Why fly with us

Why fly with us?

For a lifetime experience such as this, you want to make sure you fly with the best. Since the 1970s, we’ve been crafting exceptional balloon safaris and the memories we create are a combination of our long experience, our attention to detail and our desire to make your flight with us truly extraordinary.


Experience above all

We bring our decades of experience, as the pioneers of ballooning in Tanzania, to every aspect of your balloon safari to craft the most memorable day possible.


Local knowledge is key

We have over 30 years experience of the areas in which we fly and the local conditions right down to the little, local eddies of wind, which can make the difference between a good flight and a great flight.


It's all in the detail

Attention to detail in every aspect of our operation is what sets us miles apart. From the smooth logistics to the specific design of the balloons, the knowledge of your pilot to the quality of your breakfast, the safety checks to the choice of cutlery. It's all important.


Insurance is reassurance

We continually seek the best insurance available for our industry and for the year 2023, we have US$10,000,000 cover with no individual sub-limit.


Inspected and Fully licensed by Civil Aviation Authority.

All our balloons are fully licensed and annually inspected by the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority.


Maintaining our reputation

We have our own fully equipped maintenance facilities and factory certified technicians, who are trained and retrained in Europe on a regular basis.


Pilots in the know

Our pilots are the most experienced and knowledgeable in Tanzania. They know the area, its history, the wildlife, the ecosystem, and love sharing this with our guests.
