Cybele Forest Lodge and Health Spa was South Africa’s first ever prestigious Relais & Chateaux property, under the watchful eye of hotelier Rupert Jeffries, now the Executive Chairman of Dragonfly Africa. It occurred to Rupert that exploring the region’s scenic beauty from the air might be of interest to hotel guests. So Dragonfly Africa gradually emerged from this foundation of helicopter adventure tours and South African combination travel packages to become Southern and East Africa’s leading travel company.
