A safari for those who do not want to take the drives from one safari park to another. An 8-day Kenyan safari where the inter park travel is by air rather than road. This will allow several game views overborne with the comfort of air travel. The most well known of the Kenyan game parks – Amboseli, Samburu and Masai Mara have all been covered in this specially designed safari. The safari allows you to culminate with optional tours to Lamu, Malindi, Mombasa and Zanzibar or do a chimpanzee/gorilla viewing in Rwanda, Burundi or Uganda.
