Balloon Safaris – Enjoy Wildlife And Scenery from a Vintage Point at Maasai Mara.
A hot air balloon safari should be on everyone’s bucket list! This is truly a fun and exciting way to see Africa’s landscapes and wildlife – especially the Big Five in the Maasai Mara.
This type of safari gives you a bird’s-eye-view of the reserve and allows you to capture aerial photographs that you normally would not be able to get.
Most of the balloon safaris in Kenya take place at the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. The safaris are done all year round.
How it Work : When you arrive, you will meet your pilot and witness the balloon being inflated and prepared for launch. After a thorough safety briefing and demonstration of boarding and landing position you board the balloon and lift off!
To celebrate this experience, you will be treated to a luxurious breakfast as you relax and soak in this magical moment. Afterwards, you will be awarded a certificate by the pilot certifying that you flew over the mara!
Generally, children under 7 years are not allowed. There is no upper age limit; however passengers must be reasonably mobile and fit to fly. Ballooning is also not suitable for pregnant ladies, people with mobility or health conditions.
A hat is recommended to protect your head from the radiant heat of the gas burners. Also, it can be cool in the early morning, but warm later, therefore carry a jacket or sweater. Don’t forget your camera and binoculars.
Timing : The adventure starts at dawn when you depart your lodge.
