World's Coolest Helicopter Rides
Laikipia Plateau, Kenya
Teeming with wildlife, Laikipia is a jumping-off point for airborne excursions to explore the lake-covered eroded volcano Mount Kenya and Ol Lolokwe, a sheer mountain sacred to Northern Kenya’s Samburu people. Along the way, passengers get a bird’s-eye view of animal patterns below along the vast savannas of the Northern Frontier District.
The Ride: U.K.-based Original Travel collects guests from their lodge and whisks them off on a heli-safari that includes either a champagne breakfast or cocktails.
$1,269 per person for three hours based on four passengers ($5,079 total).
