AirVentures Hot Air Ballooning

If you are a fan of heights and early mornings than hot air ballooning is definitely one of the most exquisite and calm ways to travel. AirVentures has a base at Kloofzicht Lodge and Spa (a 40-minute drive from Joburg), which offers luxury accommodation and is set amid an awe-inspiring landscape of mountains and river, which makes for a much easier wake-up, probably close to 4am in summer months. 

It will be worth it to witness a spectacular sunrise over the landscape while drifting calmly over bushveld and game reserves that are part of the landscape of 53 000 hectare Cradle of Humankind. It's a unique way to take a safari as you'll get to spot (not guaranteed of course) four of the Big 5 (no big cats). You'll share the balloon with other awestruck people and it's a comfortable standing ride in a secure basket. There's also an ultra-luxe option of a balloon for two, of course popular for popping the big question. And hopefully, at that height the answer will always be affirmative.

At touchdown you'll be offered bubbly to celebrate your conquest of the skies and driven back to Kloofzicht Lodge for a sumptuous breakfast. We highly recommend the freshly baked scones and omelettes prepared on request. Welcoming and professional, we were as charmed by the AirVentures team as we were by the flight. 

There are four balloon ride options: the Classic flight (3 hours), Safari flight (4 hours), and options for an exclusive Classic or Safari flight for two people. All prices are on request from AirVentures.

 AirVentures works with a number of other accommodation partners in the area so there is a range of accommodation and price options available.
