The flight lasts around an hour, drifting wherever the air currents take you. There are ample opportunities for photography and video filming. Then your Kenyan Hot Air Balloon Safari finishes with a flourish. In the time honour-ed tradition of balloon flights the world over, you toast your return to earth with a champagne breakfast, cooked wherever you land.
