Heavy rains and thunderstorms in the southern Serengeti

With the heavy rains and thunderstorms, the pilot and guests had a beautiful flight, with light winds, amazing cloudy skies, and a beautiful sunrise. The pilot slowly moved to the south at a low level towards the southwest flying over tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebras.

The Great Wildebeest Migration was surrounding the balloon as they went down to the lower level. Not only did they witness the great migration, but they also saw hyenas, Thompson gazelle’s, Grant gazelle’s, jackals, and a Kori bustard.

Magnificent morning to take a balloon flight over the Ngorongoro conservation area

Just a magnificent morning to take a balloon flight over the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the southern Serengeti with Serengeti Balloon Safaris.

With ideal weather conditions, from mostly clear skies to light winds and an amazing sunrise as we calmly lifted off from our NCA launch site and slowly floated west southwest.  Slowly flying over the plains of NCA and Serengeti from various heights, then continuing over the woodland area, then over Lake Ndutu for some spectacular views.

What an amazing way to see the great migration that has littered the short grass plains of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro conservation area. Though the plains were dominated by Wildebeests and Zebras, we also experienced some of the other amazing animal species of this great ecosystem, including Jackals, Giraffes, Gazelles, Secretary birds, Vultures, Eagles, Storks, Flamingos, Ostriches, Bat-eared fox, Hyenas and Elephants.

Our flight lasted one hour and 12 minutes with a calm standup landing 1 kilometre west of the lake. “We began the champagne celebration at our landing site with a brief history of ballooning along with the traditional champagne toast before moving on to our bush breakfast”.

Unforgettable experience of a lifetime with Serengeti Balloon Safaris!

Today’s flight report sums up ballooning over the Serengeti at its best

Balloon safari over the Serengeti at its best!

The herds are scattered on the short plains of the southern Serengeti from the Naabi Hill to the Hidden Valley throughout the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The balloon flight progressed slowly across the plains to the edge of the forested area. After an hour and 17 minutes, two balloons made an ever so gentle landing close to the bush breakfast spot.
