Governors‘ Camp Balloon Safaris Mara, Kenya
Governors‘ Camp Balloon Safaris
For the adventure of a lifetime we offer the unique experience of a Balloon Safari over the plains, forest
and river of the Masai Mara Game Reserve, famous for its abundance of wildlife throughout the year.
Lions, Elephants, Buffalo, Hippos, Crocodiles and prolific numbers of plains game are regularly seen, as are
the countless species of Birds both in flight and atop their lofty perches in the trees. The annual migration
of the Wildebeest from July to October is a sight that, viewed from the vantage point of a Balloon, is
never to be forgotten.
Departure is from Little Governors’ Camp, which has a perfect natural launch site and offers easy access
for the take off shortly after sunrise. The flight lasts about an hour, with ample opportunities for
photography and video filming from this unusual and often exciting perspective. After landing there is a
traditional champagne toast, followed by a breakfast cooked on the Balloon burners in the middle of the
rolling plains of the Masai Mara. It is another tradition with us that each passenger is presented with a
certificate signed by the pilot to commemorate the flight. The Balloon Safari ends with a leisurely game
drive which often allows you to return to the animals seen from the air before our vehicles return you to
There are no special requirements for participation in a Balloon Safari
