AT LEAST FOUR people have died after a plane carrying tourists crashed in Kenya’s Masai Mara national park earlier today.

Two pilots and two German tourists have been confirmed dead, and a further three people have been described as seriously injured, reports NBC World News.

The aircraft, which was carrying 11 passengers, was reportedly owned by Mombasa Air Safari. Propeller planes are often used to take tourists to the park, the BBC reports.

The plans crashed soon after taking off from Ngerede air strip at around noon.
