Experience the delights of a hot air balloon flight.

When on a safari, be it by vehicle or on foot, your perspective is somewhat limited – but there is another way. Leave your lodge before dawn and get ready to experience the sunrise and savannah in a way you may only experience once-in-a-lifetime: hot air ballooning.

Your one hour balloon flight departs just as the sun is rising, and you float effortlessly into the air and start to marvel at whats in front of you. The landscapes and wildlife are amazing.

The experience doesn't end with the balloon ride. Once you land you have the traditional end of flight meal... a champagne breakfast! Relax over a glass of champagne and take it all in.

Once breakfast is finished you'll be taken on an exciting game drive back to your lodge.

No matter where you are in Africa, there is a balloon ride for everyone: how about the arid Sossuslevi with its remarkable red sands? Or South Africa’s Panorama Region? You can’t beat the famous Masai Mara and its classic African savannah, but why not add the varied Serengeti plain or the Zambia grassland? The adventure of your dreams is out there and a hot air balloon ride is one of the best ways to experience it.

Enjoy this fantastic experience
