Admittedly the microlight does not inspire a lot of confidence. But screw up your courage to the sticking place and do the ride. Needless to say the sightings from on high are breathtaking. But, for me, even more exhilarating was the breeze in the face, the heart in the mouth wobbles of the microlight and the feeling of being but... More

Although I was a bit scarried by the idea of flying with that machine , adrenaline hunger was much powerful so I enjoyed at max the flight ! It was really nice to fly over the sugar cane fields and afterward along the coast ! everything was so small but in the same time appeared as being close . Enjoyable... More

I opted for the 30min flight which went as far as Zimbali. The views are just breathtaking & the ride was very comfortable. The pilot was super chilled, even pointed out a school of dolphins swimming below.

My son and I did this while staying in Ballito before heading up the coast. It was fantastic. No worries. Dave and the other pilots make you feel very comfortable and safe. What a great experience. My other son and wife were not feeling well that day and did not participate so on our way back down the coast we... More

There are fewer things more magical than seeing somewhere beautiful from a new perspective and micro-lighting across the cerulean blue skies of Kwa Zulu Natal is definitely an experience not to be missed! Soaring high above the lush sugar cane fields below, you can circle the coast and further inland for 10, 20 or 30 minutes depending on your budget... More

End of January 2016 we repeated our excellent microlight flight experience we had many years ago here, exactly same spot, from same airstrip. A must do! Go for the 30 minutes, but book ahead of time via email. Flew along the Ballito coastline, saw dolphins playing, spotted a large shark down there, fantastic aerial view of the coastline with the...

We had such a great time at the microlight school. After seeing them flying above the beach while on holiday we decided to look into it, and booked a flight for the following day. What fun! We chose a 20 minute flight at R600pp, and saw stunning views of the dolphin coastline as well as the sugarcane fields inland. Definitely... More

This experience should be on everyone's bucket list. I loved every minute in the air. The pilots were so friendly and you can see that they love what they do. I was lucky enough to even spot a school of dolphins!

Exilerating and exciting...what a great team there! Thanks to all of them for making this an awesome experience! When hubby said wrap up warm on that beautiful Ballito morning I wondered what was going on and I must admit I had an OMG moment when we got there but it was a fantastic experience and we both highly recommend it.

Fantastic professional service and experienced pilots. We enjoyed a birthday celebration flight over the sea and loved every moment. As someone who is not keen on heights i can personally vouch for the complete safety that one feels during the flight. The microlight itself is in a very good condition and the pilots were all informative and friendly. The 20... More
