Our balloons are made in Bristol, England, by Cameron Balloons. Cameron is the most experienced builder of “safari ride” balloons in the world, having placed balloons in Africa for over 30 years. We operate two “A415” balloons: each balloon envelope holds 415,000 cubic feet of air. To heat the air inside the envelope, we use state-of-the-art “shadow and stealth” burners, which are designed to make as little noise as possible, thus decreasing our impact on the environment.
Our baskets are specially designed and have been modified over the years to accommodate the particular demands of safari-flying. The baskets are divided into 4 compartments, each able to accommodate up to 4 people. For safety and comfort, the sides of the baskets are relatively high and well padded. There are also well-cushioned seats and secure handles made of rope for use during take-off and landing.
“Wonderful to finally see a well organised operation that will complement a fantastic ballooning destination!”
