Masai Mara Hot Air Ballooning

The perfect location for your first safari holiday in Kenya

Spot the Big Five, meet warriors and enjoy wilderness luxury on your tailor made Masai Mara safari holiday.

The Masai Mara rightly deserves its place as one of Africa’s most popular safari destinations, and the experience it provides is exceptional for first-timers, families, and aficionados alike! Wildlife is abundant with the big five prevalent, and big cat sightings are particularly impressive.

Visit the Mara between July and October and you have every chance of witnessing the migration of wildebeest as they move between the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania, and the Mara in Kenya, in search of fresh pasture. Widely seen as the greatest show on Earth, the possibility of a ringside seat for a perilous river crossing draws thousands of visitors each. One of the most popular experiences on a luxury Masai Mara holiday is a hot air balloon safari. Floating silently over the plains at dawn is the perfect opportunity to get an idea of the vast scale of the reserve, before enjoying a bush breakfast on landing. A real bucket list activity.

There’s no denying that the popularity of the Masai Mara can become an issue with the number of vehicles in the main National Reserve, particularly during high season. The creation of private conservancies around the perimeter of the main reserve has somewhat eased this pressure and offers a more exclusive safari experience, away from the crowds. The beauty of staying in one of the private conservancies – Mara North, Naboisho and Olare Orok to name just three – is that you can expect the same prolific levels of wildlife but with stricter controls on visitor numbers. This is a great option not just for the enjoyment of your safari but for conservation efforts too.
