Serengeti Balloon Safari
Balloon safaris are a romantic and evocative way of experiencing the wilderness of East Africa, as you gracefully and silently fly over the plains teeming with herds of wild life in the early morning. Typically, a ballon safari begins between 6 am and lasts for around 1-2 hours, during which you will likely see the magnificent wildlife below over several square kilometres of the game park. Ballon safaris are held regularly only in the Serengeti and take off from designated sites (in the Seronera area) where the disturbance to animals is kept to a minimum. Your safari vehicle drops you off at the take off site and picks you up from your landing site. The safari is followed by a champagne breakfast in the bush, a fitting end to your memorable flight in the wild.
Ballooning happens at dawn, which implies a pre-day break wake up with steaming espresso and a nippy drive to the dispatch. The feeling of fervour swells through you as the extraordinary balloons gradually load up with tourist, rising up awkwardly over their fastened crates. Take-off is a boisterous, uneven issue, which adds to the excitement and improves the sudden quietness when you reach cruising height. The commotion of the warming fire intersperses the calm alongside the delicate whistle of air flows and incidental ‘ooohs’ from your co-passengers.
The land beneath you is calm in the tranquility of first light as dawn spreads out in splendid hues on the eastern skyline. As the earth heats up, untamed life begins to move – the cool of early morning is the best time of day for diversion seeing, and a tourist balloon gives you a particularly great perspective of the fields. The balloon can fly moderately low over huge groups (in contrast to helicopters and light air ship), making this outstanding amongst other approaches to see the full wonder of the Great Wildebeest Migration.
When you contact down on strong earth once more, a sublime champagne informal breakfast anticipates you, arranged and served on the savannah – the ideal end to a remarkable and serene safari experience. You can choose from our Four-hour and Two-hour Balloon Safari according to your tour style of Budget, mid-range and luxury style.
