"A must do if visiting the Serengeti"


We had the unique experience of going on a hot air balloon excursion while recently visiting the Serengeti on safari. You get up early in the morning, before sunrise, and get a ride from someone from the Serengeti Balloon Safari. Steven, our driver, was just the start of a great adventure as our drive included spotting animals and information about the region. We arrived to watch the balloons being filled and got great instructions on safety procedures, etc. Our pilot, Jonathan, was competent, friendly, and informative as we glided above the Serengeti... watching the sunrise and looking at the view from the perspective of the birds. We saw the wildebeest and zebras gathering before their river crossing and numerous other animals. The balloons are raised and lowered to give you both an up close look at the landscape and animals and a higher up view to give you some perspective of the topography. Try and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

"Loved the Entire Experience!"


Let me preface this by saying I fly paragliders all over the world, so I felt that I have seen it all. I thought this would be something more for my kids to revel in the thrill. I was so wrong. This was a fantastic experience for all of us! Taking in this magnificent Serengeti landscape with the wildebeest migration and all of the animals in their full morning glory was absolutely breathtaking! Plus the smooth, quiet air from above was a welcome respite from the loud, bumpy game drives. And the experience didn't stop when we landed. We had a champagne toast where Captain Frank spoke of the history of hot air ballooning. Then we drove a short distance to have a magnificent full breakfast in the open while getting to know the other adventurers. The entire staff was friendly, professional, helpful, reassuring, and funny, as well. I loved every minute of it. Cannot recommend it highly enough!!

"Must-do balloon safari"


Our family of 7 booked this balloon safari and all had a great time. Very professional drivers picked us up directly from our camp in the Serengeti to drive us to the launch site. After a quick safety review we were up in the air…soaring over tons of wildlife with spectacular sunrise views. Incredible experience to see so many animals from a birds eye view. After the hour long flight, we were greeted with a champagne toast then made our way to the beautiful breakfast spot. Breakfast was served under a big acacia tree with a very friendly staff. This was the best way to spend our final morning on safari and highly recommend these guys.

"Excellent Experience"


One of our favorite experiences in Serengeti National Park was taking a hot air balloon ride with Serengeti Balloon Safaris! The entire experience felt like something out of a movie. Hot air balloon rides are something I think that everyone should experience at least once in their life and there is no better place to do that than in Serengeti National Park. It was incredibly peaceful floating in the air over the park as the sun started coming over the horizon. The flight gave us a new and unique perspective to experience the animals. During our flight we saw herds of zebras, wildebeest, gazelles, hippos, and an elephant grazing in the fields below. I never knew doing a balloon safari was possible until we started researching for this trip, but I am so happy we were able to do one. Our pilot with Serengeti Balloon Safaris was extremely skillful and made our flight an unforgettable experience! The entire balloon staff was so friendly and accommodating. After the flight, Serengeti Balloon Safaris prepared an incredible picnic breakfast out in the savanna. I still am not sure how the chef cooked an entire hot meal in such a beautiful remote location! We are so glad that we got to experience this once in a lifetime experience in one of Africa’s most popular national parks!

"Breathtaking Views! Fabulous Experience!"


Spectacular experience and great value for your money. Our family of 5 (3 teens) thoroughly enjoyed everything and the pilot Jonathan was so knowledgeable, experienced, and personable it made me feel very safe as it was my first ballooning experience and was a little nervous. All was explained so well and the staff was absolutely professional and highly trained for the entire event. The scenery was breathtaking and the champagne breakfast really outstanding! Thank you to the wonderful staff and Jonathon for such a memorable experience! Even 3 teens loved! Would definitely do again!

"A Must Do activity!!"


This was so much fun! Our pilot, Johnathan was very skilled and informative. He is obviously a pro as our take off and landings were better than some planes Ive been on. If you are going to be in this area, this should be on your “must do” list. Shaman Mohenda, the representative for the company was informative, professional and friendly. Afterwards, there was champagne or juice and an interesting history of ballooning, followed by a full English breakfast with table cloths, china, and servers that were very attentive.
