Serengeti Balloon Safaris - Profile

General Information

Probably the most beautiful balloon flight in the world and the ultimate Safari Experience. At dawn we take off, rising as the sun rises and float in whichever direction the winds of the morning take us. Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of your balloon: sometimes flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below. At other times he will ascend to 1000' or more to see the enormity and wonderful panorama of the Serengeti. From time to time the pilot must put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners. In between these burns, there is silence apart from the natural sounds below.

Additional Information

Balloon rides in the Serengeti usually start at 5:00 am near Maasai Kopjes. The balloons float in whichever direction the winds take them, but the pilots control the altitude. The Serengeti National Park is a World Heritage site and attracts about 100,000 tourists annually. The Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequalled for its natural beauty and scientific value. With more than two million wildebeest, half a million Thomson's gazelle, and a quarter of a million zebra, it has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. The wildebeest and zebra moreover form the star cast of a unique spectacular - the annual Serengeti migration. The name "Serengeti" comes from the Maasai language and appropriately means endless plains. The National Park, with an area of 12,950 square kilometers, is as big as Northern Ireland, but its ecosystem, which includes the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Maswa Game Reserve, and the Maasai Mara Game reserve in Kenya.
