SkySafari East Africa

Front-row seats for all the animal action in both the magnificent Masai Mara and the boundless Serengeti. 

East Africa uncovered.

Two African giants. Millions of animals. Near-endless wilderness. One seamless, epic journey… Our combined trip to Kenya and Tanzania encompasses the very best of this intoxicating pair, from the heat-hazed, star-streaked Kenyan savannah, teeming with wildlife, to the highlands of Northern Tanzania, home to the continent’s highest mountain, the planet’s largest intact caldera, vast golden plains, truly enormous skies.

Our carefully curated flying safari will deliver the deepest, most engrossing East Africa immersion. We’ve thought of everything: luxurious lodges, executive planes, smooth transfers, the most incredible locations – every last detail covered, so all you have to do is relax into your trip of a lifetime.

The best of the best

Nowhere does wildlife like Kenya and Tanzania. This is where you’ll find wilderness on a mind-blowing scale: big skies, big herds, big mountains, Big Five, big drama. And we’ll fly you to the best of both.

Touch down in Amboseli National Park, where you can watch huge herds of elephant and a vast cast of creatures roam in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro. Take off for Laikipia’s ground-breaking Loisaba Conservancy, where community-focused conservation helps preserve landscapes as dramatic as they are biodiverse. Then fly right into the wildest shows on earth: we’ll ensure you have front-row seats for all the animal action in both the magnificent Masai Mara and the boundless Serengeti. Finish in the great, gaping crater of Ngorongoro, a UNESCO-listed basin brim-full of wildlife, known as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’.

The gift of time

We’ve designed our East Africa fly-in trip to give you more of that most precious thing: time. Using our own fleet of small, smart planes, rather than regular scheduled flights, our SkySafari East Africa means you’ll spend almost a day less travelling. That’s a day more for relaxing on your veranda overlooking the plains, for picnicking out in the bush, for fitting an extra game drive or two.

Fly with us and there’s no needless waiting around or airport tedium. You’ll be driven straight onto runways to board our elegant aircraft, which seat only nine passengers. You’ll sink into luxe white-leather seats with a glass of chilled champagne. You’ll get a greater allowance of luggage and more space to relax. You’ll soar straight to your next wilderness destination, no stop-offs or detours eating into your adventure. And you’ll be able to rest easy, knowing all our trips operate on a carbon-negative basis.

At SkySafari we’re committed to people: our guests, our staff and the communities in which we work.

Super Sleeps

The best safaris are those that put you right where the action is. Which is why we fly you between the Elewana Collection, a handful of unique camps and lodges across Kenya and Tanzania that combine sumptuous style with unrivalled locations and direct access to the wilderness.

At Elewana Tortilis Camp, your makuti-thatched tent will gaze across to Kilimanjaro and Amboseli’s profusion of game. Escarpment-top Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp has views to Mt Kenya, plus opportunities to delve into the surrounding valleys by jeep, bike, horse or camel. Elewana Sand River Masai Mara brings a dash of 1920s glamour to the savannah; better still, its award-winning tents sit by its namesake waterway, perfect for when the Great Migration passes by.

Elewana The Manor is possibly the most sumptuous stop on the safari circuit: its elegant Cape Dutch-styled cottages are perfectly placed for forays into the Ngorongoro Crater. In the Serengeti, we’ll take you to the best spot for the season: the handsome bygone-era tents of Elewana Serengeti Pioneer Camp, in the southern Serengeti, are wonderful when the wildebeest are calving and nearby Lake Magadi is flushed with flamingoes; the sophisticated stilted suites of Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp are the place to watch the annual passing of two million ungulates

Travel with a conscience

At SkySafari we’re committed to people: our guests, our staff and the communities in which we work. We’ll always give back, which is why each of our trips supports Land & Life, a foundation committed to a sustainable future for tourism. Land & Life aims to ensure that locals benefit from your visit, and that Africa’s precious wildlife and habitats are protected for the next generation.

Also, every Elewana Collection property we use is focused on responsible tourism, from revenue-sharing projects that support local conservancies to sponsorship of schools and clinics to well-managed recycling. All of the camps and lodges in Tanzania have undergone the  vigorous verification process to receive eco-ratings from Responsible Tourism Tanzania. All of its Kenya properties are members of Ecotourism Kenya, the majority achieving the highest accolade of a Gold Eco-rating.

Our carefully curated SkySafari East Africa delivers maximum variety and adventure in high style, with high efficiency
