There is nothing quite like it. The absolute peace of immense vistas, muted colours and crisp fresh air...and the ever present promise of something wild.... as the balloons float you silently above it all "like a dream come true"
The Balloons lift off at dawn (0615) after coffee and a flight briefing.The balloons lift off just before sunrise when the breeze on the plains is still cold. The one hour flight will give you a birds eye view, of the best East Africa has to offer, in the magnificent setting of the Great Rift Valley. Once airborne, the balloons are blown by the prevailing winds across the broad landscape. Apart from the hiss of the burners, the flight above the Masai Mara plains is magically silent.

Sometimes the balloon will descend over the plains for a close up view of the wildlife; on other occasions, it rises to clear a tree canopy and rise over the reverine forest.
