Serengeti balloon safari, Tarangire balloon safari, Selous balloon safari
In most days, we launch from the historic grounds of the Endless plain Serengeti National park, beautiful Tarangire National Park and Selous Game reserve, in the heart of African Bush of Tanzania. As we rise above the Kopjes stones of Serengeti, panoramic views open up of the National parks, a unique views of plain full of African wildlife at tree top height. Hot air balloon ride is must taste experience. With favorable winds aloft the balloons can climb to higher altitudes where the average ride time is about one hour.
The balloons are equipped with ‘whisper’ burners to minimize the noise of the burns necessary to navigate the Serengeti balloon safaris. Periods of ‘burn’ are quite a small proportion of the flight so there are many intervals of complete silence. The flight is totally smooth and feels windless since the balloon is travelling at wind speed. The variety and numbers of animals and birds seen will vary with the time of year, conditions and luck but everything that is seen is from an original and exciting viewpoint.
The pilot will land the balloon near one of the game trails and then share a champagne toast with you. The retrieve crew (who keep in contact with the balloon by radio) will arrive to collect you and pack up the balloon. The rest of the crew, after establishing the landing area for the balloon, will have set up the breakfast table under a tree in a convenient spot on the plains.
A freshly cooked full English-style breakfast is served in an unforgettable setting and then, after receiving your certificate, you will be taken back to Seronera Lodge or other designated central Serengeti accommodation property and arriving about 9:30 a.m. You will have a rest and relax at the lodge while reading your novel or swimming in the lodge pool. After having your hot lunch at the lodge you will meet again your Tanzania safari tour guide for an afternoon game drive by a 4WD vehicle.
The bottom line of having a game drive using a vehicle is to explore Serengeti National Park by land and experience the beauty of its plain and savannah vegetation let along the vast varieties of wildlife and birdlife that Serengeti is famous of.
All the aspects of this Tanzania Serengeti balloon safari adventure combine to become an unforgettable memory – possibly the highlight of many passengers’ safari!
