Designed to make a difference...

The iconic experience of Africa, floating gently over the Serengeti in a hot-air balloon...

As dawn breaks over the horizon, throwing light and shadow across the land, the drama of life in the wild unfolds right below you.

This elegant form of aerial travel brings your safari to new heights.

Imagine seeing the wildebeest migration from the sky, or watching a pack of lion cubs playing in the savannah as you float gracefully in the clouds. You drift serenely over the great herds.

…the views were immensely wide.

Everything that you saw made for greatness and freedom, and unequaled nobility

Karen Blixen

The perfect start to any day on safari, and for many, a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

One spectacular morning: Even elephants look up in surprise as you cruise on by

The beauty of the wilderness as seen from the early morning African sky is an unparalleled experience we strongly recommend. You will drift serenely over the great herds as birds of prey swoop past.

It's a truly unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience that will be remembered forever.

The most incredible part of the experience is the unforgettable bird’s eye perspective as you skim over the tops of acacia trees and observe the pristine landscape from above. 

Upon your descent, you will celebrate with a sumptuous Champagne breakfast...

A flight normally lasts around one hour and once you’ve settled back to earth, toast the morning’s activities with a celebratory champagne breakfast – specially prepared under a tree in the middle of nowhere.

The type of balloon ride you get will depend on where you are staying. If you’re at Seronera, the heart of the Serengeti you will go on a balloon ride with Serengeti Balloon Safari. If you’re staying in Western Corridor, you may go on a balloon ride with Miracle Experience, depending on where you are. Both options are reliable and have impeccable safety records.


Wake up at 04h30 am, with freshly brewed tea or coffee delivered right to your tent, and enjoy the fresh, early morning drive to the launch site. If you’re still waking up, enjoy another cup of coffee and watch as the balloon is slowly inflated. A quick and straightforward pre-flight briefing, and before you know it, the balloon is airborne and you’re floating effortlessly above Africa.



Hot air balloon flights last around an hour; however, the entire immersive hot air ballooning experience requires a commitment of approximately 4 hours. That is including a champagne celebration, a champagne bush breakfast, a balloon flight certification,  and transfers from and to your accommodation


Shared balloon accommodate between 6 and 16 guests and the price is US$ 598 per person. Private baskets can be arranged at US$ 9568 per balloon for up to 16 guests. Pricing is valid for this year and is subject to change.
