Scenic Air Safaris launches two new itineraries focusing on wildlife and conservation and iconic sites across Africa

Making the most of their recently acquired executive aircraft, luxury pioneering safari operator Scenic Air Safaris has just launched two new diverse flying safari itineraries. These exciting small group adventures will focus on frontline wildlife conservation efforts, with a nine-day itinerary offering the unique opportunity to spend time in the company of some of the world’s leading biologists and conservationists.

The 14-day itinerary in east and southern Africa, which will take in some of the most iconic locations and experiences on offer in sub-Saharan Africa. With the time saving convenience of private charter flights between destinations, Scenic Air Safaris are offering flexibility and time saving journeys to remote and beautiful places whilst avoiding the hassles of scheduled air travel in Africa.

The 9-day Endangered Species Safari across Kenya, focuses on conservation efforts to help preserve wildlife that is both vulnerable and in danger of extinction including Grevy’s Zebra, African Wild Dog, Reticulated Giraffe, Black Rhino, Lion, Cheetah and Elephant. To offer a greater insight into the human wildlife conflict and to support conservation efforts to help protect endangered species, Scenic Air Safaris are including exceptional access to renowned specialist conservationists such as Saba Douglas Hamilton who manages the Save the Elephants Foundation with her father Iain, David Maskell, the architect and curator of an orphaned Lion rehabilitation program, and Dr Elena Chelysheva who has spent the last 30 years based in the Masai Mara pioneering research into cheetah behaviour and identification. Highlights also include a scenic flight across the Laikipia Plateau and time at Lewa’s Wildlife Conservancy, renowned for the preservation of Black Rhino, a project led by Chief Conservation Officer Geoffrey Chege but also Grevy’s Zebra and Reticulated Giraffe with insights from Willie Roberts. Also included on the itinerary is the opportunity to spend time tracking Wild Dog with expert Simon Kenyon.
