About African Flying Adventures
African Flying Adventures is a Dutch Tour Operator specializing in Self-fly Safaris and Fly-along Safaris (where you fly along as a passenger). Besides our group tours, we also design customized trips for private parties. You can join one of our Self-fly Safari Adventures as a pilot or as a passenger with no piloting skills. Not all our tours and activities are done by air transportation: photography tours, as well as walking safaris, are both activities we offer. We are passionate about Africa and believe that visiting Africa is often a life-changing experience.
For pilots with an EASA or FAA pilot license, we provide the support to convert your license into a South African validated PPL license. We also assist you in finding and renting an aircraft in South Africa.
If you are not a pilot and would like to experience the vast African continent by air, you can join one of our Self-fly Safari Adventures as a passenger. Fly-along in the hired aircraft of a friendly participating pilot. Or make use of the seats available in the aircraft of a commercial pilot who flies along on many of our group tours. A Fly-along Safari takes you places you can’t easily go by road.
Every single one of our Self-fly Safari Adventures starts in either Johannesburg or Cape Town. Our travels take us through countries such as South Africa, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, and Mozambique.
On some of our tours, we have added a wildlife photography element where we bring a professional photographer with us to assist you with your photography aspirations.
This small but passionate and specialized team stands ready to assist you with your travel plans.
Our bush pilot, Sjoerd Jan, has flown over 1500 hours, many of which have been in Africa. Through his experience, we can offer pilots all the support needed.
Martin is a professional photographer with a love for the bush. Martin joins most of our group tours to support you in getting the best shots. Draw on his extensive knowledge and know-how during your holiday to capture the beauty of Africa.
Our bookings manager Welmien lives in Cape Town and has an eye for perfection. She is our liaison on the ground, supporting us on our travels throughout Southern Africa by bringing her organizational skills and experience of the African way of working to the table.
