Grevy's Zebra Fly-in Safari

Grevys Zebra Fly-in Safari: In full

If you'd truly like to escape the crowds, then this sensational trip into Kenya's remote northern desert and lake region will fit the bill. Using scenic charter flights in light aircraft you will leave the central highlands and fly across Laikipia to reach the desert mountain oasis of Mount Nyiru. From here you'll take a 4x4 safari vehicle on some of the country's most challenging roads to reach the shores of astonishing Lake Turkana, known as the "Jade Sea". For sheer exhilarating adventure and exposure to some of Kenya's most colourful traditional cultures, this safari is unbeatable.

After a safari as active as this, chilling on the Indian Ocean may be what you need. It's easy to add one of our beach holidays to the Kenya coast to your itinerary.


Days 1-4

4 nights at Desert Rose (full board & activities) | Northern Kenya, Kenya

Desert Rose has one of the most spectacular locations of any lodge in Kenya.At Wilson Airport you board a short scheduled flight to Nanyuki airport, the gateway to northern Kenya. Here you connect to a private charter flight into the far north (around 1 ½ hours), flying over desert landscapes traced by camel herders. At a remote bush airstrip at the base of Mount Nyiru you'll be met by the sturdy Desert Rose 4x4 vehicle for the incredibly steep drive up to the lodge. For the next four days this verdant and beautiful mountain setting is your home. Cultural and wildlife tracking excursions are topped off with a full-day expedition to the shores of Lake Turkana. This trip is a particularly sensational adventure in May each year, during the spectacular Lake Turkana cultural festival, when a dozen northern tribes gather at the small town of Loiyangalani to show off their finest traditional garb and put on some wonderful song and dance performances.

Day 5

After your private charter flight back to Nanyuki, connecting to your scheduled flight to Nairobi, you have the option of connecting to a flight to the coast to continue your holiday by the Indian Ocean.
