Covering some of the finest and most iconic areas of Namibia, Wings over Namibia is a flying safari that showcases the legendary dunes of Sossusvlei, the rugged topography of the Damaraland and Kaokoveld region with its desert-adapted elephant, as well as the wildlife of Etosha National Park and surrounds. The camps are set within private concessions and Wilderness Air transfers guests seamlessly between destinations.

Namibia is the epitome of open space: our concessions offer an incredible 30 230 hectares (74 700 acres) per guest! It is home to diverse and unique biomes like the Namib, the oldest desert in the world, the shimmering saltpans of Etosha and equally fascinating local cultures.

This journey retains the essence of Wilderness Safaris' origins, where we sought out prime wilderness areas throughout southern Africa and channelled our passion into guiding safaris that were educational and fun-filled. Continuing with this ethos, Wings over Namibia allows guests to experience the country's dramatic scenery along with its desert-adapted wildlife and clear, star-filled night skies. All along, there is the wonderful opportunity to observe this vast country from the air.

Days 1-2 | Little Kulala - Kulala Wilderness Reserve, Sossusvlei

Depart from Windhoek by air and enjoy awe-inspiring views of the mountains and the desert floor.

Akagera National park is a home for animals like elephant buffalo, Giraffe, zebra and more than a dozen types of antelope inhabit the park, most commonly the handsome chestnut-coated impala, but also the diminutive oribi and secretive bushbuck, as well as the ungainly tsessebe and the world's largest antelope, the statuesque Cape eland.

You will be at one with nature, listening to the bubbling, singing frogs and seeking out the Big 5. This tour allows families, couples, and friends alike to truly immerse themselves in the beauty that is Botswana.

Day 1-3 | Vumbura Plains North - Okavango Delta

Depart Maun for Vumbura Plains North in the Okavango Delta. Situated in the northwestern corner of Botswana, the Okavango Delta is a World Heritage Site as it is the largest inland delta in the world. The magnificent Okavango River sprawls out over the dry sands of the Kalahari Desert forming this flourishing waterlogged oasis featuring countless meandering waterways and crystal clear lagoons studded with water lilies, as well as fertile floodplains and reeded islands inhabited with abundant wildlife. The Okavango Delta stretches over 15000 square kilometres. Commonly spotted animals include: lion, rhino, leopard, giraffe, hippos, elephants, crocodiles and countless species of bird.
There is no better way of viewing game and exploring the Okavango than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe). Take to the skies in style and soar silently over the rich ecosystem of the Okavango Delta in a hot air balloon.

Days 4-6 | Abu Camp - Okavango Delta

Game drives in the enormous private concession traverse wonderfully varied landscapes and give you the best opportunities to view and photograph birds, predators, and herds of elephant and buffalo at close quarters. Early mornings and late afternoons are generally the best times to see wildlife, as animals are generally more active when it's cooler.
Opt to partake in elephant conservation efforts. The whole premise on which Abu is based is that of elephant conservation. The great paradox of elephant conservation is that while many African countries are experiencing rapidly declining elephant populations, others - such as Botswana - must cope with burgeoning numbers. The Abu Herd members are eloquent ambassadors for elephant conservation, and several elephants have been reintroduced to the wild, where they continue to provide valuable data to local researchers and conservationists. Several of these elephants have remained in the Abu concession, and cause much delight all round when their wanderings bring them close to camp. You will soon form a deep and enduring connection to each elephant - a sense of belonging which is both humbling and uplifting.

Days 7-9 | Mombo Camp - Moremi Game Reserve

The game viewing here is well regarded as some of the finest in Africa. Game surrounds camp at all times of the year with the Mombo concession being one of the very few places in Africa to provide world class game viewing throughout all the seasons. Despite Mombo Camp being inside the Moremi Game Reserve where night drives are not allowed, the game viewing is exceptionally good, so good that you don't even need to leave the camp to see something spectacular.
