Marvel as an array of hot air balloons take to the skies and we illuminate Longleat with an incredible Night Glow.  Your visit will include the incredible Safari Park drive to view over 100 species of animals roaming freely. Later you have time to explore the Sately Home (closes 18:30), take a Boat Cruise to meet the sea-lions, ride the Jungle Train, walk through the penguins, monkeys and meerkats, get lost in The Maze, explore the Adventure Castle and more....


A fleet of hot air balloons will be prepared and tethered during the afternoon, with a mass launch betwen 5pm and 6:30pm.  As the sun goes down the balloons are assembled in front of the house from 7pm with entertainment supporting a spectacular "Night Glow" inflation at 8pm - a spectacular sight.
