PILANESBERG NATIONAL PARK
Pilanesberg Hot Air Balloon Safaris offers a lifetime adventure in the air. Imagine: Getting up before the sunrise while on holiday, enjoying a cup of coffee to keep the morning chill at bay – why you might ask? To experience the sunrise over the Pilanesberg National Park while floating silently above the ground in a basket suspended from a hot air balloon. The view is unsurpassed, the experience bar none.
The only noise you will hear is the gas burner firing on occasion. There is no turbulence on a hot air balloon flight as the balloon drifts with the breeze. From your vantage point in the basket you will be able to see the extent of the volcanic crater which the Pilanesberg National Park is located in.
