John Corse the MD of Serengeti Balloon, said “This trip is incredibly special, it has never been done before and will offering a truly rewarding way to enjoy the Serengeti without spending so much time in vehicles. To string together a safari from east to west by balloon and on foot is completely unique and makes the most of the two best ways to make the most from safari.” Each morning, you will be flown by hot air balloon to a brand-new wilderness spot from where they can explore and discover the area with both walking safaris and traditional wildlife drives, escorted by the most proficient guides every step of the way.

Serengeti Balloon Safaris are the oldest and most respected hot air balloon safari company in Tanzania, they have flown over 250,000 guests in their 30+ years of operating and have always been the pioneering company. Never before has such a journey been done, but John and his team have dreamt about flying this route for years. “Balloon Safaris are usually a once in a lifetime bucket list experience and people mostly choose to enjoy it for one morning on their safari. We’ve seen guests lately ask to go again on subsequent days and decided that we should just try this idea!” added John.

Renowned for its exceptional beauty and remarkable biodiversity, the Serengeti is undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary places on Earth, with so much yet to be discovered by tourists. This is an incredible opportunity to explore these hidden corners from both the ground and the skies. Highlights of this experience include panoramic views while flying up to 2,000ft above the iconic Serengeti and close-up wildlife encounters while flying at grass level.

“Balloon Safaris are truly spectacular, they offer the combination of hot air ballooning, which is an incredible experience in its own, floating over the countryside in the oldest form of manned flight, with the fresh air in your face as you gaze at all around you is quite amazing. To do this over the world’s most famous national park, with the chance to see this incredible environment as well as its abundant wildlife all from above, and over areas that are inaccessible from the ground, makes it a double rewarding experience.” John added.
