Hot Air Balloon Safari In Tanzania
One of the famous places to go on a Tanzania Safari is the Serengeti. Not only does this National Park receive lots of visitors every year and have an excellent reputation, but it offers a form of Tanzania Safari that is not available anywhere else in Tanzania.
The Advantages of a Hot Air Balloon Safari
Taking off at dawn, you will rise into the air as the sun comes up over the Serengeti and witness the animals of the plains waking up to a new day in the National Park. Once you land you are treated to bush breakfast that will have you savouring the food as much as the sights of the Serengeti from the air.
Not only this, but sailing through the air, you will get to see areas of the park that you might not otherwise get to see in a few short hours, though it is recommended that any cameras you take on a hot air balloon Tanzania Safari are strapped around your neck so there is no danger of dropping the over the side.
The Game you can see on a Hot Air Balloon Safari
As the hot air balloon takes you out of the plains of the Serengeti, there are a wide variety of different animals that you can see on this Tanzania Safari. If you are going to the Serengeti to witness the Great Migration, then there is no better place to see it than from the air.
The 2 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras and 350,000 impalas, Thompson’s gazelles and Grant’s gazelles can be seen to their full effect and wonder from the air above, giving you a real insight into just why it’s called the Great Migration.
There is also an opportunity to see the predators of the plains of the Serengeti from a very different angle. With between and 3,000 and 4,000 lions in the park, as well as a plethora of cheetahs, leopards and hyenas, you won’t be disappointed.
There are also a myriad of other animals that call the Serengeti National Park home that you can see like never before from the air. These include elephants, topi, eland, hartebeest, serval, bat-eared foxes, hyrax, genet, hares, caracal, porcupines, aardvarks, giraffes, jackals, mongoose, crocodiles, monitor lizards, aardwolves, baboons, vervet and colobus monkeys as well as other primates and over 500 species of birds.
