Our balloons are sourced from the world leading manufacturers, Cameron Balloons, Ultramagic Globos and Lindstrand Balloons. Built to ‘custom safari specifications’ the baskets are high walled for comfort and security and divided into passenger compartments each providing an outside view. There are seat squabs to sit on for launch and landing. Our balloon envelope colours are acacia green and savannah gold to blend harmoniously with the colours of the Serengeti. We have 8, 12 and 16 passenger balloons.
Here are a couple of clips on how they are made:
