Africa Adventure Consultants, Specialists in Customizing Travel to Africa, Creates Trips for Private Pilots

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

An African safari, whether by foot, vehicle or horseback, is one of life’s most exhilarating trips. And now the Africa travel experts at Denver, Colorado-based Africa Adventure Consultants are making custom-tailored journeys to the continent even more thrilling, with the private pilot in mind. This year, AAC offers trips through Africa that incorporate microlights and single engine planes.

In “Microlighting in Zambia,” participants embark on 15-minute flights aboard Weight Shift MicrolightTrikes, during the early morning hours, from Tafika Camp in South Luangwa, Zambia. From the low altitude, travelers often spot buffalo and hippos. This option is available from May to mid-November, and is priced at $110 per person for 15 minutes. Longer flights with one-on-one instruction are also available.

And in “Self-Fly Safaris Southern Africa,” licensed pilots can independently fly older model single engine planes to the greatest wildlife areas of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Malawi. AAC prepares its high-flying guests with Cockpit Trip Kits, which are detailed accounts of each leg they will fly on the route. Toll free: 866-778-1089
