Amazing flight over the Serengeti with pilot Rosa ! Beautiful scenery, lots of wild animals, gorgeous sunrise and a delicious breakfast ! Rosa was terrific and we felt 100% safe all the time!
A once-in-a-lifetime experience...the balloon flight in Africa Safari Serengheti. We had the best balloon driver, Mr. Baris who made our flight very pleasant, he is a funny guy. We felt safe the whole time, being the first time we flew with the balloon.
The pilot was very friendly but also very professional and effective. The flight was absolutely wonderful! We saw so many animals and the pilot was great about bringing us lower to see some and then higher to see the whole view! Breakfast after was fun!
Captain Ali was amazing pointing out all the animals and keeping everyone entertained
A wonderful experience. Very well organized and managed. Customer care friendliness and professionalism. Matt, the pilot was charming and great.
Fantastic!! Highly recommend this company. Pilot and staff were great. Wonderful breakfast to follow and the “”Loo with a View” was outstanding.
We were able to enjoy a really nice balloon ride! The whole trip was extremely well organized and perfectly executed. Thank you very much!
A once in a lifetime experience.
From the coffee before flying too the Breakfast after, the team gave us a fantastic experience with beauteful Scenarie, and smiling people everywhere.
if we ever should go again, i would do this once more
A wonderful experience over the Serengeti. Our pilot, Moses, and his wife Amanda, both Canadians, were very friendly and knowledgeable. Clearly Moses loves his job, is good at it, and shares his excitement and enthusiasm with guests as well as his big focus on safety. Our landing was perfect. Our trip was completed with champagne after landing, a wonderful breakfast and warm African welcome. I highly recommend this company and their hot air balloon ride.
Perfect! Amazing crew from the pick up with Joan that is very professional and funny to the persons that serve the breakfast and the pilot : just perfect. An amazing experience of our honeymoon that we will never forget !
Fantastic, once-in-a-lifteime experience, and Captain CJ was phenomenal. Lovely to float over the Serengeti silently after being in 4x4s. Great breakfast too. Hope to return and do again in the rainy season!
Where to start!? This experience was the single most memorable experience of our trip. Our guide surprised us with this and as we walked up we were greeted by the most contagiously positive and friendly people! They greeted us with an extremely refreshing watermelon drink and with song and dance!
We had a private table set up for us and we loved the "loo with a view" concept. So incredibly cute, yet clean and functional and a nice break in the Serengeti where you mostly have to "check the tires".
The food here was INCREDIBLE. So tasty, so flavourful, so much variety. We were so surprised that such a tasty and memorable meal could be cheffed up in the middle of the bush! Props to the chef!!!! After our lunch the staff came out singing and dancing with a cake that they baked us for our honeymoon. They were all so genuinely happy for us and celebrating for us. We even joined in and had a dance with them!
This experience overall was so worth it coming from a hot safari day in the Serengeti! Do not hesitate to book this experience, you will NOT be disappointed!!!
A beyond wonderful and breathtaking experience for our honeymoon! There is no way we can go on another hot air balloon experience after soaring over the Serengeti and seeing wildebeest migrations. Our pilot, Niccolo, was great at pointing out animals and navigating us over the Serengeti. The company even provided pick up from our lodge in the morning and had coffee and tea ready for us before we took flight. It was exciting to land in the middle of the bush and share a champagne toast with the other passengers. The breakfast in the bush afterwards was very delicious! The staff at the breakfast tent were incredibly kind and gracious. They even had a cake for my husband and me to celebrate our honeymoon with another couple. Thank you to the entire staff (our driver, pilot and breakfast staff) for making our visit unforgettable!
The night before our hot air balloon experience, Peter came and gave us a briefing. All the directions and information was provided in a clear and efficient manner. He picked us up the next morning and we were off. He was very friendly and kind, and we enjoyed talking to him. Once we got to the location for the hot air balloon, we were offered coffee, tea and use of the restroom. We then proceeded to go on our hot air balloon. The process was very simple and again instructions clear. Our pilot Ali (Ali baba) was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Once we got into the air, we saw a few animals and had some warm coffee! Landing was smooth and we felt safe the entire time. Once we landed we were pleasantly surprised with a champagne toast! The group had a photographer that took photos of everyone. We then proceeded to the delicious bush breakfast. The staff was very kind and even surprised us with a wedding cake, as we were here for our honeymoon. They sang and danced for us as well. The food was delicious and overall the experience was 10/10. I highly recommend this group for your hot air balloon experience!
This flight was so wonderful and amazing! We had a fantastic view and we were drifting so quiet over lots of animals!
Thank you very much for these exiting hours inclusive the real fantastic breakfast under the tent whith the excellent service!
The whole stuff was so positive… we had so much fun!!!
You are the best!!!

This was the most amazing experience we have ever had. The mere fact that one can glide silently above the trees and absorb the expanse of the Serengeti plains is surreal. Animals abounded below. The professional operation that this team run is truly someting to behold. From the early morning briefing with coffee and wifi deep in the bush to the the off, 45 minutes of sheer exhilaration, the landing followed by Champagne and then a true English breakfast in the bush which was fabulous. A ceremonial certificate was present to each person. Well done to Moses and his whole team for a wondeful experience never to be forgotten. This professional outfit is truly amazing.
Moses and his team from Miracle Experience exceeded our expectations and provided the most memorable experience for us. To view the majesty of the vast Serengeti plains as we floated along is how memories are made.
After the balloon trip we were treated to a magnificent breakfast in their eco-friendly oasis.
Thank you for the unforgettable morning.
We were given this option as a honeymoon gift, this was out first balloon flight (I am afraid of heights, so I did not know what to expect). It all started early morning, to see the sunrise from the balloon launch area. The “take off” was very interesting. The flight was unbelievable great! I was not afraid of the height. Awesome views of Serengeti, our great pilot (cpt Moses) showed us many animals.
The landing even more interesting than the take off. The bush breakfast was delishous.
We got surprise singing and a cake because our tour agency told them that we were on out honeymoon. The staff was extremly nice, friendly and professional!
As an airline pilot it was a uniqe experience to fly with a balloon, I can only recommend to everybody to try it!
I hope to return one day!
Perfect organized, nice an friendly crew, fantastic view over the Mara river. Strongly recommanded. Thank you so much for this incredible Experience.
My husband and I had the pleasure of ballooning with the Miracle Experience from KOGATENDE in the northern Serengeti in late September. This was our first time in a balloon and the whole adventure with Captain Mathew, Co-Captain Moses, and the complete team from our driver to the breakfast chef provided a memorable experience for each of us in attendance that day.
I would particularly like to thank Mohamed, our driver who was with us every step of the way. Mohamed drove out to our camp the night before in the rain and mud to meet with us. During that meeting he explained exactly what would happen the next morning from the moment he picked us up at 5am to the 10am reunion with our safari guide after the balloon trip and breakfast. He answered all our questions and left us well prepared for the next day. Sure enough he returned to camp at 5am and provided us with a dark hour safari while driving to the launch site. He managed to spot several animals with his nighttime vision; the most memorable were the hippopotamuses returning to the water after a night of grazing. Thank you Mohamed for your kindness, hospitality and wonderful care.
I was surprised to witness exactly how many man hours are required to provide the Miracle Experience. The launch area was well staffed with many people setting up the balloon, supplying early morning refreshments, reviewing safety lessons, and placing us into the basket for our successful launch. It was a huge effort of staff to greet us upon landing, provide a champagne toast, and then pack up the equipment for use the next day. Finally, upon arriving at the beautiful breakfast area (do check out the “loo with a view”) we met a whole new contingent of waiters and chefs who treated us to a wonder breakfast complete with pastries, eggs, breakfast meats, fruits, and a variety of beverages. Such competent and talented staff. Thank you for all your efforts.
All in all, we are so pleased that we decided to embark on this adventure. It really was much more than a balloon ride and if we ever have the opportunity to return to the Serengeti we will gladly sign up for the Miracle experience once again.
