Sun Africa Hotels has announced that they will launch their own balloon operation from their Keekorok Safari Lodge in April under the name Balloon Adventure now that the final test flights have been concluded by the manufacturers and the equipment is enroute to Kenya. Balloon Adventure more details about the company and its planned operations can be found via www.balloonadventure.co.ke will join a number of other companies offering early morning flights over the sprawling Masai Mara Game Reserve, where tourists can see the game from an airborne position, before completing the experience with a champagne breakfast at their landing site deep in the bush.
Sun Africa Hotels has also announced that their new luxurious Kiboko Camp on Lake Naivasha is on course for opening before the end of March this year. The new tented camp, located in a thorn tree forest at the lake shores, is a separate unit on the Lake Naivasha Country Clubs extensive estate, with its own reception, restaurant and bar, giving guests unrestricted and close up views over the lake from the terrace of their elevated tents. The opening of the new camp will take place alongside the opening of a new casino, which while privately owned and operated will be located at the Lake Naivasha Country Clubs main building. Next in line for a complete overhaul at the Lake Naivasha Country Club will be the swimming pool and Spa area, upon which completion the club is bound to become an even bigger attraction, not only for tourists from abroad but for expatriates and local visitors from the capital Nairobi, which is only just over 100 kilometres away. Expect more updates following a planned visit to the property over the coming weeks, so keep watching this space.
