Floating in the sky on a hot air balloon & shooting the animals in Maasai Mara was a dream sequence actually happening!!! They picked us from our hotel at 4 Am & we were up in the sky before sunrise. Rising sun never looked so enchanting & beautiful. Maasai Mara grass lands were full of animals both local residents & the migrated ones. We could spot a lion pride, Hyena, Giraffes, elephants & millions of Wildebeests & Zebras. Many Wildebeest were assembling on the Serengeti plains to cross the Mara River over to Savannah plains. Crocodile in the river was engaged with a young buffalo who was struggling to negotiate the steep path along the river & then there was a big Hippopotamus having a morning bath.
We were dropped in the middle of the wilderness for some snacks. It was great having a delicious Champagne breakfast with millions of animal around us. Cost of the ride was a bit obscene but worth every penny.
