I feel the same way! Seeing the whole eco system from above shows us how small we are in this vast landscape. Being able to look into Tanzania, see the Mara River meandering through the Maasai Mara and watch the herds of wildebeest trailing below like ants; it is very surreal. It is a very "god like" experience.

The experience was amazing as far as the balloon ride. HOWEVER, folks....in this time of corona virus...this company couldn't give a !@@# about anyone. Their staff were NOT wearing masks even though their signage stated all had to wear them. They certainly did not enforce

Good afternoon Jimmy y, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am very glad to hear that you had an amazing balloon ride with us - truly great to hear. I am saddened to hear that your experience was marred by the fact that no one was wearing masks. I have recently joined the Balloon Safaris team, as Managing Director, and I can assure you that this is not the case anymore. We have strict protocols in place, all of which are thoroughly enforced. Stay safe
