The Republic of Namibia is located within the desert strip of the Tropic of Capricorn and in its greater proportion is made up of plateaus. Its population is concentrated, above all, in the north and in the center of the country, since these areas register the most abundant rains. Until the 1960s, the country’s economy had been based mainly on fishing and livestock. Later, it was expanded with mining, since the country has important reserves of copper, lead, zinc, cadmium and uranium, among other minerals.
One of the areas visited, the north, has sparsely populated regions due to the lack of accessibility and road infrastructure, such as the Kunene River, where the Himba live, as well as the Etosha National Park, one of the best locations for observing the so-called Big Five of Africa. Do you know what animals they are?
Along the entire Atlantic coastline there is the Namib Desert, an unspoiled landscape with huge sand dunes that is home to the Skeleton Coast.
Altogether, it is a country of great contrasts, with modern cities, such as Windhoek, the capital, and wild and dry areas as if they had just been taken from the planet Mars.
Designed to avoid long and tiring trips by car, this trip allows you to discover, from the heights, adventure and nature in the westernmost part of the country and visit the most unique places seen from the air on land.
The Atlantic coast, the Namib desert, nature reserves and some remote places are accessible thanks to the private plane for exclusive use in which we will travel. From this very privileged observation point, we will discover a three-dimensional facet of the landscape, which accentuates the feeling of having no barriers and of being able to reach the infinite panorama that is observed. Apart from crowded circuits, the particularity of the trip also resides in the intense and special way in which it is lived.
Excursions on foot or by boat and safaris in 4×4 provide a complementary and vivid vision of Namibia, a desert country, unexplored, but fascinating.
