We were able to see the River from the Balloon Safari and wow what a view! This river is incredible and to see the animals in their natural habitat was truly breathtaking. Definitely recommend this if you get the chance. A MUST SEE!!!! The Zebra, Wildebeest, and the Rhinos. WOW

A must see spectacle. The thousands upon thousands of wildebeest and zebra make for a wonderful visual feast as you scan the vast open plains of the maasai mara.

we did not get to see the great migration...safari guide showed us the spots where animals usually migrate the rough terrain formation but we were in Mara River after the migration so not much to see except for numbers of Hippos basking in the sun after rains.

we saw a couple of wildebeast crossings within a short space of time. Yes it was certainly crowded and 'wacky races' ensued to gain the best advantage point but in my view all added to the experience. We wouldn't have missed it for the world although a long day without toilet facilities (just have to brave the al fresco method if you're desparate!). Big thanks to our excellent driver, Joseph, who bagged great viewing opportunities for us.
