Helicopter Safari, Mount Kenya
Helicopter Safari at Mount Kenya If you like jaw-dropping views, this itinerary will more than satisfy. It starts when you transfer from your international flight in Nairobi to your private helicopter, which flies you to Solio lodge near the Aberdare highlands, soaring above the ice-capped snowy peaks of Mount Kenya. At Solio Lodge you will see an abundance of game from black and white rhino, to lions and herds of buffalo. You can enjoy a massage in your room by the fire or go horse riding across the plains.
From the exclusive Solio Lodge you and the helicopter will travel to the luxurious Desert Rose lodge where you’ll witness the astonishing rock formations of the Suguta Valley and descend to two remarkable lakes, Turkana and Logipi, to see vast flocks of pink flamingo. After a night at Desert Rose your route to Sasaab will take you over the Ndoto Mountains and the Mathews Range of northern Kenya. Once in the Samburu National Reserve you can enjoy a late afternoon short scenic flight to spot rare Grevy’s zebra from above, landing on the sacred Samburu mountain, Ol Donyo Sabachi (Ol Lolokwe), which towers 1,000m above the surrounding plains. You can complete the magical trip with an early evening walk to Sundowner Rock for panoramic 360° views of the Mathews Range, a magical experience with a fantastic finish.
