Set off early for a guided mountain biking or horse-riding adventure on the conservancy where you will be free to explore your surroundings from a different perspective, weaving through the hills and valleys. An epic quad-biking adventure can also be arranged, where you will traverse the sandy dry riverbeds on ATVs, watching out for wildlife along the way, or head out for a picnic in the Ngare Ndare Forest followed by a swim in the blue pools and a thrilling tree-top canopy walk.
Hop aboard a helicopter to truly experience the magnificence of this area. Scan the changing landscape below as you travel northwards to visit the Suguta Valley, touching down at the remote Koros Camp near Lake Turkana for lunch. A heart-warming stop at the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is a highlight in this area, where you will watch the baby elephants and their carers at feeding-time and learn more about preventing human-wildlife conflict across the region.

Soar high above the Kenyan landscapes, witnessing aerial views of the vast savannahs, majestic mountains, and winding rivers that define this magnificent land, before touching down at the enchanting seaside town of Diani Beach.
