activities to try:

 

Governors’ Balloon Safaris : A jeep may be your first idea of transportation while out on a safari in the Maasai Mara Reserve.  Make your safari a truly unique experience by viewing the wildlife from above- in a hot air balloon!  See the sunrise of the Masai from a new perspective that will be worth every penny.  After about an hour in the air, you will land on the reserve and enjoy a delicious champagne breakfast.  Drift over tree tops, come close to the giraffes, and see the massive crocodiles swimming down the winding Mara river.  Book your balloon safari soon, as they do tend to book up far in advance.  For more information, inquire here http://www.governorscamp.com/things-to-do/masai-mara/hot-air-ballooning

 

Game Drives: Game drives are designed to take you close to the wildlife rich spots in the Maasai Mara. This gives you an opportunity to view wild animals in their natural habitat as they go about their daily activities. Game drives are done during the day or night time. It is recommended that you use a local driver/guide s/he should be familiar with the area, able to give you lots of information about the animals and their habitat, and know where they can currently be found and how best to approach them. However, one can opt for a self-drive safari on condition that you are familiar with the rules and regulations of the Maasai Mara National Reserve.  You can book a game drive with your luxury camp (Cottar’s, Naibor).
