Welcome on board


Dear Reader,

Welcome on board! This issue of Ndege News will give you a taste of an African flavor that I am sure you looked forward to when you planned your holiday in East Africa! Pictures, articles, opinions in this magazine will portray and define skies and landscapes that you have not seen before. African colors, sounds and feelings are indeed different from what you have ever experienced in the past. Highlands, savannahs, lakes or the Indian Ocean, will all give you that immense sensation of space and far away horizons, a healing dimension that will cure the many wounds caused by an active everyday life back home.

One of the greatest shows on earth is without doubt the Wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara. It is one event that once seen makes you wonder why we keep damaging our environment the way we do. The spectacle is so awesome and overwhelming that you wish that it will be there forever, we are

definitely not doing enough to protect what we are generously offered by mother earth.

Five years ago, Airkenya Express decided that one way to contribute in preserving the environment was to give knowledge to people; we passionately believe that the young Kenyan generation, strong of that knowledge, will be the best future leaders and advocates to achieve that goal. The Airkenya team has therefore embarked in building a school in the Mara Game reserve. To date, Emarti School has eight classrooms, a library, a teacher’s house and a solar powered water pump that supplies water to the school. Airkenya’s aim is to continue with this project and elevate the school to meet international standards.

As you read through the pages of the magazine, you will find an interesting article about the Ngorongoro crater, a unique feature in the northern Tanzanian safari circle, one of those bush experiences that you will not easily forget. Airkenya’s subsidiary Regional Air Services will provide you with flights from Arusha to Manyara airstrip where you will be picked up and driven to the crater, it’s a “must” experience which I highly recommend.

And further, if you are planning a safari in Uganda, you will find schedule timings for AeroLink, Airkenya’s Ugandan Airline subsidiary. AeroLink will provide you with convenient schedule flights to the Bwindi impenetrable forest, where you will able to track and see the Gorillas families, or enjoy a Victoria Nile cruise that will take you right up to the Murchison falls, an awesome sight, it sure lives up to the reputation of Uganda being the pearl of Africa!

Finally I take this opportunity to thank you for flying with Airkenya or any our subsidiary Airlines, it is a pleasure to have you on board, I wish you pleasant safari and looking forward to be your preferred Airline again!
