Magical Balloon Safaris with Views of Mt. Kilimanjaro
Kilimanjaro Balloon Safaris operates 365 days a year, weather permitting, in the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro and the area bordering the Amboseli National Park.
With a custom planned and constructed Balloon Safari Camp, we are completely self-sufficient, and you are assured of a first-class, high-quality experience.
Our Hot Air Balloon Safari is one of the best African safari tours, and attractions in Kenya and East Africa!
Our history and passion for Kenya and East Africa dates back to 1991, when our co-founder first traveled to the Amboseli area and fell in love with what we have come to know as ‘paradise’! After many years of operating in multiple locations and countries, we finally had the opportunity to start ballooning in one of the most favorable flight locations in the world. After a few years of extensive research and regulatory measures, we built our custom balloon camp on the edge of the Amboseli National Park and began flight operations in late 2020.
We at Kilimanjaro Balloon Safaris look forward to sharing our passion for ballooning, the Amboseli Ecosystem, local wildlife and culture with you!
Amboseli National Park
Kilimanjaro Balloon Safaris is located just outside Kimana Gate which is at the southeast section of the Amboseli National Park in Kenya. We launch our balloons from our custom-built balloon camp in the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Taking off just prior to sunrise, we rise majestically above the Amboseli Ecosystem to watch the sun gently kiss the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. With unparalleled views of the Amboseli National Park, we can see as far as Lake Amboseli while watching the wildlife below make their way toward the park swamps for the day.
A Balloon Safari is truly the best way to view the Amboseli National Park, Mt. Kilimanjaro, local lodges and camps and surrounding Maasai Manyattas and Bomas.

We recently were lucky enough to experience a hot air balloon flight over Amboseli National Park with Kilimanjaro Balloon Safaris. It was the most amazing experience imaginable. When we popped up through the clouds at 8000 feet to be greeted with the sun rising in a perfect orb adjacent to mount Kilimanjaro it exceeded all of our expectations. Captain Casey did an amazing, professional job and guided us through the entire experience in a very friendly and safety conscious manner. Would we do it again? You bet, it is a real bucket list trip and one you will remember for a lifetime.

We would like to thank everyone involved with our great hot air balloon experience, including champagne breakfast. Amazing experience and crew. It was very organised and we were in the basket ready for take off very quickly. We will never forget the sunrise from the balloon with white Kibo in the background. A lot of adrenaline, we are thankful for such special experience. Special thanks to our captain for friendliness, professionality and good humored and obviously passionate about what he does. The breakfast was delicious, and the ambient was spectacular. Wonderful views and fantastic staff made it an absolute pleasure. We would highly recommend to everybody.
