Over the last decade Namibia has grown to become one of the most popular safari destinations on the entire African continent. Twice the size of Germany and three times bigger than the United Kingdom, this vast nation is home to a myriad of breath-taking sites and natural wonders from the rolling sand dunes of Sossusvlei to the immense Fish River Canyon, the world’s second largest canyon.

Although there are several exciting ways to explore this country, including via self-drive and private guided tours, fly-in safaris rank as one of the most popular, especially if you’re thinking of booking an extra-special holiday to Namibia to mark a magical occasion such as a landmark birthday or honeymoon.

What is a Fly-in Safari?

A fly-in safari is a type of safari tour whereby you and your travelling group will be transferred between different destinations in a light aircraft.

Ideal for those who want to avoid navigating Namibia by road, fly-in safaris significantly reduce the time it takes for you to reach different safari destinations, enabling you to see and do more on your Namibia safari holiday.

From private charter flights to shuttle flights and more, here at SecretNamibia we offer plenty of different fly-in safari transfer options and all our fly-in safari tours can be customized and tailored to meet your exact requirements.

Fly-in Safari Benefits

Arrange a Namibia fly-in safari with our holiday specialists today and you’ll be able to:

Save time, See More

Removing the need to travel by road will free you up to focus on the things you really want to see and do on your Namibian safari adventure.

From the city to the middle of ‘nowhere’, book a fly-in safari with us and we can have you in the heart of Sossusvlei sipping your gin and tonic in less than two hours from the capital Windhoek. You could even be out on a game drive in Etosha National Park viewing a lion on the hunt, only hours after landing!

Take In Incredible Views

There’s no better way to appreciate Namibia’s stunning landscapes than travelling by air. From the comfort of your luxury private aircraft you’ll be able to marvel at the astonishing sights below. Glide over vast open plains where wildlife run free, soar over rugged canyons or drift over majestic waterfalls.

Reach the unreachable

Domestic flights within Namibia are few, especially not to the more remote areas, so travelling by light aircraft will take you to those secret places of endless views and absolute quiet.

Once you’ve reached your secret destination, you’ll be able to relax, switch-off and truly unwind away from the crowds. Peace, tranquillity, and serenity await on a dream fly-in safari escape.

Design your fly-in safari with different flight types

At SecretNamibia we’re experts in designing bespoke fly-in safari tours and packages to suit you. Whether you’re a couple on honeymoon or a large group on the adventure of a lifetime we’ve got the perfect transfer option for you:

  • Private Charter – you travel with your designated pilot and your own light aircraft. Tailor your travel times as you go. Your pilot is flexible to meet your activities schedule. Ideal for small groups with a maximum of four people in a Cessna 210 aircraft.

  • Seat Rate Flights – require a minimum of two people. Flights are not always direct. Times are scheduled according to all passengers booked per flight. If you’re only looking to fly certain sections of an itinerary this option would be best for you.

  • Shuttle Flights – don’t have a minimum requirement but only fly to and from certain areas, like Sossusvlei and Etosha, on a ‘taxi’ basis with set flight times. If you’re travelling alone, with limited time and you don’t want to drive, this is the fly-in option for you.

Fly-in Safari Aircrafts

All of the aircrafts we choose to book for our fly-in safaris are selected with comfort and maximising views in mind. It’s also important to note that we only use reputable charter companies to ensure your safety and we negotiate comparable quotes so you can rest assured you’ll always receive the fairest price.

The pilots who will fly your aircraft will be your professional ‘private guide’ in the air. They will monitor weather conditions, communicate your departure and arrival times for transfers and ensure that all runs smoothly and most importantly safely.

The most popular aircraft for charter flights is the Cessna 210, a high-performance light aircraft with a single engine. It’s been around since the hey-day of aviation and has a a super reputation. Cost- effective yet spacious, this plane can accommodate four passengers and is ideal for scenic flights.

Another option for smaller groups of up to five passengers is the Baron, a slightly larger and faster aircraft, operated by one pilot and comprising twin engines.

Ideal for larger groups wishing to travel together in one aircraft, the Cessna 404 is the older brother to the Cessna 210. Affording more comfort and more space it has twin engines and is operated by two pilots.

A workhorse aircraft, the Cessna Caravan is larger still and can seat up to 12 passengers and one pilot. The ‘4×4’ of light aircrafts, the Cessna Caravan is able to operate out of rugged airstrips. Built with a single turbine aircraft with a high wing, it’s an ideal option for scenic aerial photography.

Finally, the Aero Commander is a pressurized, twin- engine aircraft. Suitable for six or seven passengers and flown by two pilots, this aircraft flies at a higher altitude and is a smoother and much faster ride.
