Aerial Africa is the inspiration of two award winning aerial, travel and wildlife photographers, husband and wife team Jan and Jay Roode.

Born in South Africa, they have an intimate knowledge of the Southern African region and have taken guests across the African continent to expertly photograph wildlife and wilderness from the sky and on the ground.


Having flown hundreds of thousands of nautical miles in all manner of aircraft and spent more than a decade photographing some of the most remote and spectacular wilderness areas of Southern Africa, they founded Aerial-Africa, with the clear vision to share the magic of Africa from above through ultra luxurious private safaris.

Through their unique and specialized offerings, Aerial Africa has become the quintessential tour operator for those wishing to experience and photograph Africa in a private, luxurious and authentic way .
