Balloon Safaris

Discover A New Perspective

Nothing is quite as exhilarating as taking to the skies in an African Balloon safari. Your adventure starts early morning when you depart your lodge or camp. It is still dark, allowing for a quick night game drive on the way to the launch site. Upon arrival, you will meet your pilot and witness your balloon being inflated and prepared for launch. The experience of peacefully floating over the vast African savannas while taking-in the enchanting vistas and surroundings truly gifts you the ability to appreciate Tanzania from a different perspective. 

Flight time is usually around 1 hour (depending on conditions) and whereas the launch site is known, the element of adventure lies in the landing site, which is genuinely unknown as the balloon floats in the direction and speed of the wind. The sense of occasion is marked by a champagne breakfast before heading off for your ‘Out of Africa’ breakfast which is prepared in the bush and served under a convenient acacia tree.

Balloon safaris can be experienced exclusively in Tarangire national park and the Serengeti national park.

"It was amazing seeing the Serengeti from above. We saw hippos, elephants, wart hogs and other smaller animals. Even though it was a very early start to the morning, it was worth it; seeing the sunrise from a balloon was brilliant."
