Hot Air Balloon Safari Experience
AirVentures offers balloon safaris over a vast concession known as the Seloko Plains in the Chobe Region of Botswana. Situated 45 minutes south of the town, Kasane, the Seloko Plains is an important wildlife corridor, extending from Zimbabwe to join up with, the Chobe National Park, and the Kasane Forest Reserve, forming part of the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area. The diverse habitat incorporates large tracts of forest which open up into wide open grassland plains, making it perfect for balloon safaris.
Your Balloon Safari begins with an early morning pick up by Flame of Africa from your accommodation venue in the Kasane area. A short transfer of approximately 45 minutes delivers you to our launch site in the Seloko Plains. On arrival, the experience of watching the hot air balloon being inflated gets you ready for the adventure ahead.
Take-off is just before sunrise, and as the hot air balloon starts to drift across the African savanna, the sun starts to break the horizon, and the spectacle of the sights and sounds of the wildlife below begins. A flight of approximately an hour has you skimming across the treetops, perfect for game viewing, and ascending into the blue of skies of Botswana for a panoramic view of the vast untouched wilderness below.
Too soon, touch down to terra firma is greeted with the friendly smiles of the awaiting ground crew. The traditional celebrations with Champagne are held in the bush, toasting this age-old adventure. A short transfer through the Seloko Plains has you arriving at a five star Camp for breakfast. After a presentation of your flight certificate by the pilot, we transfer you back to your accommodation venue.
