Afternoon Game Drive & Masai Village Visit

  • Approximate Cost: $79 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: TBD
  • Location: Amboseli National Park, Kenya
  • When: TBD

Head out on an afternoon game drive in Amboseli National Park, led by expert guides. Their knowledge and experience will come into play when spotting the elusive wildlife that calls this park home.

Later, stop at a Maasai village and hear how, despite western influences, the traditional mud-hut way of life remains intact here. Robed in red, with their spears and rungu (knobkerrie) always in hand, the Maasai warriors will perform their traditional jumping dance, revealing how high they can leap. This enlightening experience will reveal just how different the Maasai existence is to your own.

Join an optional bucket-list opportunity when you rise before dawn and take flight in a hot air balloon, floating effortlessly over the Serengeti at the whim of the wind. Your skilled pilot will have you sky high one moment and skimming the tree tops the next, all the while spotting game from above. Within seconds of landing, the crew following your progress in support vehicles will carve a meadow in the grass and set up tables for a scrumptious champagne breakfast. This extraordinary experience is one that should not be missed.

Masai Mara Balloon Safari with Champagne Breakfast

  • Approximate Cost: $550 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 4 - 5 hours
  • Location: Masai Mara National Park, Kenya
  • When: Early morning tour

Enhance your African safari even further by embarking on the hot air balloon ride of a lifetime. This one-hour flight, starting early in the morning, will give you a bird’s-eye view of the magnificent setting of the Great Rift Valley, the best east Africa has to offer, just as the sun begins the rise. After landing, a champagne breakfast in the bush adds to the buzz you’ll get from the early morning air and the sense of serenity that comes from drifting silently above one of the world’s most beautiful wildernesses. A morning game drive back to your lodge offers an excellent opportunity for additional wildlife viewing, as early morning is the ideal time to see wild animals on the plains.
