On Wings Safari Kenya

Overview

‘Fly camping’ originates from early days hunters who packed the outer layer of a tent and used rope strung up as a stand-alone shelter, without walls. Nowadays the tents are under a mosquito net, under the stars with an armed ranger close by giving you that remote magical experience of the wilderness around you. This is always set at a distance from the main camp.
