The Great Migration with Hides & Helicopters in Kenya’s South Rift Valley

Tour Details
Hides and Helicopters Square Image

A one of a kind experience combining Kenya's Great Migration, low level photographic hides and scenic aerial photography over Lake Natron and Lake Magadi to photograph vast flocks of flamingo and other wildlife.

Deep in the heart of the Great Rift Valley, beyond the volcanic lunar landscape surrounding the soda lakes of Magadi and Natron, within the Olkirimatian Conservancy, lies the oasis of Lentorre. We will enjoy exclusive use of the lodge and have exclusive access for 4 nights to the underground photographic hide which attracts a wide variety of wildlife including Leopard and Striped Hyena.

As if that wasn’t enough, we take to the skies with each of our 4 guests enjoying a total of 3 hours of scenic, doors off, helicopter flights over Lake Natron and Lake Magadi as we photograph the abstract patterns and textures along with the thousands of flamingo’s which line the shores of these two soda lakes.
