These safaris essentially cater only for the luxury travellers and those interested in big-game fishing. Shizi Safaris can arrange a flying safari for you whereby a light aircraft will collect you from your nearest strip in the early morning and fly to any of the national parks depend on your itinerary. The advantage of flying safari is saving the time and hassle that you could use on the roads from one destination to another. Unless you are travelling on a budget, flying is just about the only and the most convenient way to getting around the national parks in Tanzania.
Viewing a game park from the vantage point of a hot-air balloon is a magnificent experience which you won’t ever forget – but it is expensive! The experience floating silently above the plains with a 360-degree view of everything beath you, without safari buses competing for the photo opportunity, is incomparable. It is definitely worth saving up for!
The flights typically set off at dawn and go for about 1 and a half hours after which they put down and you tuck into a champagne breakfast. After that, you will be taken on a game drive in a support vehicle and returned to your lodge. At present, these flights are available in Serengeti Ndutu in the south, Serengeti Seronera in the central and Serengeti Kogatende in the north part of the park and they depart daily. Ballon safaris in the game park are an absolutely superb way of seeing the savannah plains and of course the animals but without the intrusion of vehicles and dozens of other tourist doing the same thing.
