Namibia Expedition 2019
In May 2019 a group of pilots organized a paramotor expedition to Namibia. Among them were Ozone team pilot Kester Haynes, Ozone friend and Brazilian cinematographer Sylvestre Campe and Ozone Power representative in Brazil Daniel Rodrigues. They flew 85 km in 10 days being followed by 4×4 track with camping equipment.
Daniel reports: “To begin with, I would like to say that it was one of the most amazing experiences I had in life! We started on the Skeleton coast, a fishing village with houses without walls, without wires and electric poles on the streets – a city designed perfectly for paramotor pilots! The morning scenery was amazing, cold and ghostly mist, several wrecks and skeletons along the way… After a few hours flying in this magnificent place, we entered the gigantic desert and felt that cold in the belly! A change of temperature, a yellowish color and the feeling of endless space and freedom, what a stunning scenery! We were moving fast with a good tail wind to a gigantic volcanic crater, where we find our support team with several tents already mounted, a perfect to camp. We camp in places, which looked like scenarios of space movies, every night the sky was so clear we could see millions stars, planets and even the galaxy.
Engines and wings behaved once again too well, not causing any landing without planning on remote areas or hungry lions!
It was really a unique, collective and individual life experience, I recommend and I’ll be back. I arrived full of expectations, out crying of happiness and that feeling of having lived an odd moment in my life! I made 25 flights, total 885,5 kilometers in 20 hours!”
We are truly blast by all those beautiful photos from their trip!
Cheers, form all the Ozone Team
