Luxury Helicopter safari in Kenya

Helicopters and conservation


See areas of Kenya normally visited by only the most intrepid travelers who have months to explore, instead of days. With your own helicopter piloted by a superb naturalist guide, every day is filled with wonder and excitement. On the ground explore by vehicle, horseback, or on foot.

Fly around the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Visit the elephant orphans who have been released into the wild at Voi. See hippo from a glass underwater viewing area at Mzima Springs. See the amazing salt pans of Lake Magadi before settling into the Maasai Mara for some serious game viewing and a visit with researchers from Mara Research project. Add in fishing in Lake Victoria, a hot air balloon, flights over Mt Kenya and the Mathews ranges and a chance to look for the black panther at Lewa and the community-based elephant and rhino conservation at Retiti.

This program has everything you could dream of doing in Kenya!
