Pilanesberg Hot Air Balloon Safaris

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 views are magnificent and it is one of the best experiences of a lifetime.

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 is in the Pilanesberg National Park.

The Pilanesberg Hot Air Balloon Safaris depart daily dependent on the weather and a minimum number of guests. The flight is about an hour long but the total time requirement for this experience is 4-5 hours. We will collect our guests from their lodges or hotels in the early hours of the morning and taken to the launch site.

The flight is then an hour long after which the balloon will land in the park. Sparkling wine is served to celebrate the magnificent experience after which we head to a lodge nearby for breakfast. We take our guests after breakfast back to their hotels or accommodation. These transfers are in our rates.
