About

Each day at dawn the sun rises on the Tanzanian plains and its rays start to emanate a basking heat as your balloon lifts you above the golden plains to witness an aerial view of Africa’s magnificently sublime landscape.

Imagine sailing gently across the wide plains, the crisp morning air dancing in your hair. As you glance down below you will be shadowing herds of wildebeest, zebra, antelope, giraffes and elephants as they make their way across the early morning sun kissed plains. You may be lucky enough to spot a lion or cheetah scouting for an early morning opportunity.

The balloon pilots are committed conservationists and will share their knowledge of the area and wildlife with you making this a truly unique and informative experience.

The exact direction and duration of the flight depends on the wind and weather conditions of the day but the average flight time is about 1 hour. Part of the flight will be at an altitude of at least 1000feet for magnificent panoramic views of the plains, another part will be at tree top height for unique viewing of wildlife.
