Travel in comfort and style on a thrilling sky safari

Opting for a light aircraft fly-in safari rather than driving overland means that you'll be travelling in style, following in the footsteps of the early safari adventurers from the 1920s – the golden age of African aviation. This scenic way to travel between destinations offers a bird’s eye view of the national parks below, and reduced travelling times leave more time for wildlife viewing or relaxing in your luxury accommodation. In some destinations – like southern Tanzania where it’s too remote to travel to by road, or Botswana, where much of the region is surrounded by water – a light aircraft is the easiest way to get around.

Light aircraft flights land at airstrips right in the heart of the national parks and you’ll spot wildlife from the outset. At your chosen camps or lodges, you’ll then head out on wildlife viewing adventures in 4x4s, river boats or traditional mokoro canoes accompanied by expert guides and trackers.
