There’s always excitement in the Mara, dawn as the
animals wake, midday and the shimmering heat, or dusk,
perfect for hunting: a pride of lion stalking zebra, a herd
of elephant heading for the swamps, cheetah cubs playing in
the shade. Sights you won’t forget.
Our four-wheel-drive vehicles are built to our own
specifications. Cut-away roofs give you better views. Our
professional drivers will astonish you with what they find:
a tell-tale vulture will lead them to a hyena kill, a
warning cry from a mother wildebeest reveals a leopard
stalking through the grass.
Mara Balloon Safaris:
BORNE ON THE BREEZE ACROSS THE GREAT PLAINS The adventure
begins just before dawn. Flames from the balloon burners
light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. The
first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies and
the balloon fills then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath
the rainbow-colored canopy, you’re off for a game-viewing
adventure with an entirely different perspective. The thing
that amazes most first-time balloonists is the absolute
stillness, the silence as you float above the plains, the
forest and the rivers of the Masai Mara. And if you’ve flown
elsewhere, you’ve seen nothing like this. The sounds below
drift clearly upwards: a lion’s roar, elephants crashing
through the bush, baboons perched in the tips of the trees
startled and screeching to see something above them.
For an hour or so you drift wherever the air currents
take you. If you’re lucky you’ll climb high above the Mara
for the view of a lifetime. Then your balloon safari
finishes with a flourish. In the time honored tradition of
balloon flights the world over you toast your return to
earth with a champagne breakfast. The difference this
breakfast happens in the bush, wherever you land, and it’s
cooked before your eyes on the burners that minutes before
kept you suspended in the air.
