Day 11

    

Singita Serengeti Grumeti

Day notes

With a panorama that is unique to this part of the world, game viewing is taken to extraordinary new heights, aerial photography offers a different angle, the freedom of flight is yours and the silent whispers of the breeze entice you on an unforgettable adventure. You will be collected from the Singita Sabora Tented Camp early this morning and driven to the Singita Grumeti Reserves hot-air balloon launch site.

Your pilot will welcome you, give you a full briefing and you’ll watch the inflation of the hot-air balloon. You will climb aboard and rise as the sun rises to view Africa aloft. The balloon floats in whichever direction the winds guide while your pilot precisely controls the altitude of the balloon - sometimes at treetop height, at other times ascending to 1,000 feet to see the enormity of the reserve. A balloon safari is an evocative way of experiencing the wilderness as you gracefully and silently glide over the plains, observing the wide variety of wildlife below.

The flight will last for approximately one hour, depending on conditions. It has to be the most beautiful balloon flight in the world, and is a celebration of the best Africa has to offer. You’ll arrive back at the Singita Sabora Tented Camp at approximately 8:30 ready to continue your day of game activities in the private Singita Grumeti Reserves! Your overnight arrangements will be at Singita Sabora Tented Camp in your two luxury tents on a full board basis.
