Villiers Recommends… Claire’s Safaris
You may well have read our previous post on why we think a luxury safari is right up there amongst the most indulgent and special holidays you can take (see article here), particularly when one begins by chartering a private jet straight to Nairobi or Arusha!
Between mid October and the end of March is the ideal time to visit countries such as Kenya, Tanzania, and of course South Africa. The weather is at it’s best, and particularly in East Africa one has the chance to witness one of the ten natural wonders of the world – the Great Migration, which takes place largely between January and March. This annual phenomenon is also one of the seven natural wonders of Africa, and is primarily between Tanzania and the Maasai Mara in Kenya.
Being in the business we are in, and being avid fans of aviation in all its forms, this leads us to think that whilst it is one thing to witness this natural spectacular from the ground, it is an entirely different prospect to experience it from the air. Step in, Claire’s Safaris.
This is a wonderful company based in Naivasha, Kenya, which will tailor an air safari to your personal requirements, giving you the ability to experience far more of this beautiful country than would be possible by travelling overground. Claire was born and raised in Kenya and knows the country inside out, from the best spots to visit at any given time of year, where to find the wildlife, the best lodges, and most importantly the people, that create a memorable experience.
Claire has her own Cessna 182, and personally accompanies you on every leg of your trip, giving you the full benefit of her wealth of local knowledge along with wonderful tales of her own personal experiences. We have been lucky enough to travel with Claire in this way and could not stress more emphatically what a wonderful time we had, and thoroughly recommend this company to you.
