Hot air ballooning should be a must on your list of life’s experiences. A hot air balloon ride is described by most as the biggest thrill of a lifetime. That’s why we at Gibboney’s Aerostation invite you to join us aboard one of our balloon flights, trading in your earth-bound cares for the most magnificent experience of your life.

Our FAA-certified commercial pilots have a perfect safety record and use only commercially insured balloons and vehicles. In addition to balloon rides, we offer aerial advertising with company banners, managing corporate balloons, flight lessons, and crew training. We can provide tethered rides for wedding receptions, festivals and company parties. Let us design a balloon program for your company or event.


Trekking Gorillas the Mist Rwanda - View Flyer

Rwanda, “The Land of a Thousand Hills” is voted as #1 Destination in Africa on the list of the 30 Top Emerging Travel Destinations for 2020—and voted #4 overall!   Trekking the gorillas on foot in mountainous Volcanoes National Park of Rwanda takes one beyond the usual amazing safari. Spending time with a family of gorillas in their lush, green, mountainous, misty home is Life-changing.

Kenya Safari Extravaganza - View Flyer

although any safari experience is amazing, the expansive savannah and culture of Kenya left me speechless!  This safari package (either for 6 or for 2 people) is truly a bucket list item!  7 days/6 nights inclusive of airport transfers, ground transportation, luxury accommodations, and activities.  The winners will have a private vehicle with a dedicated driver and ranger the entire time. B&B and one-day excursions are included in Nairobi.  Full board and two safari game drives/day included in Masai Mara. (Refer to the attached itinerary for full details.)  The winners also will have the opportunity of visiting children at a local school.  In the several times, I have traveled with Kosen Safaris, I’ve been amazed at the incredible service and individualized attention to detail provided to the guests.

Belize for Chocolate Lovers - View Flyer

Winning bidders will enjoy 6 days/ 5nights for two people, luxury accommodations inclusive of all meals (international and local cuisine, expertly prepared).  Two chocolate-making experiences form the central theme of the program activities. The one is a local Mayan farmer and his wife who have created Ixcacao, an artisanal chocolate manufacturer.  The other, a boutique chocolate maker managing the entire process from farm to bean to bar. You will also visit a spice farm growing vanilla, cardamom and black pepper, and a host of other species. In Big Falls village the Cal family will host you and explain their traditional way of life.  Zip-lining, a visit to the local market, hiking and exploring the underwater caves, picnic lunches, and swimming in the falls are activities nearby.  This adventure can be as exciting or relaxing as the lucky bidder would like!

Cayuco Villa 33, "Las Golondrinas " Cap Cana, Dominican Republic - View Flyer

Located in the exclusive, gated community of Cap Cana, privately owned Cayuco Villa 33 beckons those seeking tropical beach, private poolside relaxation, or wanting a luxury home base for a golfing holiday.  Named “Las Golondrinas” (“The swallows”), the multi-million dollar villa is situated on the soon-to-be-completed Las Iguanas Golf Course on one side, and across the lane from the 5th hole of Punta Espada Golf Course on the other. (Both of these courses are designed by Jack Nicklaus!)

Six people will enjoy the privacy and luxury of the villa—complete with a full staff of maids, chefs,  butler/concierge.  Go out and explore the charm of the Dominican Republic, golf, hit the beach, or “stay home” and lounge by the stunning pool (with a cool mojito?). An evening of private poolside Merengue, Salsa, and Bachata dance lessons is also included!
