Hot Air Balloon safari operated in Central Serengeti, Grumeti Area, Ndutu Area and Kogatende Area

Your experience starts with a briefing by our guides, the night before the flight and signing the waiver form.

Our guide will pick you from your camp / lodge early morning (4am -5am) to arrive at our launch area by approximately 6am, giving you enough time to enjoy some hot Tanzanian coffee with homemade cookies, access to a clean toilet, and Free Wi-Fi. During this time the Pilot will brief you on the safety measures, launch & landing procedure, and what to expect.

We plan take off at about 6:30am subject to weather. The basket is on its side while you board and will stand up right just before taking off.

Just after you elevate from the ground, you most probably will enjoy a great African sunrise (depending on weather).

During the flight you will have a birds eye uninterrupted view of the vast plains of Serengeti, and you will understand why they call it endless plains. The pilot will try to spot wildlife for you and lower the balloon for better viewing. He may also rise the balloon for better speed / direction and also for some amazing views.

The flight usually lasts 1 hour +/- 15mins depending on the weather.

You can still enjoy hot coffee during the fight.

Landing really depends on the landscape of the area and the wind speeds. The basket could have few bumps before halting, and / or tip over, but most of the time it is a smooth and soft as the flight it self.

Once you disembark, you will enjoy a champagne celebration with a little history on how the tradition came to be.

After this you will be driven to our carefully selected bush breakfast area, warmly welcomed by our team to enjoy a scrumptious plated breakfast.
Be sure to give us any dietary requirements before hand so we can cater for you.

After your breakfast, you will be issued with your certificates and then returned to the Visitors Centre or nearest airstrip to meet up with your guide to continue with your safari.
