Balloon Safari

Seeing nature at its best from a bird’s perspective

There is nothing like flying high above the magnificent African Savannah in a Hot Air Balloon. Seeing nature at its best from a bird’s perspective is unimaginable, until you’ve actually tried it!

The thrilling adventure begins as the first pink rays of light are seen on the sky. As the silent inflation system fills the balloon with hot air, the captain will ask you to climb into the basket, suspended below the balloon.

Your anxiety will be replaced with a rush of adrenaline and excitement as the balloon silently lifts from the ground and the Masai Mara will fall away under your feet and a whole new and amazing view appears with herds of elephants tottering beneath you. After an hour of fascinating slow balloon cruising, you will land and a lavish champagne breakfast set amidst the bush awaits you. This is a truly magical and unforgettable safari experience.
