Words cannot explain the magical feeling whilst on this balloon safari. The professionalism of every staff member was amazing. We had a good overview / check in the night before at our lodge. The early pick-up was run like clock work. The pilot & balloon...More

Serengeti Balloon Safari was my highlight of the trip. Firstly we met Jemal at Serena Lodge (where we were staying), next day we woke up at 4.30 and our driver drove very safely in the dark and saw hippos, lion and hyenas on our way...More

All was wonderful in this experience. Staff is attentive and safe. The views are mesmerising. The feeling of quietness during the flight and the expansive views are unique. And we could see all kinds of wildlife. Landing was perfect and breakfast an incredible addition in...More

Fantastic experience. Glass of Champagne on landing (with explanation from pilot why this is tradition) followed by Full English Breakfast (with more Champagne) in beautiful setting of Serengeti.

Very competent pilot who managed to steer us over a whole variety of animals in our approx 1 hr flight. Very safety conscious. Knowledgeable and helpful. A superb experience. Can you believe one participant dropped their iPhone and the support team saw it fall, found...More

This was one of the best things we have done. We wanted to do a balloon flight anyway but being in the Serengeti it seemed the best place to do it. We went on an absolutely stunning day with a very "boring" landing - so...More

Well organized, professional service, felt safe and comfortable, competent pilot, but all in all the sights were very disappointing. Having experienced an amazing balloon ride in Turkey this did not compare at all. Flat plains of grass with nothing of interest to see... Nice breakfast...More
