Welcome to Africa!

Including time spent at Mahali Mzuri – Sir Richard Branson’s Kenyan Safari Camp, this trip not only takes in some of Mara’s greatest game viewing sights, but also lifts the lid on life in this most beautiful camp located high up over a gorge where all sorts of wildlife can be seen right from your personal balcony

Day 2 - 3 : Masai Mara Game Reserve
Full day in Masai Mara with morning and afternoon game viewing drives in search of the ‘big five’. Masai Mara is the northern most extension of the Serengeti Plains and one of the richest wildlife Game Reserves. It is home to the awesome black-manned lion, the elusive leopard, stately giraffes, and vast herds of elephants, rhino, thundering herds of zebra, migrating wildebeest and numerous other plains game.
OPTIONAL ACTIVITY: Today’s adventure begins just before dawn. Flames from the hot air balloon burners light the darkness as the crew inflate their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies and the hot air balloon fills then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the rainbow-coloured canopy, you’re off for a game-viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective. Apart from the occasional hiss of the burners, a lion’s roar, elephants crashing through the bush, baboons perched in the tips of the trees startled and screeching to see something above them, the flight above the Masai Mara plains is magically silent. At the end of the flight, the passengers are treated to a champagne breakfast in the bush, complete with flowers. China and crystal are set out on the table that is placed under a convenient acacia tree. The finishing touch to the flight is a game drive back to the camp, and the possibility of seeing the same pride of lions, or herd of elephants that had been viewed while ballooning. A flight certificate is issued on completion of the balloon safari.
Back at Camp enjoy a sumptuous lunch and a well-deserved rest.
