Enjoy unbelievable views shared only by the birds that soar over the Safari Park's grounds! Modeled after the hot air balloon tours of the Serengeti, the Balloon Safari tethered helium balloon rises silently 400 feet. Spend 10 to 12 minutes in the sky over the Safari Park.

The best time to fly is 9 a.m. to noon; approximate hours are 9 a.m. to dusk. Prices vary, depending on peak times and days; please inquire when at the Park. Due to social distancing, capacity may be limited.

Please note: Balloon Safari is subject to closure during inclement weather.
