Flying Safari

The aerial view of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls or Kenya’s Chyulu Hills is guaranteed to be a highlight of any Great Plains safari.

An African flying safari offers a unique opportunity to view the African plains from an eagle’s or vulture’s perspective. It is an unparalleled voyage of discovery.

Whether you explore Botswana’s Okavango Delta, Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls or Kenya’s Chyulu Hills, a flying safari will drop a few jaws as you get to see these incredible landscapes from a new perspective.

Luckily, most of our properties in Zimbabwe, Kenya and Botswana are accessed by air and offer scheduled air transfers between camps. As you will surely want more, additional flying safari experiences are expertly booked with us.
