Africa is such a huge continent that lends itself well to charter flights, thus avoiding the rough roads, little villages, meandering wildlife and stock and traffic. It is also a special way to see the spectacular countryside, like the Sossusvlei sand dunes in Namibia
It’s always nice to have a welcoming committee when you arrive at your destination on a charter fight. It makes you feel special when there is someone there to help you with your bags – maybe this pride of lions was not quite who you expected to greet you though! Charter flights have strict luggage restrictions that you are best to check prior to your arrival. Most allow only soft sided luggage with a maximum weight of 15 – 20 kg including hand luggage and camera. No wheels, frames or ridged structures can be accommodated. Check with your booking agent for details.
An aerial view over the Skeleton Coast is absolutely spectacular. Numerous charter flights are available and varied depending on budget, duration and season. Departing from the Atlantic coastal town of Swakopmund your scenic flight can head north of the shifting sand dunes, shipwrecks and cape fur seals or south to the Fish River Canyon. The Namibian coast is spectacular and a charter flight certainly enhances your holiday with a different perspective of this arid and near uninhabited territory.
Incredible game viewing can be found at both the water camps and land camps throughout the Okavango Delta. The unique annual flooding create vast wetlands and home to a variety of African wildlife. It is however fairly tricky to get to some of the incredible choices of accommodation, in fact your only option may be by charter air. Maun International Airport is Botswana’s busiest airport and right on the edge of Okavango Delta making it super convenient for all air safaris and charter flights to depart from. Kasane (Chobe), Victoria Falls and Livingston are the other popular airports that serve this wonderful region.
Some of the beautiful scenery that Africa has to offer can only be truly appreciated from the air. Africa is huge and air charter transport is the quickest and often the most cost effective way to get around.
