Adventure Experience | Serengeti Balloon Safari

There is nothing that epitomises the great Serengeti experience more than floating over the golden savanna dotted with animals in a hot air balloon. It’s truly a bucket list experience and we advise you to book this excursion at the same time as your accommodation to ensure a place.

Ever gone on a hot air balloon safari? If you have had the opportunity to drift soundlessly over incredible African landscapes and see the wildlife from the air, it’s something you are sure to remember forever. Until now, hot air ballooning has been primarily available in majestic Serengeti National Park.

One of Africa’s most prized and achingly beautiful regions, the great Serengeti features some of this magical continent’s greatest concentrations of wildlife.

The Experince

Our custom 4X4 safari vehicles will pick you from your camp or lodge between 0400-0530AM and drive you to the launch site, to arrive by 0600AM. Depending on the weather conditions, you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while you watch the balloons being prepared for take-off. Your pilot will give a safety briefing as well as explain what you can expect during the flight.

Balloon Safaris begin in the still air at sunrise. As first light sends a promising glow across the horizon at dawn, the balloon rises above the plains. The sensation of drifting above the world in silence is second only to the breathtaking views of the plains, forests and drifting wherever the current takes you.

The sounds below carry upwards, a lion's roar, elephants crashing through the bush, screeching baboons looking quizzically upwards.Upon landing between 7:15 and 7:30 AM, observe the complete deflation of the balloon envelope as our vehicles wait for you for a short drive to your morning hearty meal.
