Enjoy an exhilarating Masai Mara balloon safari with champagne breakfast (weather permitting) as part of your Kenya and Tanzania safari. This hot-air balloon ride will be the highlight of any Kenya safari! This unique excursion starts early in the morning with a transfer to the launch site, where you are briefed by the balloon crew and watch the huge burners light up the darkness as they fill the balloons. Once you take flight, soar in the company of the rising sun and exotic birds, high above the watchful eyes of easily alarmed wildlife. This is a rare opportunity to get a bird’s-eye-view of miles of rolling plains and the herds of animals that call it home and stalk its corners as you glide gently above the treetops. The flight itself lasts approximately 45-60 minutes before you touch down in the wilds of the Masai Mara.
Sit down for a sumptuous full champagne breakfast in the bush. The conversation at breakfast is always lively. Your breakfast, which consists of fresh fruit and your choice of eggs, bacon, sausage, tea or coffee, and of course, champagne, is prepared and served right in the midst of the African bush. Enjoy a game drive en route back to camp where you’ll regale your fellow East Africa safari travelers with accounts of your hot-air balloon adventure safari. Advance booking is highly recommended as the balloon space fills up fast. Guests who wait too long to book are often disappointed to find that there is no space left.
NOTE: A balloon safari is an amazing and exciting experience. However, a balloon safari also requires a reasonable level of physical fitness to enjoy safely. Guest safety is of paramount importance.
