You are woken up at early hours of the morning from your safari lodge or tented camp and as the thought of game viewing from an elevated position stirs your mind. You are served some coffee or tea to awaken you up and are then transferred to the Balloon launch pad site.
At dawn you take off rising as the sun rises and float in whichever direction the winds of the the morning take you. The balloon pilot controls the altitude of the balloon; offering you a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities. At other times the pilot will ascend high to enable you see and appreciate the enormity and wonderful panorama of the plains below. The balloon floats silently above it all ‘ like a dream come true’
The flight takes about one hour and lands in the Bush to a Champagne style breakfast and the presentation of the Balloon flight certificates. You are later driven to back to your safari lodge or tented camp.
Hot Air Balloon flights need to be pre-arranged with CKC Tours & Travel to ensure guaranteed availability due to the limited space of only 16 passengers in a balloon.
