Elephants - Serengeti National Park safari - Tanzania, AfricaIn a trailblazing initiative that marries wonder, luxury, and wildlife like never before, Aardvark Safaris, in partnership with Serengeti Balloon Safaris and Wayo Africa Fly Camps, brings you the first-ever Trans-Serengeti Balloon Safari Expedition. This revolutionary journey spans six exhilarating days from November 1st to 7th, 2023, offering a mesmerising experience that marries the heart of Serengeti’s untouched beauty with the thrill of the skies.

Commencing and concluding in the vibrant city of Arusha, this expedition adds a new dimension to the safari experience. A paradigm shift from traditional safari trips, it combines the adrenaline of balloon voyages with the earthy allure of fly-camping, revealing the Serengeti from breathtakingly diverse perspectives. The safari includes four nights under the boundless African night sky, cocooned in star-studded tents, offering an immersive rendezvous with the untamed wilderness.

Each dawn brings with it a new adventure. Participants are whisked away in a hot air balloon to another untouched corner of the Serengeti’s sprawling expanses. Accompanied by seasoned guides, travellers can engage in exploratory walking safaris and conventional wildlife drives, soaking in the grandeur of the Serengeti’s majestic vistas and prolific wildlife.

The world-renowned Serengeti National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a testament to nature’s magnificence and complexity. The Trans-Serengeti Balloon Safari invites guests to discover the park’s secrets, offering an unparalleled bird’s eye view from as high as 2,000 feet and heart-thumping close-range encounters with grass-level wildlife.

Highlights of the journey include a hands-on experience with the Frankfurt Zoological Society’s de-snaring team, a captivating exploration of the cheetah-rich Gol Kopjes, and a great landing on the Eastern shores of Lake Victoria, introducing the spectacle of a hot air balloon to a community that has yet to witness one.

The journey is available through Aardvark Safaris starting at USD$10,194 per person, based on two sharing. The cost includes a spectrum of unforgettable experiences such as all transfers, four full board fly-camping, two nights of B&B at Rivertrees Inn Arusha, four extended balloon flights, guided walking and 4×4 safaris. The package includes all drinks on safari, guided activities in Arusha, and return internal flights from Arusha to the Serengeti.
