Just like Neil’s Machu Picchu piece some folks might debate doing the whole African safari thing by helicopter, but I’m totally a fan of helicopter sightseeing. For one, my last trip to Hawai’i had me foaming at the mouth to shoot more aerial photography of the places we so often see from one perspective. Now am I suggesting going out to see the Big 5 by helicopter only – of course not. This type of deal found at Distinctive Africa is for luxury travel folk who want the comforts of a tailored-made helicopter and I can promise you I don’t fall into that category of travelers, but if I had the dinero I’d do it by jeep and air.
Distinctive Africa operates out of southern Africa in Botswana, Namibia, South African and southern Mozambique. Worth a look if you’re planning your next safari in the continent.
