    Renowned for its thick elephant population and remote location, Ruaha National Park  has a distinguished topography of vast dry landscapes with the flowing  the Great Ruaha River, a lifeline to wildlife in the region and thus Ariel views of a herd of elephants digging in the giant baobab trees; kudus and giraffes quenching thirst by the river, vigilant of the predators; a hundred birds chirp around your open-air flight will make your Hot Air Balloon Safari a redefined one.

    This trip has the early morning flights that take up to 12 passengers for a spectacular wildlife game viewing experience which usually lasts for a full hour, passing above the river and seasonal tributaries where antelopes such as impalas and waterbucks are spotted around schools of hippos, hungry crocodiles and leopards,  you will further view pride of lions, roaming free in the vast savannah, the cheetahs stalking in the grasslands along sneaky leopards tucking behind large rocks.

      At 5:00 am, approx., depending on location, the guests will be picked up by Ruaha Balloon Safaris driver from their lodge or camp, and transferred by closed safari vehicle to the launch site by the Great Ruaha River. Here the guests will meet their pilot, receive a briefing and watch the inflation of their balloon. At dawn it will take off, rising as the sun rises and floating in whichever direction the winds of the morning takes. The pilot can precisely control the altitude of the balloon: sometimes flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below. At other times, pilot may ascend to 1,000ft or more, to see the enormity and wonderful panorama of Ruaha. From time to time the pilot must put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners. In between these burns, there is silence apart from the natural sounds below.

      The flight is for about one hour, depending on conditions, and eventually it must land. You will celebrate in the traditional manner with champagne (well, an excellent sparkling wine) before sitting down to a full English breakfast prepared and served in the bush in

      “Out of Africa” style with bone china, linen table cloth, Sheffield cutlery etc. After breakfast the guests receive the Ruaha Balloon Certificate and later meet up with their safari driver ready to continue with the safari program.
