A very popular excursion for those of our clients willing to spend that little bit extra, and can be added on to any safari that includes a night in the Serengeti. Only two balloons fly each day, each with a capacity of only 12 people.
Day 1: Commencing with a pre-dawn pick up from your lodge early morning before break fast, and a drive to the launch site, you then enter your hot-air balloon at dawn for a breathtaking one hour flight. As you float over the plains in the increasing light, the pilot will take you up to at least 1,000 foot altitude for a breathtaking panoramic view of the plains. Much of the remainder of the flight will be at a tree-top or even grass-top level for some close up views of the wildlife, landscape, flora and fauna below.
On landing, you are met by the ground support team with a bottle of champagne. Then its off to the breakfast table (bush break fast), which will have been set up under a fine umbrella tree close to the landing spot. You are served a full cooked English breakfast with some tropical additions.The balloon safari is complete at around 9.30 am, and you are returned to the Seronera lodge to be met by our driver-guide. As this is an early morning excursion, you can add this on even if you are in a group where not all members would like to participate.
