Serengeti Balloon Safari In Tanzania
Rising in the chill before first light, then bouncing along bumpy roads in a game drive vehicle to a rendezvous with a hot-air balloon may seem a fairly strange activity on an African Safari. But fast forward a few hours and you are sitting around a splendidly laid table, under a flat-topped acacia tree, on the legendary plains of the Serengeti sipping champagne and the picture becomes one of refinement.
The most beautiful balloon ride on earth
Often referred to as the most beautiful balloon ride in the world the Serengeti Balloon Safari is one certainly one of the most sought after safari activities in Africa. Imagine watching the sun rise whilst soaring above the plains of Africa's most famous wilderness area. Animals go about their activities, unperturbed, as you enjoy the world from your lofty perch.
The pilot varies the height of the balloon during the flight to enable differing perspectives of the plains and the animals. After about an hour the balloon descends, and you land to a breakfast under the trees in the heart of the Serengeti.
Breakfast is a lavish affair with fresh fruit and a hot English platter of eggs, sausage and more - and you will be pampered by the ever-willing staff in traditional dress.
Balloon safari lodges in the Serengeti
Wash basins and bathrooms are set up in the vicinity of the landing area for the convenience of guests. All lodges in the central Serengeti region offer the balloon safari as an activity. The lodges further afield do not have enough time to get their guests to the balloon in the mornings.
