This popular excursion is available on all safaris which include an
overnight stay at any of the central Serengeti Lodges and campsites.
It includes a pre- dawn collection from your accommodation for the
trip to the launch site, take- off around dawn and a flight of around
one hour duration.
After landing there is a champane toast, and
then passengers are taken to a very special breakfast served out
on the open plains under the shade of an umbrella tree. After the
meal, everyone is returned to Seronera Wildlife Lodge for collection
by their drivers.
The safari is finished by about 9.30 a.m. so that
this excursion can fit in with any itinerary- even where not all members
of a group want to take the balloon option.
Two balloons, with a capacity of 28 passengers in total, fly once each day. This is the only balloon trip available in Tanzania, and due to its popularity and limited capacity, advance booking is strongly recommended.
