Hot Air Ballooning on a Masai Mara Holiday
The Masai Mara is a stunning holiday destination, one of the most beautiful places on earth. One of the best ways to see the Masai Mara National Reserve is to book a hot air balloon safari. There are luxurious Masai Mara safari retreats, with lavish cabins and suites that provide you with the chance to sleep close to nature, and to experience everything that is great about safari in Africa. Through these outlets you can book hot air balloon trips that will change the way you see the world, and provide a daytrip that will last long in the memory.
A hot air balloon is pretty impressive wherever in the world you are, but above the Masai Mara is pretty special and unique – an experience that you’ll probably only ever have once in your life. When choosing your safari holiday, stay in one location for more than a few days to ensure that you get to explore and experience everything that there is to offer, from the game drives and the bush walks, to the visits to local villages and talks with local experts. Alongside that, this should also give you enough time to go on a hot air balloon ride, which usually must be pre-arranged before arriving at your luxury Masai Mara destination.
From high above the land you’ll spot predators, such as hyenas, cheetahs, and lions stalking their prey, see the ecosystem of the Mara in all its intricate glory and see animals feeding on different types of vegetation, drinking from different water supplies, and fighting for patches of land and for breeding rights. The eagles soar around you, and the fishes swim in the river below. It is a glorious way to be at one with nature, and to witness African wildlife in its natural state, without being interrupted by humans.
If you are even luckier, and your trip to the Masai Mara is between the months of July and October, you’ll have the chance to witness the Great Migration of huge herds of zebras and wildebeests. The hot air balloon safari lasts around an hour in most cases, allowing you to sample much of what the National Reserve has to offer, and with some packages you can experience a bush breakfast with a champagne toast, after you have landed and the crew has helped you out of the basket.
Choosing a holiday such as a Masai Mara experience is a joyous occasion. You’ll experience a holiday like no other, in luxurious suites that bring together the best of modern comfort and what nature has to offer in its simplistic brilliance. When you throw in the exhilaration of a hot air balloon safari across the Masai Mara National Reserve, you’ll honestly never have another day like it in your life. It is a completely unique experience that you’ll cherish, seeing the world from above, seeing nature at its most beautiful and at its most brutal, with scenic views that last to eternity.
