Helicopter ride in the Okavango delta

Jump to last reply

Can anyone suggest a company/specific pilot for a helicopter ride in the delta next month. We will be at Kwara and Duba Plains and want to do a one hour, doors off ride - primary interest is photography and possible aerial game viewing. If anyone has done this please comment on the experience, optimum time of day to be able to see otherwise inaccessible areas of the delta and game viewing. Is flying over concessions where one is not staying generally allowed? We would like to take the helicopter from either camp- my thought was the most convenient time would be one in which we are in-between game drives, meaning late morning early afternoon, but I'm not sure if this is the best time to do a flight.

Which camp would be better for the helicopter experience - at Duba if the buffaloes are in paradise island or other inaccessible places, the only way to see them would be by chopper.

thanks
