The novel includes many of the ingredients of Verne's later work, with plot twists of adventure, blended with technical, geographic and historic description. The book concerns the exploration of Africa, which was still not completely known to Europeans of the time, making the work even more popular for readers.
Five Weeks in a Balloon tells the story of scholar and explorer, Dr. Samuel Ferguson, who is accompanied by his manservant Joe and his friend professional hunter Richard "Dick" Kennedy.
They set out to travel across the African continent with the help of a hot-air balloon filled with hydrogen. The End of a much-applauded Speech.

They had escaped shipwreck; conflagration; Indian tomahawks and war-clubs; the fagot and the stake; nay, even the cannibal maws of the South Sea Islanders. But still their hearts beat high during Sir Francis M - - 's address, which certainly was the finest oratorical success that the Royal Geographical Society of London had yet achieved. But, in England, enthusiasm does not stop short with mere words.
It strikes off money faster than the dies of the Royal Mint itself. So a subscription to encourage Dr. Ferguson was voted there and then, and it at once attained the handsome amount of two thousand five hundred pounds. The sum was made commensurate with the importance of the enterprise. A member of the Society then inquired of the president whether Dr. Ferguson was not to be officially introduced. Bring him in!
