The Safari Collection's new experiences:

A new private, mobile camp in the Laikipia Plateau, available in conjunction with at least 3 nights at Sasaab, Solio Lodge or Sala's Camp. Explore wild valleys, plateaus, boulders, rivers, waterfalls, pools and wildlife at your pace with no-one else around.
 

Siruai Expedition Camp


A thrilling new addition to The Safari Collection is their authentic, private mobile camp in the Laikipia Plateau. Available as an add-on to stays at SOLIO LODGE, SASAAB or SALA'S CAMP, and situated in the 43 000-hectare privately-owned Suyian Ranch, we regard SIRUAI EXPEDITION CAMP as the ultimate fly-camp experience in Kenya.

Helicopter excursions


From Sasaab and Solio Lodge await the discovery of Kenya like never before. HELICOPTER EXCURSIONS offer a fantastic way to absorb the magnificent scenery and beauty of areas undiscovered or hard to get to. Consider the incredible manoeuvrability – turn back and hover over wildlife or touch down beside a turquoise pool for a refreshing swim.

FAST FACTS:
  • THE HELI — Eurocopter AS 350 B3, with 5 passenger seats, sliding doors and great low-level cruising with optimum viewing.
  • THE LOAD — min age is 2 years. Soft-sided luggage, max 15kg/passenger (incl. hand luggage) if all passengers weigh under 100kg.
  • THE PILOT — Kenyan-born Kieran Allen has clocked over 1000 flying hours in the AS 350 alone. His knowledge and passion for Kenya's flora & fauna, as well as the geology of Kenya's Great Rift Valley and nomadic tribes, make him an ideal pilot and guide.
  • THE TRIPS — level-up your transfer between Solio & Sasaab, or take a special excursion. Recommended trips are detailed in the HELICOPTER EXCURSIONSdocument, starting from US$ 2 200 per excursion (5 passengers).
  • PRE-BOOK — to ensure availability and qualify for commissions.

Kenya

WHAT WE LOVE: Kenya is the one country that offers everything. From the fun and funky capital city of Nairobi to the pristine beaches along the coast - Kenya offers Fantastic diversity. The gorgeous Laikipia with its lush landscapes is crowned by its vast conservancies, the arid Northern Frontier which is home to the colourful and proud Samburu is an experience best complemented by to the open plains of the Mara. Kenya's savannahs are rich with game, the cultural encounters are authentic, and the dramatic landscapes characterised by equatorial forests and mighty snow-capped mountains. Safaris have been the mainstay of Kenya’s tourism for many decades and it also rates as one of the top five bird-watching destinations in the world.
