The Maasai Mara National Park is world-famous for many reasons, and there are many ways to explore it. However, everything pales in comparison to drifting gently among the clouds and looking down on the vast acacia-dotted savannah teeming with wildlife. The crisp morning air gently kisses your face as you sip your morning coffee, and you feel your heart soaring higher than the clouds above.
