To get a bird's eye view of the animals, go ballooning. The trip is magical: spend an hour silently over the masai mara reserve. The hot balloon ride starts early in morning an by 6.30am you are airborne. The silent basket simple glides above the wildlife like a boat over silent waters. The animals below are undisturbed. During wildebeest migration, a the migration enthusiasts enjoy the gnu gnu sounds of them from all angles. No wonder there are so many hot air balloons in one morning in Masai Mara.
