African Safari 2001 - Serengeti Balloon Ride

2001-2015 Alvy Ray Smith (Ars Longa). All rights reserved. All images made with Nikon D1X digital camera.

These are shots made from a balloon over the Serengeti, a remarkable business enterprise in the African bush and a joy to its customers - to this one, at least. All shots were made 19 Aug 2001 over the central Serengeti in Tanzania. There were two balloons, so the balloon in several of these shots is the other balloon, seen from mine.
