The Concept

Exhilaration, luxurious, excitement, opulence, awe-inspiring, magnificent, adventurous, fantastic…!

These are some of the words that best describe Distinctive Africa’s Luxury Helicopter Safaris. We present to you the ultimate safari experience in luxurious style and comfort with a flare of uniqueness that is a cut above the rest…

We operate helicopter safaris in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Moçambique.

The main feature of these helicopter safaris is the incredibly, exhilarating way of experiencing Africa. Sightseeing by air is the best way to discover Africa’s diverse sights and sounds. This is truly the most amazing way to see, feel and visit Africa.

From the moment you arrive in Africa, you will be swept off your feet by the high level of service and exceptional standard of accommodation as well as the incredible beauty of this exotic continent. Every day is filled with discovery and wonder as you glide across the magnificent scenery, meeting different cultures and visiting the spectacular attractions. Spend your evenings in luxury and style at carefully chosen lodges and boutique hotels situated in pristine areas of this beautiful continent. Enjoy the culinary feasts produced by world-class chefs and the unique activities on offer throughout the region.

It is an exhilarating experience not to be missed. This is the best of the best!

Our pilots are the best in the industry with years of experience and a keen interest in Africa.

Our helicopter of choice is the EC 120. Click here for more detail on this incredible helicopter. We also use the Bell 407 and Bell Longranger.

Please note:
Distinctive Africa plans luxury safaris for our guests from start to finish. This is NOT a transfer by helicopter from one place to the next, but a complete luxury safari experience like no other! A non-stop visual feast awaits you every minute of your journey. Travelling by helicopter is a unique, exhilarating and awe-inspiring experience. You will see Africa in a unique way, possible only by helicopter.

The experience of a lifetime
Imagine flying 10 feet above the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean, spotting dolphins as they ride the waves, then gently landing on a secluded beach, where you enjoy a sumptuous breakfast laid out especially for you. Indulge in a swim or snorkel before setting off to explore the scenic beauty of nature from a bird’s eye perspective.

After enjoying a delicious lunch at a secret spot, a short walk brings you closer to the natural wonders of Africa. From here you fly over the grassy plains of Africa to a private game reserve where your private game drive vehicle and ranger awaits, ready to explore the African bush in search of the abundant wildlife including the Big Five.

Enjoy sundowners at an idyllic spot in the bush as the African sun turns the sky into a fiery display of colour while sipping away at your favourite drink. On the way back to your luxury lodge where an extravagant bush dinner awaits you, the ranger points out the unique nocturnal animals and birds.

Around the campfire you reflect on the days’ incredible experiences, with Africa’s ever-changing landscapes playing back in your minds’ eye as you linger on the memories of your African safari. Luckily tomorrow is another day with its’ own unique adventures, experiences and excitement!

You fall asleep with the sounds of the African bush, content with life, looking forward to the next part of your journey with Distinctive Africa…

Combine your helicopter safari with a classic mobile safari and luxury lodge safari to Botswana’s famous wildlife reserves or spend a week on a private yacht, exploring the tropical islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago. A luxury rail safari and a visit to a private game reserve before or after your helicopter safari compliments the experience.
