Balloon safari in Serengeti
Serengeti balloon safari is a fantastic activity once in a lifetime experience, particularly suitable for a bird’s eye view, game viewing experience on your Serengeti wildlife tour in northern Tanzania. Hot air balloon rides leave from three sites in the Serengeti national park. In Central Serengeti, wildlife gathers year round in the Seronera River Valley where there is permanent water.
Serengeti Migration passes through around May and June. The Western Serengeti includes the Grumeti River, scene of theatrical crossings during the Serengeti Migration in June and July, when hundreds of thousands of Serengeti wildebeest, brave the giant Nile crocodiles, and many perish while others choose alternative route to avoid the dangerous river.
In South Serengeti plains, the wildebeests from the Serengeti migration assemble from December onwards, to calve in February, producing more than 8000 newborn every day on a three week marathon, a sight from Serengeti balloon not to be missed on your personalized nature travel to Serengeti.
The plains of the Serengeti are particularly suited to balloon flights which are particularly convenient, letting you get aerially closer and distinctly accessible to the action than you could be by a game viewing safari vehicle
