Champagne Experience

Remote Palm Island Experience

For an even more unforgettable experience, you can add a champagne experience onto any flight with Helicopter Horizons. We’ll land on a remote spot for a few minutes to enjoy some French champagne.

A scenic flight over this unique wetland offers an experience like no other. Rainwater travels from the Angolan highlands before spreading over Kalahari sands to form the world’s largest inland delta. This expansive wetland teems with wildlife dependent on access to permanent water sources offered by the Okavango. Expect to witness incredible panoramic vistas of this wetland along with an abundance of wildlife sightings including hippos, elephants, lechwe, buffalo, giraffe, impala and perhaps even some predators.

Halfway through your scenic the pilot will find a deserted palm island where you can enjoy a peaceful break. Once on the ground, champagne will be popped for you to enjoy alongside views from the ground and further information about the delta from your charismatic pilot. When you have quenched your thirst, you will have another opportunity to enjoy the aerial perspective on your way back to camp.

    Great views and pilot We booked a 30 minute tour from the lodge and were collected on time by a Robinson R44. It was a 'doors off' flight but my wife was a bit concerned with this so the pilot put the front passenger door on without any fuss.
    The delta is so dry right now that it was the only real way to see the wildlife that are normally near the lodges. Great overall experience.

    AWESOME This place came up on a search I did for flights over the Delta- thank goodness I chose the more expensive option than a plane flight . Like a previous reviewer I cannot express enough that this place has customer satisfaction written all over it. They treated us as human beings from the initial e-mail traffic to even being in their office on a Sunday afternoon when we arrived in Maun looking for directions and to ascertain timing etc before... read more

    45 minute flight over the Okavango Our flight was incredible. Seeing the delta from a different perspective is well worth the cost. We saw some types of antelopes that even our guides had never seen (Sitatunga). Definitely take the doors off for the flight so you have an unobstructed view! Our pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly. It could not have been a better experience!
