What a great way to see the area. Kyle our pilot was very skilled and extremely enthusiastic. He was able to give a lot of details of the area and about the flight itself. We highly recommend this flight school

Discovered this through the website of Giraffe Lodge and did not regret it! An hour microlight flight over Drakensberg mountains and Blyde River Canyon was just stunning. Cannot recommend enough.
