Hot Air Balloon: Serengeti PDF Print E-mail

"There is nothing quite like it. The absolute peace of immense vistas, muted colours and crisp fresh air...and the ever present promise of something wild.... as the balloons float you silently above it all,its like a dream come true!"


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

5:00 am, You will be picked up from your central Serengeti lodge or camp, and transferred by Landrover 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 in 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 he will ascend to 1000' 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.


Imagine sitting at a table under the shade of a classic umbrella tree on the Serengeti Plains.  The table is laid with bone china and king’s silver cutlery.

Fresh tropical fruits, warm freshly baked bread and English traditional breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs, mushroom, tomato are all served by stewards in customary Swahili dress.
