Our balloon flight begins near Oldupai Gorge which in Masai translates to the wild sisal. It is this area where one of the oldest hominid species dating back 3 million years has been found. Our flight also is close to the dark shifting sand dunes of the Ngorongoro, which stand out from the rest of the landscape and are composed of magnetized volcanic ash which local Masai believe came from the sacred mountain of Old Donyo Lengai, the mountain of God. The Ngorongoro conservation area is a standing example of wildlife and human habitat can co-exist side by side, and our flights will go over manyatta homesteads of the semi Nomadic Maasai tribe. Our flight path typically flies westwards towards the Ntutu plains, which from December to April is the calving area of millions of wildebeest before they begin their journey northwards through the Serengeti and into the Masai Mara.
A truly magical balloon flight where Adventure Aloft can offer you the full wildlife and cultural experience.
