Migration Update Serengeti Western CorridorBy Serengeti Balloon Safaris
The great wildebeest migration has arrived early in Serengeti Western Corridor this year. So have Serengeti Balloon Safaris. Our first flight of the season was Friday morning.
Flight Report, Western Corridor 23rd May 2014
It was an excellent day for ballooning in this part of Serengeti.
We had a clear sky, slow wind for launching and great steerage along Grumeti River. We took off few minutes before sunrise and had beautiful direction along the river.
We had everything cooperating this morning: Migration of zebras and wildebeest from the very first minute of the flight to the end. They were going in and out of the river to drink; we also saw hyenas, lions, giraffes, buffalos, baboons, black and white colobus monkey, crocodiles, hippos, impalas, topis, waterbucks, jackals, fish eagles and warthogs.
We landed after the river-bend and all passengers were very happy.
Pilot Capt. Abeid
