We offer professional Maasai Mara Balloon Safaris In Kenya. Maasai Mara can experience the rare excitement of game viewing from a hot air balloon. In the crisp air of dawn, the passengers drink coffee while the crew partially inflates the balloon with enormous fans.
The gas burners are then ignited and the balloon fills with hot air slowly raising the baskets. Before departing, finalized checks are made, and the passengers then get into the balloon basket for a take-off, over the game-filled plains and riverine forest of the Maasai mara game reserve.
The balloon lift off just before sunrise when the breeze on the plains is still cold, it is blown by the prevailing winds across the broad landscape. Apart from the hiss of the burners, the flight above the Mara plains is magically silent. You will be woken up early in the morning and then transferred by our guide to the starting point of this exciting ride.
The pilot controls the height of the craft by regulating the flow of hot air into the balloon. Sometimes the balloon will descend over the plains for a closer view of the wildlife and on other occasions, it rises to clear a tree canopy and rise over the riverine forest.
Total duration time 5 to 6 hours.
Hot air balloon safari over the game filled plains of Maasai mara takes around five to six hours from the start to the time you will be driven back to the hotel.
