Masai Mara

Sample picture of Hot Air Balloon Safari

Hot Air Balloon Safari

Drift above the savannah plains with the soft calls of birds, low snorts and grunts of hippos and a distant roar of a lion.

Hot air ballooning over the Masai Mara offers a totally different perspective of the landscape. On game drives, you see that there are patches of forest but mainly time is spent on the grassy plains. From up above, the landscape takes on a new life. It’s from the hot air balloon that you see how the Mara River snakes through the Great Rift Valley and its’ tributaries trisect the landscape.

Sample picture of Maasai Mara Game Drive

Masai Mara Game Drive

With gently rolling hills and wide open plains, this is the quintessential African safari experience. Travellers can expect to encounter large numbers of animals year round, with big herds of elephant, buffalo and other plains game. It is also common to see predator interaction. The Great Wildebeest Migration passes through the Mara for approximately three months each year.

Sample picture of Masai Dance

Maasai Dance

Many travellers to Tanzania and Kenya visit a Maasai village and have the opportunity to take part in the adamu, the dance affectionately referred to as the “jumping dance.” It’s an impressive dance, not only for its energy but also for its deceptively simple appearance. Watch the Maasai do it; they make it look so easy. When it’s your turn, you realize it’s much harder than it looks. Everyone has a good laugh, including the Maasai.
