Balloon flight on Safari

Balloon trip in Africa
A balloon ride over the African bush is an unforgettable experience. It obviously can't be called game viewing as you're high above the tree tops, but the scenery especially as the sun rises is spectacular.

Pre-dawn - getting the balloon ready for flight
It can be a little chilly first thing. But hot coffee and a camp fire keep us warm, while the balloon is also warmed up.

Heading off in the pre dawn light with the Mountains behind us
Of-course the wind decides which direction the flight takes and its difficult to predict the landing site. Here we landed in amongst the Orange groves. A perfect landing.
Perfect landing
