Flying with Wilderness Air
Wilderness Air is proud to be the air support of Wilderness Safaris, a responsible ecotourism and conservation company with private access to nearly all of southern Africa’s finest wildlife areas.
Maintaining its safety record throughout, Wilderness Air began operating in 1991, with one aircraft based in Botswana servicing two camps in the Okavango Delta. Today Wilderness Air is also based in Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe, operating over 45 aircraft and employing over 50 pilots from all around the globe.
We operate a varied fleet of light aircraft, chosen for their ability to transport visitors to remote wilderness destinations with short, dirt-surfaced airstrips.
All these aircraft types differ in their characteristics and are uniquely suited to different types of journey, varying group sizes and clients with different personal needs. The majority of our fleet operate on a daily circuit within the regions.
With this in notion, Wilderness Air is privileged to fly into some of the most pristine wilderness destinations in the world. We believe flying is an integral part of guest’s travel experience and therefore our pilots need to have a fundamental enthusiasm for being in such areas as well as a passion for offering guests a unique and life-changing experience.
