Day 02: Enjoy Full day in Masai Mara

Begin your morning with a spectacular Hot Air Balloon flight at the break of dawn – ‘float’ gracefully over the scenic African savannah teeming with wildlife. The balloon takes off approx 6 to 6.15am, which means you will be collected from your camp around 5.30am – yes, an early start but so worth it ! The one hour flight ends with a ‘Champagne Breakfast in the Bush’’, at your landing site. Return to the Camp for the rest of the morning at leisure – or you could choose to enjoy a mid morning game drive of you so wish. There is a swimming pool at this camp’s sister property nearby and they will take you there upon request. After the sumptuous lunch, take a mid afternoon safari game drive to further explore the reserve. Return to the camp by evening [ typically 6pm] in time for a relaxed evening which may be enlivened by entertainment provided by the lodge, followed by dinner.
