    Hi there, What would be the closest air strip to your lodge and can we get there directly from Masai Mara or do we have to fly through Nairobi Wilson ?
    2 March 2017|
    Answer
    Response from CanBritOntario | Reviewed this property |
    The airstrip is literally just that. A clear strip of ground with white rocks marking it out. It is about 10 minutes from the lodge. We flew out of there back to Nairobi.
