Balloon Safari at Mara River Tented Camp

Singita Grumeti guests have the opportunity to experience the Serengeti from the air aboard a hot air balloon. Partnering with our preferred supplier in the region, Serengeti Balloon Safaris, this experience offers guests a unique way to experience the vastness of the Serengeti at sunrise.

This activity can be booked on arrival at the lodge, however, it is recommended that this activity is pre-booked through Singita reservations prior to arrival.
