This is a day of floating in a balloon above the plains gives you a totally different view of Masai Mara. You won’t only see the animals on the land, but also the birds roosting in the tops of trees and fly in the sky, ultimate rivers, mountains, and many other remarkable views. Floating away on a air balloon is one of those experiences you’ll talk about for years to come and we will provide you the same by rendering all facilities and security. This peaceful yet exhilarating flight is the way to see the world in a different manner and will be an experience you never forget.

You will require waking up early so that you get ready for perfect ballooning safaris in Kenya before the sun rises completely. This is the time when the winds are gentle, the sky is clear, creating a perfect ballooning condition. We will introduce you to the balloon pilot, and watch balloon preparation for take-off, which will be hilarious. Also, your pilot will explain the safety procedures and other information, so that your journey becomes safe and the best. Balloon Safaris begin in the still air at sunrise, where you will witness the beauty of the sunrise, breathtaking views of the plains, forests, and The Mara River, and various animals silently.

After landing, there is a traditional champagne toast followed by breakfast cooked on the balloon burners in the middle of the rolling plains. You will never forget such an amazing breakfast in the heart of the bush, surrounded by grazing animals, is a feeling that you are in another world. We will serve you with a glass of champagne while the table is laid and good food is cooked for you. You won’t enjoy your breakfast, but will love watching the birds soar overhead is a magical experience After breakfast hop into your safari vehicle and enjoy a game drive back to camp. When you are back in your luxury camp, relax and soak yourself in the beauty of this amazing world. From your camp, you can easily watch the wildlife who come into our unfenced grounds, capture them in your cameras, and enjoy this place to the fullest by doing anything you want.

This is a time when you will find the lions, cheetahs, leopards, and other animals who hunt in the dawn hours before the day actually starts. After 1 or 2 hours of safari, you’ll return to the camp for a healthy breakfast.
