in Kenya with a LUXE Experience!

Enjoy a relaxing overnight flight to Nairobi for a luxurious 9 day / 8 night adventure. Kenya is renowned for its remarkable diversity of landscapes, animals and cultures. From vast plains to snowcapped mountain summits, Kenya provides a striking backdrop for Africa’s most classic safari adventures. Enjoy a spectacular safari experience and explore the remote reaches of Kenya’s parks and enjoy day and night drives and bush walks.  This adventure serves up the colours, culture, and wildlife of Kenya. Journey across the rolling plains and through the acacia trees of the legendary Masai Mara in search of Africa’s ever-elusive "big five." 

At night, tucked beneath canvas under a canopy of stars, listen to a lion roar across the savanna. Wildlife is prolific here any time, but nothing tops the Great Migration, when nearly two million wildebeest and zebra follow the rains to new grass. The region is also the traditional home of the Maasai, nomadic pastoral herders. Kenya’s tremendous biodiversity includes 25,000 different animal species. No other African country boasts the diversity of Kenya.

Why Book Your Package Within Dr. Funmi's Group?

 
Dr. Funmi has taken time to negotiate significant air discounts so that the group can travel together plus she has secured a limited number of reduced-rate rooms throughout the Safari Experience to make your trip to Kenya amazing. As Dr. Funmi's official travel agency, LUXE Worldwide Travel offers you Peace of Mind that your trip details will be take care of, your hotel reservations will be honored when you arrive, and all COVID regulations will be clearly explained to you.
 
Other online agencies might seem to have competitive hotel or air rates but many do not offer payment plans to make your trip more affordable. Often times, their offers cannot be validated at check-in and rooms may be sold out when you arrive because many agencies over-sell. Discount online websites often don’t include resort fees, hotel taxes nor gratuities.
 
Plus, if you book outside of Dr. Funmi's group with another Vendor, you might not be able to attend Dr. Funmi's private events.

Dr. Funmi's Birthday Sunrise Balloon Air Safari and Champagne Breakfast (Day 5: 10/22/2022)
Unavailable as of April 1, 2022

$485.00
Deposit: $100.00

Join Dr. Funmi as she celebrates the big 50 with a Sunrise Balloon Air Safari in the Maasai Mara National Reserve.  This is an optional add-on to the trip.
 

Arise before dawn, and take off in a hot air balloon as you watch the breathtaking sunrise over the Maasai Mara. Drift above the beautiful landscape, watching wild game roam the vast plains below. The finale is a sumptuous champagne breakfast before beginning the Morning game drive. 

Please note that the group’s morning game drive will begin while en route to pick you up, so the group may see other wildlife before you’ve rejoined the group. 

Wildlife viewing, quantity and species of animals seen is dependent upon local conditions including weather, wind and seasonal migration patterns. The take-off time and the duration of the flight and tour may vary due to weather conditions. 

Each balloon’s basket usually accommodates 12-14 guests. Price is subject to change based on availability. 

We advice guests to wear warm clothing, and carry a camera to capture memories of the animals and the serene nature they will witness. Once settled, the balloon’s pilot will light up the banners and as the flames flare, the balloon inflates and rises to the skies. The entire journey lasts an hour, and upon landing, guests are treated to champagne and a breakfast. Total time including breakfast is approximately 2 hours.
