Safari from the sky

Imagine flying across the sky over the Okavango Delta with 360 degree panoramic views from tree top level to a thousand feet in the air?  A hot air balloon safari over this world heritage site located in the north western region of Botswana is an experience of a lifetime.

Your expert pilot will give you a safety briefing and demonstration of the boarding and landing procedures for the balloon, and then you’re ready….. take-off!

191A6433Fly over a landscape flooded with water and winding channels, dotted with islands, and combined with large expanses of woodland forests.  As your pilot navigates the balloon using winds and altitude, the spotting one of the Big Five is certain to get your heart pumping.  Large herds of buffalo and elephant visiting the area during the winter months, resident predators, and a prolific bird life during the summer months, make this North Western part of the Okavango Delta an impressive area to visit.

While on your hot air balloon safari, a recovery tracking vehicle will track the balloons journey and will meet you as you land.

A scenic area in the bush will be selected for the traditional champagne celebration where a presentation by the pilot of your commemorative flight certificate concludes a memorable morning.  Awaiting guides then take you on a game drive back to your Camp for a well-deserved breakfast.
