The accommodations we use in these packages range from eco-friendly wilderness camps to the most sumptuous safari lodges imaginable, ensuring a complement to every budget, destination interest or special requirements.

To ensure a rewarding game viewing experience for all guests, the safari lodges make use of modified open-air 4x4 vehicles - which occasionally venture off-road for close encounters or tracking pursuits. Seating is advantageously limited.

Fly-in Safaris

1

Awe-inspiring wilderness areas

The destinations that we use for our fly-in safari packages are remarkably diverse and remote, scattered across all the wildest corners of Southern Africa. The one thing that they have in common is the pristine nature of their surroundings. Many of these areas are not accessible (or less accessible) via overland journeys, which opens you up to a wider scope of safari options.

2

All-inclusive convenience

The inclusive nature of our fly-in safaris ensures hassle-free getaways, where all you really need to do is show up for your adventure. Your flights, transfers, accommodation, meals and safari activities are all taken care of. Depending on the lodge, selected beverages and laundry services might also be included. Just set some funds aside for tipping, spa treatments and premium liquor.

3

Less travel time, more adventure

A fly-in safari means minimal time spent on the road or in transit and maximum time partaking in safari activities or savoring the creature comforts of your luxury safari lodge. This is particularly ideal if your time in our part of the world is limited and you would prefer to take full advantage of what is available to you. It also makes it possible to add a wider variety of destinations to your itinerary.

4

Personal attention & high service levels

The safari lodges that we use for our fly-in safaris are characteristically intimate and have been selected for their impeccable service levels. You will not be staying at an oversized resort where you are just another room number. You will undoubtedly be made to feel special and truly at home, with all your needs catered for.

5

At your leisure

Considering the amount of time you'll cut out of traveling, substantial hours may be spent unwinding from the rat race. There is no strict schedule when it comes to your fly-in safari - you decide whether or not you'd like to join the game drives or bush walks or rather relax poolside, get lost in a book or pamper yourself with a treatment in the spa.

Our fly-in safari experiences are characterized by the most desirable blend of relaxation and exhilaration. While many travelers are drawn to the easy the convenience of these packages, there is much more to these experiences than ensuring that all the finer details are secured. Being out in the wilderness at a sumptuous safari lodge is as soothing to the soul as it is exciting - a combination that that leaves a lasting effect and inevitably draws travelers back to Southern Africa for more wild adventures.

Hassle-free and tidily inclusive so that you want for naught, the lack of a strict schedule and over-stimulus of too many distinct attractions and activities will heighten your senses to your incomparable surroundings. This is integral to the pleasure of a fly-in safari experience - tuning out from civilization and tuning back into the most fundamental aspects of how your natural surroundings can restore and invigorate you. Cutting out travel, en route points of interest and third party excursions ensures minimal interruptions.

Venture out on game drives when you wish, or simply savor the intimate atmosphere of your safari lodge. Removing ample time spent on the road means more time to do what speaks to your soul. Your remote location means negligible interaction with others (or as much as you'd prefer) and little in the way of distraction. Your fly-in safari is about you and the most rewarding African travel experience that you can hope for.

Our fly-in safaris venture to the all the finest wilderness areas in South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and even the remote islands and beaches of Mozambique. Destinations that are particularly off the beaten track may require charter flights, like the Okavango Delta, Savute, Linyanti, South Luangwa, Kafue and Lower Zambezi. This is one of the major drawing cards of a fly-in safari - these areas are very rarely accessible via overland journey.

The most affordable and convenient fly-in safaris are offered in South Africa, with its abundance of private game reserves that are largely reachable via regional airports. Overland transfers are available to Namibia's sought-after safari destinations like Etosha and Sossusvlei, but the distances can be staggering and may encroach on valuable time that can be better purposed on safari activities and leisure.
