Serengeti Balloon Safaris
Serengeti Balloon Safari is the most beautiful balloon flight in the world and the ultimate Safari Experience which makes you enjoy the most beautiful migration of wildebeests through the endless plain of Serengeti.
5:00 am, Serengeti Balloon Safaris will collect you from your central Serengeti lodge or camp, and transfer you by Landrover to our launch site near Masai Kopjes. Here you will meet your pilot, receive a briefing and watch the inflation of your balloon.
At dawn we take off, rising as the sun rises and float in whichever direction the winds of the morning take us. 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. From time to time the pilot must put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners. In between these burns, there is silence apart from the natural sounds below.
OUT OF AFRICA BREAKFAST
Imagine sitting at a table under the shade of a classic umbrella tree on the Serengeti Plains. The table is laid with bone china and king’s silver cutlery.
The flight is for about one hour depending on conditions, and eventually you must land. You celebrate in the traditional manner with champagne (well, an excellent sparkling wine) before sitting down to a full English breakfast.
9:30 am Arrive at Seronera ready to continue your day’s activities.
Fresh tropical fruits, warm freshly baked bread and English traditional breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs, mushroom and tomato are all served by stewards in customary Swahili dress.
This adventure will fit in with all safari itineraries that include a night in central Serengeti (Serena Lodge, Seronera Lodge, Sopa Lodge, Mbuzimawe Camp or any central Serengeti camp site) Or Western Corridor Camps ( Grumeti River Camp, Kirawira Camp, Mbalageti Camp).
The Flight will last for about 1 hour. Over some of the most amazing natural wilderness.
The Serengeti plains and woodlands are world famous for the variety and sheer number of its animal population. A Serengeti Balloon Safari however, is not merely a game viewing experience, but rather an opportunity for an adventure and unique perspective over outstanding quintessentially African landscapes.
Of course there can be no guarantee that you will see specific animals from the balloon.
We have however seen some amazing wildlife from the balloon and witnessed many incidents such as lion kills, cheetah stalking and killing, leopard hunting and of course THE ANNUAL MILLION STRONG WILDEBEEST MIGRATION, one of the natural wonders of the world.
SerengetiBalloon Safaris are acutely aware of their environmental responsibilities and are proud of their ecological credentials. Serengeti Balloon Safaris (SBS) pay a substantial royalty to Tanzania National Parks for each passenger. These funds are used for conservation purposes in the Serengeti.
