Namibia with Wilderness Safaris

In and Around Namibia

From the moment you arrive in Africa, to your departure and every point in between, Wilderness Safaris people are ready and waiting for you. We want to ensure as seamless and smooth an experience as possible and in Namibia, this first takes the form of a “meet and greet” at the Windhoek International Airport where a representative of Wilderness Safaris welcomes you, before taking you through to your next flight or transfer, or to the comfortable air-conditioned lounge where you can relax between flights.

Getting to Namibia

By Air

Getting into Namibia is generally by air into Hosea Kutako International Airport just outside Windhoek. Aside from being the main access point to the wilderness areas, Windhoek is also our national operational base and the hub for Wilderness Air, our own “bush airline.”

By Land

Generally, one can self-drive into Namibia and to all our camps, however distances are great and therefore we do recommend visiting our camps by air.

In Namibia one drives on the left-hand side of the road. The speed limit is usually 60 kilometres per hour in built up areas, 70 kilometres per hour on gravel roads and 120 kilometres per hour on major tar roads. Safety belts must be used at all times. The driver’s license needs to be in English with a photograph. If not, an International driver’s license will be required. Please also check with your travel consultant regarding the minimum age.

Wilderness Air - How it Works

Wilderness Air is a key element of your safari experience, flying you between remote camps and then back to Windhoek for onward connections. The service is more than a simple connection however; rather, the aerial transfers between camps allow a totally different impression and appreciation of the country below – from the enormous sand dunes, open plains and rugged valleys to the escarpments and mountains.

Benefits of Wilderness Air

In operation since 1991, and with an impeccable safety record, Wilderness Air offers scheduled transfers between Wilderness camps and the regional hubs and also a private charter service using a varied fleet of light aircraft. These aircraft are perfectly suited to operating in remote bush conditions. Wilderness Air is owned and operated by Wilderness Safaris.
