I have had the privilege of doing 2 Serengeti Ballon safari`s and 1 Masai Mara Balloon safari. Without a doubt the Serengeti experience is a world apart. Firstly there are only 2 or 3 other balloons, (in the Masai Mara they have over half a dozen), Secondly the breakfast at the end is far better and thirdly you tend to... More

Took a Christmas morning balloon trip over the Serengeti - a memorable experience. Great Service. They pick up you before the sunrise and get you to the balloons as they are being blown up. You are in them and in the air for sunrise. Watching the animals from above is phenomenal. Finally, when you land you are taken to a... More

The hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti was amazing! I was worried the ride would be rough, but it was smooth and beautiful. The views were great, and the breakfast afterwards was a delight. Definitely don't miss this adventure when you are visiting the Serengeti!

We were there in early October during the wildebeest migration and it was just amazing to see the mass of animals moving on a long line almost single file. The pilot did an excellent job of pointing out other animals and we were at a nice altitude so that we could easily see the animals without binoculars (I did use... More

a truly great experience, if the weather is nice. The views are stunning and difficult to find anywhere else. Serengeti is already an amazing experience, this really adds to it. It is very expensive, but from our perspective worth it. Practical: early rise with 4.45 departure from hotel, 6.00 take off, one hour flight. Captain was Canadian (frank) and showed... More

All around our experience with Serengeti Balloon Safaris was truly epic. We booked the trip through another agent, so we didn't know everything that ended up going into the trip, and we were continually impressed. We were staying at Kilima Tented Camp the night before, and we were picked up by a driver at around 430am. Very early, but on... More

I can echo PamR's review word for word, as it makes my experience come back to life as I read every word! This is a tourism attraction in the middle of Serengeti and although it is pricy, its worth every cent or dollar spent. All equipment, motor vehicles, balloons, staff, champagne, food and utensils were extra-ordinary. Each staff member treated... More

It is awesome in the air and a very nice breakfast but it is very expensive. There is a very good view and it is smart how they guide the balloon with air

My first balloon ride ever was this one and it was amazing. The view of the Serengeti was priceless and the breakfast the followed was top notch. I strongly recommend.
