This Experience Sends You Heli-biking on Kenya’s Tallest Peak

You’ll be dropped at around 13,800 ft, where you will begin your thrilling descent.

By Samantha Coles

Travel to Kenya and you’ll likely want to spend time seeking out the Big Five. With this itinerary from Cartology Travel, an agency specializing in luxury tailor-made trips, you can certainly experience all the typical (and some less typical) safari delights such as heading out on game drives, meeting a canine anti-poaching team to learn how they track, and spending time with an elephant conservation and research team.

But this itinerary has a little extra razzle-dazzle: Embark on a full day of heli-biking on Mount Kenya, an extinct volcano and the second-highest peak in Africa (the first being Kilimanjaro).

You’ll be dropped at around 13,800 ft, where you will begin your thrilling descent, riding down the mountain and taking in the captivating views. Other highlights of the 11-night itinerary include a helicopter flight to the nearly inaccessible Lake Turkana (the world’s largest permanent desert lake) and a hot-air balloon ride over the plains of the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

From $49,500 per person. Contact, +44 208 156 6324,
