African Flying Safaris With Full Experience

Best Fly-in Safaris - Top Air Safaris - Tours by Air in East Africa

We’ve found that the journey by light aircraft is as much a highlight as the actual safari. African Flying Safaris come with many thrills and amazing flight experiences, with spanning views of landscapes across Africa. Sometimes you’re low enough to pick out migrating herds or hippos congregating around a river bend, then you descend onto airstrips that have to be cleared of mischievous wildlife.

Instead of an airport building and luggage carousel, you’ll be greeted by buffalos and elephants! What an amazing way to start your African Safari Holiday! Picked by our 4×4 land cruiser open land cruisers, excitement kicks in to just want to stay in these destinations forever. 

Our African Flying Safaris are scheduled and can be customized to fit your preferences, so as to have your safari holiday in comfort, just as you always dreamt of. Flying Safaris over Masai Mara offers unending views of the savannah plains from the top. Or whether flying from Arusha to Serengeti National Park and crossing the Ngorongoro Crater before landing to start your wildebeest migration adventures

We love how the views from a plane window complement what you see on the ground. Most of our safaris are about exquisite details; from luxury safari camps to the best safari guides and sightings of wildlife. We can’t get enough of how this ignites the imagination. By flying across the national parks you can appreciate the true abundance of animals that roam free in Africa.
