Flamingos over Lake Natron

The Rift Valley itself is an avian highway for the flamingos, pelicans, storks and other waterbirds that thrive in these areas.

The Lesser Flamingo often found in flocks of a million plus, breeds and feeds on the shallow lakes of the Great Rift Valley in East Africa. It’s diet of microscopic algae enhances it pink plumage.The stunning Great Rift Valley Lakes of Natron, Magadi, Nakuru , Bogoria, and Elementaita link feeding grounds for these flying beauties and the Rift Valley itself is an avian highway for the flamingos, pelicans, storks and other waterbirds that thrive in these areas.

One of the best ways to experience this exotic wildlife spectacle is on a professionally guided 8day /7nt luxury air safari with Severin Air Safaris. Utilising a 9 seater luxury equipped Cessna Grand Caravan, guests visit the fabulous Masai Mara with its unique diversity of fauna & flora, the plains and marshes of Amboseli National Park with its 100’s and 100’s of Elephants, all framed by the snow covered towering backdrop of Mt Kilimanjaro and onto the sprawling wilderness of Tsavo East & West national parks with its abundance of large mammals, finishing up at the azure Indian Ocean coast.

January 2013 will see the introduction of another second plane covering the Northern wildlife circuit in Kenya. Again this luxury leather seated executive aircraft will run an 8 day safari covering the following locations – Loisaba Lodge & Star beds in the game rich area of Laikipia, Chui Lodge at Lake Naivasha in the Rift Valley and Karen Blixen camp in the Masai Mara. Extensions will be available to Shaba and Meru National parks taking in Joy’s Camp & Elsa’s Kopje.

Chief Pilot James Davies reiterated the joy of such aerial travel -“We make your journey as exceptional as the destination” – proving that this way of seeing wild Africa is an experience in itself second to none.
