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!

We had an amazing balloon ride with Captain Gilbert on 29 August. Skyship is the best option and choice if you want to do a Mara Balloon Ride. They are the only one to fly in the northernmost part of the triangle with spectacular scenery....More

As a family of 6 adults we fitted perfectly into Capt. Eduardo's Skyship balloon basket. We had one very nervous and a couple of not quite so nervous first time flyers, but they loved the whole experience. A dawn lift off with a spectacular sunrise...More

My son does not like flying and I was anxious about his reaction to this - but he smiled all the way! It really is a wonderful way to see the game and take in the sun rise. The company is safety conscious and the...More

This was an activity I wanted to do while my husband is afraid of heights. He was reassured that the basket actually comes up pretty high. I'm 5' and I swear it was at my chest area. Understanding that the experience over the Mara is...More
