Serengeti, Tanzania Serengeti National Park Tour Guide: Kristen Simmons

Probably the most beautiful balloon flight in the world and the ultimate Safari Experience.


Ballon Safari

5:00 am, you will be collected from your Central Serengeti, Western Corridor, or Serengeti South lodge or camp, and transfer you by Landrover/Landcruiser to our launch site.  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 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 our pilot may ascend to 1000 ft 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.

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 prepared and served in the bush in “Out of Africa” style with bone china, linen table cloth, King’s silver etc.

After breakfast you receive your Balloon certificate and later meet up with your safari driver ready to continue your day’s activities.

    This experience is well worth the money. They picked us from our campsite and took us to the launch site. The pre talk was thorough and I felt safe the entire time! The ride was incredible and the view of the Serengeti was incredible

    Well worth the pre-dawn alarm and cool temperatures! This sunrise view of the Serengeti should not be missed! Our skilled pilot Abeid brought us within 10 vertical feet of a hippo pond and skirted the treetops as we enjoyed the silence and scenery

    My wife and I were on a Safari in the Serengeti and had signed up in advance for the balloon safari. This was a once in a life time treat to be able to peaceful sore above the beautiful Serengeti.

    This was our first ballon tour and it was amazing. Wonderful crew and the captain was simply over the top with enthusiasm. We drifted over two prides of lions. This add on is a must do on our recommendation list for visitors to the Serengeti.

    We did many Balloonrides already but this one was really super! Jason, our super pilot, steered the balloon, whereever possible, as low as possible and inbetween we had such a peaceful, “silent“ flight, it was incredible
