Hot Air Balloon Safaris in Tanzania are popular in Serengeti. You can stretch our eyes as far as you can see while up the sky. Flights take-off from here because the climate is almost perfect and the winds blow gently and reliably throughout the year. Each hot air balloon safari flight is a different journey dictated by the direction of the wind, where the sights and sounds rise from the ground to meet you. It is one of the romantic and evocative ways of experiencing the wilderness of East Africa as you gracefully and silently fly over the plains crowded with herds of wildlife in the early morning.
There are things that are worth getting up early for, and a hot air balloon safari is certainly one of them. Rising before the birds and heading out from your camp in Serengeti in the silence towards the launch-site is all part of the anticipation. Perhaps one of the Serengeti’s more indefinable inhabitants will be caught in a hunt by the headlights on this nocturnal game drive to the take-off points.
Normally, a Tanzania hot air balloon safari begins in the morning, around 6 am and lasts for roughly 1-2 hours floating silently in the sky in a hot-air balloon seeing the bush from above. You are exposed to see the sun rise from a distance and very likely to see the magnificent number of wildlife below, over several square kilometers of the park tramping the savannah. The clarity of the air affords you the views of the Ngorongoro Highlands and sometimes Lake Victoria. From our lofty vantage point, you can appreciate the Serengeti in all its majestic scale, and you have a view freed by the narrow confines of vehicles and roads.
