Let SkySafari deliver you directly into the soul-stirring Kenyan wilderness, not a minute wasted. Touch down in sight of snow-capped Kilimanjaro to wonder at Amboseli’s huge elephant herds roaming in the mountain’s shadow. Take off for Loisaba, where cutting-edge conservation helps preserve landscapes as dramatic as they are biodiverse. Fly right to the matchless Masai Mara for arguably the finest game viewing in the world.
The carefully curated SkySafari Kenya itinerary delivers maximum variety and adventure in high style, with high efficiency. There’s no needless waiting or stops en route: you’ll be driven straight onto the strip to board their elegant private aircraft – which seat only eight passengers – to soar straight to your next exquisite home, deep in the wilderness. That means more time tracking big cats on foot, learning bird calls, searching for the Big Five, and chinking G&T glasses as the sun sinks below the horizon.
The winning combination of executive plane, direct flights, top-class guides, and luxurious camps and lodges in the most magnificent of locations is A-list decadence at an affordable price. It’s kind to the planet too: flights are operated on a carbon negative basis, with every trip contributing to Land & Life, a foundation committed to a sustainable future that sees local communities benefit from tourism, safeguarding nature for the next generation.

A sundowner in the bush later, you'll return to your luxurious camp for dinner and stories around the bonfire.
Wake up to a fantastic day of being out in the African wild! After breakfast, you'll set out for your safari of a lifetime in the iconic Masai Mara Reserve. An area of savannah and wilderness, this is where you can spot the African big five animals - lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and African buffalo. If you're visiting during the Great Migration season, you'll also find a million wildebeest making their way across the grasslands in search of sustenance and shelter to give birth. Spend a full day searching for the Mara's illustrious residents - from the trackers' favourite lions to naughty giraffes - taking a break to enjoy your packed picnic lunch served in the bush. You'll also be visiting some of the region's original human residents, the Maasai, at a local village. An exciting day later, you'll return to your camp for dinner under the stars.
