The individuals who have not experienced any hot air balloon safaris ever, here is some general information about what you will be seeing once you visit us

Usually, a team of 20-25 people is needed for the launch and recovery of the safari. When you arrive at the launch site, you may have a chance to see the balloon, which is also known as an “envelope,” being inflated. The ground crew opens the envelope by positioning it on the ground. 

The envelope is partly inflated by using a massive fan. The crew connects the basket and burner when the envelope is around half full. During inflation, the basket remains fully secured to the ground. It is used to fully inflate the envelope.

Looking at the inflation and all the planning is a magnificent experience as soon as you see the enormous balloon scale! The crew supports passengers on board until the aircraft is completely inflated. For your convenience and protection, the basket on your ball is divided into several compartments.
