Epic flying safaris


Travel by light aircraft between camps and lodges, enjoying an incredible bird’s-eye view of the dramatic landscapes stretching beneath you. The continent is magnificent from the sky and the sheer scale of what lies beneath you will blow you away.  

There are many reasons to choose a luxury flying safari – most significantly the experience of soaring high above otherworldly landscapes, soaking in those extraordinary views. It is thrilling beyond your imagination to swoop down and glide at low levels, spotting wildlife and picking out the perfect spot to land for a cup of tea or an exploration on foot. 

In addition, this type of safari gives you the opportunity to touch down in places that are inaccessible by road and discover some of Africa’s most remote areas, such as the Skeleton Coast in Namibia or the deserts and the lakes of northern Kenya. You will also have a private plane with your own pilot and guide who will enlighten you along the way.  

We believe flying safaris would best suit adventurous travellers who are short on time and looking to maximise their trip, as you can cover a lot more ground. This is an incredibly special experience you will never forget.
