Unfenced and right in the heart of the action. Our camps are Located in some of the best and most precious Wildlife Locations in the world. We are a family with a colourful cast of characters that embodies the spirit of safari, while placing the care of the environment, community and conservation at the heart of everything we do.

  • An Incredible and professional staff that 's top priority was your safety. I was a little nervous since I had never been up in a balloon before but from the moment I arrived I felt at ease. Every step...  more »
  • The balloon safari is one of the most beautiful experiences you can have. It starts before sunrise, then you float low above the trees with magnificent views of the early mist in the Masai Mara. Sunrise is a dream. The perspective from above is indescribable, even many animals can be observed. Pilot Ray has many years of experience, you feel very safe with him and he always has funny sayings on his lips. Finally, there is a nice breakfast al fresco. The balloon flight takes about 1 hour, in the basket there is space for up to 16 passengers. A wonderful adventure!!!
