About the Balloon safari Serengeti
There’s no better way to experience a safari by doing a Hot air Balloon safari serengeti. A sunrise hot-air balloon flight over the Serengeti sure is one of the most unforgettable and extraordinary adventures you can do and it’s definitely one of the main highlights of your safari.
The hot-air balloon gently takes you up in the air and floats wherever the morning winds may take you. During the ride you have a stunning and far-reaching view of the great plains of the serengeti. From here you can spot big herds of wildebeast, giraffes and prides of lions right below you. At the right time of year and with a good amount of luck you might even be able to experience the great migration from above.
Balloon Safari Serengeti Info
The flight of the balloon safari serengeti lasts for 1-1,5 hour (depending on the weather) and starts at sunrise. This means an early departure from your lodge at around 4:45 am. After the hot-air balloon safari, a champagne bush breakfast will be waiting for you to make the experience even more unique than it already is.
Each trip is guided by a licensed pilot and big team to handle the preparations of the hot-air balloon.
Note that children are permitted from age seven and above.
Best time to do the Ballon Safari in Serengeti
The dry season (June to October) is the ideal time for a hot-air balloon safari in the Serengeti. During the rainy months (March, April & May), some balloon rides are still available, but the actual flight is more dependent on weather conditions. During heavy rains and/or winds the balloon unfortunately can’t take off. In this case the flight will be cancelled and your payment will be fully refunded or reschuled to another day if your trip-itinerary allows it.
