What could be better than drifting silently over the captivating Masai Mara in a hot air balloon? This is truly an experience of a lifetime!

The calm and quiet nature of the hot air balloon enables its passengers to view the undisturbed wildlife from a safe distance. Lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalos are frequently seen along with many other animals.

The flight

The hot air balloons take flight from their base close to the Great Mara River. Sunrise flights ensure the best game-viewing and typically the balloons are launched between 6am and 6.30am

Once airborne, the flight trail exhibits the diverse habitats of the Masai Mara Reserve with views over the great Mara River, forests, swamps and savannahs.

Back on land, a champagne breakfast (rated the best in the Masai Mara!) is served. Enjoy a comprehensive breakfast menu that includes everything from a full English breakfast to American waffles in the magnificent open plains of the Masai Mara.

After breakfast, guests are taken on an exciting game drive back to their lodges and camps.
