I got tired of the long ferry rides to and from Pemba from Unguja. So I opted to take the flight home from Zanzibar. I managed to do it via email after I had password problems on the site. The booking was hustle free and the ticket was sent to me by email. The flight was smooth and on time...

For the first time we flew from/to Diani/Ukunda to Samburua National Park. The flights were on time and confortable. The convenience of being on the beach in the morning and then in a game park camp in the afternoon is tremendous. The views from the planse, the smaller ones flying at low altitude, are tremendous.

We decided at the last minute to book this short flight back to Nairobi instead of taking the 5 hour drive. It was a great decision! In fact we had a driver ready to go but we did it anyway. We were the only two passengers and it was smooth and quick. I was happy and surprised to see a...

No complaints about the flying. Logistics of customs and immigration on the Kenyan side are extremely confusing and disoriented.

The Safarilink really links visitors from one destination to another destination semalessly. Having a travellers conscious needs you will find the best from them from the time that you will reach the airstrip, board and fly. It's an experience to be remembered.

Awesome airline to use for your internal safari plans. Their service was punctual, clear communication via email, had water for customers and the pilots were helpful with bags and also provided information on upcoming airstrip stops. We had a flight scheduled from Nanyuki airstrip to Olare Orok airstrip, but Nanyuki airstrip was closed for renovations. Safarilink team emailed me informing...

For our trip to the Mara North Conservancy we were dropped off by our agent at Wilson Airport Nairobi. Flying is a much better option now than when we first came to Kenya 20 years ago, when we were driven to the Masai Mara. The check-in at the airport was efficient, quick and the staff very friendly and helpful. The...
