The scenery of the Masai Mara from a hot air balloon is remarkable owing to its spectacular and breath-taking nature, the ultimate safari experience. The balloon flight transports you over the diverse habitats of the Masai Mara Reserve: the great Mara River, swamps, forests, wildlife and the African Savannah. The gentle and silent nature of the balloon flight allows passengers to view the wildlife from a comfortable distance. The big five: lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo can be frequently seen, as well as other animals such as hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, birds and much more.

This unique excursion starts early in the morning with a transfer to the launch site. Here you are briefed by the balloon crew and can watch the huge burners light up the darkness as the balloons are filled. Once you take flight, you soar in the company of the rising sun and exotic birds, high above the watchful eyes of easily alarmed wildlife. As you glide gently above the treetops you have a rare opportunity to get a bird’s-eye view of miles of rolling plains and herds of animals that call the Masai Mara home. The flight itself lasts approximately 45-60 minutes (depending on the wind) before you touch down on the plains of the Masai Mara.

In the time-honoured tradition of balloon flights all over the world, your return to earth is toasted with a champagne breakfast. Enjoy a game drive enroute back to camp where you’ll meet up with your fellow safari travellers to continue game viewing activities for the day.

Several companies in the Masai Mara offer balloon safaris and usually cater to a few lodges in the area that the balloon company operates from. Balloons range in size from large sixteen-passenger balloons to small eight-passenger balloons.
