For me this was the definite highlight of an already amazing holiday. Getting up early in the morning and traveling to the launch site in the dark allowed us to see active animals such as hippos running around that would normally later in the day be hardly visible. The whole process was very organised, professional and safety conscious. The serenity... More

This was one of the best things we have done. We wanted to do a balloon flight anyway but being in the Serengeti it seemed the best place to do it. We went on an absolutely stunning day with a very "boring" landing - so smooth it wasn't felt. The pilot Moses was wonderful and answered everyone's questions. There was... More

Well organized, professional service, felt safe and comfortable, competent pilot, but all in all the sights were very disappointing. Having experienced an amazing balloon ride in Turkey this did not compare at all. Flat plains of grass with nothing of interest to see... Nice breakfast afterwords, but not worth the money... Would not do again.

Been on a flight today with Seringeti Balloon. Amazing. Everything I dreamed of. Expensive but no discounts anywhere. Worth the money though.

It is expensive, it will be gruelingly early, it requires, groveling in the ground to enter the basket, it involves flying, not knowing where you will land... but alas it is like floating in cloud 9, looking over incomprehensibly large herds of game, watching the sun rise in the most incredible setting you will ever witness, and will be surprised...

Pricey but definitely a bucket list experience to glide above the acacias and animals of the Serengeti finishing with an 'Out of Africa' breakfast with a distinctly colonial British tongue in cheek efficiency and sense of humour. Sheffield cutlery, full English breakfast and champagne served by Tanzanians in traditional Swahili dress. The balloon ride was piloted by the Belgian Ramses... More

This was my first hot air balloon ride. What an experience! The balloon glides quietly across the sky. You can't even feel the movement. And the views are spectacular. At the end we landed among the wildebeest and celebrated with champagne The company is very professional and equipment appears well maintained

To top off an incredible safari experience, we took a sunrise hot air balloon ride. The Serengeti Balloon company is a top-notch professional outfit. The operation is run like clockwork and the result is a magnificent overview of an beautiful landscape filled with wildlife, and followed by a hearty champagne breakfast. We had absolute trust in our pilot, Moses, who... More

We went as part of our honeymoon safari trip and debated for a while if it was worth the money. Eventually we decided to go for it and we are so glad we did! The whole experience was something we will never forget, it was so pieceful and smooth and we saw some great wildlife including a couple of cheetahs... More

While on safari in Tanzania, my husband and I decided to book a balloon ride through Top Climbers Expedition. I was overwhelmed by this balloon flight. To see the serengeti and elegante, hippos, lions, hyenas and so many other animals from above, was fantastic. Also the breakfast was great. Thank you, pilot Moses, for the long and smooth flight.
