Regarding luxury travel, the Masai Mara is hailed as one of the most enchanting destinations for tourists, both locals and foreigners.
Luxury tour operator Abercrombie and Kent and private aviation company, Wheels Up enriched the experience by offering a one-of-a-kind experience in 2023.
According to a report by Travel and Leisure, the travellers will be treated to a 10-day experience on the exclusive safari around Nairobi to its ultimate destination in Masai Mara.

“Set out on daily game drives in Kenya’s preeminent wildlife centres, Tsavo West National Park and the Masa Mara Game Reserve, capturing the Big Five and other animals and returning each time to the hospitality of award-winning safari camps,” read part of the profile on the official site.
The perks involve staying in some of Kenya’s most acclaimed luxury properties, including world-renowned Finch Hattons, handpicked safari guides and an exclusive visit to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, where tourists get a chance to adopt orphaned baby elephants.
Other activities involve visiting the home of Karen Blixen (who was recently immortalised in an international TV series, Out of Africa), experiencing hot air balloon rides and having private champagne breakfast in the Mara.
The experience will culminate in a three-night stay at the enchanting Sanctuary Olonana- where travellers reside near hippos.
Travellers are then enticed with a trip inside the Gulfstream G450 aircraft and Citation X. According to international rates, a Gulfstream G450 costs Ksh5.2 billion, and Citation X retails around Ksh1.2 billion.
For tourists to enjoy the 10-day experience, they have to part with Ksh1.9 million.
“As we’ve worked with A and K over the years, we’ve refined some of our offerings based on member feedback and engagement.
“These journeys reflect members’ variety of interests including rich cultural and historical experiences and rest and relaxation,” Abercrombie and Kent’s spokesperson told the media.
