I COULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS MORE!!! BOOK IT!

I can promise that you will not be disappointed! Every single minute of our experience was so cool and the staff made sure we felt safe, cared for, and special. You are in a balloon with other people, but there is more than enough view to go around and the sunrise is breathtaking. I not once felt like I was in a crowded tourist bin.

Captain Moses was such a cool guy and you can tell his passion to share what he loves is a priority. We were so pleased we added this to our itinerary for our honeymoon. Other couples we met on Safari were so bumbed they had missed out after hearing us talk about it. We had zero issues being cold or getting motion sickness. Bring a camera and just do it!

A Must Do!!
This was a wow experience! Very good company. They picked us up at our camp on time and took us to the location for lift-off. The pilot Bill was very great at explaining everything to us. It was a great smooth ride. After landing we did a champagne toast and were taken to a location for the best breakfast I had while in Africa! And they have the best camp toilets that I have ever used too!

Book with Miracle Experience! You will not be disappointed!

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.

Experience of a lifetime!!
This activity was the splurge special treat of our honeymoon treat. We both had it on our bucket list to go in a hot air balloon and the Serengeti seemed like the most perfect place to do it. Although the activity is expensive (hot air ballooning is not cheap) we thoroughly enjoyed every second. The team ensures the service you are given is luxurious in every possible way.

Our experience started with a visit from Brown our driver for the experience. He met with us and explained exactly what would happen and was able to answer any questions we had. The next morning he met us for coffee. It was an early start but also a rare opportunity to do a game drive whilst it was still dark. Brown helped us spot Hyenas and Hippos before dropping us at the take-off spot. There were coffee and biscuits available here and a chance to use their rather nice loos. We then met with our pilot, Rosa. She gave us a safety briefing and explained how it would all work.

Rosa was a fantastic pilot. She was able to help us spot different animals. We saw an ostrich, Hippos, Hyenas, gazelle, and buffalo. Then landed next to a group of zebra. Flying over the river filled with hippos was a highlight for me along with the coffee at 500ft above sea level.

Once we had landed we were told a story about the first hot air balloon and then enjoyed a champagne toast. This was followed by the most incredible bush breakfast. On route to our bush breakfast, Pilot Rosa joined us in our vehicle and told us the most incredible stories of her ballooning experiences. We think you should write a book!

I cannot begin to explain the quantity and quality of the breakfast. There was every type of breakfast food you could imagine. The place even had a loo with a view! We were treated to a special honeymoon song and dance and given a cake to cut. The team at Miracle really went above and beyond to provide an experience of a lifetime. Special thank you to Rosa and Brown for everything you did on what was my favorite day of our honeymoon.

Out of this World!!!!!
Couples
We (my husband and I) had the best time in the sky and also on ground with Miracle Experience and their entire staff. This was our first time on a hot air balloon. The staff and pilot briefed us very well before the flight. Serengeti is an amazing place and viewing it from the sky is another out of this world experience.

Seeing the early morning sunrise, to seeing the endless beautiful plains, lovely animals, rivers and villages below us was breathtaking a experience. The pilot was skilled and well experienced and a funny man as well. The landing and take off was super smooth. after we landed we popped a nice champagne bottle and celebrated. It was wonderful. We absolutely loved the concept of bush breakfast. the breakfast was so yummy and there was so much variety.

It was so relaxing to sit in the bushes, having yummy breakfast and a cup of coffee and watching the zebras (which ever close by) and endless plains of Serengeti. The ground staff were so welcoming after the balloon safari. They sang songs and did a little dance as well. Individual and group pictures were taken and also sent to us by email. We also received certificates for completing the flight. Everything was PERFECT.....

We highly recommend them.

There is no better way to see Serengeti from in the sky! Captain Moses and his crew provided us with an epic experience. The flight was amazing, Captain Moses pointed out all of the important things to see and gave us a smooth landing. Breakfast was delicious and eating out in the open was the perfect ending to a once in a lifetime experience.

Unforgettable Balloon Ride
This was an unforgettable experience! Our pilot was Bill and he was so professional.
He explained everything before we went up and then while in the air pointed out so many animals as well as landmarks. Soaring over the Serengeti in the still of the morning couldn't have been more beautiful! As we prepared to land Bill explained just what we should do and the landing was so soft it was hard to know that we were again on the ground. The breakfast was delicious and very prompt. This is definitely a trip to do when you are in the Serengeti and especially with Miracle Experience!!

Serengeti from 1200 feet in the air looks very different from Serengeti at ground level. The balloon safari was a terrific experience, and a bird's eye view of Serengeti was fantastic. The flight was smooth and enjoyable and the lovely bush breakfast was the icing on the cake. I highly recommend it.

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!

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”)

Balloon ride over Tarangire Park
We took a balloon ride over Tarangire last weekend with our children (5, 8 and 10 yrs) and it was honestly one of the best things we have ever done. At first I was a bit nervous taking our young kids, but as soon as we met with Captain Moses at the balloon site we felt so save and in great hands.

It was truly a beautiful experience from start to end. You'll be pleasantly surprised with how gentle the floating sensation of being in the balloon is. After landing, you will be served a luxury breakfast with views over the Tarangire river.

Thank you Miracle Experience, this will be a special family memory which will last forever.

Feels like if you are a bird
We had a once in a lifetime balloon safari with Miracle Experience. Everybody was fantastic, from the smile of the driver that comes to pick you up to the jokes of the pilot and the service at breakfast.

Of course flying over the Serengeti is amazing, when the burner is off it really feels like if you are a bird.
The company is new and you really can feel that they picked the newest, safest and most comfortable equipment.

If you are in Serengeti, you should do a balloon safari and if you decide to do one go with Miracle Experience...

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!!

The crew was enthusiastic, friendly, and provided us safety information. The ride was wonderful, captivating, and peaceful, observing the landscape and herds of animals from the air.

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…

Fantastic balloon ride… Thank you!
Thank you Hasnain, Barry and team!
The kids and I had a fantastic balloon ride over the Serengeti and it was great to have the balloon to ourselves! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

From the guide, David, who picked us up in a miracle vehicle….on what was a “night drive” to the balloon launch site ….we saw lions, buffaloes, hyaenas….to Barry, our pilot and the crew …. All a great, warm and super friendly team!
So much information relayed to us by Barry with his great sense of humor added to the lovely experience we had.

Indeed it was magical up there as the sun rose over the vast unending plains teeming with wildlife. A different perspective, a different experience, silent balloon and we felt very safe.

Miracle balloons are “different” …. They have Glass floors, modern baskets with binoculars, and the breakfast too was superb!

Their “loo with a view” is indeed a super touch as is every little detail you will see that Miracle has - which “must” be experienced…. This makes it truly a “miracle experience”.
An absolute must addition to any safari itinerary!!

Amazing experience! The flight was beautiful and so smooth - I wanted it to last forever. We glided low along the river and watched a baby hippo jump in, then climbed higher to get an incredible view of the northern Serengeti. Every minute was amazing.
It was an early morning but well worth it, the sunrise was beautiful. Getting in the basket seemed intimidating, but the ground crew was fantastic and made it so easy. Captain Jones explained everything so well and made the trip so fun. The landing was smooth and easy, and then a quick drive to breakfast. The ‘bush breakfast was delicious and so much fun. The whole experience was unforgettable and I would highly recommend it.

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!

Amazing adventure!

My wife talked me into this and I'm so glad she did. Felt perfectly safe the entire trip and we had a blast, didn't want it to end. Giant balloon, skilled pilot, awesome crew. We saw many different animals below. Ended with a champagne toast in the bush.

What I didn't expect was the breakfast party after the ride. Met us as balloon landed and shuttled us into the bush for breakfast. Met with white tablecloth service by handsomely dressed staff. Eggs to order and all the fixings.

Followed up with a cake for each of the couples. mine congratulated me for retirement. The great staff sang and danced for and with us, and we fell in love with them. Magical Experience, create the memory,

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.

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!

Magical experience - a unique sensation of peace
My early morning balloon ride with the charming Pilot Bill of Miracle Experience in the Serengeti was just magical.. the only way to feel such a smooth, peaceful and gentle effortless glide is to get up there - there's no other way to experience that sensation. Seeing the animals and terrain from above was just a bonus! My group all agreed that the total experience is worth what seems like a hefty price - given the large ground crew, the quick pick up from where we landed - more than 20 or so miles from the "launch site," the traditional landing toast, and the abundant breakfast. Afterward, we learned that a significant portion of that fee actually goes to pay Tanzanian taxes.

A truly miraculous experience
Now that’s out of the way…WOW, WOW, WOW.
The BEST and WARMEST welcome I think we’ve ever received started off a truly fantastic experience. We had been driving from Ngorongoro for hours after an early start to the day.
We had 10/10 service and one of the best meals we had on our entire trip, right there in the middle of the Serengeti. And because we arrived late, we had it all to ourselves!
The salads were exquisite, the meats succulent and delicious, as course after the course, we were served with utmost courtesy and attentiveness.
Team leader Albert set the perfect tone with his warm, calm and reassuring leadership, while chef Issa led his team to create a fantastic menu, and Yacob and the team of waiters were just great.
We are so happy to have had this truly unique and spectacular experience!
It should not be missed and is an excellent change from the packed lunches!

Once in a lifetime views

Miracle Hot Air Balloon was quite simply amazing. The balloon ride itself is obviously the highlight… a chance to see so many views and animals at different vantage points. We were lucky enough to have captain Barry fly us right over a tree as monkeys looked on and see a herd of Buffalo roaming.





Like safari rides where animals are present aren’t guaranteed but captain Barry has an eagle eye to point them out and quickly maneuvers the balloon as quickly as possible for better viewing. Beyond the balloon ride, Miracle addresses every single detail. It starts with an evening briefing covering all necessary information for the next day.





This allows for a quicker time in the morning getting on the balloon after being driven to the launch site by one of the staff. At the launch site, hot beverages, snacks, heaters, and restrooms are available making for a comfortable morning after an earlier than usual wake-up. Following the flight, an amazing breakfast is provided with additional beautiful views to cap off a memorable day.





Cannot recommend this experience enough!

Life changing
This was truly a once in a life time experience. Barry and his brilliant crew did give us the experience of a life time. It was first class all the way from the booking to the pre meeting the day before the ride.

Muhidini was fabulous. He was a brilliant tour guide on the journey from our camp site to the ride site. We saw a pride of baby lions at 5.15am and he patiently waited for us to take all the time with pictures etc. The ride itself was breathtaking. The start of the ride was so smooth I did not even realise I was sailing in the sky. Being up in the air and having that safari from the sky was like seeing a part of heaven.

We saw many animals and Barry was fabulous at explaining everything. The landing was equally smooth followed by champagne and then what I would call a 5 star breakfast in the bush experience. The trip was a gift to my husband for his birthday and he even hot a birthday cake a d lots of singing, making it really personal.
The loo with a view was brilliant. Absolutely worth every penny paid.

This experience was a trip highlight! The entire operation was smooth and professional, with excellent facilities (including washrooms) and friendly staff that inspired confidence.
The balloon ride was exciting at first and then peaceful and beautiful. We saw about nine different kinds of animals from 300' in the air.
It's a great way to get perspective on the large herds. The breakfast was very nice, with some fun singing by the staff and celebrations of special events (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.)

We loved the balloon flight: everything was perfectly organized, from the pick-up at our camp, the catering and the restroom at the start place, the pictures during the flight, and the celebration and the breakfast after landing. This all contributed to an unforgettable moment.
The pilot, Capt Jones, was mastering his balloon with great precision, at a moment we flew just a few meters above the Mara river and could clearly see the hippos. The landing was smooth and at no moment did we feel unsafe.

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 !

A highlight of our trip to Tanzania
An amazing way to experience the Serengeti as it will give you a completely different perspective of the landscape and the animals.
We had a great ride with Captain Rosa on a gorgeous morning in March. The takeoff and landing were both smooth. I had a horrible landing on a balloon ride in Kenya a few years ago so I am always a bit apprehensive about the landings, but Captain Rosa nailed it.

We had a lovely little ceremony with champagne when we landed which was quite fun. The view from the balloon was just breathtaking and Captain Rosa would periodically do a gentle 360 spin so everyone had a great view of things. Shortly after our ride we were emailed a link to Dropbox with lots of pictures that had been taken during our flight which was a nice surprise as other companies want you to buy the pictures instead.

The facilities for breakfast were quite nice. The bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. Breakfast is delicious and more food than you can possible eat so you certainly won't leave hungry.

Our driver, Muhidini, was waiting for us the morning of our flight and we had great fun on the drive to the site and back to our camp. He introduced my sister and I to some of the latest music in Eastern Africa on the drive over.

Our balloon ride was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it to anyone. It will be one of the highlights of your trip to Africa.

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.

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!

From apprehension to Zen
I was apprehensive about going on a hot air balloon ride (isn't that thing only made of some sort of fabric and a wicker basket!?) However, the team at Miracle experience especially our guide Ramadan and our balloon pilot Captain Moses were really generous in ensuring that we were all at ease.

After a safety briefing, we were off! There are no words I can put on here to sufficiently describe the experience, but for me, all the anxiety I felt about ballooning vanished the moment we were off the ground. Drifting over the Serengeti in a hot air balloon was an oddly Zen experience that left me taking in the magnificent landscape, with the added bonus of animal sightings from the sky!

The winds were in our favor and after a smooth landing (thanks mostly to the expertise of Captain Moses), we were welcomed back on solid ground with a glass of champagne and thereafter driven out for a wonderful and tasty breakfast in the wild, not forgetting the thoughtful certificate given to all guests in a small ceremony. To enjoy and make the most of this experience, I recommend going for Miracle Experience, they are striving for excellence!

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!

Serene balloon trip over the Serengeti
Amazing experience floating over the Serengeti spotting the giraffe’s, zebra’s, elephant’s, Hyena’s and topi as well as watching some of the Wildebeest migrating.

Captain Barry was very knowledgeable and made the flight fun. The celebration drink at the end of the flight was a lovely touch and the breakfast afterwards was delicious, a truly great experience from start to finish.

Great experience!
Such great fun! Up early (before sunrise) to head out to the launch site. Watched the balloon being filled. Hooked into the basket and then the ballon was heated and we were off for a peaceful drift across the plains. Our pilot was great taking up for broader views and down for close up of the herds of animals.

Massive number of elephants, Cape buffalo, zebras and impalas.

Then a champagne toast upon our return then off to a wonderful hot breakfast.

Absolutely amazing!
The best thing you can do during your visit to Tanzania! The views were spectacular, an amazing experience and the staff made it even more wonderful.

Richard our driver and our Captain made us feel so special throughout - it really was a once in a lifetime experience.

The champagne landing and breakfast in the bush were the icing on the cake.

If you are considering it, go for it! You won’t regret it!!

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.

Floating over the Serengeti
Great experience, start to finish. It was fun watching balloons being inflated and being obstructed on how to enter the basket and prepare for ‘lift-off. Floating above the animals and tree tops was breathtaking.
The champaign on landing and the following breakfast was great. I had recently celebrated a birthday, so there was singing while bringing in a cake!
My only recommendation is to provide assistance for folks (like me) needing help getting out of the basket!

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!

WOW WOW WOW. No way can I explain the total experience we had with Captain Moses Msuya (our Balloon Pilot). We hit the jackpot with him. The trip to Serengeti was already a trip of a lifetime, but it's a vacation within a vacation when you are with Moses in a hot air balloon. The hot air balloon ride was simply magical and 100% the highlight of our trip.

You will NOT regret this once in a lifetime activity. Ask for Moses!!!

Amazing view of the Serengeti from the air!
Ali was a fabulous pilot and guide. We had never been on a balloon ride before and he made things easy and fun. We saw various animals the highlight was two porcupines (as silly as that may sound) that we otherwise hadn’t seen in our time in the Serengeti. The breakfast was amazing and the loo with a view was perfect with elephants walking by right on cue!

Hot Air Balloon Safari - don´t do Serengeti without
Highlight was of course spotting a lot of wild animals from above during the balloon safari, this is a very different angle than normal animal spotting. combined with clear instructions and guidance before and during the flight, for landing procedures, giving a high sense of professionality and safety, and compliments to Bill, all done with a good portion of British humor.
the excellent organization around e.g. timely morning pick-up, immediate collection after landing, abundant breakfast afterward, personalised certificates, etc
plus extra attention for a just married couple and a birthday - big hallo, singing, dancing, extra cake for everyone

Serengeti Hot Air Balloon, Must do.
From the very early pickup at camp and drop off point this was a fantastic experience. I had previously done the ride in 2019 with another company but this one with Captain Rosa was so much better. Coffee before, and after.

So much information from a lady who truly loves her job. We travelled just over 16 kms and were in the air for over an hour. Wow. Lots of game below and a perfect landing near wildebeest and two lions. This was followed by champagne and then breakfast and staff singing. Thank you to all of you for a a great experience. It was excellent and Rosa…you are an asset.
Loved your vibrance.

Must do in Serengeti
This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to do in Serengeti. Our group of 8 had scheduled this as part of our experience and boy are we glad we did. Not only was the balloon ride awesome but Pilot Bill made the experience extremely comfortable and safe. He did a fantastic job in explaining the entire process and safety procedures before we took off and provided the best views and pointed out many animals. His calm demeanor and confidence made everyone feel safe and secure. Not to mention their equipment is world-class and seems very sturdy. Thank you Pilot Bill for an amazing experience. Highly recommend this adventure and company.

The Best of 10 previous experiences

I had made balloon in Arizona, Mexico, Myanmar, Salt Lake City, Morocco, Turkey, etc. By far this it’s the most professional and high quality company ever.

From the welcome, all the feedback, quality of balloon's and equipment, training of the pilots to the wonderful breakfast, clean restrooms ( toilets ), perks to buy, and warm service from begging to end.

They are not cheap, but they are the best.

Great breakfast and awesome pictures
Nice provider and really friendly staff! Captain Jones Temba is just great and also had a lot of fun.

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.
