The scenery is great. The flying is not. Coming from the perspective of an European PPL-pilot, I would strongly advise against joining these flights. Our pilot on the flight was highly irresponsible (on V5-FUN); extremely hazardous low-altitude flying in 100 ft / 30 meters above...More

Despite the cost of the trip I thought it would be a beautiful way to see the Namib dessert and was looking forward to the experience. I expected the pilot to have adequate flight experience (1500-2000 hours) and to give the passengers a running commentary...More

For 4.400 namibian $ , you will have an two hour roundtrip flight to the Sossusvlei and back via the coastline. See the dunes, canyons, shipwreck, pelicans, old mines from above. Full service: pick up and bring back to your hotel
