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

20 Dec 2019 by Serengeti Balloon Safaris

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!
