Ruaha ballon.09


 It's now officially started to operate daily dawn flights over Ruaha in June 2018

It's a Magical way to see the wild life and scenery of the beautiful Ruaha Area at large
Probably the most beautiful balloon flight in the world and the ultimate safari experience.

Service description:
● It Starts Around 5:00 am (approx, depending on location)
● Ruaha Balloon Safari's will collect you from your lodge or camp, and transfer you by closed
safari vehicle to the launch site by the Great Ruaha River.
● There you will meet your pilot, receive a briefing and watch the inflation of your balloon.
● At dawn you will take off, rising as the sun rises and floating in whichever direction the winds
of the morning take.
● The pilot can precisely control the altitude of the balloon: sometimes flying at treetop height,
sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the
wildlife below. At other times the pilot may ascend to 1,000 ft or more, to see the enormity
and wonderful panorama of Ruaha.
● From time to time the Pilot must put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper
burners. In between these burns, there is silence apart from the natural sounds below.
● The flight is for about one hour, depending on conditions, and eventually landing.
● Celebration is made in the traditional manner with champagne at landing site (well, an
excellent sparkling wine) before sitting down to a full English breakfast prepared and served in
the bush in “Out of Africa” style with bone china, linen table cloth, Sheffield cutlery etc.
● After breakfast you receive your Ruaha Balloon Certificate and later meet up with your safari
driver ready to continue your day’s activities.
