All about the 8 Days-Wildlife & Balloon Safari.

You take off at dawn, 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 and will sometimes fly lower-down, at treetop height and sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective over the majestic Serengeti and many great photo opportunities of the wildlife below.

At other times he will ascend to 300 meters (1000 feet) or more so you can take in the wonderful panorama of the Serengeti and get an appreciation for its profound size.

Do I need to book in advance?
We strongly advise you to book in advance to secure your place. There are only three balloons in the entire Serengeti and this exclusive adventure is frequently fully booked.

When is the best time of year for ballooning in Serengeti?
The balloon rides go over central Serengeti (Seronera Valley), where there is year-round animal activity. For those who are especially keen on seeing the wildebeest migration from above, big herds of migratory herbivores can be seen in Seronera from late April through the end of June and again in October through December.
