Ballooning the Serengeti Go Back
 
Ballooning the Serengeti


When:Daily
Where:Serengeti National park



Can you imagine anything more incredible than the silent experience of floating in a balloon at dawn over the panoramic expanse of the Serengeti?
The best time to make this trip is during the Green Season (which is from late May to early June) and from November to December, when the great herds of wildebeest and zebra are usually in the central Serengeti area. While the movements of thousands of animals cannot be predicted, what is certain is that whatever month you chose to go you will catch some action, since the flying area is over the Seronera river. Here, predators lie in wait beside the watering holes where their prey slake their thirst during the dry season, and you get a birds-eye view.

The Balloon Safari team collect you from your central Serengeti lodge or camp and take you to the launch site near Maasai Kopjes. The pilot introduces himself, gives a briefing and then the balloon is inflated for a dawn take-off. Rising with the sun, floating in whichever direction the wind decides, the trip includes cruising at various altitudes to allow close scrutiny of the animals below and breathtaking aerial views at 1000 feet. Athough the pilot must put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners, in-between the trip is blissfully silent.

The flight lasts about an hour, depending on conditions. Upon landing, guests are treating to an Out of Africa-style breakfast of champagne and silver service bacon and eggs. The safari team then drop guests at their game lodges to continue their day at around 10am. Space is limited and booking is advised.
