About African Bushflying Safaris
AFRICAN BUSHFLYING SAFARIS is the only company offering genuine guided Bush-Flying adventures in Southern Africa.
Our Safaris are aimed primarily at Pilots and their companions, who are wanting to experience true African Bushflying, piloting their "own" aircraft around Southern Africa, under the guidance of an experienced instructor.
Staying at carefully chosen guesthouses and stunning game lodges and camps, we explore off the beaten track using Bush Planes specially built for our Safari operation. We always look to fly in areas where few others go, exploring rivers, canyons and wilderness areas, landing on unprepared surfaces, small back-country airfields, beaches, fields and other off-airfield places.
The emphasis is on the flying experience, with safaris carefully chosen to follow the most scenic routes as far as possible. South Africa has some of the most incredible variety in scenery and landscapes, with endless beaches, rivers and mountains, and we have spent years exploring and finding the most amazing places to fly.
Hidden waterfalls, winding canyons and uninhabited beaches are what we are all about.
