Masai Mara Air Safari - Balloon safari
Hot air balloon flights take place in scenic beauty of Masai
Mara. A gentle ascent takes you well above tree-top level and
the whispering light breeze soothes the hearts as you enjoy a
panoramic view of wildlife drama unequalled anywhere in the
whole wide world. Thrilling drama of nature’s battle of
predators verses the preys, that is constantly displayed in the
savanna grassland from time immemorial.
You trip begins when you get your wake up call at your safari
lodge or tented camp in the early hours of the morning for a hot
cup of coffee or tea. Then you will be transferred to the point
of your Balloon safari take off.
At dawn we take off, rising as the sun rises and float in
whichever direction the winds of the morning take us. Your pilot
can precisely control the altitude of your balloon: sometimes
flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique
perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife
At other times he will ascend to see the enormity and
wonderful panorama of the Masai Mara. From time to time the
pilot must put more heat into the balloon with the powerful
whisper burners. In between these burns, there is silence apart
from the natural sounds below.
The flight is for about one hour depending on conditions, on
landing you celebrate in the traditional manner with champagne,
before sitting down to a full English breakfast prepared and
served in the bush in 'Out of Africa' style with bone china,
linen table cloths, King's silver etc.
After breakfast you receive your Balloon certificate and we
drive you back to the Lodge or camp with game viewing en-route.
