Flying taxis

18-seater small plane – flying taxis.

What would we do without our flying taxi planes.

  • They have made planning Safaris to less visited areas simpler.
  • They save a lot of transfer time.
  • They are pretty cost efficient and with more carriers, prices are getting competitive.
  • They offer great aerial views.

Places like Northern Serengeti which about 6 + years ago was only accessible via driving. You needed to commit time in Serengeti to enjoy this beautiful area. Some clients still do of course enjoy drive and exploring different regions slowly.

Flying from Serengeti to remote parks in Southern Tanzania is now possible. Daily flights to Katavi National Park have been scheduled from Serengeti by Coastal Air. You can now easily make Southern Tanzania an extension to your Northern Tanzania Safari. Heading to Lake Tanganyika and beautiful Greystoke Mahale after your Safari – zip away.

I will be flying from Arusha Airport to beautiful Northern Serengeti in 2 hours. Driving would have been a 2 day affair. After my walk in Serengeti for 2 days, I will be flying from Central Serengeti to Arusha in the evening in time for dinner with my family.

Thanks little zippers.  Even if you have a 33 lbs weight limit, you make getting from A to B convenient.
