For the purpose of understanding our terminology on this website we define the following as;
“Air Trips” includes Safaris and Expeditions

“Safari” Your Helicopter Safari will focus on Big Game-Viewing, for example, if you are witnessing the mass migration in Kenya and/or Tanzania you will not have to be a part of the large crowds that are viewing from the ground as we will be viewing from the air. Accommodations will be mostly up-market lodges and tented camps depending on your geographic location, on occasion the accommodation may be of upper medium quality.
“Expedition” Depending upon your location, your Expedition may include Big Game-Viewing, similar to the Safari, although our Expeditions can also take place in less developed areas such as Sahara Desert Countries. In addition to your location being a factor, the main difference between the Expedition and the Safari is the accommodation situation. The Helicopter Expedition is designed to get you far away from crowded areas and in doing so often there are no lodges or camps, so what we do is land the Helicopter and sleep where we land. If the area is accessible by vehicle, our ground staff will be there with the camp all set-up. If there is no vehicle access we will use light sleeping equipment and sleep around or under the Helicopter.
