The simplest yet memorable way to travel in East Africa is by air. Cheetah Safaris specializes in Flying Safaris, using various different reputable scheduled and private charter aviation companies. Enabling you to cover large distances in a short time, traveling by air gives you the maximum amount of time on the ground to enjoy the local ecosystem and safari property.

Flying Safaris Give You The Full Experience

Only by flying across East Africa can one truly appreciate the sheer scale of a country’s size and beauty. There are scheduled flights which connect all the main safari destinations as well as the coast, but for a more exclusive experience, we recommend taking your own private plane –for true luxury and flexibility.

Helicopter Safaris

For the ultimate “game drive”, take to the skies for a bird’s eye view of Kenya’s dramatic and diverse landscapes. By helicopter you can reach the remote moorlands of Mt. Kenya, soar over Kenya’s vast plateaus and watch wildlife roam, hunt and bask beneath you, or visit the isolated and dramatic landscapes of Lake Turkana, Laikipia and Samburu. Cheetah Safaris can arrange helicopter excursions from a morning’s scenic flight to exhilarating transfers between camps and lodges.
