9-Day Flying Safari to Lewa, Loisaba & Masai Mara

See three of the richest private game reserves in Kenya on this exciting flying safari. Begin your journey in Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, flanked by Mt. Kenya to the south and the arid lowlands to the north. It is here where you will have your best chance to see endangered black rhinos. Then journey to the Laikipia region, home to rich game viewing and interactions with the Samburu people. You’ll also spend one night in the ‘biggest bedroom in the world’ – the African sky. Finally, you’ll revel in a “Big 5” Masai Mara safari in the heart of the African bush.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.
