An amazing experience flying over one of the best preserved areas of the planet. Our equipment is what's best on the market in security matter, and our pilots have extensive flight experience in the "Mara Triangle." At the end of the flight join us at the "coffee savanna," where our chefs prepare a delicious meal, accompanied by a toast with champagne ... You deserve it!

Breathtaking view of Masai Mara, opportunity for incredible wildlife photos, ended with "out of Africa" breakfast in the bush. It's a must while in Mara.

A fantastic and relaxing way to see the Masai Mara. We had to wake up very early, but it was worth it for the amazing views and unique way to watch the sunrise. The team set up a brilliant breakfast for us afterwards, and it...More

After 3 days of being perched on a land rover and being tossed from side to side this was the best way to experience the Mara. You fly 20 feet or 500 feet from the ground. We were lucky with wind and so journeyed over...More

Getting to and around Masai Mara means riding over the bumpiest roads on earth, so taking an hour to glide smoothly above the park and take in the vistas from above is true serenity. The pilots raise the balloons above treetops but then skim the...More
