Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserve
Balloon Safaris Ltd has been flying hot air balloons over the Masai Mara for more than 40 years. The Masai Mara is located in the South Western part of Kenya and spans 1510 square kilometres of National Game Reserve, consisting mainly of grassy plains and rolling hills. It is recognised as one of Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserves.
It is difficult to describe what the silence and stillness is like as you glide gracefully over the savannah. Depending upon the wind direction on the day you may drift along one of the rivers and see crocodiles and hippos. Every day is different, but typically we see a wide range of wildlife; in any one flight you are likely to see Giraffe, Elephant, Topi, various Gazelle, Zebra, Hyena and Ostrich. For the keen eyed you may also fly over Cheetah, Lion and sometimes spot the elusive Leopard or even Rhino. We cannot guarantee what you will see in any particular flight, every day is a new dawn.
