Hot Air Balloon Over the Wildebeest Migration

HerdTracker update 05 Dec 2018 by Niamh Mc Namara

There are some things that just have to be done in a lifetime and hot air ballooning over the Masai Mara wildebeest migration is one of them. There is little that can match the aesthetic appeal of a huge colourful balloon rising like an airborne out of the pre-dawn darkness into the first rays of the sun.

Niamh captured the herds in the Masai Mara heading towards the Serengeti during her hot air balloon safaris.

Best places to experience the migration: Safari Holidays In Masai Mara

Recommended safari: Honeymoon Safari in the Serengeti National Park
