Enjoy authentic interactions with the Maasai, see the big cats, see more animals than you ever thought possible and closer than you ever thought possible!

Each flight is a different journey dictated by the direction of the wind, where the sights and sounds rise from the ground to meet you. We know where we’ve started but we don’t know where we will return to earth. This is part of the adventure. Sometimes the basket will be gently brushing the tips of the grass and then climbing, climbing through the layers of air until you’re high enough to see the curve of the horizon, painted gold and pink by the early sun. Our pilots not only have years of experience in harnessing the African wind, but are also interpreters of the wild lives in the ebb and flow of the landscape below. Around an hour or so after you lift into the sky, the basket will return to the plains of the Serengeti. But it’s not over yet.

There is truly nothing to compare with breakfast served under the sweeping canopy of an acacia in the middle of the Serengeti plains. Tropical fruit, bread baked this morning and eggs cooked in the bush, all made more delicious by the location, and served on linen, bone china and Sheffield cutlery in an ‘Out of Africa’ style. Shoulder to shoulder with your fellow passengers, this is a time to soak in the exceptional flight you’ve just been a part of and absorb the moment.

Serengeti balloon safari is a fantastic once in a lifetime experience, particularly suitable for a bird’s eye-view game viewing experience on your African Mecca wildlife tour in northern Tanzania. Hot air balloon rides leave from three sites in this prime national park. In Central Serengeti, wildlife gathers year-round in the Seronera River Valley where there is permanent water.

The day had come to go hot air ballooning over the Serengeti. Fortunately the  camp in central Serengeti is close to the launch site. It is a 5:00am start in the darkness under the stars waiting for pickup. 1 hour ride to the balloon site. You arrive in the dark while the balloons are unpacked and fired up. Even this experience is incredible before you even get aboard. Your experience guide will give you a briefing before departing. Take off just in time to see the sunrise!

After descending to the ground there will be an amazing breakfast with champagne waiting for you. All you can possibly want to eat being served by a team that treats you like royalty! After taking in the wonderful scenery you are driven back for your overnight or even an afternoon drive if you choose.

Hot air ballooning in the Serengeti exposes you to the best experience of Serengeti with no restrictions on the off road drives, speed limits and many more non avoidable errors during game drives. All the balloon packages are booked in advance as there is limitation on the number of guests per day.  Let us book your ballooning with any safari you choose, or feel free to book yourself.

You don’t need 5 reasons to take a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti; only one: it is one of the most amazing experiences of your life!!
