Serengeti Balloon Safari Tour
Experience the beauty of the Serengeti from above. A hot air balloon safari over the Serengeti offers a birds-eye view of the rolling plains of East Africa. Take in the sights of the wildlife and landscapes below as the balloon gently floats through the crisp air. A hot air balloon safari provides excellent photographic opportunities from a unique perspective. Along with the incredible photos come memories that will last a lifetime; being thousands of meters above the Serengeti is definitely an unparalleled, once in a lifetime safari experience.
Here is a taste of what to expect from your Serengeti Balloon Safari
See East Africa from a Balloon
An early start sees you on the Serengeti Plains with a hot cup of coffee and a safety briefing from your balloon pilot.
Take off is at dawn and your hot air balloon rises as the sun does. Float in whichever direction the winds of the morning take the balloon. Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of your balloon; flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below. At other times the will ascend to 1000ft or more to see the panoramic views of the surrounding Serengeti.
As the balloon is mostly silent (except for when the burners are used to gain altitude), this is an excellent means of wildlife spotting undetected and is especially recommended during the Great Wildebeest Migration. The flight lasts approximately one hour depending on weather conditions.
Back on solid ground celebrate your time in the air with a glass of champagne before sitting down to a full English breakfast.
