EPIC HELI HIGHLIGHTS
Right now, we’re dreaming of the epic heli trip we took our team on last month to explore the wildest corners of northern Kenya.
The Safari Collection team takes to the skies.
Stationed between Sasaab and Solio Lodge, The Safari Collection’s helicopter transports guests to some of the remotest places on earth. We asked ourselves, how can our fabulous sales team in the office accurately describe this experience to guests? And the answer was – they can’t possibly – unless they’ve lived and breathed it themselves! That’s why we whisked them off on the trip of a lifetime to see the Jewels of the North and the Sacred Mountain.
Our Eurocopter AS 350 B3 helicopter is based at either Sasaab or Solio.
‘Having your own wings gives you total freedom to explore Kenya’s wildest, most spectacular and extreme locations. Places inaccessible by land, untouched by humans and full of geographical wonders are suddenly at your fingertips’.
Morning Coffee stop.
Sunset cruising over the Samburu wilderness.
And boy did they feel the power of nature. Resilient, wild and untamed. The whole team were blown away by the variety of the landscape and were taken aback by the totally interactive nature of the trip… sand boarding down dunes, swimming in pools, hunting for fossils, landing on sacred mountains for sundowners. A completely immersive adventure and SO much more than a simple sightseeing tour.
Exploring the Sugata Sand dunes by foot.
Watch this space for a whole lot of awe-inspiring images, videos and memories from our journey to the ends of the earth. To whet your appetite, check out these trip highlights…
