Our Top Experiences and Tours in Tanzania:
If youʻre booking your trip to Tanzania last minute, we have you covered. Below are some of the top tours and experiences!


  • Take a once-in-a-lifetime balloon flight at dawn over the Serengeti
  • Enjoy a delicious bush breakfast served after the flight
  • Toast the flight with a glass of bubbly
  • Soak up the breathtaking views of the Ngorongoro Highlands


Wake up before the birds and head out from your camp in the Serengeti in the silence of the pre-dawn towards the balloon launch site. Then, listen as your pilot takes you through an important safety briefing as the sky begins to lighten and the crew inflates the balloon. Climb into the basket and prepare to lift up into the dawn skies. Marvel as the balloon climbs through the layers of air until you're high enough to see the curve of the horizon, painted gold and pink by the early sun. Your pilot has years of experience in harnessing the African wind as well as interpreting the wildlife below. After around 1 hour, the basket will return to the plains of the Serengeti. Each flight is a different journey dictated by the direction of the wind, so the landing point will be unknown - this is all part of the adventure. When you land, toast the flight with a glass of bubbly. Then, be whisked off in a safari car towards the special Serengeti breakfast spot. Enjoy a delicious breakfast served under the sweeping canopy of an acacia tree in the middle of the Serengeti plains. Savor tropical fruit, freshly-baked bread baked, and eggs cooked in the bush. The food will be made more delicious by the location and served on linen, bone china and Sheffield cutlery in an 'Out of Africa' style. Eat shoulder to shoulder with your fellow passengers, as you absorb the memories of the exceptional flight you’ve just been a part of.
