If you only have a few days to break away from everyday life to be pampered and thrilled in one of the most beautiful wildlife areas in Kenya, this luxurious tour is for you.

After jetting into Nairobi, you will immediately be whisked to Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp where you will be treated to dawn and dusk game drives to seek out the Big 5, nature walks with Maasai guides and - perhaps the highlight of a mini-break like this - a hot-air balloon safari in which you float serenely above the Masai Mara and herds of elephant, zebra and buffalo. Between August and October look out for masses of wildebeest as they seek out fresh grazing during the Great Migration.

Perfect for discerning safari-goers, honeymooners and avid photographers (balloon safaris allow an unrivalled aerial perspective of sights such as crocodiles basking on the banks of the might Mara River), this holiday is an idyllic introduction into a slice of the world-renowned Masai Mara National Park.

Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive in the Masai Mara

On your arrival in Nairobi, you are transferred to Wilson Airport for a flight to the airstrip of the exclusive Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp. Enjoy lunch at camp before meeting your guide for high tea and setting out on a late afternoon game drive on the rolling hills and vast plains of the Masai Mara.

The Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most spectacular and most popular game reserves in Kenya. The concentration of game in the Mara during the mass migration is incredible, and this is one of the areas where you are likely to see all of the Big 5: buffalo, elephant, rhino, lion and leopard.

Day 2-3

Float above the Mara

Enjoy twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, night drives on the camp's wilderness concession, guided nature walks with a Maasai naturalist, and sundowners at a secret location that boasts spectacular views across the Mara.

One morning during your stay, wake early and embark on an hour-long balloon safari over the vast plains of the Masai Mara. The dawn scenery from the balloon is breathtaking as you float above the diverse habitats of the reserve, which include the mighty Mara River, swamps and forests. On landing, you enjoy a delicious champagne breakfast on the plains as the sun rises in the sky for another beautiful day in Africa.

Day 4

Leave the Mara

After a wholesome breakfast, bid farewell to the Mara as you drive to Kichwa Airstrip for a scheduled flight to Nairobi's Wilson Airport. On your arrival, transfer to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your onward flight home, the memories, sights and sounds of the past few days still fresh in your mind.
