Hot Air balloon ride at Lake Elementaita


Hot Air Balloon at Lake Elementaita Kenya

(Lake Elementaita is 25 minutes after Naivasha & 30 minutes before Nakuru)

Hot Air balloon ride at Lake Elementaita in Kenya are operated by GoBallooning Kenya - the only company operating the balloon in Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha and Elementaita area. The ride starts in the cool crisp air before sunrise, so that you can catch the rays when already air-borne- fantastic!


It takes off from Soysambu ranch, and is cheaper than the Masai Mara balloon safari. The cost may seem prohibitive until you discover just what is included in the package, plus once you're done with the experience you'll be convinced it was worth every penny.


Over an hour's ride, it takes you upto 4,000metres above sea level, to heights from which you may easily view lakes Nakuru, Naivasha and Elementaita- all at once, plus Mt. Kenya, Hell's Gate National Park, and the 'Sleeping Masai Warrior' hill! Those afraid of heights- forget your phobia because the ride is so smooth you won't believe how much you would have missed out on!


Hot Air balloon ride at Lake Elementaita gives you a chance to see Lake Elementaita from an entirely different angle, with its flamingos taking off en masse in pink streaks, the only sound being the ruffle of their wings.


The lake is bordered on one side by a wildlife sanctuary, so go on an 'airy' game drive and watch the giraffes, buffaloes and other animals running away from this strange object floating high above them.


And back on the ground, a bush breakfast awaits- from sparkling wine to hot and cold courses, eaten at leisure- after all, you paid for it! And to top it all, GoBallooning give you a giveaway package to remember your 'voyage through diversity and time'.

Adult Price: 450 US Dollars

Children Price (3 to 11 Years): 300 US Dollars

Great Rift Valley in KenyaRift Valley in Kenya - Lake Nakuru

Great Rift Valley in Kenya

Great Rift Valley in Kenya

"The Great Rift Valley is one of the most awe-inspiring sights on earth, but the best way to see the rift is from above. It will literally give you a birds eye view of the valley as you join flocks of flamingo soaring high across lakes, volcanoes and forest. Kenya's wide-open spaces and 'big sky' country make this fantastic ballooning country.


The geographic wonders of the Great Rift Valley offer a spectacular new alternative. Born of a major shift beneath the Earths surface over 35 million years ago, the massive Rift valley is one of natural wonders of the world, easily visible from outer space.


The valley stretches 6000 km's from Jordan to Mozambique, with its width varying from between 30 to 100 kilometers. The valley is at its most spectacular in Kenya, its floor studded with dormant volcanoes and fresh water and soda lakes, attracting a wide range of big game and bird life.


When exploring the rift, it is difficult to gain a clear perspective of the scale and sheer size of the valley, which is where a balloon comes in handy. Rising from the floor, you can appreciate the entire Rift, both in its vast entirety and the many natural elements and ecosystems that bring the valley to life.
