Lanterns 4 Africa is the original importer of sky lanterns into South Africa. We have been importing the same quality sky lanterns from Thailand, not China, since July 2008.

These lanterns come with a wax wick which is suitable for flying at altitude (Jhb). Beware cheap imitations that don't have enough oomph to fly safely at altitude!

As seen in Hangover 2, Tangled, IPL Ceremony and various commercials!

Create a mesmerizing image when you release sky lanterns simultaneously. They are ideal for weddings, braais and other celebrations.

Sky lanterns are safer and last longer than fireworks. Simply make a wish, light a lantern and send your wish into the sky.  The result is breathtaking if you light a lantern and release along with your friends and family.
