Have you been on an Okavango Delta scenic flight? Travelers have become accustomed to all types of safaris in Botswana. From Mokoro safaris in the Delta to quad-bike safaris on the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan, but few can say that they have experienced a sky safari.
Ker & Downey® Africa thrives on bringing you authentic, unforgettable experiences, which is why we want you to experience every corner of Africa, from all angles. An Okavango Delta scenic flight is a bucket list experience. It gives you the opportunity to take in the vastness and beauty of the Okavango Delta from a bird’s eye view. With a clear view from the sky, this scenic flight is a photographer’s dream come true and also the most time efficient way to explore Botswana. For the best scenic experience, flights are taken in the morning and late afternoon when the weather conditions are calm and the wildlife is abundant on the plains of the Delta. Be sure to look out for hippos in the waterways or herds of elephant meandering through the delta. If you are lucky you will also be able to spot buffalo in the shade of the trees.
A scenic flight is the perfect complement to any Botswana safari itinerary and your travel designer can pre-book this for you. We invite you to discover the Okavango Delta with many different unique options from a champagne picnic flight, Palm Island Champagne Stop, Elephant Havens, Tsodilo Hills Experience or even a full day private safari. For professional or keen wildlife photographers this offers you a perspective from above for extended wildlife viewing to enable you to get the perfect aerial photograph with unrestricted views. All passengers are guaranteed a window seat in their private flight. Most scenic flights are from 30 minutes to 1 hour and start at $290 per person. This is a bucket list experience you do not want to miss.
For the adventurous traveler, we also offer an extended Okavango Delta Scenic flight. This will take you across the Mopane Veld to the Islands of the Okavango Delta. Here you will have the opportunity to spend a day on Pom Pom Island and enjoy tranquil Mokoro trips on the crystal clear waters. Followed by a delicious lunch before you make your way back to Kasane.
