Kenya and Tanzania Blog Day 4                                                    Hot Air Balloon Safari over the Masai Mara

What a morning, what a day. We were up and out at 4:30 a.m to travel to the hot air balloon take off location, it took us almost an hour to reach our location. Then after a little paper work we were off. An amazing experience and a great opportunity to see and photograph the wildlife from a higher vantage point. The ride lasted for an hour. After we landed we had a champagne breakfeast on the Masai Mara. 

After breakfast we continued our safari exploring this region of the national park and again today we were rewarded with many great photo opportunities.

Below are a few images from todays safari, enjoy.
