Amboseli Hot Air Balloon Safaris; Amboseli Hot Air Balloon rides are available in Amboseli National Park in Kenya. Orange flames dance as they light up the cool crisp Amboseli dawn filling the balloon with hot air. It’s a few precious minutes to sunrise and the balloon begins its tranquil ascent into the Amboseli skyline.


Drift with the gentle wind across the myriad of pinks, oranges and purples lighting up the Amboseli sky as you watch the spectacular ‘African sunrise’.


Amboseli Hot Air Ballooning is without doubt the most romantic way to fly… Imagine floating over the open plains and watching as the sunrise turns the awe inspiring Mt. Kilimanjaro the highest in Africa a purple hue, and the snows on its Kibo peak, a delicate pink.


The magnificent sight of Kilimanjaro above herds of elephant crossing the plains of Amboseli is a timeless African image and one of life’s most memorable experiences.


Amboseli Hot Air Balloon Safaris allows you to spot buffalo, zebra or giraffes happily roaming the Park, perhaps even the king of the jungle (Lion) enjoying an early morning kill.


Get an aerial view of the authentic Masai villages (Manyattas)...the list is endless and after about an hour depending on the conditions, the balloon will slowly descend on the red volcanic ash of the Amboseli earth.


As balloons only go where the wind takes them, each balloon flight is a unique journey of its own.
