The Exclusive Cup - #SkySafari

Welcome to the Exclusive Cup, SkySafari – Europe’s largest annual hot air balloon festival

Almost 250 hot air balloons from all corners of the world will once again be ascending from Longleat this week, making Sky Safari Europe’s largest annual hot air balloon event!

We have pilots from as far afield as the USA, United Arab Emirates and Japan who will be taking part in the event.

Our new giant Longleat Koala hot air balloon called Adelaide will be flying over the huge park with her friends which include Simbaloo the lion, a cheetah called Duma, Roger the panther, Wes the wolf, a fox, a parrot, an owl and a surprise new friend to be unveiled at the event.

We have almost 40 special shaped balloons making an appearance over the weekend; either flying or taking part in tethered displays with everything from a flying recreation of the Brandenburg Gate, a giant emoji and a full-sized version of the famous animated balloon from Up.

There will be our signature unique night glows on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening where tethered balloons are choreographed to a carefully selected and produced soundtrack, an incredible site no one should miss.

Now . . . #LetsGlowCrazy!

The Exclusive Cup is an now an established annual event in the UK calendar as the event for balloonists run by balloonists with the emphasis on relaxed and fun flying in a friendly yet professional environment.
