Tour Details

Hot air balloon & the Great Migration. Combining a hot air balloon ride with witnessing the Great Migration in Kenya is an unforgettable experience.

Soaring above the Masai Mara

Gently drift across the vast plains of the Masai Mara National Reserve in a hot air balloon and witness the Great Wildebeest Migration from a unique perspective. This breathtaking spectacle unfolds beneath you, with seemingly endless herds of wildebeest, zebra, and other animals embarking on their annual journey.

Prime Time and Location

The migration season in Kenya typically occurs between July and October. For the best chance to witness the herds from a balloon, plan your safari during this period in the Masai Mara National Reserve. This coincides with the migration of large herds from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park.

Witnessing Nature’s Spectacle

A hot air balloon safari offers more than just a bird’s-eye view:

Witness the scale: Gain a true appreciation for the vast number of animals involved in this natural wonder.
Animal behavior: Observe predators like lions and cheetahs stalking prey, or witness the wildebeest face the perilous challenge of crossing rivers.
Panoramic vistas: Marvel at the breathtaking landscapes of the Masai Mara, encompassing vast plains, woodlands, and the dramatic African scenery.

Additional details:

Flight duration: Expect a one-hour ride.
Passenger capacity: Limited number of passengers ensures a personalized experience.
Safety: Choose a company with experienced pilots and a strong safety record.

Witnessing the Great Migration from a hot air balloon in Kenya is a truly remarkable experience. It’s a chance to witness the power and wonder of nature from a unique and unforgettable perspective.

If you  visit the Masai Mara between the months of July and October, you will have a chance catching the ‘Great Migration’ while flying above the African plains. There’s nothing quite like this phenomenon of migrating herds of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles.

Flying above the herds in a hot air balloon is one of the best ways to grasp the enormity of what’s taking place. Other exciting sights to behold include watching predators such as lions hunting their prey, spotting leopards perched up high in trees and seeing active hyena dens. Every hot air balloon flight brings with it the opportunity to see new and exciting sights below. Your pilot will make sure to fly lower at times to allow for the best possible pictures to be taken.
