Since most Delta concessions require you to fly-in by light aircraft, there is little doubt that you will get the chance to view this remarkable tableau of waterways, tree islands and expansive floodplains from the sky, with sensational panoramic vistas that you are unlikely to forget. For real airborne enthusiasts there is the chance to book a helicopter flight, which might last for longer than an inter-reserve transfer and will provide more scope for focusing on specific landscapes and wildlife. Your pilot can also swoop and soar to various altitudes throughout the flight, which is not possible in the same way on a light aircraft transfer that is merely intended to take passengers from A to B. The larger wildlife such as elephants, giraffe and hippo are certainly identifiable from the skies, even when travelling solo, while the large herds of buffalo, zebra and antelope take on a new grandeur from on high. Guests booking this experience will usually get around 45 minutes in the air, with &Beyond’s Xudum and Xaranna camps among those that can offer this activity for guests.
