Tropic Air operate flying safaris across Africa, with a focus primarily on Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Namibia and the Congo. Nowhere is off radar though and the team at Tropic Air are all about exploring new locations.

These flying safaris can be tailormade around your specific requirements. Longer itineraries usually begin and end at a major hub such as Addis Adaba, Nairobi or Windhoek. However, it is equally easy to be scooped up from a remote corner of the African wilderness.
