If you are planning to spend your holidays in Tanzania, you cannot leave the country without having a taste of the Serengeti and its wonders. One of the most frequently asked questions we get is: “What is the best time for a balloon safari in the Serengeti?”.
Well, the month or period at which you decide to visit the national park depends greatly on your availability and what you would like to see. Here are some tips on how to pick the best time for your hot air balloon safari.
Once again, there is no limited time frame for a hot air balloon safari in the Serengeti. All throughout the year, our team will take you to majestic destinations where you will be able to spot the indigenous wildlife of the Serengeti, as well as its rivers and kopjes. However, some periods are more prone to hazardous weather conditions.
For your own safety during those times, our team will get in touch with our pilots to decide whether to reschedule or cancel the outing if they deem it dangerous.
We would thus recommend that you schedule your hot air balloon safari at the beginning or middle of your stay in Tanzania, with enough time to reschedule it in case of unfavorable weather.
Cancellations due to weather conditions, though quite rare, are 100% refunded, but you wouldn’t want to miss this experience of a lifetime. As Terms and Conditions do apply, get familiar with those before your trip.
In light of this, there are some recommended months around the year that are deemed the best for balloon safaris in the Serengeti due to the pleasant weather. This period is known as the ‘Dry Season’ stretching from the end of June to October. This period is also said to be the best for the sighting of animals around waterholes and rivers.
If you are eager to spot some cute cubs, January to March is your season. With relatively low risks of bad weather, you will spot wildebeest calves, lion cubs, elephant calves, and more. Animals usually gather in the southern plains of the Serengeti during this short period where they give birth and feast on the green grass during the Wet Season.
However, if calving represents a beautiful spectacle, it also serves as a reminder of the natural food chain. Calving often attracts predators, such as cheetahs and lions, to the plains where they prey on young, defenseless herbivores.
This period is also an amazing point for amateurs of the fauna. The Wet Season, also called the Green Season, is the perfect time to enjoy the lush green landscapes of the Serengeti and its burgeoning acacia trees.
A hot air balloon Safari in Serengeti will offer you an unbelievable view over this cycle of life and an opportunity to take it all in. Photography enthusiasts will also have the chance to photograph the wildlife and landscape from an angle they never could before.
If you want to witness the great wildebeest migration, also known as the Serengeti migration, there is no specific time to visit the plains, but rather specific areas.
The migration is a dynamic cycle movement across the Serengeti all around the year. From November to December, the herd of wildebeest arrives in the southern plains of the Serengeti. They will remain there until March before moving north around April to find greener pastures.
By May, the herds form columns of wildlife along the Moru Kopjes towards the north, guiding thousands of wildebeest, gazelles, and zebras.
Around June, the herd will either keep on its way north or split with a group moving to the west. Through July and August, the group will resume north through the center of the Serengeti.
The most spectacular and documented part of the migration happens around September when the Wildebeest cross the Mara River on their way.
Our balloon flights in Kogatende, the northern part of the Serengeti, fly over the Mara River. Our passengers have been fortunate to witness the crossing of wildebeests through the river from the sky.
This site is truly unprecedented, with hundreds of animals jumping into the river to get to the other side, often finding death in the jaws of the Nile crocodiles. After this experience, the herds somehow move back south in unison by October. They follow an almost straight path down the eastern side of the park until they reach their starting point around November.
This cycle repeats itself year after year with slight variations. A hot air balloon Safari in Serengeti allows you to track this migration process on their quest for food and fresh water.
It can thus be said that there is no specific time to witness the Great Migration and the native wildlife of the Serengeti. The view will vary from period to period, but the experience is undeniably one of the greatest shows you will have the opportunity to watch. A Hot air balloon Safari in Serengeti is the perfect way to explore this magnificent land in all its beauty year-round.
Over the years, the Serengeti National Park has become one of the most popular destinations for Hot Air Balloon Safaris around the globe. Found in the northern region of Tanzania, the Serengeti, its history and wildlife are the heart of this beautiful country.
For those eager to discover this rich and unique land, a hot air balloon safari is one of the best ways to appreciate this adventure in all its glory and splendor. First-timers, you may be wondering what to expect from this daring experience. Here is an overview of what a hot air balloon safari over the Serengeti has to offer.
Waking up at 4 o’clock in the morning, you will be driven to the take-off site by one of our fleet cars. Once you have arrived, you will be treated to hot coffee and light snacks while our crew sets up for the flight.
Our captain will also give you a short briefing about the logistics of the flight, the safety procedures, and an overview of the trip. You will then be allowed into the hot air balloon for the beginning of your adventure.
You will fly up to about 3000 feet where you will be able to witness the sunrise over the Serengeti, lighting up the winding rivers and chasing the shadows of its endless plains.
As the land comes to life below you, you will have the chance to enjoy and admire the beauty of this foreign world unfolding before your eyes in peace and quiet. The scenery witnessed from the balloon floating above the clouds will undoubtedly take your breath away and strike you as one of the most magnificent sunrises you will have the chance to admire.
As you break through the clouds on your descent closer to the ground, you will get a wonderful panoramic view of the savanna and plains scattered with famous kopjes rocks, which are chunks of metamorphic bedrock jutting out of more recent volcanic soil, bushes, and streams where animals rest, hunt and live.
This sanctuary is home to a flourishing ecosystem of wild animals sharing these lands, such as antelopes, hyenas, lions, crocodiles, and eagles among so many other species.
You will be able to track and follow the trails of the waking white-bearded wildebeests, the hordes of elephants drinking and bathing in the streams, giraffes galloping in the prairies and if you are lucky, even spot leopards lounging in low trees.
During the flight, you will be served several types of juices and hot beverages while our expert pilot guides you along with the different landscapes and sightings, as well as the history of this kingdom full of miracles.
As you soar above an ocean of grassland, absorb the magnificence and magnitude of the national park. Just before landing, a group photo will also be taken from the sky as a token of your time with us.
Once the pilot safely lands the hot air balloon, a car will come to pick you up from the landing site to take you to a luxurious breakfast in the bush. On your way there, you will be able to enjoy the Serengeti and its wonders from the ground too, capturing the wildlife and scenery from another angle.
At the site, you will be immersed in the mesmerizing culture and energy of Tanzania through our traditional welcome dance and song from our team, which you are more than welcome to join and celebrate.
You will then be led to the 5 stars worthy breakfast table where you can choose from all the different varieties proposed in our menu and even get delicious eggs customized to your liking.
Our cooks will happily prepare these succulent meals of your choice made from the finest ingredients, while you toast with champagne at “Maisha Marefu”, meaning “To a long life”. The crew will then continue to entertain you with songs and dances particular to African origins and traditions.
After the festivities, you will be driven back to your hotels or residences and left to look back on this miracle experience and the wonders you had the opportunity to witness.
We will be sure to send you pictures from your trip so that you can appreciate the memories of your Miracle Experience long after it is over.
