Fly - in Safaris

Fly-in safaris offer you the opportunity to escape, to soar over Africa and watch it unfold at the horizon as you fly from lodge to lodge. Roads in Africa are not always in the best condition, especially after rain, and road transfers can be long. Instead, enjoy the comfort of a fly-in safari, your belongings safely stowed, and Africa laid out like a blanket beneath you.

Our fly-in safaris are based around hops in light aircraft out of Nairobi/ Mombasa or any touristic circuit and staying at small to medium-size safari camps. You may be under canvas, but you’re definitely not camping in the normal sense of the word.

Relax and watch the world drop away as you take off on your African adventure. Soar above herds grazing or snaking their way across the vast stretches of land unfurling beneath your wings. Hurry onwards, for when you land you get to explore via 4×4 or minibus, the undergrowth you currently rise above.”

A fly-in safari allows for more time at your chosen destination, whether it be relaxing at your camp or lodge, or winding your way across the land in search of wildlife. It also gives you the freedom to explore further afield and to visit a more diverse range of parks and lodges than if you were tethered to the road. At each of your chosen camps or lodges, experience game activities in 4x4s, minibuses accompanied by expert guides and trackers.

Here at Ultimate Africa Expeditions we’re passionate about our fly-in safaris, so we’ve selected some of our favorite itineraries to inspire you. But don’t forget that you can create your own tailor made adventure with the help of one of our safari experts.
