Optional Activity 1: Early morning balloon ride. You will be dropped off at the takeoff site by the
balloon company and picked up from your landing site by our safari driver.
Balloon safaris are a romantic and evocative way of experiencing the wilderness of East Africa, as you
gracefully and silently fly over the plains teeming with herds of wildlife in the early morning. Typically, a
balloon safari begins at break of dawn, about 6 am, and lasts for around 1 hour, during which you will fly
over parts of the vast Masai Mara plain, seeing the magnificent wildlife below, spread over several
square kilometers of the reserve. Balloon flights are available daily in Masai Mara and take off from
designated sites where the disturbance to animals is kept to a minimum. The flight is followed by a
champagne breakfast "in the bush", with a well laid out seating arrangement and waiters on hand, to
give you a fitting final to your memorable flight in the wild . Then you will start a game drive again with
our driver guide. Picnic lunch offers wonderful scenery. The lunch box is packed by the hotel you stay.
After lunch you will continue with game drive. The cost is USD450 per adult.
Optional Activity 2: In the afternoon game drive, you can visit a village of the Masai people to witness
the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. A glimpse into their homes
and social structure is a poignant experience. The cost is USD 30 per adult.
