My wife and I really enjoyed our experience with the Serengeti Balloon Safari! The staff was very kind and informative, and I felt safe the whole trip. You end with a champagne toast, as well as breakfast in the bush. The staff educates you on...More
Each detail from pickup at our camp to the champagne breakfast out in the bush was handled professionally. Frank, our pilot, was so professional and experienced! He was incredibly helpful in his instructions prior to take off, and during our flight, he helped us to...More
This was an unbelievable experience!! My dad was very nervous about heights and doing this in general. All of his fears disappeared once we took off. I did not realize that throughout the flight, we went up and down in altitude. At some points, we...More
air and earth crew all very professional!! we had breakfast under a tree in the middle of the savannah, great sensation!!! I was a little worry about the landing but as there was no much wind, it was very very calm. It is expensive but...More
Yes, this is super expensive ($600 per person) but it is also a great experience. We flew right over a cheetah and saw many other animals as well. The balloon pilot and the ground crew were very professional and seemed to emphasize safety above all....More

After a clear and professional safety-instruction of international pilots...More
Very professional and experienced crew delivered a marvellous morning in a hot air balloon from pickup at our campsite to the delicious champagne breakfast. Loved every minute! Just a shame we didn’t see any big animals, but the experience was still worth it!
From the time we were picked up from our lodge our experience was nothing but professional. On our arrival our pilot briefed us and prepared us for our adventure .As we floated above the ground and witnessed the sunrise and Zebras and antelope grazing below...More

I am sorry that you found our baskets too cramped Edward. Our baskets are manufactured by the 2 leading hot-air balloon manufacturers in Europe and specified for 16 passengers. We are discussing with them about increasing the size to give passengers a little more room...More

Thank you so much for your enquiry!
We fly from Central Serengeti (throughout the year) and the Western Corridor (Jun-Oct) or Ndutu (20th Dec-31st March) every morning and the price is $599 per person all inclusive in a shared balloon. This includes from your camp or lodge (early!) and transfer to the launch site for a dawn take-off. After a wonderful flight of approximately 1 hour, we will give you a champagne toast on landing and then a ‘full english’ breakfast under a tree before returning you to your safari guide at the Seronera Visitors Centre or some other mutually agreed location.
The price does not include park entry fees, which are usually covered in the tour operator package.

Hello AJ. Thank you for your inquiry. You will first need to travel from Nairobi (Kenya) to Arusha (Tanzania). You have options to reach the Serengeti National Park, either by road or by air. You will need to stay the night at a lodge or camp within the national park as we launch at dawn. I wish you a wonderful safari! Tony

Hi NKerba, thank you for your question. Our baskets carry 16 pax and 12 pax. They are divided into compartments for 2 or 4 people and all afford a direct outward view. We fly many professional photographers and film makers. A hot air balloon provides a stable platform for photography and of course a unique perspective on the scenery and wildlife. We expect the great herds of migrating wildebeest to be in Southern Serengeti at your time and the possibility of the females dropping the first calves! Safari njema! (Swahili - Have a wonderful safari)!
