I am not sure about this? They talk about music in the bush inc. DJ's and bands. How sensitive is this to the environment, and how much mess will be left?

I have to say, I think this sounds like something I would avoid being there for. Even without the bands and DJs (which sounds truly awful) I don't think I'd want the sky full of hot air balloons. That's not what I go on safari for.

I second StokeyGirl's comments. I'd be a bit annoyed if I traveled all the way to Kenya for a Safari and the area was over run by a large festival.
