Bushpilot Adventures organises and facilitates self-fly safaris
through Southern Africa. What better way to see the wonders of this
land than from the pilot's seat of your own aircraft. Whether you're
a PPL wanting to experience something beyond flying circuits at your
local airfield, a seasoned ATP looking to recapture that passion for
flying, or a traveller wanting to experience Africa from a bird's
perspective, alone or as part of a group, the flying in this part of
the world offers a truly rewarding and unforgettable experience.
All the most pristine and unspoiled places are
without doubt off the beaten track, often only accessible by air. If it's a
and wild experience you're after, the adventures are only waiting. But you will
not find these in any guidebook or airport listing. For a pilot, as for
anyone else, these adventures come at a price; usually in the form of
accessibility problems and the lack of those creature comforts we’ve
gotten so used to (air traffic control, windsocks, tarmac, avgas, aircraft
mechanics etc.), not to mention unpredictable weather and far
distances from help. Bush flying has entered
the world of aviation and popular culture as a rugged, romantic
lifestyle that combines elements of great beauty and independence
with a certain degree of risk and danger.
OUR OFFERINGS - GUIDED OR SELF-GUIDED TOURS...
Guided Tours - For the social pilot who wants to enjoy a luxury
flying in the bush.
Self-guided Tours - For the more adventurous and experienced pilot,
wanting to set off on his/her own.
Whether setting out on your own or as part of an
organised group, a trip through Africa by air is sure to be an adventure
packed, rich and rewarding experience. Our diversity of wildlife, tribes
and cultures, stunning natural beauty and sub-tropical climate have made
it a favourite destination amongst many visitors, yet the mobility of
flying presents the opportunity to break away from the hustle and bustle
of the normal tourist trail; the freedom of the air allows us to visit
those exclusive areas which are otherwise hard or nearly impossible to reach, places in which the real Africa still emanates in
every sight and sound.
