9 Days Flying Family Safari

9 Days/ 8 Nights Kenya Flying Family Safari Holiday

(9 Days/ 8 Nights Kenya Flying Family Safari Holiday starts in Nairobi at the Nairobi Serena Hotel then you proceed by air to Amboseli Serena, Samburu Simba Lodge and the grand finale is the Masai Mara with a stay at Mara Serena Safari Lodge.)9 Days/ 8 Nights Kenya Flying Family Safari Holiday

9 Days/ 8 Nights Kenya Flying Family Safari Holiday explores natures beauty across Kenya, from the shadows of the pink tinged peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the world-famous Amboseli National Park.

Spend two days in Amboseli with morning and afternoon game viewing drives. You may certainly see families of giraffe, herds of Zebra, Elephants and Antelope — and if you are lucky, you may spot a pride of Lions.

Your next destination is an hours flight from Amboseli to Samburu National Reserve situated on the banks of the Ewaso Ngiro River in the dry northern reaches of Kenya. It is a hot and arid area characterized by a parched landscape of hills and plains.

Lion, leopard and cheetah are also quite easy to spot, thanks in part to the lack of grass cover. Samburu is also home to large herds of elephants, and the reserve is well known for providing the opportunity to see wildlife that only lives in the dry north of Kenya.

The grand finale is the Masai Mara National Reserve one of the best known and most popular reserves in the whole of Africa. So why is that ? Perhaps it is because of the 'big skies', the open savannahs, the romance of films like 'Out of Africa' and certainly because of the annual wildebeest migration, the density of game, the variety of bird life and the chance of a hot air balloon ride.
