BALLOON TOURS IN AFRICA

Are You Planning A Balloon Safari In Africa? Scroll Down For Details..

Take your dream trip to a new level on a Balloon Safari by AfricanMecca over some of the most beautiful landscapes on the continent! You simply cannot imagine the spectacular beauty that unfolds below you as you drift silently on invisible wind currents. The only sounds you hear are distant calls of wildlife and the soft roar of the burner. Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most sought-after safari destinations in Africa. Visitors from around the world travel to the reserve each year to witness the Great Herds Migration as the cross the famed Mara River. Now you can take a hot air balloon tour of Kenya’s Masai Mara as over one million wildebeests and thousands of zebras thunder across the remote outback. In Tanzania, view the bush country through the eyes of early aviator explorers. Your skyward travel over Serengeti National Park gives you a bird’s-eye view of cheetahs, lions, hyenas and other hidden stalkers craftily stalk their prey. Balloon flights in Serengeti are available in four locations based on the annual path of wildebeest migration i.e. South around Ndutu, Central around Seronera, West around Grumeti and Kirawira and also North around Mara River by Kogatende. An iconic landscape awaits in Tarangire National Park where families of elephants gather to socialize, graze and drink. In Southern Africa, the vast Busanga Plains in Kafue National Park is the star of the show for hot air balloon safaris in Zambia. As a private concession, the area is seen by few visitors, and even fewer see the landscape from the sky. Floating over the Kafue, you see a diversity of wildlife, such as puku, buffalo, red lechwe, hippo, elephant, roan, zebra and other fauna.
For guests who revel in views of vast and unique terrain, a ballooning trip over South Africa’s Hoedspruit area is breathtaking. The area is largely comprised of private farmland, and the primary natural features are the Blyde River and Drakensburg Escarpment. The most stunning geological area for a ballooning holiday in Africa, though, is by far Sossusvlei in the center of Namib Naukluft Park. The desolate terrain features contrasting colors of tan, taupe, terra cotta and brick red. Large expanses of the seemingly endless flat desert are edged by random sand dune elevations that rise about the flatlands. Oddly placed clumps of vegetation create mesmerizing patterns, leaving one to ponder how life exists in such a place. Sunrise and sunset are highly recommended for guests taking a photography vacation in Namibia, as the shadows cast across the landscape form dramatic shapes that enhance any image. Hot air balloon rides are available almost all year round and should be arranged before you arrive in-country due to high demand and limited capacity. The activity is also only offered in certain areas and at specific accommodations within the balloon destination. Additionally, the weather plays an important part in the availability of this aerial activity. With so many aspects to consider, you need the expert guidance and insight of your AfricanMecca tour representative. We are your ultimate resource for arranging your ideal hot air ballooning experience in Africa’s most beautiful settings.
