Silently soaring above the herds on the East African plains, a private hot air balloon ride gives you a whole new perspective on the landscapes and wildlife of the Serengeti or Masai Mara. It’s an opportunity to drift along, taking in the almost infinite views and marveling at the sheer numbers of antelope and zebra below. With no engine or rotors to disturb the peace, you can eavesdrop on animal conversations and observe them as they go about their day – often completely unaware of your presence. The shadow of the balloon may cause the occasional perplexed glance upwards, but other than that, you’re passing by in a world of your own. At Singita in Grumeti, Tanzania, a champagne breakfast awaits when you land, so you can toast your love.
