Tarangire Ballooning

Tarangire Ballooning

Wake up to a fresh brewed cup of coffee as a lightening in the sky to the east gives a hint to the colors that will spread out over the plains.

Head off in the cool of the morning towards the balloon launch site and slowly rise with the sound of the gas burners filling the balloon above.Drift over the plains, swamps, acacia and baobab forests, and if lucky catch glimpses of Kilimanjaro and Meru, pink and apricot in the early morning sunrise.

Elephants and giraffe slowly wend their way towards the permanent water, dry sand rivers twist amongst the valleys and outcrops, the morning chorus of birds fill the surrounding air.

From 2012, Boundary Hill Lodge will be able to offer ballooning and accommodation packages over the Tarangire plains.

From $750 USD per person, for two nights’ accommodation, night drive, bush walk and balloon safari.
