Khwai Leadwood Bush Camp, Scenic Helicopter Flight – Botswana
One of the activities offered by African Bush Camp at some of the camps is a scenic helicopter flight. Before this trip to Africa, we had never been in a helicopter before. It felt a bit strange to be doing a “safari” from the sky but everyone we spoke to said it was an incredible experience so of course we were game to try it.
After lunch one day while at Khwai Leadwood, we had our opportunity and we met our helicopter pilot Tom for New Zealand. When we walked out to the helicopter we noticed something odd … it had no doors on it! While for us that had never flew in a helicopter before, it felt extremely unsafe but apparently it is done all the time. We were strapped in and ready for our 30 minute scenic tour of the delta. What an epic way to see the delta! If you go on safari, try and have the opportunity to see it from the sky – it really was amazing. Enjoy!
