Our fly-in safari starts at Cape Town’s beautiful Victoria & Alfred Waterfront where our crew will give you a warm welcome at our airport terminal at the previously arranged time of your arrival. We will determine your body weight for the purpose of establishing loading capacity on board, whereupon you will be familiarised with our safety instructions and handed a lifejacket. Following this, our flight attendants will accompany you to the helicopter, where our pilot will introduce himself and welcome you on board.
With the gradual increase in rotation of the rotor blades, the helicopter lifts off with a jerk and flies vertically into the air, from where you will almost instantly be able to marvel at Table Mountain in all its glory. We will set course for Cape Town’s largest wine-growing area heading towards Paarl. You will experience truly majestic mountain ranges en route towards the Karoo and will notice rapidly changing landscapes, eventually turning into a semi-desert, offering countless miracles of nature. On our way to the Game Reserve you will be able to marvel at breathtakingly beautiful landscapes.
Should you have opted for a day trip safari, you will meet and be introduced to your game ranger and take your seat in a 4x4 which will take you into Africa’s animal kingdom. It is our utmost goal that you get to see South Africa’s Big 5. Seeing that the leopard is a nocturnal predator, it is not always possible to spot one of these spotted beauties. Should, however, a fellow member of the species try to challenge another leopard for his territory, we might be lucky enough to see one of them in daylight. Elephants, buffalos, lions, rhinos, hippos, giraffes and many more wild animals will definitely be on our list and allow for unforgettable memories. After 2.5 hours we will arrive back at the Game Lodge where you will be offered lunch and refreshments.
We will meet you back at the helicopter at the previously arranged time and start our return flight back to Cape Town.
