A breathtaking 4-day Helicopter Adventure in Kenya visiting private conservancies and experiencing our favourite boutique and eco lodges in Kenya. A truly unique experience you will fly over Mount Kenya, the Laikipia plateau, the Great Rift Valley and the Ndoto Mountains for 360-degree views of the stunning landscapes.
Day 1: Arrive Nairobi / Solio Lodge (B/L/D)
From the moment you land at Nairobi International Airport, your private helicopter will be waiting for you and will take you on a short, scenic flight over the rolling Aberdares and land in front of Solio Lodge where our staff will be waiting for you.
The only lodge on this private conservancy, this exclusive hideaway is the best location to see black and white rhino in africa.
Fly up over the majestic 17,000 ft snow and glacier capped peak of Mount Kenya. Then descend to around 13,000 ft and land at one of a number of pristine high altitude lakes on the Mountain teeming with rainbow trout. Enjoy a spectacularly exclusive fly-fishing experience followed by a champagne breakfast before returning to the lodge late morning to relax for the remainder of the day.
Day 2: Laikipia Plateau / Great Rift Valley / Desert Rose (B/L/D)
Today, depart at first light heading North over the Western highlands of the Laikipia plateau before descending into the Great Rift Valley. Land on the edge of the vast Silali Crater for a light picnic breakfast before continuing North into the Suguta Valley. We arrive at Desert Rose Lodge in time for lunch.
This afternoon, take off and fly over the cedar forest crowning Mount Nyiru and land on the edge of the Nabuyatom Crater to take in one of Africa’s most extraordinary landscapes.
Continue South, back into the Suguta Valley and over the amazing Flamingo Lake, Lake Logipi. This alkaline lake regularly hosts upwards of a million Greater and Lesser Flamingoes and presents a remarkable vista when viewed from your helicopter’s open doors. Enjoy a memorable sundowner in the midst of Sahar-esque Sand Dunes before the short flight back to Desert Rose before nightfall.
Day 3: Ndoto Mountains / Sasaab (B/L/D)
Depart Desert Rose after breakfast and head south into the Ndoto Mountains. This mountain range, together with her sister Mathews Range further to the south, are sky islands surrounded by plains. Land for a mid-morning coffee and a short walk in this forest before continuing to our destination Sasaab, in time for lunch.
Much later in the afternoon, you have the option to take off for a short scenic flight to spot rare Grevy’s Zebra from the air and land on the sacred Samburu mountain, Ol Donyo Sabachi (Ol Lolokwe), which stands 1,000 metres above the surrounding plains and from which, on a clear evening, you could well get a magnificent view of Mount Kenya.
Return to Sasaab in time for sundowners and take a short walk to Sundowner Rock, for 360° views of the expansive Mathews Range, the perfect spot to end the day.
Day 4: Departure (B)
After breakfast and depending on the time of your international flight will determine what time your helicopter will depart from Sasaab straight to Nairobi International Airport.
Alternatively, you may wish to add a beach extension to the beautiful Mombasa coast or fly over to the spice island of Zanzibar – please ask us for a recommendation.
