Africa’s mesmerizing landscapes just got a new vantage point with the launch of an exciting flight route in the breathtaking Tarangire National Park, starting December 2023. The northwest corner of the Silale Swamp will serve as the launch site for this thrilling journey, promising visitors an unforgettable aerial experience in one of Tanzania’s most pristine natural havens.

A Breathtaking Adventure

The Tarangire National Park boasts a remarkable landscape to explore from the skies. As the sun begins its ascent, travellers will take off, embracing the allure of a radiant sunrise over the Tarangire river system. The journey unfolds, utilizing the power of thermals and prevailing winds, offering panoramic views of the expansive Silale Swamp and the majestic Lolkisale Hill as it stretches across this unique wilderness. The adventure continues southwards into the picturesque Tarangire river valley, a landscape adorned with towering baobab trees. The flight concludes with a gentle landing, where guests can savour a sumptuous breakfast under the shade of an ancient baobab tree.

A Unique Alternative to Serengeti

With the increasing number of safari enthusiasts focusing their adventures in Tarangire, Manyara, and Ngorongoro national parks, the launch of this new flight route means they no longer have to forgo the magic of a balloon safari. The easy-access launch site allows guests to travel directly from Arusha for a morning flight, making it a perfect fit for day-trippers, especially those on a post-Kilimanjaro climb safari.

The Tarangire Balloon Safari Experience

The Tarangire balloon safari experience is priced at USD$550 per person, inclusive of VAT and the TANAPA ballooning fee. Additionally, guests can now access two new marketing videos to facilitate the booking process, making it easier for them to understand and secure their ballooning adventure.

Safety is the foremost concern for every traveller, and the team behind this exciting new venture understands the importance of peace of mind. To bolster its safety protocols and procedures, the company has introduced Ian Chadwick, an independent specialist advisor with over 30 years of experience in commercial ballooning. Ian will ensure that every aspect of the experience meets the highest safety standards and protocols.

Ruaha Ballooning Returns

For those looking for a unique experience in Ruaha National Park, don’t miss out on the opportunity to soar over this remarkable landscape. Operating from June to October annually, Ruaha Ballooning offers exclusive balloon flights over the Great Ruaha River, with abundant wildlife and a sumptuous breakfast beneath a gigantic baobab tree.
