Air safaris, light aircraft, Namibia safaris


Namibia Flying Safaris

One of the most scenically diverse countries to experience on an air safari in Africa is Namibia.

You can experience aerial views of the harsh Namib Desert, impressive dunes of Sossusvlei, endless salt pans of Etosha, mountainous Damaraland and the boat wreck littered Skeleton Coast.

Namibia is vast, so an air safari here saves you full day drives on the road. Many of our guests like to combine driving with an air safari which is easily done here due to the circular route that starts and ends in Windhoek.

Air safaris, light aircraft, Savute to Maun, Botswana Safari


Botswana Flying Safaris

Botswana has a beautiful variety of landscapes, many of which are inaccessible by road so a Botswana air safari is certainly popular with our travellers.

Light aircraft flights here are like taxis, taking guests from place to place often with stops in between so you get to experience a few take offs and landings. Alternatively, fly in style with private charter.

Nothing beats flying low over the Okavango Delta and seeing wildlife in the waters and islands of this landscape, or the vastness of the Makgadikadi Pans and Kalahari Desert.

We also recommend factoring in the unique Okavango Delta helicopter safari, where you fly low, with doors off, to maximise your photographic safari chances. With a champagne island stop in the heart of the Delta, you’re experiencing the ultimate luxury Botswana safari activity.

Air Safaris, Light Aircraft, Kenya Safaris


Kenya Flying Safaris

Kenya is one of our all time favourite destinations for luxury air safari holidays because some of the country’s most sensational scenery is most accessible by air, reducing long, strenuous days in the vehicle and adding to the luxury of the experience with aerial views that leave you speechless.

See the Great Rift Valley plunge down to the lakes, expansive plain views of the Masai Mara to the vast, lush mountainous Samburu region.

With frequent scheduled light aircraft, an air safari in Kenya is easily achieved to meet your criteria of time and budget.

We also have scenic flights available in bi-plane, helicopters and private planes for those who seek the ultimate luxury Kenya safari experience.

Air Safari Madagascar


Madagascar Flying Holidays

With a country so massive and roads so poor, we always recommend flying around Madagascar. Most of our itineraries involve at least one or two light aircraft flights to ensure you get more time on the ground in beautiful locations than bumping around for hours traversing difficult roads.

On a Madagascar holiday, we also recommend you allow for delays as there is only one airline and schedules often change at the last minute – all of which we take into consideration when we work together to plan out your Madagascar holiday.

Antananarivo is the capital and you often have to fly in and out multiple times to get to more remote destinations which may mean a few nights here. Luckily it’s a vibrant city with great history, culture and friendly locals.
