When do you operate?
We operate daily from the 1st May to the 15th September. Should I pre-book my Balloon Safari? We highly recommend pre-booking your Balloon Safari as there are limited spaces available on the hot air balloon.
Do I need to book accommodation close to the Balloon Safari?
Yes. As the Balloon Safari takes place at sunrise, accommodation needs to be booked at one of the Hotels/ Lodges in the Kasane and Chobe area, or at one of the Lodges/ Camps situated within closer proximity to the flying area. See our hot air ballooning and Accommodation options.
What Should I bring?
We advise passengers to bring cameras, binoculars, hats, and sunscreen. The early mornings can be cool in temperature but does increase quickly through the morning, so wearing layered clothing to adjust to the temperature is recommended.
Can anyone fly?
We do not carry children under the age of 7 years. Passengers must be able to stand unassisted for the duration of the flight, be able to enter and exit the basket, and have the ability to bend their knees for landing. The balloon safari is not suitable for pregnant ladies.
How long is the experience?
The entire experience from pick up to drop off is approximately 6 hours. The Balloon Safari flight time is approximately 1 hour in duration.
How do I get to the Balloon Safari?
AirVentures will pick you up and return you to your accommodation venue in the Kasane Area. Pick ups from camps within closer vicinity to the flying area can be organised upon prior arrangement.
