The ultimate kick is a balloon ride during migration, but expect to pay quite a fee for it. Make sure you take lots of photos, and when the sun rises, capture the shadows of the balloon and the animals below for an extra dimension to your photos.

When you’ve landed you’ll receive a glass of champagne to celebrate, and you can also opt to have breakfast. It’s definitely one of the best excursions in Africa, and worth every cent.
