Across the wild Safaris proudly operates prearranged sunrise balloon flights over the Masai Mara and Serengeti, Kenya and Tanzanian's premier destination. Taking in views of the Mara Valley, hills and bushland of the Serengeti
Our day will start at 5AM where one of our custom safari vehicles will collect you from your camp or lodge to drive you to the launch site. You will arrive at the launch site by 6AM, and can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while you watch the balloons being prepared for take-off. You will then meet your pilot, who will give you a safety briefing as well as explain what you can expect during your flight. There are basic toilet facilities available at the launch site.
You will then be loaded into your balloon basket for take-off just before sunrise, at about 6:30AM. The flight will last approximately one hour, depending on wind conditions, and the balloon will land between 7:30 and 7:45AM.
Upon landing, you can observe the complete deflation of the balloon envelope. Our vehicles will then transport you a short distance to breakfast.
Our breakfast is set up on the picturesque savannah plains of the Mara, typically under the shade of a single acacia tree. You will sit down to a full bush breakfast in the Kenyan style, complete with eggs-to-order, fresh juices, waiters in traditional Swahili attire, and, of course, champagne.
Mara is rich in flora and fauna the view just got better.
