Hot Air rises encased by your balloon, basket brimming with energy as your fellow passengers enjoy the vistas unfolding as you move from the earth to your aerial adventure!

Come and experience a spectacular South African sunrise, occasionally skimming treetops or simply drifting peacefully across the skies. Hot air ballooning is a must for everyone, from the daring adventurer through to the romantic connoisseurRevel in miles and miles of Africa as you float upwards in this majestic craft, enjoyed by enthusiasts across the world.

What we offer:
Our daily balloon flights, all year-round, over the Cradle of Humankind, Magaliesberg, Pretoria and selected game reserves within our continent are pure bliss. Our flights are customised to provide fun and excitement for anyone. We cater for the romantic couple to the larger groups, as well as corporate and incentive events.

What to expect:
Your adventure begins shortly before sunrise, where upon arrival at the designated launch site, tea and coffee will be served.

Watch or participate in the process of rigging the balloon and inflating it in preparation for your flight. Your journey will now begin! As you gently ascend, you can watch the magnificent sun as it rises for another day. Absorb the sights and sounds of the countryside awakening as you silently float above. The flight will last approximately one hour. Upon landing, we will celebrate your flight in true ballooning tradition with champagne and orange juice. On your return to the launch site, breakfast will be served. Each passenger will receive a commemorative flight certificate, honouring the ballooning custom that is practised worldwide.

What to wear:
Long pants, sturdy shoes, preferably a cap or hat and layers of casual, loose-fitting clothing, so that you may readily adjust to the temperature. Don’t forget your camera or video recorder and sunblock.

Who can fly?
This is the perfect blend of adventure and romance – great for individuals, friends, couples, groups and families. We have no age limitations. Children must, however, be tall enough to see over the edge of the basket in a standing position, approximately four feet high. All passengers need to be able to stand unassisted for the duration of the flight.
