At the base of the striking Klein Drakensberg is Hoedspruit, home to this exciting 1 hour microlight flight experience. This one-hour microlight flight travels over Big Five game reserves and gives you a view of the magnificent Limpopo landscape in an area favoured for its superb weather all year round.
So board the microlight flight and enjoy the jam-packed hour trip. The braver microlight flight travelers can even get some hands-on experience. With a bird’s-eye view of the plains and wild animals that inhabit it, this microlight flight is an unrivaled wildlife experience. It normally includes flying over the Big Five game farms in the area towards the Olifants River and following the Olifants River for a short while before returning for further game viewing over Big 5 game reserves in the area. Good chances of seeing 3 of the Big 5 but the illusive leopard and lion are difficult to find. Game to see could include buffalo, lion (occasionally), elephant, rhino, hippo and plains game such as wildebeest, giraffe, warthogs, zebra and impala.
You have the option to sit and experience the flight and view the game or you can have hands on experience from the first flight should you so wish. The choice is yours.
