Scenic Flight along the Skeleton Coast

The Skeleton Coast is named after the bones of whales left behind by whaling ships, though could just as well commemorate the sailors whose ships were wrecked by a combination of treachourous currents, blinding fogs, off-shore rocks and strong surf. The rugged coast, long Atlantic rollers, striking shipwrecks and inland dunes are best seen from above, with a number of routes and durations available.

Some of the flights concentrate solely on the coastal area. Viewing the jagged coastline and the remains of wrecked shops is quite a sight and a chilling reminder of lives lost and dramas played out over the centuries. Depending on the precise route and duration of the flight you’ll also see a large colony of Cape fur seals at Cape Cross, flocks of flamingos, glistening saltpans and the eerie remains of camps once used by diamond miners.

Longer flights travel inland, too, giving you a magnificent bird’s eye views of the huge dunes at Sossusvlei, dry river beds and the starkly beautiful Namib Desert.A flight over the Skeleton Coast will add a very special element to your holiday and leave you awed at the vast size and beauty of this region.
