My brother and I had a spectacular flight with Deon and Rowena- both so friendly and professional. We flew level with vultures and saw zebra, buck, giraffe and hippo. The lowveld and Drakensburg mountain range is beautiful from above. We had so much fun and highly recommend the experience!

Went up in an ultralight with Kyle. He was very professional, super friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. I took some amazing pictures, including game spotting from 100m up. I highly recommend LEFS for a scenic flight!

I took a flight for fly in safari. The flight was wonderful and awesome. During my flight, I have seen a herd of African buffalos and giraffes. It is a must do activity, when you visit this area.
