1 Hour flight: Blyde River Canyon including game viewing


Blyde dam boat trips open and compliant to Covid regulations

Activity Description

This flight takes 1 hour. It includes a flight over the Blyde River Dam and above the Blyde River Canyon with a great view of the Three Rondawels and returns to Hoedspruit to include approximately 10-15 minutes of game viewing over the Big 5 reserves near Hoedspruit. On your microlight flight, you’ll see for miles as you whizz above the ground and might be lucky enough to spot game, including the Big Five, as it’s much easier to see animals from the air. At the end of your microlight flight, you’ll have a unique perspective on this beautiful part of the country.

You have the option to sit and experience the flight and view the game or you can have hands on experience from the first flight should you so wish. The choice is yours.
