There is nothing more relaxing than sipping on a glass of bubbly while watching the sun set on a beautiful day in Africa. But often that tranquil getaway is not just a quick trip down the road, and your travel time might be extremely limited. This does not mean you have to postpone your break for another year.
National Airways Corporation (NAC) has the ideal solution by taking care of your aircraft travel logistics. Their fixed wing and helicopter charters mean the journey to your destination doesn’t have to involve long hours on the road being stuck in traffic jams.
“Sub-Saharan Africa boasts some of the world’s most breath-taking landscapes, from pristine beaches and rolling valleys to rocky mountains and lush game reserves. Customised itineraries and tours for our guests have become very popular,” says Jolande Parrott, manager Fixed Wing Charter Sales & FBO at NAC.
