game viewing from R3150 per person

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.

1-hour flight – Olifants River from R3150 per person

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 back until you land.
