Seeking Cessna 206 Pilot In Kenya

Cessna 206Campi Ya Kanzi is seeking a Pilot to lead their flightseeing and airport transfer business in Kenya. Minimum pilot qualifications are 1000 hours total time. Time in type preferred. 2 year contract position. All room and board paid.

In 2010 my wife and I took our honeymoon to the most amazing place I have ever been. After a long flight we landed in Nairobi Kenya where we stayed for less than an hour. We transferred from the international airport to an executive airport where we boarded a Cessna 206 painted as a Giraffe for a short 45 minute flight to the Chyulu Hills, specifically Campi Ya Kanzi. This would become the most exhilarating, educational, touching and romantic vacation of my life.

Campi Ya Kanzi is operated by the owners Luca and Antonella with a staff of 65 employees from the local Maasai community. Luca and Antonella created Campi Ya Kanzi in 1996 and have made it their home ever since.

What makes Campi Ya Kanzi so special is multi faceted. First it is a true eco tourism facility. Water comes from water cropping, electricity from photovoltaic panels, hot water from solar heaters helping to create as little impact on the land as possible. Second, most lodges are in national parks and have an average 1 occupancy per 76 acres of land. Campi Ya Kanzi is on a group ranch and has an occupancy of 1 guest per 17,500 acres. Campi Ya Kanzi only has occupancy for 16 guests making a very personal experience their specialty. Finally, there is no other safari like it in Kenya. In the national parks there are so many people and little white vans that the animals are accustomed to them. The safari consists of herds of little vans running around encircling the animals so most of your photos will have a little white van in the background. Plus, you can not get out of the van anywhere in the national park. After a few days you really want to get out and interact with the land. Campi Ya Kanzi is a 400 square mile group ranch, you can hike it all if you have the time. Plus the animals are in their natural environment, you might have to work a little to find a heard of elephants but when you do you will feel successful in your safari.
