importence and protected by the Ramsar Convention. In harmony with the surroundings we find Namibias salt mines south of Walvis Bay attracting thousands of birds. Walvis Bay, Namibias major harbour town is our next destination.
Between WalvisBay and Swakopmund we pass the Langstrand Holiday Resort and Dolphin Park Resort on our way back to Swakopmund.
