Kenya Flying Safaris

An Aircraft in the kenya plains  - Kenya

A Kenya flying safari, commonly known as air safaris in Kenya are a fantastic alternative if you’ have a short travel time or want to tour Kenya in the easiest way, using light aircrafts to make travel easy. There's a network of airstrips across in Kenya so most national parks and lodge accommodation can be reached. Spend two or three nights in each location - a superb way to take in the region's wildlife, in style. A flying safari in Kenya will often center on one or two areas, flying by light aircraft between holiday destinations to make the most of your time. After an early start each day, spend a few hours on a safari game drive in the local area viewing the wildlife. Return to your safari lodge for some well earned relaxation, followed by a second game drive later in the day.

Flying Safaris in Kenya Uganda Tanzania involves flying by light aircraft to various safari lodges, exploring different regions of a country or countries. This is truly one of the best ways to go on a Africa safari. Your safari literally begins when you take off, as your light aircraft will usually fly at a low altitude enabling you to gaze over the vast plains of East African Wilderness with the possibility of sighting an array of wild animals. A typical Flying Safari in Kenya involves spending a night or two in each camp, lodge, hotel or beach resort before flying to the next vacation destination. As different regions in East Africa tend to be diverse, this type of safaris allows the traveller to have a more complete experience of the country’s wildlife areas. plane photo in Maasai Mara

Kenya private Air Charters 
There are schedule flying services to most of the destinations in Kenya, and we can arrange these, however there are many other safari destinations that are only accessible by private charter. Often with a large group of people coming to Kenya on Safari, it may be cheaper and logistically easier to charter a private aircraft. It is certainly very much more fun.
From the air you can see all the Lakes of the rift valley, from Lake Turkana in the North to the flamingoes, the mountains, the hills and the grasslands teeming with game, quite simply the grandness of nature. Guided Flying Safaris provide a unique and personal experience. Our clients can fly at a moments notice or linger longer if a few more hours are needed not to rush breakfast. A luxury that means one is not restricted by scheduled times of arrivals and departures. With bush strips dotted all over the country, flying is very much a part of life in Kenya. The sense of freedom that it gives is unparalleled.
This is not to say that that our safaris are restricted to flying only. Indeed some people with more time to travel prefer to see the country by road and we can also arrange this using 4x4 Safari vehicles.
