Kenya’s Mandal Mara |
Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya Hot air balloons in Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve have served as the ultra-romantic backdrop of nearly every East Africa safari brochure since the early years of luxury tourism (we’re looking at you, Micato Safaris). Similar to the Serengeti, here, wildlife spotting is achievable year-round; but the vistas here are most spectacular when the wildebeest have migrated across the Mara River into the Maasai Mara, usually between July and October.

Extreme adventure |
Queenstown, New Zealand A hot air balloon ride may not seem all that hard-core compared to other activities in New Zealand’s extreme adventure capital, but it’s still one for the bucket list. Here, the jaw-dropping Middle-Earth landscapes we admired during The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit come to life. It’s not bungee jumping or sky diving, but expect an adrenaline rush all the same on this early-morning adventure with Sunrise Balloons.
