FUN-photos: A&K Private Jet Wild Life Safari – Kenya

December 29, 2022 by  

Rwanda to Kenya – 1.5 hrs – lose 1 hr – Angama Mara – 3 nights not 5*

8 am depart – 3 hr drive back down to airport – arrive Nairobi then board 45 min charter flight – 30 min safari jeep arrives camp at 4:45 pm – perched high atop the hill with breath taking views of the vast expanse of the Masai Mara

  • Day 1 – 4:30 wake up – 5 am drive for balloon ride & Champagne breakfast in the bush – game drive back 10:30

Opt out of afternoon game drive for a divine 90 min massage on our deck overlooking the Masai Mara

  • Day 2 – 7:30 game drive – overall disappointing with lack of animals compared to 2019

Take afternoon off and bush dinner is a disappointment as well.

Fun-fact: Our trip leader John, AKA SS Supervisor, lives in Kenya and his next-door neighbor runs Nairobi airport operations. Only handed passports to him and got them back on arrival at our camp.Kenya to Boston – 18hrs – Four Seasons – 1 night

October 27 – 5:30 am depart – more John airport connections so no immigration!

We had fuel stops in Malta & Shannon, IRE where the flight crew changed. We were so lucky! The new crew didn’t have the same energy.

October 28 – 8:30 pm – arrive Logan Airport – only short drive to hotel.

October 29 – Boston Commons is directly across the street from our hotel so have lovely stroll before taking a 5 pm non-stop flight back to San Diego.

  • Overview – Still had to go thru TSA but not main terminals – too much with all the time zones and felt like we jammed and slammed it.

Only place we had stayed before was Rathambore in 2016 and only saw a 1-pixel tiger – way, way ever so far away! Also, one of the hardest animals to get to see “up close and personal!” It’s pretty much a given that you will see the “Big 5” in Africa with four game drives.

WATC = What are the Chances! Xena clearly here with so many magical moments – Japan & the Macaques, seeing the tiger, feeding the lemurs, flying the plane, suite upgrade & easy gorilla trek with so many to see. Not everyone had it so lucky!
