When it comes to balloon safari destinations, we recommend making the most of the bird's eye view by booking your trip in one of Africa’s original and most iconic safari destinations: the Masai Mara in Kenya and the Serengeti in Tanzania.

Both destinations deliver perfectly breathtaking vistas, but our favourite balloon experience is the Kenya Fly in Masai Mara Balloon Safari, a 4-day Kenya balloon safari excursion. This active vacation combines thrilling land-based game viewing on the savannah in traditional safari vehicles with guided nature walks with Maasai warriors, crowning your exploration of the Mara with a hot air balloon flight. This safari is an ideal choice if you want to witness the Great Migration (between July and November).
