Africa from above

With an uninterrupted view of the wildlife and landscape below, you can experience the magic of a hot air balloon flight across the vast African skies.

Soar over the majestic Magaliesberg or Crocodile River Valley areas near Johannesburg, enjoy a scenic flight over Hazyview in rugged Mpumalanga, experience a game-viewing safari from the air in the Pilanesberg National Park or take a romantic air cruise above the beautiful Paarl vineyards near Cape Town. Wherever you choose to enjoy your hot air balloon experience, it’s a memory that you’ll treasure for the rest of your life.
