Helicopter Scenic Flight 2 Hours Mount Kenya: This is a 2 helicopter flying excursion that begins from Nanyuki Airfield in the Mount Kenya region. (Guest can be picked from hotels around Nanyuki and Laikipia).
The flight begins just before sunrise and you fly around the peaks of Mt Kenya which are Batian at 5,199 meters (17,057 feet), Nelion at 5,188 meters (17,021 feet), and Point Lenana at 4,985metres (16,355 feet).
The vast and desolate nature of Mount Kenya with its towering summit, sheer cliffs, and glaciers become apparent as we fly above the peaks of Batian and Nelion. The flight unveils great views of the many tarns and rivers found on the upper slopes of the mountain.
We then touch down for a picnic breakfast at Lake Michelson an alpine lake. Here you will enjoy beautiful views and unique mountain flora which include everlasting flowers, giant groundsel, lobelia & wild herbs which are typical for this afro-alpine zone.
An extraordinary landscape lies to the west and northern foothills of Mount Kenya. The Mountain has a great diversity of geographical features, vegetation zones and climate bands – these become apparent as we descend 3,000 meters from the peaks to the foothills in just 35 km.
There is no better way to appreciate this contrast than by helicopter. From heathland, mountain bamboo, luxuriant evergreen forest, and finally the stunning savannah plains of Northern Kenya – the epitome of what Africa is all about!
The private helicopter and pilot/ guides are provided by a leading air charter company based in East Africa, specializing in heli-safaris and adventures, with more than 15 years of experience in this field. The Eurocopter AS 350 B3’s is perfectly adapted to fly in East Africa’s hot and high environments.
