Adventures Aloft Balloon Safaris flies over the spectacular Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. Adventures Aloft in the Tarangire National Park flies from a take off site near Tarangire Sopa Lodge.
Adventures Aloft has a fleet of Cameron balloons, consisting of two A415 balloons with a flying capacity of 16 passengers each and is able to fly 32 passengers a day.
All pilots with Adventures Aloft have over 1000 hours of flying experience and are all commercially rated on the large size balloons. In the fifteen years of operation in Balloon Safaris over the Masai Mara, Adventures Aloft has a perfect safety record.
Balloon flights typically take off at 6.30am. Passengers arrive in time to watch the balloon inflation as the pilots torch the coloured fabric to life. The flight is for one hour, each one different path and following the days prevailing winds. A Balloon flight allows passengers to float over the world’s most spectacular Tarangire National Park, where you will find two of the `Giants of African Wilderness’: the Elephants and the Baobab Trees, and the other. On landing, the balloon crew set up a full champagne breakfast complete with “Bloody Mary’s” next to Tarangire River. Each passenger then receives a certificate from their pilot as a special memoir of their flight. A game drive en route to the lodge or the main gate ends a special morning.
Our current rate for the Balloon is US$ 450 per person valid till end of 2010
For next year the rate is US$ 499 valid from 1st January, 2011 – 31st December, 2011
