“Connecting you to the wilderness” is the value proposition of Wilderness Air.
In operation since 1991, and with an impeccable safety record, Wilderness Air offers scheduled transfers between Wilderness camps and the regional hubs and also a private charter service using a varied fleet of light aircraft. These aircraft are perfectly suited to operating in remote bush conditions and include the Cessna 206, the Cessna 210 and the Cessna 208B (Grand Caravan). As an alternative to scheduled commercial airliners, charters in larger and faster planes such as the Pilatus PC12, the Beech King Air B200 or the Citation Mustang are possible from Johannesburg to Maun and on some of the other longer routes. In the case of the Pilatus or the King Air, these aircraft and their crew can accompany you throughout your safari on a private charter basis.
The service offered by Wilderness Air is more than a simple connection however; rather the aerial transfers between camps allow a totally different impression and appreciation of the country below. From the densely matted papyrus flanked waterways of the Okavango Delta and their secretive sitatunga inhabitants, to the bizarre, unexplained fairy circles of the Namib Desert and the dambos and closed canopy miombo woodlands of Zambia, all yield a new perspective when viewed from above.
