Experience - Tanzania

Hot-Air Balloon Safari in the Serengeti


  • Observe Africa's wildlife from a bird's eye view

  • Experience the unique Great Migration in the Serengeti

  • The experience can be booked with the "From the Serengeti to Zanzibar: Dream Beaches and Safari” round trip.


If you think nothing can top your Tanzania holiday, we suggest you go for a balloon ride over the Serengeti. Round off the grandiose experience with a breakfast in the bush afterwards.



  1. Tanzania
  2. Northern Tanzania

See the Serengeti animals from a completely different perspective. Feel like a bird, high above the treetops. As the balloon travels partly low, you can observe the wild animals of Africa at close range. It is not uncommon to see herds of buffalos or a family of lions trotting through the savannah - postcard pictures are as good as guaranteed.

You will be picked up from your accommodation at dawn and have the opportunity to see some nocturnal animals on the way to the starting point. At the launch point, you can watch as the final preparations are made and the balloon is filled with hot air. Of course there will be a safety briefing before the launch, and then you will gently glide up into the air and enjoy an overwhelming view over the magical expanse of the Serengeti. Breakfast in the bush at the end of the ride completes the sunrise experience. The excursion lasts about 45-60 minutes. Start time is approx. 6:30 a.m.

The balloon trips take place daily. Pro tip: As it can be chilly in the early morning hours, we recommend that you take a jacket or jumper with you. Headgear and long trousers are also recommended. Most importantly, don't forget your camera and binoculars!

Duration of the trip: 1 hour

Date of the trip: 6:30 a.m.

Services & Notes

As of 01.06.2019, the use of single-use plastic bags is banned and criminalised in Tanzania. The ban also applies to arriving passengers at airports and land borders, both for common duty-free bags and plastic bags in hand or checked luggage.

Strict controls on the admission of hand and suitcase luggage must be expected. Ziplock bags, which are mainly used for cosmetics, are also subject to this ban. Transparent bags, e.g. with zips, which are clearly not 'disposable' but are designed for longer use, are recommended. The use of plastic bags for shopping in the country is also prohibited.
