These fly-in safaris are perfect for visitors to Kenya who have limited time to spare, or would simply like to add on a few nights to an existing trip. Conveniently, trips depart twice a day from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport and include return flights, all transfers, meals, an English speaking driver-guide and 4x4 vehicles with a guaranteed window seat.

For afternoon flight departures, itineraries will end with a morning game drive. Dates for any of these trips can be tailored to suit clients’ itinerary. Masai Mara is one of Africa’s grandest wilderness areas and simply cannot be left out of a safari in Kenya. You will always see a wide variety of wildlife here, though the Big-5 and the migration are what most visitors come for.

Guests will be collected early from Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport or a city hotel and transferred to Wilson Airport for the scheduled flight to the Masai Mara. Flight departs Nairobi at 1000hrs and arrives at approx 1100hrs into Masai Mara. Upon arrival, you will be met by a guide from camp/lodge and drive to the camp/lodge.

Day 3: Masai Mara - Nairobi

Following an early morning game drive and breakfast, there will be a transfer back to the airstrip for the scheduled flight to Nairobi. Flight departs Mara at 1100hrs and arrives into Nairobi at 1215hrs. Upon arrival, you will be met and transferred to your Nairobi hotel where the safari ends. For those who arrive after lunch on Day 1, there will be morning activities on the last day before returning to Nairobi late afternoon. Governors' Camp lies on the banks of the Mara River in the west of the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve.

The camp is in a spot once reserved for the colonial governors of Kenya and their royal visitors. When created in 1972, it set new standards in luxury as a tented camp, placing particular emphasis on comfort and service. Maintaing these qualities, the camp has been refined and improved over the years. However, special care has been taken to preserve an atmosphere in which today's traveller may share some of the experiences of a classic safari and enjoy the landscape and wildlife that so inspired adventurers such as Hemingway.

Tents are carefully positioned for uninterrupted views from their verandas and are stylishly decorated. Niceties such as early morning tea and ginger biscuits are brought to your tent and daily meals are absolutely delicious. Many people dress up for dinner! Activities are extremely flexible with walking and 4x4 safaris offered.
