Why a private aircraft ?

To travel from one country to the other in Southern Africa, especially when you are travelling with family, and have to change commercial airlines to small air taxis, usually generates all king of frustrations such as delays, late departures – when departure is not simply cancelled; forcing you to overnight at an unwanted place while you could be staying at the lodge you have dreamed of and paid for.

At Cape to Cairo, your pilot and the crew manage technical stops very professionally and look after flight plans refilling and customs formalities so that stop overs are done rapidly and smoothly, leaving enough time later on to loaf around a herd of giraffe which you caught sight of during the flight.

How do we calculate the cost of a flying safari?

The final price depends on a number of factors :
The number of participants, the type of aircraft and the required crew. If two people are using a 8 seated aircraft, price per person will be affected.

In any case, the size of the aircraft that you will be using is always bigger than the size it would normally require for X amount of passengers in order to preserve comfort and ease on board as well as to improve the flying performance of the aircraft and therefore, its security.
Cape to Cairo is the only company operating twin engines and pressurized twin turbo prop with crew members entirely dedicated to your sole use during your flying safari.

The itinerary and length of your safari :
From six days, which is a minimum – to 15 days for a combined holiday in The Cape and a safari in to Namibia, Okavango Delta , Caprivi, visit of the Victoria Falls at Livingstone and a beach resort on Lake Malawi or in Mozambique before returning to Cape Town or Johannesburg for your flight overseas.
