In line with traditional balloon flights, our Classic Air Balloon 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 hot air balloon at times to drift at tree top height and at other times will ascend into the skies, offering guests a panoramic view of the beautiful African landscape below.
We have air balloon 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.
See our hot air balloon pictures for some spectacular photos taken from our balloon rides.

Exclusive Flight for Two
The Exclusive balloon flight offers a unique personal hot air balloon experience in one of our smaller balloons, restricted to the use of two passengers only. This exclusive balloon ride hire adds to the romance of the flight, as you are able to enjoy the experience of drifting silently across the beautiful African landscape, while sipping on champagne, in complete privacy with your partner, watching a spectacular sun rise.
You may feel free to interact with one of our experienced pilots, or you may chose to drift in silence with your loved one, giving the flight a very personal touch, and leaving you with fond memories. These balloon flights are perfect for engagements, anniversaries, birthdays, romantic getaways or any other special occasion that you would like to make an unforgettable experience. Gift voucher
