Helicopter adventures over the spectacular and scenic Mpumalanga Lowveld, are undoubtedly the only way to embrace the beauty and capture the splendor of the area. The Mpumalanga Helicopter Company is based in the beautiful Mpumalanga Lowveld. The office is in Hazyview and most flights take place from the surrounding Lodges and Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. CASCADES – Departing from Hippo Hollow in Hazyview, we follow the Sabi River Valley along the edge of the cool Escarpment. We’ll fly over the 30-metre-high Pinnacle, a weathered column of free-standing sandstone rising above the tangle of indigenous forest, lingering above the breathtaking Lisbon falls, which tumble in four cascades down a 92-metre-high cliff. Witness the Berlin falls and see how water is forced through a narrow gap before tumbling in a single feathery cascade. See the 64-metre high Mac Mac Falls, which was split into two splendid streams before plunging into the forested gorge below by miners who placed dynamite on the crest of the Mac-Mac Falls during the gold rush Era. God’s Window will be our next experience; here you will be treated to one of the finest views of the beautiful Mpumalanga Lowveld before landing back at Hippo Hollow. Duration - 45 minutes CASCADES & CANYON DELIGHT – Departing from Hippo Hollow in Hazyview, we follow the Sabi River Valley along the edge of the cool Escarpment. This is an exhilarating flight that swoops over deep and mysterious gorges, through lush valleys bursting with vegetation and colour. We will linger above roaring rivers and cascading waterfalls, allowing for spectacular photographic opportunities. The flight will continue along the escarpment to God’s Window, which offers awesome panoramic views of the bushveld below and on to the fascinating and dramatic rock formations of the 1 000-metre-deep, 30-kilometre-long Blyde River Canyon, (the third deepest and greenest Canyon in the World). Duration - 1 hour CASCADES & CANYON SPECTACULAR – We collect passengers from any of the lodges in the Hazyview area (provided the lodge has a heli pad), the Sabi Sand and Timbavati area. From the Sabi Sand / Timbavati area, there are two scheduled flights per day, so as not to interfere with game drive times. This is an exhilarating flight that swoops over deep and mysterious gorges, through lush valleys bursting with vegetation and colour.
