Probably the most beautiful balloon flight in the world and the ultimate safari experience.
A popular addition to your stay in the Serengeti and Tarangire National Park is a balloon safari. A lifetime experience not to be missed.
This option gives an entirely new perspective from ordinary wildlife view in safari vehicles to a beautiful view from up above.
At 5:00 am, Serengeti /Tarangire Balloon Safaris team will collect from your Lodge or Camp and transfer by Land rover/Land cruiser to the launching site. Here will meet your pilot, receive a briefing and watch the inflation of your balloon. At dawn you will take off, rising as the sun rises and float whichever direction the winds of the morning takes you.
The pilots have international qualifications and vast experience of flying in Africa. Up to 32 passengers can be flown daily.
Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of your balloon: Sometimes flying at treetops height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife bellow. At other times the pilot will ascend to 1000ft or more to see the enormity and wonderful panorama of the Parks, from time to time the pilot must put more heart into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners.
Floating gently over the plains and wildlife of the Serengeti and Tarangire NP, the flight is for about 1 hr.
After landing and after breakfast will receive your Balloon Safari Certificate and enjoy a traditional champagne celebration and an “Out of Africa” breakfast prepared and served in the bush.
After this will return back to your lodge or camp in Serengeti or Tarangire NP arriving at 09.30 hrs, to meet your driver-guide ready to continue with the days planned activities.
