“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

My boyfriend arranged for us to go on the ultra-lights as a surprise 'birthday' present, which was secretly a proposal. Our pilots were amazing. They were super friendly and added that extra touch. We flew over the Blyde River Canyon and landed at a runway in Graskop, where they laid out a beautiful picnic, with a fantastic spread. They even arranged roses and champagne. We then flew back over Kapama Game reserve where we saw Giraffe and Wildebeest from the air. Fantastic and very different

“Don't missing doing this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We did a 30 minute Ultra-lite flight over Kruger Park. I wish we would have done the hour It was an amazing experience with wonderful pilots and breath taking views.You are high enough to see so much, but low enough to see the animals. We went early morning, but right before dusk might be even better.

Really glad you enjoyed your flight. It certainly does give you a different perspective of the bush when seeing the bush and animals from above.

Really glad you had a wonderful experience. It is just so amazing to see the lowveld from the air. The experience of viewing the animals from above gives you such a different perspective of what the bush actually looks like. Thanks for the review.
