More about Hot Air Balloon Safari

Experience Africa from above on a balloon flight over the sunny plains of the Pilanesberg National Park near Sun City. A balloon flight will allow you to hover over the savannah as you seek out lions, giraffes and hundreds of other creatures in this bountiful ecosystem from a unique aerial perspective.

The unique vantage point provided by a balloon flight will allow you to see things normal tours might miss, as well as allowing you to soak in the stunning landscape from a totally new perspective. Upon landing, sip on champagne as you compare unforgettable sights with your fellow travellers.

My sister Leonie and I thoroughly enjoyed our hot air balloon experience in August 2013. It was definitely one of the highlights of our African trip. We saw many different animals, it was so peaceful and quiet up there! Our pilot Tony was excellent, as well as very knowledgeable. The buffet breakfast after our ride was great also. I would certainly recommend this experience.

Zulauff Florian & Sarah Vaugan

A very nice experience: a beautiful flight followed by a nice safari with a very friendly team

Andre Gillig

It was a great experience for my Japanese friends. The service was great and the trip was worth while. Just one point ....... it was really cold in the morning (even with blankets provided). Once we got the the area for the balloons it was OK (would suggest a bus or enclosed vehicle for non-summer months). Will recommend to all.
