Visit some of the worlds most fascinating destinations with us
A flying safari is a great way to get into the more remote safari locations, saving a lot of time in doing so. Although generally speaking, a flying itinerary is a more expensive way of traveling around the country, it allows you to see and do so much more in a shorter amount of time.
Flying safaris are an experience in themselves. The flights are usually in small Cessna Caravan planes, which can seat anywhere between 4-15 people. Flying over dramatic landscapes gives you a viewpoint you would never get otherwise; Imagine seeing the Great African Rift Valley in Kenya from the sky, the lush Bwindi Mountains in Uganda, or spotting the migration herds over the iconic Serengeti.
Some lodges share the public airstrips while others have their own private airstrips. Once you land safely on the bush airstrip, you will be met on arrival by your driver/guide and begin your safari straight away. If your budget allows, we would highly recommend a flying safari.
Amboseli National Park, Masai Mara, Diani Beach11 NightsFrom $10,998 PPThis 11-night itinerary captures the essence of a Kenyan safari. Starting in the luxury hotel of Hemingway in Nairobi, you will fly over to Amboseli National Park to watch the legendary herds of elephant walk and eat, against a backdrop of Africa’s tallest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. You will then fly onto Meru National Park – a beautiful park where rhino sightings are the best in all of Africa.
Finally you will fly onto the iconic Masai Mara National Park. Here, you will see lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, hippo and buffalo among many others. If you time it right, you will also witness the great wildebeest migration. You will finish your trip with four nights on the white sands of Diani Beach.

Zanzibar Island, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park10 NightsFrom $8,928 PPFor those looking to combine the highlights of Tanzania into a compact itinerary, this is a great option. You’ll start your trip on the idyllic island of Zanzibar, enjoying white sand beaches and azure waters. The hotel sits slightly back from the white-sand beaches and offers a range of facilities like a swimming pool and luxury villas. After your time relaxing in Zanzibar, you’ll fly to the Manyara airstrip to start your safari. You’ll spend two nights in the Ngorongoro Highlands where you will get the chance to game drive in both Lake Manyara National Park and descend down into the Ngorongoro Crater.
You’ll then make your way to the Serengeti National Park to spend three nights on safari, with the opportunity to see the Great Migration. Depending on the time of year, you will either fly to the northern plains of the Serengeti (June to October) or head down to the Ndutu plans in the south (December to March) to witness the calving season. On the final day, you will fly from the Serengeti airstrip to Kilimanjaro, where you will connect to your international flights home.
Ruaha National Park, Selous Game Reserve, Zanzibar Island10 NightsFrom $9,169 PPThe southern parks of Tanzania are less-visited and off the beaten track. Their isolation makes it even more special. Firstly, you will fly into the Selous Game Reserve. As the mighty Rufiji River runs through the park, game viewing activities are focused on the water, with boat safaris, game drives and catch-and-release fishing offered. You will then fly to Ruaha National Park which is a very different landscape – dry, and vast. Here you will stay in luxury accommodation overlooking a baobab forest, enjoying a week on safari. After your southern Tanzania safari, you will fly over to Zanzibar Island to enjoy 4 nights of white-sand beaches and azure waters.
