Balloon Safari



A hot air balloon safari over Masai Mara National Reserve is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! We highly recommend that adventurous guests plan to stay at the reserve for at least three to four days to allow time for this activity.


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 hot air balloon flights need to be pre-arranged by your Evacay Africa safari agent to ensure guaranteed availability due to the limited space of only 16 passengers in a balloon.


The balloons can accommodate adults and children, with some limitations. Children must be at least four years old and must be accommodation by a parent or guardian.

Our custom 4X4 safari vehicles will pick you from your camp or lodge between 0400-0530AM and drive you to the launch site, to arrive by 0600AM. Depending on the weather conditions, you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while you watch the balloons being prepared for take-off. Your pilot will give a safety briefing as well as explain what you can expect during the flight. The hot air balloon safari tours in Kenya lift off at dawn (06:00) after coffee and a safety flight briefing from your pilot as explain what you can expect during the flight. The one hour flight will give you a bird’s eye view of the best East Africa has to offer in the magnificent setting of the Great Rift Valley. What amazes most first-time balloonists is the absolute stillness: the silence as you float above the plains, the forest and the rivers of the Masai Mara After you land, a champagne breakfast (Complete with sparkling wine) in the bush adds to the buzz you will get from the early morning air and the sights and sounds that only an eagle ever sees. Early morning is the ideal time to see wild animals on the plains, and in the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya it is an experience you will never forget
