This was a magical experience that was well worth the splurge AND the early morning wakeup! The entire staff goes above and beyond to ensure everyone is comfortable and enjoys the balloon ride (with absolutely breathtaking views) and the breakfast to follow. This experience far exceeded any of our expectations. Bring some extra cash if you'd like to tip the crew (you'll want to!) - they are an incredibly hard working group of individuals who work really hard to provide you with the best possible experience.

The hot air balloon was really breathtaking. Many are anxious beforehand, but everything is explained fully and you are left to just observing the beauty and Serengeti landscape with animals below.

Fabulous experience! Ballooning in general is an experience of a lifetime, but ballooning in Serengeti is something you won't forget. Especially with such a great and attentive pilot as Frank Bellantoni, who made sure that all of us had the best views, was an excellent spotter and explainer of the wildlife on our "radars". Champaign and breakfast afterwards were just surreal under an acacia tree in the middle of the savanna! Thanks a lot to the team of Serengeti Balloon Safari!

Amazing experience. The pilot had many years of
Experience and masterfully controlled the balloon. We stayed low to get the best views and just skimmed the tops of some trees. We got steered into where the most interesting wildlife was including hippos. The landing was smooth and we enjoyed their complementary champagne with a story afterwards

The pilot was certified, knowledgeable, and friendly. The staff was very professional. We were able to get a wonderful panoramic view of the Northern Serengeti, then also skim the treetops and get some wonderful overhead pictures and videos of the animals. It all ended with a wonderful champagne breakfast. They did a great job! I'm so glad I went!!
