Friendly pilot (sorry I forgot your name). He was very enthusiastic and made the flight lots of fun. Lovely to have a different view of the Garonga game reserve. Would recommend it.

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
