SUNDOWNERS

Sundowners are an essential part of any safari experience. With a refreshing drink in hand and tasty homemade bitings (the Kenyan term for canapes), there is nothing better than watching the African sun sink low on the horizon over the vast animal filled plains of the Masai Mara. Our guides love to find the most dramatic and breath-taking spots for sundowners with a view!

1 of 1

SUNRISE BALLOON SAFARI

Soaring high over the savannah on a sunrise balloon safari is a truly unforgettable and magical experience. Glide silently above the plains and spot wildlife as you experience 360 degree views as far as the eye can see. Balloon rides are particularly magnificent during the migration, when you will witness millions of animals grazing on a green carpet below you. Ballooning costs US$ 450 per person, including a champagne bush breakfast.

1 of 1

WILDEBEEST MIGRATION

Sala’s is the first camp in the Mara to witness the phenomenal movement of over 1.5 million wildebeest, zebra and other antelope, which move year round on a circular migratory route in the greater Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. If you are staying with us between July and October, you might be lucky enough to catch the animals thundering by. Watching a river crossing is a tense and thrilling spectacle and will bring you face to face with the brutal reality of mother nature. Do check dates before travelling if you don’t want to miss this, as the timings vary each year, depending on when the rains begin.
