Longleat Sky Safari


This September, our spectacular Sky Safari is returning to make your visit extra special and it’s going to be even bigger and better than ever. Over the course of the three day event over 150 balloons of all shapes, sizes and colours will be taking to the skies above Longleat. You’ll get breath-taking views (and pictures) during our mass launches and tethered displays.

As well as flying more balloons than ever before, to make this year’s event even more memorable, we’ll be showcasing lots of beautiful (and sometimes bizarrely) shaped balloons! As ever, our very own lion hot air balloon, Simbaloo, will be taking flight along with a brand new addition to the Longleat fleet. Keep your eyes peeled for penguins; Puddles, Splash and Tall Steve, Wes the Wolf, an owl, a donkey, Bertie Basset and even a balloon themed around Disney’s hit movie ‘Up’ to name but a few.

Back by popular demand – our spectacular Night Glows! On both Friday 14thand Saturday 15tha selection of our favourite balloons will light up Longleat – firing their burners to an amazing musical soundtrack. You’re not going to want to miss this; between the animals, Longleat House and the balloons you’re going to be busy from dawn till dusk!
