AirVentures Hot Air Ballooning
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 connoisseur. Revel in miles and miles of Africa as you float upwards in this majestic craft, enjoyed by enthusiasts across the world and known to be the purest and safest form of flight.
AirVentures Hot Air Ballooning offers daily balloon flights, all year round, over the Cradle of Humankind, Magaliesberg, and selected game reserves. 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.
Two flight packages, the Classic and Safari Flight experiences on either one of our larger passenger balloons or our Exclusive balloon flight for two. In line with traditional balloon flights, our Classic Flight offers guests the serene beauty of floating gently over the Cradle of Humankind or the Magaliesberg, while sipping on champagne, as the pilot allows the balloon at times to drift at tree top height and at other times ascending into the skies, offering panoramic views of the beautiful African landscape below.
We have launch sites located in the Cradle of Humankind and the Magaliesberg that have been chosen for their close vicinity to the majority of lodges in the area. Alternatively, we will launch from any lodge that is more convenient to the client, providing that the lodge has adequate space for the launching of passenger balloons.
Our Safari Flight takes the Classic flight beyond traditional boundaries, and is the ultimate in game viewing experiences. Approximately 80% of our flights have sightings of at least two of the Big Five within the hour's flight. The flight launches from the heart of the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve and usually covers a large portion of the Reserve before moving into the surrounding game reserves, offering guests unique game viewing and photographic opportunities.
