Have you ever wondered what birds see as they soar over-head, or have you ever dreamed about looking down upon a vast stretch of open wilderness? Well Serengeti Balloon Safaris can give that to you, and more. Starting at dawn and ascending with the sun, your adventure will begin just before sunrise and you will climb into the sky as the new day begins. Your balloon will rise up and over the magnificent Serengeti in blissful tranquility.
Your expert guide will take you to varying altitudes and through different layers of air as you are navigated over areas of the Serengeti
that no-one else can see. Some of the flight may be low, brushing the tops of the grass and at other times your balloon may climb to 1000 feet or more.
Whilst you're floating in serenity and marvelling at the awe-inspiring landscape, don't forget to look down. One of the great things about having a bird's eye view is that game can be spotted from afar. It is not unlikely that you will come across members of the 'Big 5' as well as herds belonging to the Great Migration
. Your unique view point should be utilised so remember to keep your eyes peeled. Although each balloon adventure is different and you never know where the wind may sweep you, the balloon safari generally takes about an hour before your guide will start your descent.
Once your feet are firmly on the ground, you will celebrate with a 'champagne toast' before heading off for your bush-breakfast. This is another unforgettable experience as you dine in the very wilderness you were recently flying over. Animals may stroll past whilst you enjoy a well-deserved breakfast that will prepare you for the rest of the day's activities.
We absolutely love the unqiue perspective that is offered by the balloon safari and is definitely an opportunity not to be missed if you are visiting the Serengeti.
