HOURS :: BALLOON SAFARI SERENGETI
am, Serengeti Balloon Safaris will collect you from your central Serengeti
lodge or camp, and transfer you by Landrover to our launch site near
Maasai Kopjes. Here you will meet your pilot, receive a briefing and
watch the inflation of your balloon.
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.
The flight is for about one hour depending on conditions, on landing
you celebrate in the traditional manner with champagne (well, an excellent
sparkling wine), before sitting down to a full English breakfast prepared
and served in the bush in 'Out of Africa' style with bone china, linen
table cloths, King's silver etc.
After breakfast you receive your Serengeti Balloon certificate and
we drive you back to Seronera Lodge game viewing enroute. 9:30 am Arrive
at Seronera ready to continue your day's activities.
