Home – Activities – Balloon Safaris
A hot air balloon safari is a unique and unforgettable way to experience the beauty of Tanzania’s landscapes and wildlife. The balloon safari offers visitors an elevated perspective and a peaceful ride as they soar over the Serengeti plains, spotting wildlife such as elephants, lions, and zebras. The balloon safari is perfect for those looking for a romantic adventure, families with children, or those seeking a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
When to go for a Balloon safari?
The best time for a balloon safari in Tanzania is during the dry season, which runs from June to October. During this time, the weather is cooler and drier, making it easier to fly for longer periods. The dry season also offers the best wildlife viewing opportunities, as the animals congregate around water sources. However, visitors can still enjoy a balloon safari during the green season, which runs from Mid December to March.
Best Places for Balloon Safaris
The Serengeti National Park is one of the best places for a balloon safari in Tanzania. The park’s vast savannahs, dotted with acacia trees and wildlife, offer a stunning backdrop for a hot air balloon ride.
How much does it cost?
The cost of a balloon safari in Tanzania costs around $550 – $600 per person. The price usually includes transportation, a champagne and bush breakfast, and park fees.
Visitors can choose from a variety of balloon safari options, from a shared ride to a private balloon for couples which costs significantly more. Some operators also offer a package that includes a balloon safari and a game drive in the park.
It’s important to note that the balloon safari is weather-dependent, and flights can be canceled due to unfavorable weather conditions. Visitors should plan for a backup activity in case their flight is cancelled.
