The photos below were taken on a balloon ride I took in June (2010) in western Serengeti. The migration had not arrived yet, but as I soon discovered, the real thrill was from the flight itself. It's not that easy spotting wildlife from above, but the bird song that greets you as you skim over the acacia tree tops is absolutely breathtaking.
The photo gallery below has all the details about hot air balloon flights in the Serengeti, what to expect, how to book, what the take-off and landing procedures are, and much more.
