The best of Africa
One of our favourite trips, Epic Flying Safari, has recently been featured in a six-page spread in the Telegraph Ultra Travel magazine. Journalist Lisa Grainger wrote a fantastic article about her journey from Zimbabwe to Kenya (the second half of the safari) discovering Africa from a whole new angle.
It’s the best of Africa,” as one guest puts it, “in one hit.
Having grown up in Zimbabwe, Grainger is particularly fond of this diverse continent, however, even she felt her epic journey through the air gave her a fresh perspective on what each country had to offer. From weathered mineral cliffs in Zimbabwe to the dazzling aquamarine reefs of Mozambique she encountered an abundance of wildlife, luxury camps and sumptuous fresh seafood along the way.
Luca, the expert pilot for this extraordinary journey, explains “the joy of this trip is that there is no real flight path. If we want to go low and see something, we can”. He is not only the pilot, however, he is also a guide and conservationist and, along with his wife Antonella, runs the Campi Ya Kanzi in Kenya, the final stop on this trip. Having this expert knowledge throughout the safari ensures clients are in the right place at the right time to maximise wildlife encounters and also that they learn copious amounts of information about each of the places they visit.
