This beautiful video, commissioned by Ol Jogi and made by the Matador Network, gives a wonderful sense of the freedom you could feel on a helicopter safari. It could be you flying over this breathtaking landscape and landing to experience its wildness and beauty. Jamie Gamer has it all right - it's a huge privilege! Ol Jogi is a spectacularly lovely, privately-owned conservation area in Laikipia.
Explore Kenya in the most spectacular way possible, with private Helicopter Safaris. Cover endless ground in an unconventional way; touring vast savannahs peppered with immense herds of wildlife, snow-capped equatorial mountains and traditional peoples who bring soul and colour to the earth.
When you think of Africa, you’re probably thinking of Kenya. It’s the lone acacia silhouetted on the savannah against an horizon stretching to eternity. It’s the icy mountain lake balanced high on the equator, yet within sight of harsh deserts. It’s the Great Rift Valley that once threatened to tear the continent asunder, and it’s the dense forests giving water and life to it all. In short, Kenya is a country of epic land forms that stir our deepest longings for this very special continent.

Route: Nairobi, via Lake Magadi, Lake Natron & the Maasai Mara, returning to Nairobi
Flying Hours: 3 Hours
Depart Wilson Airport heading west toward the Great Rift Valley, plunge down the escarpment into the Rift, fly over the famous Olorgesailie Prehistoric Site, then on to Lake Magadi to view startling pink flocks of Lesser & Greater flamingoes bright against the blinding white salt of the lake.
After a Picnic Breakfast on Lake Magadi Island, you'll cross the Ngarenaro Swamp, view the unforgettable beauty of Shompole Mountain and the blood-red, salt-encrusted pools of Lake Natron before swooping up to the Nguruman Escarpment. Here, as you float effortlessly through dramatic gorges and skim ancient trees, you'll see the sparkle of clear streams and waterfalls & spot elephants & buffalo in the dense forest below.
You'll drop down to the valley floor & follow the Southern Ewaso Ng'iro River towards Mt Suswa - a great open caldera - then west again to the Maasai Mara ready for a game drive and a delicious lunch surrounded by the abundant plains game and the famous big cats of Kenya's best loved conservation area.
Leave the Maasai Mara with the long evening shadows stretching ahead of you, to reach Wilson Airport before the sun sets on a rare and special day.
