There’s no better way to see the Serengeti than by spending an hour floating over the plains at dawn, followed by an ‘Out of Africa’ full English breakfast in the bush under an acacia tree. You'll rise to 1000m for a vast view, then drop to treetop level. To be sure of a spot, reserve well in advance.
There's a booking office at the Serengeti Visitor Centre, but you can also book through most hotels. Pick-up from your camp or lodge is at 5.30am, and you'll be back by 9.30am.
