Why book an African Safari (Especially Now)? Read More


Off-the-beaten-track destinations

Many of our safaris have one or two local flights as some lodges can only be reached by light aircraft. It also means avoiding long and usually difficult overland journeys. You’ll have more time to spend on safari and in most cases you leave one camp after breakfast and arrive at the next for lunch. You have the advantage too of seeing Africa’s magnificent scenery from the air: flights into the Okavango Delta, across the Namib Desert and over the Serengeti leave lifelong memories. Keep your camera handy!

Our range of fly-in safaris features itineraries that travel between destinations by shared charter or scheduled domestic flight. They are especially useful for travellers on limited time and those who require a higher degree of comfort. An African fly-in safari also gives you the advantage of visiting off-the-beaten-track destinations – perfect for honeymooners and discerning travellers.

Advantages of African Fly In Safaris

Botswana: Access off-the-beaten-track destinations

If you want to visit the Okavango Delta and be assured of water-based safaris all year round, you’ll need to fly in via light aircraft and land on an island airstrip. The ‘deep delta’ is home to a handful of camps where the only way in is by air but the rewards are great. The flight is spectacular, the camps have pristine settings and some offer the best game viewing in the delta.

Most of Botswana’s other wildlife destinations are best reached by plane: the remote Kalahari reserves; the wild Savuti region of the Chobe National Park; and the Linyanti Wetlands, home to amazingly diverse game viewing and bird watching.

Namibia: Save time, amazing views & remote lodges

Namibia is a popular self-drive destination but count on an average of 5 hours driving between destinations. It makes for a long and tiring day; travellers with less time on their hands will do well to fly between lodges. You’ll enjoy epic scenery, especially in the Namib Desert region, and can pack Namibia’s best destinations into a week-long safari.

Travellers planning to visit Namibia’s most remote regions will have to fly in: lodges in Kaokoland and on the Skeleton Coast have been designed around fly-in safaris, greatly increasing your time relaxing and exploring at the accommodation rather than being on the road.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!
