Camps and Lodges
To experience an air balloon safari with AirVentures in the Okavango Delta, a minimum of one night's stay needs to be booked at one of the camps located in our flying area. This is due to hot air balloons having to fly within the first hour of sunrise, when the cool, calm, weather of early morning provides the conditions required for safe enjoyable flight. In addition, as the flying area is located in a remote area of the Okavango Delta, which is only accessible by air, charter flights are unable to reach the area in time for the balloons take-off at sunrise.
There are four Camps in, and around, the flying area, each offering a unique product, catering for a wide variety of individual tastes, and all providing water and land based activities throughout the year. Camps are reached by a 40 minute flight from Maun, or a 1 hour flight from Kasane. Transfer times from the Camps to the balloon safari will vary depending on the launch site being used. Balloon and accommodation packages can be booked directly with us. The following accommodation venues are available:
