The Sunrise was truly beautiful
My husband and I had our wedding ceremony in one of Miracle's balloons above the Serengeti. It was the best experience of our lives and we couldn't be more grateful to the staff who arranged everything.

We were collected by Jabir and Freddie in the morning, who gave us the perfect start to our day and made us laugh so much. Their organisation was superb.
We arrived to a lot of happy people at the balloon, celebrating with us and making sure that we had breakfast and warm drinks. They had a heater and proper flushing toilets in the bush, which I couldn't help but be impressed by.

Jones and Rose piloted the balloon and took us over the Mara River and beyond. We got to see so many animals and the sunrise was truly beautiful. Jones entertained us so much with his stories - he's a truly hilarious guy! Rose was the sweetest and so supportive of our elopement.

We landed and were treated to champagne and a fully-cooked breakfast. It was absolutely delicious! The little touches the staff did - like rose petals on the ground and our wedding cake - made the morning so memorable. They sang and danced with us and made us feel like family. We knew it would be amazing but it still managed to exceed our expectations.
Thank you to each and every one of you - it couldn't have been better and we'll remember it fondly forever.

A truly miraculous experience
y mum booked this experience for my brother and I and I can honestly say that it’s one I’ll cherish forever. Being in the Serengeti itself is mind-blowing and it’s difficult to imagine a way to elevate that experience but Miracle Balloon Experience Safaris did just that (pun not intended).

I’ve been on a balloon safari before with a different company in Tarangire some years ago and while that was fun, everything pales in comparison to my time with Miracle Balloon Experience Safaris.

I despise early mornings so the early start made me skeptical initially but it was more than worth it. From the wonderfully knowledgeable guide to the modern, spacious safari car that picked us up just before dawn and transported us to the launch site where we were welcomed by a lovely team who supplied us with some much needed coffee to the simply stunning balloon safari we were taken on by the lovely flight crew all the way to the incredible breakfast we were given - this experience was more than worth the early wake up time.

We had a really delicious bush breakfast and they even made my mum a truly scrumptious chocolate cake as a surprise for her birthday. The loo with a view (you have to be there to understand it) made me laugh but I actually spotted a few giraffes so the safari really is constant.

I also managed to purchase a really warm and stunning green miracle balloon coat which I’ll definitely be wearing a lot now that I’m back in the UK.

While the facilities like the glass-floored balloon were top notch, I’d have to say that what really pulled it all together was the truly pleasant staff and their impressive attention to detail. It’s one thing to have great facilities, but to have to complemented by a team of staff who seem to truly love and care about their job is another thing entirely.

Well done Miracle Balloon Experience Safaris!! I couldn’t recommend you guys enough.

Completely unique experience!
Well organized, precise and efficient. The balloon ride itself is fantastic and indescribable, you just have to experience this to understand! They take pictures, in addition to having a camera attached to the balloon. The crew was efficient and professional and funny at the same time.

Completely unique experience! Fantastic breakfast, with incredibly good food in great variations and quantities in a beautiful location. Do not hesitate to book this activity, you will not regret it.

Simply Spectacular!
This was the first ballooning experience for our group of 4. To soar above the Serengeti in a balloon was just amazing. From the moment we were picked up at our camp, before dawn, and were cozy in a heated jeep, to the wonderful hot coffee and facilities available before the balloon ride, to the spectacular sensation of floating, seeing the magnificent sunrise and gaining a whole new perspective of the landscape and the animals, everything was perfect.

The landing was smooth; the champagne a delight, and breakfast - the best in out 2 weeks - delicious with one of the prettiest table settings imaginable in the middle of the bush! The entertainment, well that's a whole other story! Super fun, and all the Miracle staff are incredibly friendly and professional. Never had a moments concern and were delighted with the whole experience far beyond expectations. Many thanks to our captain and for giving us such a unique and special memory.

Clearly a highlight of our 2 weeks in Tanzania.

Top of the world experience
From the pickup in the wee hours of the morning till the drop off at the airport, our experience with Miracle was top notch.

The balloon experience itself is surreal and the amazing views of the Serengeti plains and the game below just blew our mind. The pilot and the entire flight crew were very professional. The launch site had tea/coffee and a portable washroom, along with heat lamps to keep us warm.

After the balloon ride, which took us over the Mara river, we were treated to a one of kind bush breakfast. The serving staff and chef gave us an experience that we wouldn't forget. The food was delicious, the view amazing and service outstanding.

Well done Miracle, will definitely recommend you guys to anyone wanting a fantastic balloon experience in the endless plains.

Amazing Balloon Safari!
This was one of the best experiences my husband and I had during our honeymoon in Tanzania. We both had never been in a hot air balloon before, so this was incredible. It was so amazing to see everything from a different perspective.

We saw hyenas, zebras, a jackal, giraffes, wildebeest and elands. Captain Barry was so wonderful and so was Joffrey who did our briefing and picked us up from our lodge. We highly recommend this to ANYONE who is interested.

You will not be disappointed. After the balloon safari we had a lovely bush breakfast. The entire experience exceeded our expectations from start to finish. We hope to do it again someday!

Breathtaking !!!! A faire absolument !
Asante Sana !! Thank you so so much. Merci !

This company is just amazing and the billon safari was one of the most amazing things in our life. Super safe, safety briefing and special request. We celebrated my mom and my brother’s birthdays and they made two cakes for them, thank you so much for this attention.

You will have minimum 45 min of safari from the sky, depending of the weather. Nothing to say from the pick up till the end everything was perfect. They pick you up from your hotel (be ready to wake up super early before sunrise) then they lead you to the launch site and there you meet your pilot and enter the hot air balloon. They provide you photos of the ride (photographs and GoPro) so you will have all the memories forever. They also provide water, coffee and tea.

Then when finally in the blue sky you can take all pictures you want, don’t forget your binoculars to spot all the animals in the Serengeti’s early morning life🦒

After the ride they lead you to a breakfast site into the savanna and provide pastries, quiche, bacon, sausage, eggs (you order the way you would like them) and some fruits and juice as well as coffee and tea. Just incredible as everything is super organized and the staff is really friendly and professional.

They can wish birthdays as they did for my family with cakes and songs. Just unforgettable moment and memories forever !

Do not hesitate ! Everything is included and the only thing you have to care about is to take breathtaking photos from the sky.

Asante Sana to all your staff, you made our first day of 2020 unforgettable ! No better place to go and be.

Fantastic balloon trip
I was blown away by the professionalism of out pilot Rose, the ground balloon staff and the catering staff once we landed. The flight was absolutely beautiful, and we touched down in a herd of Wildebeest. The full breakfast and bubbles were an added highlight. This was by far my best ballooning experience to date, and I would highly recommend this company for future travelers.

Wonderful experience! The balloon safari is a way to experience Serengeti from a whole new perspective. Balloons fly really low to land and you can see areas not accessible by the road. We saw a 20+ strong pride of lions, hyenas, countless gazelles running in pattern and many hippos too.

Would highly recommend this activity.

A Birthday to Remember
This hot air balloon ride over Serengeti National Park was the capstone of a three-week adventure in East Africa with my adult son. Everything about it was well done: the early morning pickup at our camp, coffee and instructions at the launch site, pointers and explanations from an experienced captain during the flight (close to an hour and a half), festive champagne upon landing, a delicious breakfast, and follow-up pictures.

Since three of us were celebrating birthdays, the staff sang, danced, and presented birthday cakes to share--a very nice touch. It was a great way to get another view of the animals on this incredible plain. Don't miss it!

Beyond Amazing
I have meant to write a review for the last year. My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of using Miracle for a balloon ride over the Serengeti in early July 2021. The experience from beginning to end was 5 star. I have been to the Serengeti several times but this was my first time experiencing it by balloon. It was easily the highlight of the trip. I cannot put into words how amazing it was. What made it even cooler was the staff and our amazing Aeronaut Captain Moses. Everyone was truly wonderful!
We will be back!

Experience of a lifetime
Safari Over The Serengeti with Miracle Experience Balloon ride was even more magical than I could have imaged. I consider myself afraid of heights and almost didn’t book this adventure but am so happy I did. Our pilot Moses made me feel completely comfortable through the entire trip including take off and landing. His expertise and enthusiasm for his job was refreshing and assuring. As was the experience and service from our driver Richard.

Everyone who had a part in this day seemed truly happy to have us as guest, from the ones who prepared the balloon to the ones who served us such a wonderful Bush Breakfast and all in between. The experience it’s self of floating over the Serengeti and spotting animals was just amazing.

First Class all the way
Absolutely first class experience! Wonderful driver - Ishmael - picked us up, showed us animals on the way and made sure we were taken care of. The balloon ride was perfect, with Barry the captain pointing out lots and lots of animals below. And the breakfast was huge and in a beautiful bush setting with excellent, entertaining staff. All in all, a first class operation. ( And be sure to visit a “Loo with a View”)

Experience of a lifetime
Best hot air balloon experience of my life! Every detail from the pre-flight briefing, the morning coffee in-flight, the loading and unloading, the smooth as silk landing to the FUN celebration breakfast afterwards was perfectly orchestrated.

Seeing the sights from above gives a very different perspective literally! Who has ever seen a vulture egg in its nest on top of a tree, before? We did! We witnessed a hippopotamus running out of the water through the long grasses and got a sense for how fast they move from the bird’s eye view, WOW. It was truly an excursion of a lifetime on the trip of a lifetime. I cannot recommend Miracle Experience enough.

Couples
Received this balloon trip for my birthday 5 days before going (we live in Arusha) and decided to take advantage of this unique opportunity to propose to my girlfriend.

It was seriously last minute stuff. The balloon trip and the whole experience was beyond amazing, but I have to give a big huge thumbs up to the staff who, with less than 12h notice, managed to conjure magic in those endless plains.

They produced a beautiful pink cake with the words 'she said yes!'written on it, the local staff gave us a whole performance after breakfast with traditional dancing and singing and they even flew in fresh roses from Arusha that same morning.

So yes, wonderful wonderful experience, made all the more magical by a wonderful wonderful team who all went the extra mile to make that day extraordinary. Big shout out to our guide Abdul who coordinated the whole shebang!

Amazingly Awesome
Our Miracle Experience started at 4 am when collected from our lodge and driven 2 hours in the dark to the launch site of the balloon flight... During the journey we had our own private night safari with Muhidini & Freddie the drivers / guides and it was a priceless start to what can only be described as one of the most amazing experiences of any holiday...

Watching the sun rise over the Serengeti whilst drinking Kahawa and being briefed by Moses our captain... WOW!! Take off was smooth, the weather warm and the views totally out of this world... Moses ensured an informative journey making sure everyone got to see the sights as he rotated the balloon and I can safely say this is a truly amazing way to see the Zebra and Wildebeest migration routes and see the Serengeti awake to another beautiful day...

The Landing... What can I say about the landing... After been warned it might be bumpy we only knew we had landed when Moses said we could step out of the balloon now... It was so amazingly smooth... Afterwards we drunk Champagne (0%) and enjoyed a full English breakfast and celebration of four birthdays within the group that flow that morning... Miracle Experience does not say it all...

Amazingly Awesome Miracle Experience would be more fitting and we would recommend this activity be included in anyone's Serengeti adventure for sure...

An amazing experience
This was the best thing we did on safari. The ride was early, it was dark and the roads muddy, we had to wait while everyone worked together to help the truck towing the balloon out of the mud. What an adventure, we waited while the crew set up the balloon and a tented toilet with river views.

The ride was magical, mostly low level, just amazing. Capt. Barry was very competent and informative. Our champagne landing and bush breakfast were fantastic, the crew sang for us and had a cake for our wedding anniversary. Just an amazing experience,!

Unforgettable
My husband and I went on Miracle Experience Hot Air Balloon ride while on our Serengeti Safari. We had a wonderful time. Captain Bill was our pilot.

He had a great sense of humor and made for a safe and enjoyable experience. I was surprised to find that he kept our flight close to the ground when the conditions were favorable so that we could spot wildlife. We saw giraffes, wildebeest, cape buffalo, and more.

The champagne toast and the full English breakfast was delicious. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. We were treated with a cake and serenaded by the staff. It was an memory making morning !

Stop everything and do this !!!!
Solo

So...I booked this the night before because I was worried about the high cost plus never being on a balloon, the heights and early pick up I went back and forth for months. I ended up booking due to guides letting me know it’s the best thing to do. So it was just me as no one else in my party wanted to go.I was picked up 4:30am the interesting drive in the dark and seeing different animals.

We arrived at the place for balloon inflating there was coffee/tea set up as watched the balloons and also a rest room. Elephants were close by watched them as balloons inflated. I met the pilot “Bob” who was extremely kind and let me know that I will be ok alone and he can set up in corner nice view. We had to jump in the basket...that was a little complicated but made it in. I never noticed the balloon going up as it’s very smooth and slow.

Once in the air my god. We saw over a 100 hippos, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, other balloons. Sometimes we were higher and sometimes lower that we grazed the tree tops. It was not scary or rocky I can’t believe I almost didn’t do this. It was stunning to watch the sunrise and Serengeti. Bob kept us informed of going high/low what to expect and where we are headed answered all our questions and kept us informed.

The landing was so smooth didn’t feel us hit the ground. We jumped out, had a champagne toast and off we went to a beautiful breakfast set up in the bush. The staff did a nice welcome dance and song and breakfast was great. Tanzanian donuts, eggs made to order, fruit, potatoes, baked beans. Oh the bathroom loo with a view was cute. Bring your phone.

After we were given certificates and dropped off at the visiting center to meet your guide to continue your own game drive. I highly recommend this experience if this is your first time with a balloon ride take the chance while here. Even better if Bob is your pilot!

Stunning Serengeti Safari
This company significantly exceeded our expectations. In the jeep on the way to the launch site, the driver showed us a number of animals only seen in the dark, such as cervil cats and kangaroo rabbits(?). The balloon ride itself was terrific. We saw zebra, wildebeest, lions, lots of antelopes and other animals. We felt safe the whole time. Probably the most spectacular part of the event was the post-ride breakfast.

It was a sit-down breakfast with multiple options and courses, all with linens, menus, etc. It was the fanciest meal we had in our 3.5 weeks in Africa. I have done other balloon rides, and the post-breakfast part is typically continental style with little flair or flavor or comfort.

This was more of a 5-star experience given the circumstances, of course. I can't imagine any organization doing a more spectacular job.

Would definitely do it again
We had to wake up very early to get to the take-off area but we absolutely don’t regret it. The team of Miracle Experience was efficient, kind and welcoming. They also put extra effort in picking us up although we were located far away from the departure point.

During the flight, we could see huge herds of wildebeests, lions, hippos and many more, in one of the most beautiful sceneries we ever saw. Everyone on board was in an excellent mood, and we really had a great time together.

Flying over the Serengeti at sunrise is really a breath-taking experience, and we would definitely do it again. After the flight, we had the pleasure to enjoy a delicious breakfast in the middle of the savannah in a cheerful atmosphere. Thank you so much for giving us such a memorable time !

Amazing breakfast set up
Just finished a short safari in the Serengeti and the absolute highlight was my balloon safari with Miracle Experience. They are a brand new company but our pilot had 10 years experience flying in the Serengeti. The flight was mesmerizing and I felt completely safe.

Our pilot was Tanzanian and very professional and competent. We landed and we’re treated to a glass of champagne and then had an amazing breakfast set up for us in the middle of the plains. Spectacular and not to be missed.

Amazing sunrise over the Serengeti.
We were picked up early by our driver Ishmael. He was nice, kind, and pointed out giraffes, zebras, and wildebeest as they appeared out of the darkness. We arrived at the launch site where we were treated to tea, coffee, and cookies as they inflated the huge balloon (and we were in the smaller 12 passenger basket since there were only the two of us that morning).

They had a very nice Bush toilet, to evacuate the coffee and any pure flight jitters. We had never been on a hot air balloon so did not know what to expect. The pilot put us at ease by joking it was his first flight also (clearly untrue).

We got loaded into the basket as the balloon was prepared and then lifted off! Very smooth and quiet (when the burners were off). Capitan Paco then took us to 7000 feet to meet the sunrise over the mountain. Then we dropped back down to see all the animals. We saw herd of zebra and wildebeest, ostrich, hartebeest, many gazelles and impala. Then after almost 1.5 hours touched down to a soft landing and remained standing up.

The chase team was there quickly for a champagne toast and then to a wonderful bush breakfast. An amazing memorable morning with great conversation and unforgettable sights!! I would say do not miss.

Sighting the wilderness approaching the sky
We were picked up by the guides and staff from our hotel at about 0430. The drive through the national park from our hotel to the balloon launch site during the dark hours of the morning was awesome.

Upon reaching the launch site, we were greeted by the rest of the crew, offered freshly brewed hot coffee/tea to keep us warm and wake us up. Given a brief introduction and induction on the safety features of the balloon safari.

The sky safari is an experience not to be missed. We were able to spot various animals, witness the sunrise and meet new people. After the safari which was about an hour long, we landed to our spot and celebrated with a juice and champagne, then were driven to the bush safari breakfast site. On the way our guide spotted lions having their breakfast and got an opportunity to take a few pictures.

The breakfast was freshly prepared and no complaints. I totally recommend those going to the Serengeti to consider the balloon safari through Miracle experience.

Surreal experience!
The only down side is how early you have to wake up, everything else is going to top your expectations! The friendly staff welcome you with some hot drinks and some cookies while you wait for everyone to get there and go through a safety brief. Berry was our pilot and he was absolutely amazing! The breakfast is such an experience as well from the singing smiling staff, their way of celebrating our anniversary and other’s birthdays, to the Loo with a view, we were so happy that we did this tour with Miracle Experience.

*** if you’re planning on buying tanzanite, make sure to wait until after your flight. When they drop you off after breakfast you can buy some at the tanzanite experience with 10% off. The tanzanite experience gives you a certificate of authentication which is really nice if you’re planning on insuring or making your own jewelry.

Magical experience with Miracle Experience!
Our recent trip to Tanzania on a Safari included a hot air ballon ride with Miracle experience and it turned out to be truly once in a life time experience.

We were picked up at our camp very early in the morning and our drive to the hot air ballon station turned out to be a game drive in itself. We saw a lioness lying in wait for its prey and we saw other animals as well.

When we arrived at the starting point, which itself was in the middle of nowhere, we were offered tea and cookies and we met with the pilot for out trip Captain Jones for a security briefing.

It turned out that on that day, were were the only passengers and hence got a real VIP treatment from start to finish. It was the first time for both my wife and I and we were a bit apprehensive. But Captain Jones' professional attitude reassured us and soon we were up in the air over the Serengeti plains. The weather that morning was great and so not only did we get to see a beautiful sunrise, we were able to fly along at treetop height. We saw several herds of zebras, gazelles, elephants and even hyenas from the balloon. Since we were the only two passengers, we had Captain Jones all to ourselves. He pointed out the animals as we soared and also took several pictures. of us. He also answered all of our questions throughout the ride.

After more than an hour and twenty minutes, we landed very smoothly and again the whole team was there waiting for us. We celebrated our ride with a glass of Champagne and then drove to the Miracle Experience location where a full breakfast awaited us. They team also greeted us in Masai style with a song.

After a great breakfast, the Chef and team surprised us by bringing a cake for my birthday! The whole team sang Happy Birthday in English and Swahili!

All in all, it was a wonderful experience to celebrate my birthday on the Serengeti plains with Captain Jones and his great team from Miracle Experience.

We would whole heartedly recommend that any one going on a Safari to Serengeti should not miss going on a hot air balloon ride with Miracle Experience. It made our Safari experience complete.

We had a really great time with Miracle Experience, during our Hot Air Balloon Safari! It was our first time in a balloon, but the pilots made sure we were absolutly safe and not afraid anymore. We sure will go on a hot air balloon again thanks to our great experience with the Miracle team.

Also, the bush breakfast was great, we had a lot of choice from the menu and also some extra cake for our honeymoon.

At the end, we recieved a nice souvenir, our own certificate for our balloon experience to take home.

We had a great time, absolutely a must when visiting the Serengeti!!

My best ever balloon experience.
I have previously done a Serengeti balloon ride in 2019 (another company) but this one was by far the best. The quality is in the details, as they go the extra mile to ensure a great experience. Photographers on the ground to capture our group photos before takeoff - coffee provided as we wait, and you can take your coffee on the flight!! - camera connected to balloon to take group photos in the air - a wonderful breakfast menu enjoyed after the flight, with local singers providing entertainment...even a nice (and not cheap) certificate as a record of your flight.

I was hosting a photography group, and we were allowed to take our camera bags - with multiple cameras and lenses. I was not expecting that and it was a great bonus.

Our captain Rosa clearly loves her job. She was as entertaining as she was professional.

We greatly enjoyed the experience of flying with Miracle in Serengeti, Tanzania. We had already flown previously, however the Miracle team & the place made this flight really special for us.

The whole Miracle team was extremely friendly and helpful; from David who was our driver, to Captain Matt that made the flight a one in a life time experience, and chef Juma (and all the team) that prepared the delicious breakfast after the flight - thanks to everyone - including the wildlife that made their part as well.

A very professional team with great attention to detail!

Unfortunately we didn’t see any wild animal - but this not the fault of the provider I guess. Great breakfast and awesome pictures, that we‘ve got provided after tour per Mail of Miracle.

Not 5 stars because they are speaking of champagne, that is included in the price. But this is alcohol-free and not good champagne.

Our pilot was fabulous - both take off and landing were smooth and the ride was peaceful and beautiful and it was great seeing the wildlife from above (including the herds of migrating Wildebeest). The bush breakfast was delicious and included a cake for our birthday girl. The entire experience was wonderful - including the photos the staff sent after our trip.

Very nice and smooth flight
Very nice and smooth balloon ride.
Complimentary breakfast and professional pictures.
Team is very dynamic and cheer you up when balloon take off.
The flight certificate is very beautiful and is a nice touch.
Pilot and staff are very welcoming.

Will recommend the company and maybe one piece of amelioration would be to receive the pictures earlier ( it took me about 10 days to receive them but to be fair since they were complimentary, I was still very happy to receive them)

Once in a lifetime
My sister and I had our first hot air balloon experience and it was a memorable one especially that we did it at Serengeti and made more special by Miracle Experience. We were greeted by a dozen lions on our early morning drive to the take off site.

Our pilot Bill was great. We flew close to the ground for most of the flight for us to see animals on the ground zebras, lone elephant, lions with cubs, gazelle, ostriches, hippos. We had great views of Serengeti as well whenever we went up high.

We had coffee available up in the air. After the more than an hour flight, we had champagne and went to their camp for a wonderful breakfast. The staff was great from the time they bid us farewell on take off and greeted us upon landing to serving a delicious and filling breakfast. Go book your hot air balloon with Miracle Experience and you will surely have a great time!

Bucket List dream comes true
We had such a wonderful experience with the Miracle team. Of all of the excursions that we participated in through out our honeymoon safari, the team at Miracle was by far the most energetic, hospitable and welcoming! Even with an early morning wake-up call, our driver Abdul had us laughing and enjoying the experience from start to finish.

One of many memorable moments was flying over a pride of lions. We were able to get much closer than the folks in their safari vehicles, and were able to snap some incredible candid pics. I'll also say that this was on our bucket list for a long time, and one of the main things on our to-do list when we were in East Africa so we had very high expectations--this trip did not disappoint!!

If you're deciding whether to book or not, you definitely should!

Superlative, In all ways. Do it!
Do not miss this unique perspective of the land and of the migrating animals. We even saw a rare big cat along with the lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, hippos, etc. Our pilot Moses was clear, informative, inspiring, fun and obviously competent and well-trained, as was all of the crew.

The views were spectacular, the animals awe-inspiring, and the breakfast was better than anything I've had during my month in Tanzania. Served by a singing and dancing crew! The chef handled my special diet admirably.

The 'loo with a view' is not to be missed. :)

Everything was at the luxury level, which I would suggest is the only way to do this flight (unless you do this routinely and are bored.) Although I cannot imagine how this could become boring.

An Amazing Addition to our Trip!
Have always wanted to visit Serengeti and doing the Miracle Hot Air Balloon experience was just an amazing addition to our trip. Captain Bill and his crew were all very welcoming and all ground staff were absolutely fantastic. We had a great flight with amazing views of the vast landscape that covers Serengeti followed by a lovely bush breakfast after the flight.

The entire experience from when you are picked up from your camp through to the end of the experience is very well coordinated with well trained and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend to anybody visiting Serengeti.

Life time experience must do it
I did balloon ride with my family and we are really happy with the ride and feel like doing it often, would say the Miracle team is really caring and professional in every part of the ride starting from pickup from Hotel till launching site were we get all necessary possible facilities, the briefing by Pilot and his crew, after landing again appreciation by pilot with Champagne and drive to Bush breakfast area.

There also staff ready to welcome and serve best break in the middle of the jungle … I mean there is no stop at all for the services by Miracle team, I would highly recommend to do this ride which is lifetime experience and yes I will definitely do it again and again…

Would like to say to Miracle team to keep up the best service…

Your Must-Do Serengeti Experience!
This hot air balloon adventure was one of the best experiences of our 2 weeks in Tanzania! Very safe & professional, from the pre-trip plan, safety briefing, smooth ride over the Seregeti, to the fantastic & huge 'bush breakfast'. The entire team couldn't have been more attentive & helpful throughout. The icing on the cake was the great photos the team took AND emailed to us.

Bravo & Thank You, Miracle Experience Balloon Safaris!

Most incredible experience in Tanzania
This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life, there truly is nothing like it.

I've been on many safaris in my life, but this was by far the most extraordinary. There was never a dull moment from start to finish.

The staff was incredibly friendly, helpful, and professional. Despite the windy conditions, our pilot, Captain Bill, was outstanding and made all the passengers feel secure and well-cared for. His take-off and landing were incredibly smooth.

The breakfast celebration was especially entertaining and the food was delicious. My favorite part was being in the air and feeling like I was floating in the plains of Serengeti, the experience was almost dream-like.

A huge thank you to everyone at Miracle Experience for making this truly incredible experience come to life!

Emotional - after some hard health threatening years my walking disabled wife trusted me to risk this adventure .. it became a very touchy moment when she did it... thanks to the caring assistance of David and his friendly crew...

Visit of Serengeti
A big thumbs up to the miracle experience team. The whole process from the inquiry to the reservation to the organizing of the flights from Arusha to the Serengeti and back was so seamless. The guide at the Serengeti was very friendly and helpful. He really went out of his way to ensure we witnessed the wild beast migration.

The balloon ride was so smooth and breathtaking. The breakfast in the bush coupled with a surprise cake for my girlfriend’s graduation was well appreciated. I would recommend this team any day.

A wonderful experience from beginning to end. Reassuring contact the evening prior to our flight and print pick up in the morning. The staff were efficient, friendly and really did their best to make every moment memorable. The pilot was professional and informative. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we’re surprised with a song and cake which was the final ‘miracle’ of our wonderful morning.

Thank you.

Miracle Experience Balloon Safari was a great experience. We enjoyed floating over the Serengeti. Observing the animals from above was amazing.

The "safari" was extremely organized from our on time pickup at our lodge to the delicious breakfast served after our balloon experience and our return to our lodge where we had an elephant pass right in front of us.

The best!
We chose to add this to our safari package for the morning of my birthday. We got picked up right on time by Damien from our camp. There was very heavy rain the night before and the morning of. We got the the launch sight and tried to wait out the rain to see if it let up for about an hour. Lucky for us it did enough to be able to go! The staff and pilot were amazing and professional. The views were really indescribable, the pilot had us right above the tree line for most of it providing an excellent view of game watching from the balloon!

My then bf proposed once we landed before the champagne toast with the staff aware they helped him take video and pictures of it. Thanks guys! We were then taken to breakfast that was in a picture perfect setting, service and food was a 10. They brought me a cake with a song and the newly married couple also on the balloon a cake. Damien was a great member of their team that continued to help us get pictures from the engagement afterwards and an excellent driver in the flooded/ muddy roads! I would recommend choosing this company over the rest, worth every penny!

Once in a Lifetime Balloon Ride
The captain was fantastic: clearly explaining all rules for the ride, especially how to get into the basket. He is very personable with a good sense of humor but especially knowledgeable to give the rider a sense of security. He was enjoying himself as much as the riders and provided spotting of wildlife as we flew.
The crew were equally helpful and made the experience easy without any hassles or concerns.

Married in a balloon!
My husband and I had our wedding ceremony in one of Miracle's balloons above the Serengeti. It was the best experience of our lives and we couldn't be more grateful to the staff who arranged everything.
We were collected by Jabir and Freddie in the morning, who gave us the perfect start to our day and made us laugh so much. Their organization was superb.

We arrived to a lot of happy people at the balloon, celebrating with us and making sure that we had breakfast and warm drinks. They had a heater and proper flushing toilets in the bush, which I couldn't help but be impressed by.
Jones and Rose piloted the balloon and took us over the Mara River and beyond. We got to see so many animals and the sunrise was truly beautiful. Jones entertained us so much with his stories - he's a truly hilarious guy! Rose was the sweetest and so supportive of our elopement.

We landed and were treated to champagne and a fully-cooked breakfast. It was absolutely delicious! The little touches the staff did - like rose petals on the ground and our wedding cake - made the morning so memorable. They sang and danced with us and made us feel like family. We knew it would be amazing but it still managed to exceed our expectations.
Thank you to each and every one of you - it couldn't have been better and we'll remember it fondly forever.

Miles High Magic
This was a truly incredible experience from onset to culmination. The crew, captain, equipment and experience are unparalleled. One of the highlights of our trip to Tanzania. There is nothing like seeing the Serengeti from a mile or two above. The views and serenity from miles high are truly unforgettable. Thank you soo much.

We had a fantastic time on the Hot Air Balloon ride in the Northern Serengeti region!! The early morning rise was worth it, the sky was beautiful, we had a quick night time safari along the way, followed by some warm coffee/tea and biscuits.

The hot air balloon ride was Great and we were lucky enough to be with Capt. Jones who was super! When we landed we celebrated with Prosecco and were led to a wonderful breakfast. The team sang and danced and gave us a special tribute as it was our honeymoon. I highly recommend this tour, it was definitely one of our highlights whilst on safari!

Above and Beyond!!!
Amazing, calm, comfortable and easy! Highly recommended for anyone.

I was concerned about safety, but the highly experienced pilot (Moses Msuya) put us all at ease. The ground crew was meticulously trained, and handled everything competently and efficiently. Floating above the Great Migration was an incredible treat. You won't believe it until you experience it, but even the washroom facilities were AMAZINGLY above and beyond! Good people, doing it right.

Fun Morning
Despite the 4.30am start, it was a wonderful morning. A delightful driver picked us up & drove us to the site. We spotted several animals along the way, even in total darkness. On arrival at the launch site, coffee and heaters were available, it was quite chilly.

We met Bob, our wonderful pilot, and loaded into the basket- another interesting experience! Then off we went, Up, Up & Away, in a beautiful balloon! Great animal spotting. Unfortunately we had to come down after a wonderful flight.

Landed to the champagne toast, then off to a fabulous breakfast in the Bush, and the “loo with a view” Great Morning, worth every penny.

100% worth it for honeymooners
We had an AMAZING time with Moses and the Miracle team! This was one of our honeymoon activities and they were incredibly thoughtful by setting up a romantic breakfast table for us, singing for us, and even had a cake to celebrate our honeymoon. I could not believe it.

Additionally, the sky safari experience was 100% worth it. It surpassed my expectations. We got very close to the ground and saw herds of giraffe running, buffalo, wildebeest, and even a leopard! We also saw a cheetah on our way to the bush breakfast.
