We would like to inform our partners that when booking a balloon safari for your clients, please be advised of the following;

  • When booking a balloon safari for your clients, kindly be advised that the fee of US$80 per person for the Mara Triangle is not included in the balloon ride charge.
  • All guests booked for balloon rides therefore are required to have a valid ticket for the Mara Triangle. The ticket is valid for 24 hours.  
  • Whilst a one-day visit to the Mara Reserve is included in all 3-night stays at Elewana Elephant Pepper Camp, this does not cover the $80 charge for the Mara Triangle - where balloon flights land.

A balloon safari offers a mesmerising experience with a different perspective, especially in the Masai Mara, a spectacular destination even for the most experienced traveller, with breath-taking scenery that is every photographer’s dream and abundant wildlife that offers a never ending performance.

Experience the incredible beauty of the Masai Mara as you drift above the plains in a hot air balloon. Your adventure starts well before the sun peaks above the horizon, heading to the site where you will take off for an experience you will never forget. As dawn breaks the hot air balloon will carry you above the treetops and away, floating where the wind takes you. Your pilot can control the altitude of the balloon either flying just above the branches or can ascend to 1000′ or more to see the vast splendour of the panorama known as the Masai Mara. A balloon safari provides an extraordinary opportunity to enjoy a bird’s eye-view of the landscape below, a once in a lifetime experience culminating in a champagne breakfast on the open plains surrounded by wildlife and the magic of Africa.

Elewana Elephant Pepper Camp is situation in the Mara North Conservancy with outstanding wildlife viewing. The Camp is one of Kenya’s original, very small and exclusive tented camps, located away from other lodges in the pristine Mara North Conservancy, making it the perfect base from which to explore the wonders of the Mara. Nestled in a lush thicket of Elephant Pepper trees overlooking open grasslands frequented by herds of game, Elewana Elephant Pepper Camp maintains a rustic luxury and authenticity of a traditional safari from yesteryear. Spacious canvas tents are elegantly furnished with Raj campaign furniture, and enjoy comfortable en suite bathrooms.
