this website's foremost purpose is to showcase a few possibilities. don’t forget that virtually everything we do is tailor made. if we manage to entice you to send us an email about your next possible holiday then we have succeeded. so even if you do not find anything on this site that speaks to you – send us an email with your ideas and dreams. worst case scenario, should we not be able to assist, at least we can show you in the right direction.

For one or two people this scheduled air taxi (based on fixed seat rates) from Windhoek and Swakopmund to the Sossusvlei area and Wolwedans, is the answer. The service is offered by NatureWings and seats can be booked directly, or through a tour operator. Chartering a private plane provides you with a greater deal of flexibility. You travel when it pleases you, no need to adhere to rigid schedules. Chartering a Cessna 210 makes sense for three or four people and a larger plane for bigger groups. Charters normally take you to other destinations as well. You can also book a combination of charter and DuneHopper. Whether you opt for the DuneHopper or book a private charter, you will enjoy a unique bird’s eye view of Namibia. The rates and departure times are subject to change without further notice
– please always ask for current schedule and rates
*The above packages are subject to availability at the time of booking.
