About Skyship Co. Balloon Safaris
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!

Skyship ran a really professional operation. Our pilot was excellent, explaining a lot about hot air ballooning as well as the Masai Mara. Breakfast was first class, with a lovely setting, great array of food including cooked to order hot stuff.
