It was a beautiful day for flying and the conditions were ideal for a scenic flight over the Cape Peninsula in a helicopter. We took off in a South Westerly direction from Cape Town International Airport over the Cape flats and down the eastern shoreline of the peninsula. Flying low over False Bay we got a birds eye view of the small towns of Kalk Bay, Fish Hoek and Simon's Town; every now and then increasing our altitude as we flew over the rugged yet picturesque countryside as we headed towards Cape Point.

We’ve just had elections in Kenya. They were won by Uhuru Kenyatta, the son of Kenya’s founding father Jomo Kenyatta, in a very tight vote.
Kenya’s been independent for 50 years. It’s been a long and occasionally fraught journey from British rule to where we are now. Nairobi was not much more than a dot on the map when the British chose it to be the nation’s capital. Now it’s a city of three million people, and bidding to become the economic hub of east Africa.

One of the great pleasures of safari is connecting with the feeling of space and timelessness in the bush. The great seasonal migration, the coming of the rains, the seemingly eternal interdependence of prey and hunter: feeling connected to these is a real and legitimate pleasure and part of what our clients come for.
