Join us for the ultimate experience with our stunning 2 Day Masai Mara Fly-In Safari from Diani Beach!

Two days is plenty of time to catch all the big game at the iconic Masai Mara National Reserve… if you go by plane. And that’s how we’ve designed this exciting two-day air safari from the beach. In just about two hours we’ll take you from the sands of the Kenya Coast to a land of lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, and lots more.

We’ll pick you up from your resort and minutes later you’ll be viewing Africa from the air – the Great Rift Valley and towering Mt. Kilimanjaro. This short flight will bring you to the airstrip at the Masai Mara, home to all of Africa’s “Big Five” wildlife.

Here, you’ll find the Great Migration of thousands of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, and more. It’s a streaming horde that’s been described as the largest movement of animals on the planet.

What a great way to expand your beach vacation with this easy Africa safari by air.

What’s Cool About The Masai Mara?

First of all, it’s pretty cool to land at an airstrip, coming to rest in a world of wildlife. Your Africa Kenya Safaris driver/guide will meet you in a private 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep, ready to begin exploring the park.

The Mara is known for its amazing density of wildlife – the richest ecosystem in the region. There are many prides of lions, plus all the other big cats. And the Mara River is alive with hippos and crocodiles. Predators and grazers alike overflow in this amazing park.
