The Balloon Ride over the Serengeti was a once in a lifetime experience. Though I am slightly affraid of heights I never felt unsafe. The introduction is very detailed and the crew extremely experienced. From the first second you know that they have everything under control.

The flight itself is just magical. First you get to see the sunrise followed by a large variety of animals. Our pilot Mohamed was constantly adapting the height so we could see everything. As well he is a big entertainer and has a great sense of humor. If I get the chance to ever do the flight again, it will be with him.

After the landing we have had a glass of champagne with the crew followed by a fantastic breakfast.

It was a day I will surely never forget!

Some amazing moments of quiet and peacefulness. Some very hot blasts of gas and a very rough landing. Definitely worth the experience. The breakfast after was great, beautiful set up in the bush. Not much wildlife. Loved the loo with a view

We had an amazing time in the balloon safari. We were reluctant at the beginning because it is quite expensive, but the sights we saw and experienced were just amazing. Right off the bat we say a lion pride at a watering hole. Then we saw a lion that looked straight at us. We saw hyenas, hippos, and even a leopard. The staff was very nice and the pilot was very kind. My 8 year old had a great time as well. He uploaded a video of his experience if you are interested in seeing roughly the sights and sounds before making the decision to splurge you can check his channel on YoutTube aztravels111.

A first class experience. Pick up from our lodge and saw some great nocturnal animals during the drive to the launch point. Very smooth and well organised, we felt everything was planned to a tee.

The balloon ride itself is worth the money. We saw lots of wildlife and took in the great views of the Serengeti Plains.

The pilot Paul was such a pleasent guy, very experienced and made the experience pleasurable and personalised for all guests.

Would highly recommend.
