Activity Description

Best done early in the day to make the most of the views, this two-and-a-half-hour microlight flight leaves from Hoedspruit.

The microlight flight will whizz over the Berlin and Lisbon waterfalls and a Tufa waterfall, resembling a weeping face. You land at Graskop at the top of the Drakensberg mountain range to have a continental breakfast before returning via microlight flight to Hoedspruit, enjoying the scenery once more.This flight takes about two and a half hours.

Customer Reviews

Would do it again anytime and can only recommend it! Such a great conversation during the flight (thanks for that) , after the flight (thanks for the coffee). Plus the view over the canyon, I saw buffalos and hippos from above, the mountains, the sun. Everything indescribable and unforgettable. Plus the super breakfast (thanks to the mother ;-) ) and the great hours in the plane. - Stephanie Herrenbrück

Microlight flight above Blyde River Canyon. Had an absolutely fascinating microlight flight in March 2020. Booked the 2h30 tour which included a landing on another airfield with a little breakfast in nature. The weather and the views over the canyon and the game reserves were amazing. When I am back in the area, I would book the exact same trip again.. so, can fully recommend it! - Bjoern Hansen

Due to bad weather forecast we were not be able to fly. So we have to wait till next year. - peter charite
