Mara Bushtops

Without doubt one of the world’s most spectacular game reserves, Kenya’s treasured National Park – the Masai Mara – provides a breathtaking backdrop to the ultimate African Safari experience.

Taking its name from the region’s vast ‘dotted plains’, the landscape is a constantly moving tableau, literally teeming with an endless variety of wildlife.

In this magnificent wilderness you can immerse yourself in myriad new sensations; waking to the call of lions and buffalo, thrilling at the closeness of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles, basking in the glow of a crackling camp fire at twilight, and dreaming under a dazzling night-canopy of stars.

“You will stay there for two nights and will be waken you up at dawn with a delicious hot chocolate on your table. When you manage to open your eyes, you’ll realize you are in the middle of the Masai Mara… A special experience!” Carmen Díaz from Private Safaris

Optional: Hot Air Balloon Safari followed by sparkling wine breakfast 

Take to the skies for the ultimate Masai Mara wildlife adventure, soaring in a hot air balloon over herds of  game to the inner reaches of the Mara. You’ll ascend in the early morning, when winds are calmest. Watch as the professional crew fills the balloon with hot air.

Slowly the big, colorful bag begins to bulge and take shape. Depending on the season, you might witness herds of antelope flowing like schools of fish across the plain, groups of elephants grazing undisturbed in a remote ravine, lionesses stealthily stalking a herd of grunting wildebeest, or zebras conferring in a confusion of black and white stripes and bark-like calls.

After your incredible flight, it’s time to come back down to earth for breakfast. As you sip champagne and dig into a splendid breakfast of sizzling bacon, eggs, sausage, home-made breads, fresh tropical fruit and steaming cups of Kenyan coffee or tea under the clear blue sky, you might wonder what all the ordinary people are doing on this perfect African morning!

Before leaving, the pilot will present you with your balloon flight certificate, and then you’ll enjoy a game drive en route back to the lodge. No flight of the imagination can match this airborne experience!
