Masai Mara and Amboseli Kenya Balloon Safaris

Balloon safaris in Kenya are offered in the Masai Mara National Reserve and Amboseli National Park.

Balloon safari in Masai Mara - Kenya

The balloon safari adventure begins just before dawn. Flames from the balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies and the balloon fills then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the rainbow-colored canopy, youíre off for a game-viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective.

The thing that amazes most first-time balloon Safari articipants is the absolute stillness, the silence as you float above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the Masai Mara . And if youíve flown elsewhere, youíve seen nothing like this. The sounds below drift clearly upwards: a lionís roar, elephants crashing through the bush, baboons perched in the tips of the trees startled and screeching to see something above them.

For an hour or so you drift wherever the air currents take you. If youíre lucky youíll climb high above the Mara for the view of a lifetime. Then your balloon safari finishes with a flourish. In the time honored tradition of balloon flights the world over you toast your return to earth with a champagne breakfast. The difference this breakfast happens in the bush, wherever you land, and itís cooked before your eyes on the burners that minutes before kept you suspended in the air. Mara Balloon Safaris pioneered game-viewing by hot-air balloon in Africa.

Balloon safari can also be done in Amboseli affording the safari participants an amazing view of Mount Kilimanjaro and the plains
