Many would agree that seeing Africa’s Big 5 and other wonderful wildlife is an opportunity of a lifetime. But imagine being able to tower above the herds of wildebeest or the elegant giraffes and look down on them from above.
A balloon safari is definitely one of the best ways to experience the magic of Africa’s wildlife, especially if you’re heading to the Mara Region where zebras and antelope run a few hundred meters below you – an adventure that belongs at the top of your bucket list! Here’s a sneak peek of the magic that awaits to get you excited:
Combine the feeling of weightlessness, the sense of space and freedom, incredible panoramic views, and endless possibility. There is no better, more beautiful and overwhelming way to start or end your day than drifting over the endless plains of the Serengeti, or floating above the absolute abundance of the Masai Mara, where you will be carried over game path after game path.
If this hasn’t caught your attention yet, here are our top five reasons to book your balloon safari today:
- See a legendary sunrise or sunset you will never forget!
- You have an uninterrupted aerial view of the wildlife at their most active.
- Unimaginable scenes of the Great Migration.
- Our balloon safari partners are well-known and the best in the business. Every detail is thought of including your safety and ensuring a quiet drift above the land.
- Hot air ballooning can take you where safari vehicles can’t.
The bush tells a much more complete story from the sky. This crisscross maze of winding routes will lead you to herds of wildebeest, zebra, elephants, lions, and even tiny scrub hares.
Up and down you go… dropping in to check on the hippos and the crocodiles in the rivers. A few big, wide-mouthed, hippo yawns will welcome you, the Fish Eagle’s morning calls will greet you, and the gurgling of the rapids below will relax you. With photo opportunities aplenty, the trip always seems to go by far too quickly and you will wish that you could be up there, in paradise, forever.
After your magic carpet ride over the exquisite African bushveld, you will be treated to a delicious 5-star Champagne Breakfast fit for a king, laid out impeccably, and set up in the middle of nowhere. Absolute bliss!
