Longleat says it's annual Sky Safari festival has more balloons in the air than this year's Bristol Balloon Fiesta.
This morning around one hundred took to the sky at the Wiltshire safari park and flew towards Salisbury Plain.
Animals including penguins and lions were launched into the air.
The shapes were unfolded at first light before taking to the skies.
One notable appearance was Longleat's lion-shaped balloon which they have named 'Simbaloo'.
Flight Director Andrew Holly says the combination of Longleat's grounds and the Wiltshire countryside make this fiesta unique for those taking part.
