Serengeti Balloon Safari Tour
Experience a balloon safari over the Serengeti, sometimes flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below.
See East Africa from a Balloon
A beautiful indulgence and possibly the best way to see the flat plains of East Africa; imagine gently floating above vast crisp wilderness with sights and vivid colours as far as the eye can see. An early start sees you on the Serengati Plains, with a warm cup of coffee and a safety briefing from your balloon pilot before the inflation of your balloon.
Take off is at dawn, rising as the sun rises and float in whichever direction the winds of the morning take the balloon. Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of your balloon: sometimes flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below. At other times he will ascend to 1000' or more to see the enormity and wonderful panorama of the Serengeti.
As the balloon is mostly silent (besides for when the burners are used to gain altitude), this is an excellent means of wildlife spotting undetected (especially reccomended during the Great Wildebeest Migration) The flight is for about one hour depending on conditions. You celebrate in the traditional manner with champagne before sitting down to a full English breakfast This adventure will fit in with all safari itineraries that include a night in central Serengeti or Western Corridor Camps. *Pricing includes conservation fees and landing fees.
