Low Level Flying
Low level flying over the vastly unpopulated areas of Southern Africa is the most amazing way to see and experience the topography, landscape and animals. From within 1000 feet of the ground, animals as small as warthogs are clearly visible, you can see the flowers on the bushes, you can appreciate the rocks jutting from the earths crust. The land comes to life and you are given a perspective only birds can appreciate.
Airliners are a great way to get from point “A” to “B” but you don’t experience anything in between. There is no better way to see Africa than from a small bush airplane like the Cessna 206 we flew from Kenya to Namibia and back. During our flying safari we were able to experience both the Eastern and Western coasts of Africa. We experienced the vastly unpopulated terrain of Tanzania, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia. We flew over 700 miles down the coast of Namibia, seeing the Skeleton coast and Namib desert, there is no better way to enjoy this pristine and sometimes incredibly harsh environment. We flew over the beautiful red sand dunes of the Sossusvlei salt and clay plans, the vast open savannah of Tanzania, the harsh and uninhabitable Namib Desert. The list of incredible sights in Africa are endless and depending on what topography you love, you can find it in during a flying safari in Africa.
