Scenic Hot Air Balloon Flight Masai Mara - Kenya

A hot air balloon flight over the Masai Mara is a truly special experience and a fantastic add-on to your Kenya Safari. This is not a cheap experience, but worth every dollar. Normally about 12 to 14 people enter the balloon’s basket. Guests are advised to wear warm clothing and bring along a camera and a notebook to list the animals and other attractive sites they will see.

Take off at dawn and float with the morning winds. This low altitude flight offers great photographic opportunities and a birds eye-view of the wildlife, expansive plains, forests and rivers below.

The Masai Mara hot air balloon ride provides a unique tranquility that cannot be experienced elsewhere. See the sky change colors as the sun rises.  During your hour flight you will experience an aerial view of the wildlife spectacle unfolding below as you float with the morning breeze. This is the magic of a Masai Mara balloon ride.
