MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE
This is the ultimate way to view wildlife in Africa. You will be woken before dawn and then driven to a remote location. Taking off as the sun rises, you will drift quietly above plains, rivers and forests while gazing at spectacular scenery and with luck, take some incredible photographs. The flight is approximately one hour and gives a ‘birds- eye’ experience to game watching which many find to be the climax of their
safari. On landing in the middle of the bush there will be a full champagne bush style breakfast set up, with a table decked in silver cutlery, fresh Kenyan coffee, tea and fruits. It is a truly magical experience.
EARLY MORNING DEPARTS BEFORE 0500
Pre-dawn transfer to the balloon staging site. After a pre-flight briefing by the pilot, the crew inflates the balloon and at sunrise, the flight begins. Lasting about 50 minutes, the balloon silently glides over the wildlife, sometimes at tree top level and sometimes higher up to better see the entire ecosystem. Upon landing, in the tradition of balloonists through the centuries, a champagne breakfast is served in the heart of the bush! After breakfast, there is a transfer to rejoin the safari group.
