SOSSUSVLEI SCENIC ROUTE 2


CESSNA FLIGHTS

The Sossusvlei scenic flight routes are done in our Desert Air Cessna aircraft. We operate a Cessna 206/210 single engine, fixed winged aircraft. With a maximum of 5 passengers per flight. Each passenger has a window seat.

We do not have any fixed scheduled times for all our scenic flights, however we are sure to schedule them for the best time of the day. All flights to the coast (Route 2 & 3 ) we suggest to be done in the late afternoon for sunset. The Route 1 can either be done early morning shortly after sunrise or late afternoon just before sunset.

ABOUT ROUTE 2

From the Sossusvlei Lodge airstrip the aircraft takes off in a Westerly direction. After take off the aircraft does a left hand turn, flying around the mountain to Sesriem Canyon. It passes the canyon on the western side. This gives the clients a great view of the whole canyon.

The aircraft then flies south west to enter the Dune Corridor. Once in the dune corridor the aircraft flies to pass dune 45 on the southern side.

The Aircraft will pass Sossusvlei on the Northern side. On the way to Sossusvlei the clients will be able to see Hidden vlei and Cessna pan. The clients will see the pans on the left hand side.

From Sossusvlei the aircraft will route to Deadvlei. Once at Deadvlei the aircraft does a, slight left wing low, left hand turn around Deadvlei. Sossusvlei as well as Deadvlei will be seen on the left hand side.

Once completing the turn at Deadvlei the aircraft will then do a right hand turn routing the coast (Black Rock). On the left hand side the clients will be able to see White Mountain.

Along the coastline the clients will be able to see the vast extent of where the Dunes meet the ocean. Along the Coastline the clients will also be able to see bird colonies that occupy the beaches of Namibia.

At Meob bay or the famous Langewand the aircraft will then do a right hand turn to route back to Elim dune. On Route to Elim dune, in the grass plains, the clients will be able to see the famous Fairy Circles. In the grass plains there is the possibility of seeing game e.g. Oryx, Springbok and Ostrich. From Elim dune the aircraft flies directly to the airstrip.
