Hot Air Balloon ride at Leleshwa Camp in Masai Mara National Reserve we offer you the opportunity to rise above the world on an enthralling Hot Air Balloon across the rolling grassland plains of the Reserve’s untamed vastness.
Your Masai Mara Balloon Ride begins in the early of the morning. You will depart camp with your guide and tracker who will escort you to the launch site and follow the balloon to the landing site.
A gentle ascent takes you well above it all and the whispering wind breeze is soothing as you enjoy an excellent view of Savanna grassland as well as the panoramic view of wildlife drama unequaled anywhere in the whole wide world.
Suspended in a basket you’re off to experience the richest game-viewing safari with an entirely different perspective.
Hot Air Balloon rides over the Masai Mara plains is a unique experience and you are likely to be be amazed by absolute stillness: the silence as you float above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the Masai Mara plains.
Incidentally, Hot air balloon rides are not instant adrenaline sport but more of a spiritual upliftment experience added to the romantic and evocative feeling as you drift gracefully over vast expanse of Masai Mara wilderness teeming with wildlife.
The flight lasts an hour or so, drifting wherever the air currents take you. Balloon rides are a rare opportunity for photographers as they provide an elevation for photography and video filming.
After a champagne breakfast enjoyed with your fellow passengers, you retreat to the privacy of your own vehicle and can continue on a full day game drive with a picnic lunch before returning to camp.
Please note that there is a supplementary charge for the balloon ride and this should be booked in advance as passenger space is limited.
