The Sling Africa Tour is once again upon us and this year will see us Slinging our way over wild southern Africa and back! Southern Africa is one of the most picturesque regions in the world. From the majestic Victoria Falls to its dramatic landscapes, diverse African cultures and abundant wildlife, the natural and cultural heritage of this region is a gift to us all. It’s a magnificent region to explore, unwind in and fly over!
This year, the Sling Africa Tour will be routing through Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique. It’s going to be a fantastic tour and once again we’re looking forward to enjoying it with you. Like we did in 2019, we’ll be following in the footsteps of Essie Esterhuysen’s tour and enjoying the organisational benefits associated with that. We aim to have 10 Sling Aircraft and 20 Slingers join us on this adventure. Mike Blyth will be leading the tour in our latest development, the Sling High Wing.
Accommodation will cost from R27,000 per person - 1,750 USD – (depending on your choice of accommodation) for the entire trip which includes breakfast and dinner and sometimes lunch at each location. Please contact us for full details. If you would like to experience the Sling lifestyle for yourself, book today and pay your deposit of R10,000 (670 USD) per person ASAP in order to avoid disappointment!
