The scenery from a hot air balloon is unforgettable due to its spectacular and breathtaking nature; the ultimate safari experience. The balloon flight takes you over the diverse habitats of the Masai Mara Reserve; the great Mara River, swamps, forests, wildlife and the African Savannah. The diversity of our flight trail enables passengers to experience a unique opportunity to be a part of the Masai Mara from the air.
The gentle and silent nature of the balloon flight allows the passengers to view the wildlife from a comfortable distance. The big five; the lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo can be seen frequently along with other animals such as hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, birds and many more.
The hot air balloons are launched at our site not far from the Great Mara River; about ten minutes drive from the Kichwa Tembo Camp. The balloon flight is launched between 6:00 and 6:30am (sunrise). The balloon travels 15 to 25 kilometers depending on wind conditions.
Upon landing, a champagne breakfast is served in the open plains of the Masai Mara. Once breakfast is over the passengers are taken back to their lodges and camps en route via a game drive.
Often referred to as the 8th wonder of the world, the Masai Mara is a place that has to be visited. Viewing it from above ground level is an experience of a lifetime, that will truly be with you forever. It is a rare and precious adventure never to be forgotten.
