Going for a Kenya Safari from India
Kenya is surprisingly close to India and there are well-connected flights daily from major Indian cities. A direct flight takes only 6 hours.
The quickest way to get to Kenya from India is by taking a direct Kenyan Airways flight from Mumbai to Nairobi. There are daily flights departing from Mumbai, India, in the morning and arriving in Nairobi, Kenya by 11 am. This gives you enough time to head straight for your safari.
From other Indian cities like New Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Calcutta and Chennai, you can either connect to the Kenyan Airways flight departing from Mumbai. Alternatively, there is good connectivity from the Middle East. Etihad, Emirates & Qatar Airways all connect to Nairobi on a daily basis.
Travelling within Kenya on your safari
The easiest way to get around in Kenya is to take a small bush flight to your next destination. This is called a fly-in safari. We recommend this option because roads in rural Kenya are often bumpy and dusty, and it takes quite long to get around. Since most safari game drives happen in a vehicle, you’ll also end up spending too much time within a vehicle, getting tired by the time you arrive within the national park or game reserve.
When you arrive in Nairobi, our representative can take you to Wilson Airport where you will catch your flight.
Alternatively, you can do an overland safari, meaning you will drive to your next destination in a 4×4 vehicle. While this option takes longer, you get to see more of rural Kenya and it works out to be more cost effective for groups of 4 persons or more.
Top Safari Experiences in Kenya (for guests from India and else where)
The Great Wildebeest Migration
If you wish to witness one of the largest natural migrations in the world, head to the Masai Mara National Game Reserve from July to October. Thousands of wildebeest cross into the Masai Mara from the sweeping plains of the Serengeti in search for greener pastures. Along with them are huge herds of zebras, elephants and giraffes. Lions, leopards and cheetahs eagerly await their arrival, as does the menacing Nile crocodile, waiting on the banks of the Mara River.
The Big Cats of the Mara
The Mara is a great destination year-round destination. Why you ask? Because it has some of the highest densities of big cats in the world. Lions, leopards, cheetahs — the Mara has it all!
We love Laikipia in Northern Tanzania. It’s the perfect addition to any safari because aside from game drives you can do other fun things like go on guided walks (literally a few meters away from a herd of elephants), horse riding safaris, swimming, fishing and much more.
Amboseli National Park
Families of elephants marching amongst acacias with the glaciers of Mount Kilimanjaro as a back drop. Who wouldn’t want to see that?
Rift Valley Lakes
From Nakuru to Bogoria to Elementaita, the great rift valleys lakes are excellent for game viewing as well as seeing spectacular explosions of flamingoes.
