Balloon Safari – Masai Mara and Amboseli
Balloon Safari is one of the most popular ‘ add-on ‘ safari option with tourists on Safari to either the Masai Mara or Amboseli. The hot air balloons lift off just before sunrise when the breeze on the plains is still cold. Once airborne, the balloons are blown by the prevailing winds across the broad Masai Mara/Amboseli landscape. Apart from the hiss of the burners, the flight above the plains is magically silent. The pilot controls the height of the craft by regulating the flow of hot air into the balloon.
At the end of the flight, the passengers are treated to a complete champagne breakfast. The finishing touch to the flight is a game drive back to the lodge or camp, and the possibility of seeing the same wild animals that had been viewed while ballooning. . A flight certificate is issued on completion of the balloon safari.
The Masai Mara or Amboseli Hot air balloon safari can easily be incorporated into any Safari itinerary which includes at least one night in Masai Mara or Amboseli.
Pick ups from lodges/camps are done at no extra cost and the The balloon air drives operates daily.
