Hot Air Ballooning

Description

The areas you fly from, and over, your host's hospitality, the quality of balloons and equipment, the expertise of your pilot, the post-flight celebration, fun and involvement, all contribute to a real ballooning experience. It is for these reasons that we fly our hot air balloons from our carefully selected venues in Gauteng, Free State, The Midlands, the Kalahari and Botswana. Our hot air balloons are smaller and more intimate, our pilots are skilled and experienced, and our hospitality provides for lots of fun and involvement. We call this REAL ballooning.

Hot air ballooning is about an intriguing blend of personal challenge, adventure, romance, the unknown, colour and fun, of getting closer to nature's elements of earth, wind, fire and firmament. If surreality has a place in life's list of experiences, then perhaps hot air ballooning best provides it. It's about experiencing mankind's oldest form of aviation, suspended animation beneath a colourful canopy of hot air - destination unknown! - momentarily leaving the loving arms of Mother Earth, outside the confines of aircraft, at one with nature.
It's gentle, it's safe, and we at Hot Air Ballooning SA are privileged to provide the very best of it.
We offer the full spectrum of hot air ballooning services throughout South Africa, subject only to capacity and venue suitability.
