Hot air ballooning offers a wide vantage point for travellers to watch animals in the Serengeti from above, without all the obstructions of foliage, or the dangers of getting too close.
If you’re looking for a new kind of adventure, then consider taking one in the sky as you float over the Serengeti, giving you a great view of the animals, especially during the season of the great migration. Unlike your regular balloon excursion, the Serengeti is is perpetual motion, making every trip a brand new one.
The adventure begins just before dawn, which allows you to see the beauty of the sunrise over the Serengeti – a real treat for photographers. You will watch the herds of Â wildebeest, giraffes, zebras, and other animals as they begin their day.
The wind will decide which direction to take you, but an experienced balloon pilot will adjust your altitude to give you the best possible view of key areas of the park, and offer details about specific points of interest.
The balloon tour lasts about an hour, but the fun doesn’t end there. A glass of champagne awaits you when you land, before you are whisked off for an English breakfast in the bush.
The cost for a Serengeti Balloon Safari is $499 per person and is restricted to children under the age of 7. If you are pregnant or have a heart condition or other ailment, it’s advised to consult your doctor before booking your safari.
