A great flight, smooth, with a personable pilot. Really enjoyed seeing the landscape from above--though I wish we could have flown lower. :)

My wife and I took turns flying over the reserve - beautiful views of a wonderful part of South Africa - the approximately 20 minute fly time was not enough for me.

Glad you enjoyed the flight. Maybe when you come down again you must come and do a longer flight to Graskop for breakfast or the canyon perhaps. More

great trip and experience to fly over the bush near Hoedspruit, for a fraction of the cost to fly a helicopter. Just you and the pilot flying like an eagle, observing hypo, buffalo and rhino. Great fun

It was my first fly with such a small plane. But the experience was nice, because I set my mind to enjoy, despite my fear of heights..

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!
