5 Days Serengeti balloon safari is a Tanzania wildlife viewing experience which will start in Arusha, with an opportunity to visit Serengeti National Park which is one of the most popular safari destination in the northern part of Tanzania, and Africa as a whole.

Day 1  Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park

The drive from Arusha town to Lake Manyara National Park takes about 4 hours. After having a Picnic lunch in Manyara, you start a late afternoon game drive, which is the best time to view animals in this park. When you approach it from the east, the Rift Valley escarpment looms on the horizon forming an impressive backdrop to the lake. In the tall trees of the ground water forest, monkeys leap from branch to branch, and on the escarpment, elephants stand in the shade. Other animals frequently seen are zebras, impalas, monkeys, giraffes, buffalos, hippos, and others.

Overnight at the Paradise Wilderness Hotel or Similar

Day 2  Lake Manyara National Park to Tarangire

After breakfast, drive to Tarangire National Park, enjoy full day game drive with picnic lunch. After lunch we will continue our safari in the park until the evening. The park consists of natural vegetation mainly of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp area in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania'a dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa.

This African National Park is also home to three rare species of animals - the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx as well as a few Ashy Starlings.

Day 3  Tarangire to Serengeti National Park

The drive to Serengeti National Park via Olduvai Gorge takes 3 to 4 hours. Olduvai Gorge is an archaeological site located in the eastern Serengeti plains, in which early human fossils were first discovered. It has an amazing landscape that resulted from the same tectonic forces that created the Great Rift Valley millions of years ago. Then, in the late evening drive to the Serengeti central park.

Day 4  Serengeti Game drive

On this day, those who wish to experience Serengeti Balloon Safaris (at extra cost), will be picked up before dawn at their hotels. Start to rise as the sun rises and floating in whichever direction the winds of the morning take us.

The flight is about one hour, depending on conditions and eventually we must land and have a full English breakfast in the bush. Then later join the rest of the group for game drive.

While others after breakfast, we will venture into the Serengeti's wilderness corners for a full-day of game viewing in the park. With a picnic lunch beside you, take your leisure while exploring this world heritage site, where earth's largest concentration of plain game still roams free until late evening.

Day 5  Serengeti National Park to Arusha

After an early breakfast, check out of the lodge with packed picnic lunch and depart back to Arusha. We will arrive in the late afternoon to Arusha/Kilimanjaro in time for your onward flight. Alternatively continue to your booked hotel (at your own expense)
