Balloon Safaris Maasai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara hot-air balloon safaris are offered over the Masai Mara National Park National Park and are an amazing way to experience the vastness of this iconic African park. Taking in stunning views from above, hot-air balloon safaris offer unparalleled photo opportunities and a unique perspective on Masai Mara’s sprawling landscape.  Most balloon safaris begin around 4 am, with pick-up from your accommodation and transport to your launch site.

By around 6:45 am you will be floating above the Masai Mara, breathing the crisp morning air, and spotting wildlife from a bird’s eye view. By 8:30 am, you will be seated at a truly out-of-Africa breakfast table, surrounded by the vastness of the Masai Mara, and eating a sumptuous breakfast feast with your flying party.
