Experience the wild wonders of Tarangire and Serengeti National Parks from an entirely new perspective – floating high above in a majestic hot air balloon! Mawe Lodges presents a once-in-a-lifetime adventure – the Hot Air Balloon Safari – an unforgettable journey that will take your breath away.
As the sun rises, you’ll ascend into the sky aboard a spacious and secure hot air balloon. The panoramic views from above will leave you in awe as you witness the sprawling landscapes dotted with acacia trees and the vast herds of wildlife roaming freely below.
With only the gentle whisper of the wind as your soundtrack, this serene experience will contrast the usual bustling wildlife safaris. The hot air balloon offers a peaceful escape into the untouched beauty of the African wilderness, allowing you to absorb the majesty of Tarangire and Serengeti truly.
The breathtaking wildlife spectacle unfolds beneath you as you float higher. Watch in amazement as elephants gather at watering holes, giraffes stretch for the highest leaves, and lions begin their morning hunt. Your bird’s-eye view grants you a privileged perspective on nature’s theater.
The experience peaks during sunrise when the golden rays cast a magical glow over the landscape. The changing colors of the sky create a mesmerizing backdrop for your hot air balloon adventure, making it a photographer’s dream come true.
Rest assured, our hot air balloon safaris are led by highly experienced pilots well-versed in the area’s topography and wildlife behavior. Safety is paramount, and our pilots adhere to strict safety protocols, ensuring a worry-free journey for all participants.
After an enchanting flight, you’ll be greeted with a traditional champagne breakfast upon landing. Raise a toast to your extraordinary adventure as you relish the moment and share stories of your aerial escapade with fellow adventurers.
The hot air balloon safari is not just a thrilling adventure; it’s an experience that will etch memories in your heart forever. The feeling of weightlessness, the awe-inspiring sights, and the connection to nature’s grandeur will stay with you long after the journey.
Balloon safaris take around 1hr to 1hr 15 minutes, but the activity from pick up and return to the lodge takes about 3-4hrs.
Mornings are usually cold, it’s good to have a layer of warm clothes, preferred long sleeve for both shirt and pants, a camera and binocular is recommended.
Comfortable walking in closed shoes are also essential.
Balloon flights are limited to a certain number of passengers, mostly from 12-16 people; that being the case, the seats get quickly sold out. We would recommend booking ahead of time to avoid last-minute disappointment.
