The sweeping plains of the Serengeti project nature in its wildest, most exotic form. Perhaps the most dramatic way to enjoy a panoramic view of the Serengeti is the early morning balloon safari that enables one to fly across the plains. Top of the range are the Cameron A 315 balloons, equipped with state of the art “whisper bummers maneuvered by experienced and highly qualified commercial balloon pilots.
Flights by Balloon in the Serengeti being with a drive through the dark of the early morning from the lodge/campsite then as down breaks over at about 6:00 am, the flight starts in a perfect silence of the early morning plains broken only by the soft roar of the balloon.
The flight usually takes one hour and culminates in a celebration with champagne and a full English breakfast prepared in the bush and served in style under the shade of umbrella shaped Acacia trees. A truly memorable experience! Bookings for balloon flights can be made through travel agents, tour operators or hotels/Lodges.
