Microlights provide the simplest and most cost effective form of aerial safari. Microlights can fly lower and slower than regular fixed wing aircraft, providing better opportunities for viewing and photographing wildlife. This is further enhanced by the open nature of the microlight's "cockpit" - not even helicopters can provide the degree of unobstructed view that a microlight offers. As a platform for photography, microlights are not as stable as helicopters, and they lack the panache of hot air balloons. But microlights offer a fun, exciting, and affordable aerial perspective on Africa's wildlife and wilderness. Because of the specialized nature of microlight safaris, very few safari camps offer this activity.
