EXPERIENCE NATURE

from a different perspective.
We offer various services, such as transfers to the surrounding lodges, scenic flights into the heart of the Blyde River Canyon as well as special occasion flights.
We have been operating in the area since May 2017 and have the privilege of working with the best in the business. Wild Skies Aviation moved to Hoedspruit in 2016 to assist in the fight against poaching and assisting with game work on the many farms in the Hoedspruit area and whilst the fleet is not out saving wildlife, they are taking you on the ride of your lives.
Rates are based on a charter basis and not on a per seat basis.
