“A once in a lifetime experience!” Probably the most beautiful balloon flight in the world and the ultimate safari experience. At dawn you take of, rising as the sun rises and you will float in whichever direction the morning wind choose to take you.
Waking up early to prepare for your safari experience of a lifetime, with a departure time no later than 5:00 am you will be transferred to today’s takeoff spot. At the launch site near Maasai Kopjes you will meet your pilot, receive a briefing and watch the inflation of your balloon.
At dawn you take of, rising as the sun rises and you will float in whichever direction the morning wind choose to take you. Even though it is the wind choosing your direction your pilot is the one to control the altitude. A job he do with perfection.
He is well experienced and he know when he should keep you flying at treetop height and when it is possible to go lower and closer to the animals, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below.
Other times he will ascend to 1000’ or more to give you an impression of the enormity and wonderful panorama of the Serengeti. From time to time the pilot must put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners but in between these burns, there is silence apart from the natural sounds below.
The flight is for about one hour depending on conditions, and eventually you must land. You celebrate in the traditional manner with champagne (well, an excellent sparkling wine) before sitting down to a full English breakfast.
Imagine sitting at a table under the shade of a classic umbrella tree on the Serengeti plains. The table is laid with bone china and king’s silver cutlery.
Fresh tropical fruits, warm freshly baked bread and English traditional breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs, mushroom, and tomato are all served by stewards in customary Swahili dress.Around 9:30 am you will arrive at Seronera ready to continue your day's adventures.
