Hot-air Balloon Safaris

Taking a hot-air balloon ride during your safari will offer you a different perspective on the beautiful landscape of East Africa.

It’s hard not to be awed as you soar in a hot-air balloon with the sun rising behind you and wildlife stirring below.   

If you are visiting the Serengeti or the Masai Mara, you may witness the masses of wildebeest on the riverbanks as they prepare to plunge across on their Great Migration. Floating high above Tarangire, you might look down on the huge herds of elephant and large groups of buffalo.

For photographers, a hot-air balloon ride offers an opportunity to capture incomparable images of quietly grazing animals and the dramatic juxtaposition between land and sky. For the ultimate romantic experience, follow your hot-air balloon safari with a champagne breakfast in the bush.  

This excursion starts very early in the morning, to catch the sunrise. We encourage guests to pack layers, as it can be chilly in the air. Hot-air balloon excursions are also weather dependent. Balloons cannot go up if it is too windy or rainy. Make sure you book in advance to secure your spot. Balloon safaris are operated by third parties.
