Cabin Classes available

One cabin class is available for all passengers. Planes are much smaller than commercial liners as they need to accommodate airstrips in bush/safari locations. The good news is flights are not long and every seat give you access to the best views of the flight!

Where we fly to:

Safarilink flies to over 22 destinations daily. They cover many of the best safari destinations within Kenya as well as crossing over into the Northern territory of Tanzania to make sure that you have some of the best options at hand.

Many of the safari flight companies fly a ‘scheduled circuit’ within and between the primary bush destinations and the airstrips servicing those locations. This gives rise to a booked or scheduled  ‘bus’ type service, where the aircraft will set down at a given location if a passenger is booked to disembark at that destination. This makes for adventurous and fun flying – and can be compared to the likes of a bus in the sky
