Many of our guests inquire about Hot Air Balloon flights, but there is something even MORE exciting on offer at Vuyani Safari Lodge. Microlight flights!
The beauty of the Microlight flight is that the pilot can take you where you would like to go. And they have a few options to choose from, most certainly a highly recommended activity to consider during your stay with us at Vuyani Safari Lodge. We had some guests enjoy a 1-hour flight today, and Jannie took some photos of them taking off on their adventure. I wanted to share the photos here.
You can select a package that suits you best:
30 Minute Flights – This flight is usually done over Big 5 areas surrounding Hoedspruit so the chances of spotting one of the famous Big 5 is rather promising, however this is entirely up to you! The pilot will discuss the flight before takeoff to ensure your best interests are at heart.
1 Hour Flights – There are two most popular options on this flight, but once again, the pilot will discuss the route before the flight Blyde River Canyon option, this flight usually includes a flight over the Blyde Dam and above the Blyde River Canyon then back to Hoedspruit where wildlife can be viewed. Alternatively, a view of Bourke’s Luck potholes before returning to Hoedspruit. The second option on the 1-hour flight is the Olifants River option, this flight usually includes flying over numerous Big 5 reserves in the area towards the Olifants River then follows the Olifants River for a short period of time, where after heading back to Hoedspruit for more possible Wildlife sightings.
The best part of this activity is that you can discuss your specifics with the Pilot before taking off from Hoedspruit Civil Airfield. Please feel free to speak to your host upon Check in at Vuyani Safari Lodge.
