The very best of southern Kenya’s most fabled game viewing destinations by air

A quintessential wildlife safari, combining some of the very best of southern Kenya’s most fabled game viewing destinations by air. Travel across breath taking savannah plains, see wildlife in its natural habitat and meet briefly, rich tribal cultures. Soar silently, high above a million strong trailing wildebeest in a hot-air balloon as the dawn awakens and watch mingling herds of Elephant on the Mara plains below. Take time and relax with a soothing wellness treatment and watch the wilderness of Tsavo happen before you.

Enjoy luxury eco-safari camps and wildlife encounters up close, explore true African wilderness on foot, beneath the snows of Kilimanjaro, in the company of Masai warriors and journey between destinations, low level, in a privately configured executive Cessna Caravan, the perfect bush aircraft.

A truly harmonious blend of nostalgia and contemporary luxury on a uniquely magical Out Of Africa safari flying experience. Our Executive Cessna 208B Grand Caravan is a new generation, state of the art glass cockpit aircraft.

Equipped with digital weather radar, a Garmin 3D navigation system and air conditioning, with 8 very comfortable and luxurious First Class soft leather reclining seats, all with the ability to move 360 degrees to ensure you travel in style and with plenty of leg room. Each seat has a personal headset and during the flight, your pilot guide will give you information about the wildlife and the scenic highlights as they pass below.
