Enhance your African safari even further by embarking on the hot air balloon ride of a lifetime. This one-hour flight, starting early in the morning, will give you a bird’s-eye view of the magnificent setting of the Great Rift Valley, the best east Africa has to offer, just as the sun begins the rise. After landing, a champagne breakfast in the bush adds to the buzz you’ll get from the early morning air and the sense of serenity that comes from drifting silently above one of the world’s most beautiful wildernesses. A morning game drive back to your lodge offers an excellent opportunity for additional wildlife viewing, as early morning is the ideal time to see wild animals on the plains.
Due to high call volume, we recommend you visit MyPortfolio to book this Destination Enhancement. Don’t wait — these optional experiences are limited to a select number of guests and are selling out fast!
Bask in beauty of a golden sunset and the natural symphony of the Serengeti’s nocturnal wildlife on this incredible afternoon game drive. An afternoon safari is a more peaceful experience and, as the heat of the day abates, animals come out of hiding, ready to start their nighttime activities. Your expert guide will select the best spots for animal viewing and taking in the vast landscape before you. You’ll also enjoy refreshing African sundowner cocktails and snacks, making your experience even more special.
Head into the reserve on a guided morning game drive and visit the Chimpanzee Sanctuary. Each chimp has a traumatic past, but now lives as part of the troupe in a 300-acre area. You’ll have exclusive behind-the-scenes access and an opportunity to learn more about these adorable primates. Because they are not indigenous to Kenya, this is the only place in the country where you can see them.
The tour is available during your optional trip extension in Kenya.
Join an optional bucket-list opportunity when you rise before dawn and take flight in a hot air balloon, floating effortlessly over the Serengeti at the whim of the wind. Your skilled pilot will have you sky high one moment and skimming the tree tops the next, all the while spotting game from above. Within seconds of landing, the crew following your progress in support vehicles will carve a meadow in the grass and set up tables for a scrumptious champagne breakfast. This extraordinary experience is one that should not be missed.
Head out on an afternoon game drive in Amboseli National Park, led by expert guides. Their knowledge and experience will come into play when spotting the elusive wildlife that calls this park home.
Later, stop at a Maasai village and hear how, despite western influences, the traditional mud-hut way of life remains intact here. Robed in red, with their spears and rungu (knobkerrie) always in hand, the Maasai warriors will perform their traditional jumping dance, revealing how high they can leap. This enlightening experience will reveal just how different the Maasai existence is to your own.
