The adventure begins just before dawn. Early morning is the ideal time to see wild animals on the plains of Mara. Departure is from a perfect natural launch site. Flames from the hot air balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. Before you know it, you’re off for a wildlife viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective.

There is no better feeling than this. The stillness and the silence as you float above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the Masai Mara. The flight lasts an hour or so. Drifting wherever the air currents take you, and with ample opportunities for photography and video filming. Nowhere in Africa is wildlife so abundant like the Masai Mara and for this reason it is regarded as a jewel in Kenya. You will also have an eagle eye view of the Masai Mara plains while riding in the hot air balloon.

After you land, a champagne breakfast in the bush adds to the buzz you will get from the early morning air and the sights and sounds that only an eagle ever sees.

Your 3 day Kenya Balloon Safari with Kichaka Tours and Travel will include park entrance fees, Guiding services, Full board accommodation and balloon ride charges.
