Getting to Namibia
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.”
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.
