A fly-in safari makes use of light aircraft to transfer you between locations within a safari destination, saving you time moving between attractions so that you can see and do more on your vacation.
The best thing about flying from location to location – aside from the advantages of getting from point A to point B quickly and efficiently – is that you gain an aerial overview of the landscapes you will explore on the ground.
Expect spectacular panoramas and the benefit of a better understanding of the wilderness you journey through – when your guide mentions the mountains that border the area, or the vastness of the plains, your aerial viewpoint gives you the full picture.
A fly-in safari usually makes use of light aircraft, including single prop planes, and dirt landing strips. For nervous flyers, this is not the best way to explore Africa. But for most safari travellers, a fly-in safari has an added layer of thrill and excitement to the obvious advantages of seeing and doing more in less time.
