A balloon flight means rising earlier than the usual time for a morning game drive. But soon you are rewarded, as the bird’s eye view is the best way to explore East Africa.
A balloon flight means rising earlier than the usual time for a morning game drive. But soon you are rewarded, as the bird’s eye view is the best way to explore East Africa and gain a clear perspective of the scale and sheer size of the landscape. By the first rays of sunrise you will already be up in the air. Most flights last for about an hour, and are followed by a great breakfast, served in the bush.
Fly over the Great Rift Valley, one of the most awe-inspiring sights on earth, join flocks of flamingo soaring high across lakes, volcanoes and forest and spot a wide range of big game. You can also fly over the Amboseli National Park, one of the most popular images of Kenya, with elephants strolling across the plains and the snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in the background or try a balloon safari over the Maasai Mara, Kenya’s most impressive landscape rich in great game which is also considered to be the ultimate ballooning location by hot air enthusiasts.
Recently Tarangire added air-balloon among its available activities, which is definetely a highlight as you can watch the big herbs of elephants and the “upside-down trees”, the baobabs, from a different perspective.
Finally explore Tanzania’s great pride, the Serengeti Park from up high and enjoy the perfect silence. In any case, a balloon flight over East Africa is an once in a lifetime experience that you will always remember.
