Maasai mara Balloon Rides

Flying high up in the skies above the Masai Mara is the ultimate safari experience. The landscape below is a never-ending exciting mixture of riverine forests, sprawling savannahs, towering escarpments and rugged rivers. Against a backdrop of stunning sunrises, hot-air balloon flights in the Masai Mara give you a unique vantage point of the abundant wildlife living below. There’s really nothing quite like it, the view is unparalleled and the experience is unforgettable.

You will be picked up from your hotel/lodge at 5:00 am and driven where the balloon safari starts. Upon arrival you will be shown where to sit in the basket and the pilot starts the safari. You will be up and enjoying the aerial view of the Msai Mara reserve at sunrise. Then you will end the safari with a champagne bush breakfast. Later you will be taken back to your lodge or hotel. The balloon is approximately 1 hour and the breakfast approximately 1 hour.

Serengeti Balloon Rides

Serengeti Hot Air Balloon Safari occurs at first light, which infers a pre-day split wake up with steaming coffee and a nippy drive to the dispatch. The sentiment of enthusiasm swells through you as the exceptional balloons steadily load up with traveler, ascending clumsily over their secured cartons. Take-off is a riotous, uneven issue, which adds to the energy and improves the unexpected quietness when you reach cruising stature. The bustle of the warming flame mixes the quiet close by the sensitive whistle of air streams and coincidental ‘ooohs’ from your co-travelers.

Float in a Hot Air Balloon Safari over the famous Serengeti National Park with its enchanting scenery and vistas. You take off at dawn, rising as the sun rises and float in whichever direction the winds of the morning take us. Serengeti Balloon Safari starts at 06:30 a.m. When you arrive, you will meet your pilot and witness your balloon being inflated and prepared for launch. After a thorough safety briefing and demonstration of boarding and landing positions, you will board your balloon and take-off. The schedule has been designed to fit in with all standard safari itineraries visiting the Serengeti National Park, hence the return at 9:30 a.m. allow clients to continue with other planned activities for the rest of the day. Each balloon can carry up to 16 people per flight. Only two balloons fly each day, hence reservation is necessary. This gives you the opportunity to take photos and have a panoramic view of the mighty Serengeti Plain.
