Hot Air Balloon Tours can be added to any other trip, or our team can design a tailor made trip including it in any Natioanal Park you will visit.


The Cost of the vehicle depends on what you have chosen from our available.

The price of the hot air balloon experience is USD $380 per person.

Children up to 12 years will receive 50% off the adults price.


  1. No minimum passengers are required, however  the maximum capacity of the current balloon is 16 pax. Any smaller number will be sharing with other passengers.
  2. The minimum age is 6 years unless under parents responsibility.
  3. Flights are offered daily all year round, unless the weather does not permit.
  4. Hot air balloon passenger flights take place in winds less than 10 knots, with no rain or approaching storms in the immediate area. Flights also require a visibility of at least 4 km.
  5. Should weather conditions dictate that the balloon safari may not depart, a full refund will be issued. Alternatively, if passengers have another morning to experience the balloon safari they may opt to try it again the next day (subject to availability).
  6. The entire experience takes 3-4 hours. Passengers are expected to be back at their lodge around 09.00-10.00 am (depending on the length of the game drive).
  7. What to bring: guests can only take a small day backpack, camera etc. Main luggage must be left at the lodge. No special clothing is required for hot air ballooning.
  8. The flight is not high enough for a change in temperature so plan to dress for the temperature of the day. Remember to bring your camera, binoculars, batteries and a protective bag.

Transfer of the guests, balloon, pilot and ground crew to pick the right spot for takeoff. The locations are limited to designated sites where the disturbance to animals is kept to a minimum. After the necessary weather tests for wind direction and allocating the final take off place, guests are served tea, coffee and refreshments while the balloon is unloaded and assembled.

Then cold inflation takes place followed by hot inflation. Guests will receive safety briefing before the flight.

06.15 am Takeoff

The flight will take place for approximately 1 hour. Flights can vary from 45 minutes up to 1.5 hours depending on the amount of fuel on bard, the passengers’ combined weight, the temperature of the air and when the pilot finds a suitable landing area. The balloon will fly at an altitude range anywhere from tree tops up to 2500 feet (760 metres) which allows guests unique panoramic views and great photographic opportunities of the scenery and wildlife below.

After landing as smooth as possible there will be a celebration with sparkling (non alcoholic) wine and a full English bush breakfast will be served. Every guest(passenger) will be honored with a hot air balloon safari certificate as a souvenir of this adventure.
