There are many shapes and sizes of balloons, most of them are the regular cone shaped balloons, or what is known as balloon shape. The size of the balloon is quantified with the amount of air the balloon can carry. The bigger the volume of air the more weight the balloon can hold and thus the higher number of passengers it can accommodate. There are many different sizes of balloons used for tour safaris, the common ones are:
– 100,000 cubic feet (small balloon)
– 160,000 cubic feet (medium balloon)
