Balloon Safari, Maasai Mara

 

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, you’re off for a game-viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective.

The thing that amazes the most at the first time balloon Safari is the absolute stillness, the silence as you float above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the Maasai Mara.The sounds below drift clearly upwards: a Lion’s roar, Elephants crashing through the bush, Baboons perched in the tips of the trees startled and screeching to see something above them.

During your safari you drift wherever the air currents take you. If you’re lucky you’ll climb high above the Mara for the view of a lifetime. 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 it’s cooked before your eyes on the burners that minutes before kept you suspended in the air.

You will then be driven back to your hotel, lodge or camp with game viewing on-route.

 

This is one of the activities in Maasai Mara (option).
