Kenya’s Hot Air Ballooning One of a Kind
Witnessing nature and beautiful animals from the air is a perfect experience waiting for you!
Taking a safari in Kenya on the ground is spectacular.
Nothing quite beats being face to face with some nature’s most incredible beasts. But what if there was another way? How about viewing the animals from the air? Don’t worry, we are not suggesting to skydive from a perfectly good airplane into a herd of rushing rhinos. Although if you’re a daredevil it could work!
For those less willing to risk your lives in the name of awesome stories to tell, you could look into hot air ballooning. Unlike Jules Verne, you can’t just simply ride around the world in 80 days, you’ll need to have a Kenya visa to drop in. That is where we come in. We’ll be sure to get you up in the air in no time.
Hot air ballooning adventures are becoming more and more popular throughout the world as each tour gives visitors a completely unique experience and perspective. If you have already done a safari on the ground, you could opt for a different trip or see the animals from a larger scope. Imagine witnessing the sunrise, with light rays stretching out and gripping every rock, tree and crevice as far as the eye can see.
One opportunity is offered through Gamewatchers Safaris. The most popular package involves a sunrise option. Before flying up, up and away, have a warm cup of coffee and light breakfast. Once in the basket, get ready to be hauled up into the troposphere! Early morning is the prime time for viewing animals as most greet the day and roam when the sunlight bounces off the ground. These experiences are done over the Masai Mara Reserve and gives such a gorgeous landscape, you will have a tough time distinguishing between reality and if it’s a painting. Once back on land, you will be offered a champagne toast to celebrate nature’s beauty.
There are quite a few opportunities to photograph while in the air. It’s only for an hour so be sure to take a few good ones and then relax. You’ll remember more by simply taking in the sights with all your senses. Breathe in the fresh air and listen closely. You may hear the sounds of the wild. Both of those cannot be captures with any camera. Have a blast and enjoy!
