Whether you’re just in it for the view, or enjoy getting stuck, there’s no doubt about it: South Africans from all walks of life have a passion for the great outdoors one way or another.
From mountains to forests, farms, oceans and cities, the amount of crazy ridiculous landscapes we have on offer has enough gees to get anyone involved.
But, with summer coming up, it’s probably time you invested in the ideal companion for your travels.
With the ability to capture the scenery and experience of whatever adventure you choose to embark on, whether it’s through the savanna or up the West Coast, anyone of the DJI drones is the answer.
Local leaders in the drone-selling category, weFix, wanted to showcase just what it is the DJI Mavic Pro can do, so they enlisted actor Nico Panagio as well as SA’s award-winning drone videographer Luke Maximo Bell to show it off:
Bell is no stranger to the drone photography scene and is well-known locally for his photographic talent. A local Capetonian, he has taken the drone photography world by storm with this winning image that was taken as he is an avid adventurer, evident from his Instagram feed.

The trio hit the idyllic Noordhoek beach to show off the “most sophisticated flying camera ever created”:
At one-sixth the size of the DJI Phantom 4, there are no cutbacks. The Mavic Pro has a range of 7km and maintains the 4K Camera. It’s also the first drone that can be folded up to the size of a sub sandwich and can be easily stored in a backpack. An improved and simplified smartphone app means that drone flying is even more accessible, especially for new pilots.
