A $1000 non-refundable deposit is required for each student in the Safari.

A $700 non-refundable deposit is required for each guest

 

* Safari, defined as: a journey or expedition. 

New and exciting times!  Each safari is changing and taking on a life of it's own.

Lori MacNichol developed the Canyonlands Safari in the year 2006.  She has found that each seminar has taken a path of it's own. As the general aviation community surrounding the  4 corners area (Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah) began inquiring and attending the aviation safety seminars, we have found that each seminar has changed in schedule of events and the area is abundant with backcountry airstrips!  Please call to inquire for more information on your seminar.
