East Africa SkySafari

East Africa SkySafari

This combined trip to Kenya and Tanzania encompasses the very best of this intoxicating pair, from the heat-hazed, star-streaked Kenyan savannah, teeming with wildlife, to the highlands of Northern Tanzania, home to the continent’s highest mountain, the planet’s largest intact caldera, vast golden plains, truly enormous skies. 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. Then fly right into the wildest shows on earth: for front-row seats for all the animal action in both the magnificent Masai Mara and the boundless Serengeti. Finish in the great, gaping crater of Ngorongoro, a UNESCO-listed basin brim-full of wildlife. With only 8 passengers per journey, this epic sky safari offers a combination of executive plane, direct flights, top-class guides and luxurious camps and lodges in the most magnificent of locations.
