‘SOMETHING REALLY SPECIAL’ The Serengeti Balloon Safari if you’re going on Safari to Africa do it, do it in unassailable style. Balloon Safari is one of the most magically memorable of the Serengeti and Masai mara ecosystem the thrill is indescribable.
Awakened by an early morning cup of tea (around 5.30 am) you will be driven to the balloon take-off point, where you will meet your fully qualified balloon pilot. You’re sipping fine champagne while hovering gently above the treetops of the beautiful Seronera River, or drifting majestically high above the hippo pull, the famous Serengeti Migration or MoruKopjes in the endless plan of Serengeti, just 50 to 80 km North or South of Serengeti, a region boasting some of the best ballooning weather in the world. The balloon will fly for a period of around 45 minutes (trailed by a team of ground vehicles). Then, as the morning sun rises, it will descend to a gentle controlled-landing on the plains. Celebrating your-flight with a glass of chilled champagne, you will receive your ‘flight certificate’ from your balloon pilot, before sitting down to a full English breakfast. Breakfast over; you can then enjoy a leisurely game drive back to the lodge.
The exceptional peace of this unique and almost supernatural view of the world will forever remain as a truly cherished memory.
