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 below.
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. 9:30 am Arrive at the lodge/camp ready to continue your day's activities.
