Balloon Safari Over Serengeti National Park



"Tanzania Wildlife Safaris organised an 8 days / 7 nights safari across Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire, and Lake Manyara. We were given their best driver and guide, Zephania, who showed phenomenal knowledge of the animals, their habits, and their abodes. Thanks to him, we could spot and film a leopard as it approached its kill!! A rare experience indeed!!

His knowledge of the birds, plants, and vegetation was superb, and he presented it like new each morning. I wish I had recorded his talk over the 8 days. He is an expert driver in that difficult terrain. He knew the territory like the back of his hand. An excellent vehicle for the journey. Altogether a superb trip!" - Ashwin Panemangalore. Pune, India - February 5, 2020

"Ngorongoro was our three-day tour's last and final stop (Arusha - Lake Manyara – Ndutu – Ngorongoro). Rose put this itinerary together for us, and she was incredibly helpful and communicative, and our driver Felix was amazing. He had so much knowledge about all the different flora and fauna we saw in Ngorongoro and the area's history, and he loved what he did. He even went back to get us after our drive was over one day because he had heard reports of a lion nearby, and because of him, we not only saw it but were within 15 feet of it.

We stayed in Rhino Lodge (inside Ngorongoro) the night before, which was perfect for being one of the first in the park the next day. It has the most animals, so it was great to see it last! I would recommend Ngorongoro to anyone." - Gilenya, London, UK.

"Glad we went – We were worried that this would feel too much like a zoo for us at the end of our Safari, but it didn't. The crater landscape and terrain have to be seen from above and below. It holds a diverse range of animals.

We went in early to maximize our chance of seeing black rhinos and saw 3 (from a distance). The roads aren't too close together, so you don't tend to get as close to animals here as in other parks, but it was nice in that sense, too." - David Baker, Sydney, Australia.

Testimonials by our Guests

"Magnificent setting, good viewing – It is a spectacular setting. We saw a hippo and, at a distance, a rhino and a cheetah which were not seen in Tarangire. The guides were good, and our driver, Silver, was very helpful." - Ian H., Auckland Region, New Zealand.

"Awesome Hotel, Helpful and Kind staff – I stayed at the African Tulip with my parents before and After our Safari. The Hotel was ideally located. It is a very nice hotel located in a calm street away from the noise of Arusha's street, with a beautiful swimming pool to chill. The rooms are spacious and spot clean, the Internet is reliable even in the room and free of charge, and breakfast is awesome.

You can feel that all the Hotel staff is dedicated to making your stay enjoyable, and they will go out of their way to help you. As we were flying late in the afternoon, we were granted a late checkout at no cost. The African Tulip the perfect Oasis to start and finish your Safari. Stayed November 2015, travelled with family." - Seb D, Montreal, Canada.

"Cats, cats, and lots more to offer – The Serengeti is not to be missed. The long drive (or flight) is worth it. It's a very large park with a good concentration of wildlife, the rains came early for us (3-5 Sept 2014), but this was good as it kept flies and heat to a minimum. We saw many cats (all types) and many Elephants, Giraffes, Hyena and Buffalo, Impala and Gazelle.

The one thing that separates this park from all others for me is just as it's written… 'endless plains' are breath-taking, and it's not like many of the other parks and conservancies in East Africa where you'll see power lines out here it's you and the animals! The Kopjes and mix of plains and wooded areas make it unique and well-suited for wildlife safaris. We stayed at Kati Kati tented camp." - David Baker, Sydney, Australia.

Testimonials on Wildlife Safari

"We enjoyed our experience with Safari. We combined both the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater in a three-day trip that included two stays overnight and a flight into the Serengeti at the beginning. This condensed itinerary worked for us, as my partner and I are high-energy, well-travelled people with lots of stamina.

Rose was fabulous in advising us and helping us tailor our trip before we set foot in Tanzania, answering promptly to emails. She also helped and remained flexible with other details while in Tanzania, such as where we would get picked up. My partner and I were alone on the Safari itself and were guided by Joachim. Joachim suited our personalities well. He would join my partner and me in the search for the animals, providing explanations when we needed or asked, and would stop as long as we liked at each sighting.

One day on the Serengeti, while we were scouting out many of the Big 5 (which we eventually accomplished), Joachim conducted a multi-hour search in the background that eventually brought us to a mother cheetah and her cubs. He was also a bit of a practical joker, which kept everything light and lively.

The price we paid for the Safari was cheaper than most other companies, which naturally made us a bit nervous before we arrived in Tanzania. Still, I couldn't identify a difference in service compared to other companies, except maybe in branding and international presence. We were very pleased, Jambo!" - Onyx Eyes, Munich, Germany.

"Most companies didn't answer, and of those who did, only this one was consistently responsive. Communications were clear and comprehensive, making the whole planning process easy at a cost less than half the typical rate. Our trip was flawlessly orchestrated, authentic to its core, and profoundly transformative." – T-Ride Magazine (Colorado)
