Don’t Let a Fear of Heights Keep You from the Adventure of a Lifetime

July 15, 2020 | 4 Min read

While it is not often talked about, a lot of people around the world are living with an intense fear of heights, also known as acrophobia. Although it is a quite common condition, acrophobia can easily become a constant obstacle in your life and something you have to struggle with daily. How often have you missed out on a nice view?

How often did you wait for your friends at the foot of the rollercoaster? Well, if you are looking to work on overcoming your fear of heights and enjoying your life and its new adventures to the fullest, a hot air balloon safari might be a nice way to ease into it.

While being out in the open might be scary, flying in a balloon safari is an exceptionally smooth and safe ride. The altitude is adjusted by using the burner to blow hot air into the balloon in a slow and gentle manner. You will quietly glide over the plains of the Serengeti and its magnificent wildlife and panoramas, and slowly say goodbye to your inhibitions.

After taking a few minutes to adjust yourself, you will come to enjoy this amazing adventure and take a breath of fresh air with both feet carefully planted inside the basket and your safety belt securely fastened.

Hot air balloon rides are among the safest and smoothest modes of air transport in the world. Our crew prides itself with having taken hundreds of people on countless tours over the Serengeti without any incidents. This has been made possible by the extra care and prudence of our ground staff and pilots; we will only ever allow a balloon to take off if the conditions are optimum for a flight.

Our crew members are expertly trained to ensure your safety at all stages of the flight. One thing to remember if you are feeling apprehensive is that you are not alone, our team is here to help you through the process. You will be guided through the security measures, take-off, and landing by your pilot every step of the way.

If you are still skeptical, here is a glimpse into the personal experience of SimmyH, one of our clients from United Kingdom who overcame her fear of heights aboard a Miracle Experience hot air balloon:

“I have vertigo and a fear of heights, but those fears disappear when you’re up absorbing the breath-taking views (you wear a safety belt which also helps). We saw baboons in the treetops and hippos in the river. Our pilot was amazing and brought us down safely with a smooth landing.”

If you are ready to take this step and fly over one of the most beautiful parks in the world, get in touch with us and we will gladly help you plan the adventure of a lifetime.
