Drift over the savannahs of Africa
Hot air balloon safaris are a once-in-a-lifetime experience which is a must for those going on safari
Going on a safari holiday is an astounding and exciting experience in its own right. Usually heading out for early morning and late afternoon game drives searching for magnificent wildlife either by game drive vehicle or on foot.
However, there is one experience which offers you a bird’s eye view of the beautiful African landscape – hot air balloon safaris offer a unique perspective allowing you the chance to see wildlife from the skies as you drift tranquilly over the wilderness.
Balloon safaris often depart just as the sun begins to rise, giving you an awe-inspiring perspective as light brings a start to a new day with the vast plains of Africa stretching as far as the eye can see and the wildlife.
A balloon safari flight generally lasts around an hour but the experience doesn’t stop when you land. It’s traditional to celebrate a successful flight with a wonderful champagne breakfast in the bush before heading back to your safari camp enjoying a game drive as you make your way.
Balloon safaris are synonymous with the grass plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania and Kenya’s Masai Mara, however there are plenty of other wildlife destinations where you can enjoy the experience of drifting gracefully over Africa. The arid Sossusvlei with its remarkable towering red sand dunes in Namibia, the plains of Zambia and Uganda’s wonderous Murchison Falls National Park are just a few more examples of where you can experience balloon safaris in Africa.
