Hot Air Balloon, Serengeti, Tanzania

This post is also available in: French

We launched at dawn, rising as the sun rises, gently floating over the plains of the magnificent Serengeti.  This is an experience that has lived with me since this ride.

Upon arrival, we met with our pilot and witnessed the balloon being inflated and prepared for launch.  After a few instructions, we boarded our balloon and lifted off! Rising as the sun rises , the balloon floated in whatever direction the winds of the day were heading over this wonderful area.  One of the best view we had was actually that of the second balloon over the empty land.  Most of the trip depends on the direction of and speed of the wind.

As no two flights are ever the same, our balloon safari was unique.  Even thought we didn’t get to see many animals from above, the view was incredible.
