Share This Safari

Balloon Safaris at Governor'sCamp, Masai Mara;  adventure begins just before dawn. Departure is from a perfect natural launch site behind Little Governor's Camp, and flames from the hot air balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies as the hot air balloon fills, then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the rainbow-colored canopy, you are off for a game-viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective. 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. Even if you've flown elsewhere, this is a unique experience. Balloon Safari flights lasts an hour or so, drifting wherever the air currents take you, and with ample opportunities for photography and video filming. Then your Kenyan Hot Air Balloon Safari finishes with a flourish. In the time honored tradition of balloon flights the world over, you toast your return to earth with a champagne breakfast, cooked wherever you land. The Balloon Safari ends with some leisurely game viewing on the way back to Camp. It is a tradition of Governor's that each passenger is presented with a certificate signed by the pilot to commemorate the flight.
