Easily incorporated into any itinerary.
Balloon safaris can be incorporated into your itinerary during any month of travel. The Central Serengeti launching site (available year-round) is a great option any month with abundant resident animal sightings and spectacular scenery. The South Serengeti launching site offers the opportunity for an aerial view of the Great Migration on the open plains from mid-December to early April and similarly at the West Serengeti launching site from roughly mid-May to early July.
You will be picked up at 5.00 am from your lodge and will be driven to your awaiting balloon at the specific launching site. If you have selected any of our private luxury camps, your driver will transfer you to the nearest lodge where you will meet up with the other guests. Keep an eye out for nocturnal predators as you may encounter them returning from their nightly hunting forays on your game drive to the launching site. Arrive at the balloon-launching site for a quick briefing from your pilot. As the blush of dawn glows to the east, you will take off and float above the vast Serengeti.
