When is the best time to go on a balloon safari in the Serengeti?

Balloon safaris are available year-round, but the best time to go is during the dry season (June-October) when the weather is clear, and there is less chance of flight cancellations due to weather conditions.

Is it safe to go on a balloon safari in the Serengeti?

Dress in layers and wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing. Avoid loose clothing or jewelry that could get caught in the balloon’s equipment. Wear closed-toe shoes, as you will walk in the tall grass before and after the flight.

What is the tipping etiquette for safari guides and mountain crews on trips like this?

Tipping is highly appreciated at the end of safari/mountain climb. The size of tips will vary depending on the length and complexity of the trip, the number of staff on the trip and the number of clients on the trip. Generally, groups like to meet together before the end of the trek to discuss how much they would like to tip each staff member based on their individual trek experience. You should prepare an envelope after your trek for your tip money at the Hotel. You can use US dollars, Euros, TZ Shillings or a combination of these. Please ask the Safari/Climbing coordinator at the Hotel for advice.


Mountain Climbs: $25-50 USD per Day per Climber to be shared between guides, chefs and porters.

Safaris: Driver/Guide: $35-50 USD per Day per Car. If it is a camping safari there will be a tip for the cook $10 USD per Day.
