12 Days/ 11 Nights Kenya Best of Kenya Flying Safari

12 Days/ 11 Nights Kenya Best of Kenya Flying Safari

12 Days/ 11 Nights Kenya Best of Kenya Flying Safari is a delightful journey for travelers with limited time away from home yet who desire an in-depth safari experience. Devoted exclusively to Kenya, in less than two weeks we touch upon nearly all of the region’s highlights, while enjoying exceptional wildlife throughout.


Four flights expedite travel between locations and make the most of our time in each reserve. We start in Nairobi at the Nairobi Serena Hotel with a Safari Briefing by our field team and meeting with a Masai Elder.


A city tour shows Nairobi to be a historic and fascinating city, visiting the home of author Karen Blixen who penned Out of Africa. Luncheon at the homestead of Kenya’s oldest tea plantation hosted by the original settler’s granddaughter is another highlight.


Giraffe Centre is next, including a private briefing by the resident warden about the mission to save the endangered Rothschild giraffe; the chance to hand feed them is a bonus!


Our adventures in the bush begin with Amboseli National Park. Romantically situated in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli is famous for its tremendous variety of big game. Having arrived at Amboseli fresh and relaxed after a flight over the scenic Athi Plains, we are ready for a morning game run.


Our delightful lodge is perfectly located in the very centre of the reserve. We awaken to the sights and sounds of big game country and, if we’re lucky, to a view of Kilimanjaro often unclouded in the early morning sky. In addition to elephant, antelope, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo and the rare black rhino, Amboseli is sought after by travelers in the know for its breathtaking scenery and easily approachable wildlife.


Just after daybreak, we venture into the crisp morning air in search of the great herds. Our game drives are sure to reveal great wonders. Awaiting us at our next stop is a sheltered oasis, clustered around a waterhole and set in the pristine calm of its own private reserve: Sweetwaters Tented Camp.


Abounding with wildlife, unfettered by the more rigorous strictures of national parks, Sweetwaters offers a charming blend of under-canvas ambience and casual luxury where we’ll enjoy two nights. One of only four private game reserves in Kenya, it excels in the provision of privileged seclusion and private game viewing.


The reserve is also home to a 24,000 acre rhino sanctuary and an extensive chimpanzee project under the direction of Jane Goodall, whose goal is to rehabilitate and home orphaned and abused chimps— a visit is a highlight.


The Mount Kenya Safari Club, our next sojourn, might well be one of the most gracious establishments in Kenya, with a colorful past besides! The grand main building gleams white against the green sweep of surrounding lawns, while the idyllic swimming pool reflects the forested evergreen foothills rising up to the clouds and peaks of Mount Kenya in the distance.


The best is yet to come still, on safari in the Masai Mara. An un spoilt wilderness of haunting beauty, it promises a
profusion of wildlife, prolific bird life and the unprecedented opportunity of catching up with all the members of the “Big Five” in one morning.


Part of the vast Serengeti plains, this is the legendary Africa of our dreams where spectacular events take place. A Bush Walk will bring us closer to the creatures of the wild, but our favorite event might be the spectacular sundowner cocktail party around a bonfire, with a view to the vast surrounding savannah. While in the Mara, we also visit a traditional village and meet the proud Masai people.
