NEW: Vehicle Wheelchair Ramps
We have recently introduced vehicle wheelchair ramps for our wheelchair bound guests.

Please do let us know should your clients require the use of the ramps.
In 2020 Air France will launch daily flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle International Airport and Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. In March 2019, the airline increased flights from three to five times a week, serviced by the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. Air France resumed flights to Nairobi in 2018 after an 18 year hiatus.
OMANAIR AND KENYA AIRWAYS
Oman Air and Kenya Airways have expanded their code share, increasing the destinations available to passengers. The expansion will allow seamless connectivity to Oman Air passengers travelling beyond Nairobi to Entebbe and Johannesburg, while Kenya Airways passengers can now extend their travel beyond Muscat, Oman, to Karachi and Lahore in Pakistan.
Opening Soon: Reteti House
Reteti House is a new, exclusive-use house located in Namunyak Conservancy scheduled to be open in 2020. Located in Kenya’s northern frontier, in the shadow of the Mathews Ranges, Namunyak is an area of pristine wilderness and is home to elephant, leopard and the rare wild dog.
Reteti House will have seven rooms and will sleep a maximum of 16 guests. A dip in the swimming pool would be the best place to cool off the warm Samburu days. Guests can get to Reteti House by private charter into Namunyak airstrip or by scheduled flight to Kalama approx.1.5 hours drive or to Lewa airstrip approx. 3.5 hours drive.
AK Philanthropy: Safe Water for Schools Initiative
Access to clean drinking water is a huge challenge in East Africa, more so for communities living in rural areas who depend on unpurified water sources such as streams, lakes and rivers. As a result, water borne diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid and other health complications arise causing untold suffering.
AK Philanthropy has partnered with LifeStraw to provide safe drinking water for school children in the Masai Mara. The Safe Water for Schools initiative utilizes LifeStraw's community filter, a high-volume water purifier that converts contaminated water into safe drinking water by removing bacteria, viruses and protozoan parasites. So far the initiative has benefited over 16,000 Maasai students.
Include a visit to Enkereri Primary School in your clients' Masai Mara safari and let them see the LifeStraw filter in action.
INSIDER ACCESS: Bird fun for the family
The history of falconry, the use of birds of prey to hunt, started in the East as far back as 2000 BC, and from there moved to Europe, Asia and the rest of the world. The sport was popular among the wealthy noble and was taught alongside riding and archery. The practice of falconry, however, has dwindled over the years due to growing technology and unfortunately the use of pesticides which has seen the bird numbers dwindle significantly.
Enjoy a day of noble fun at the Raptor Rehabilitation Trust in Karen, Nairobi. Get a close encounter of the eagles, hawks and owls as they perch on your arm much like they did in medieval times. Raptor Rehabilitation Trust was formed to rehabilitate injured raptors, raise orphaned birds of prey, and increase public awareness about the importance of raptors and conservation of birds of prey. Among other reasons, birds of prey are essential because they help control the populations of rodents such as squirrels and rats, fish, insects and reptiles. Email us to include a day of bird fun in your clients' itinerary and enhance their stay in Nairobi.
