2016-04-26: Namibia by Air

I’ve seen only a small portion of Namibia, but what I did see, was absolutely breathtaking.  We utilized small plane transfers to move between lodges in different regions, and combined a scenic air tour of the coast on one of the transfer legs, in order to squeeze in a bit more sightseeing into a very picked itinerary.  I’ve posted a few photos from the air transfers before, but decided to edit the balance I had flagged and create a single post of images.

I hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful day!

Gorgeous textures in the hills, and such a wide variety of colours.

Namibia By Air-3

There were amazing views in every direction, and through all the flights, we only saw a handful of vehicles, until we got very close to either Windhoek or Swakopmund.

Red dunes as far as the eye can see, topped with a fine layer of fog.

Namibia By Air-6

I believe this was an abandoned mining community, but I’m not 100% sure. Whatever it was, the sand is reclaiming the land back to nature.

Tire tracks along the beach of people that had recently been by to view the wrecks up close.

We flew over several huge flocks of flamingos… I hope one day to see these birds up close to photograph them.
