1 Hour flight: Olifants River


Blyde dam boat trips open and compliant to Covid regulations

Activity Description

This one-hour microlight flight takes off from Hoedspruit in the Limpopo province towards the Olifants River over Big Five game reserves in the area. You’ll get spectacular views of the surrounding countryside as you soar through the air. Once you reach the Olifants River, you’ll follow its course.

Spotting game from the air is much easier than on the ground, so you’re sure to see many animals on your microlight flight. After a while, you’ll turn around and head back to Hoedspruit, but your microlight flight doesn’t end there. Enjoy the views and game-spotting all the way back until you land.

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.
