We arrived at 4:30 am from our hotel in Maropeng where we were staying for the weekend. We were shuttled to the take off site where we... More

The experience exceeded my expectations: perfect weather conditions, a breathtaking 360º birds eye view of the Magaliesburg countryside, a glorious sunrise, a smooth ride and a... More

Our balloon safari was very well organized and professional. Our pilot Adam was very skilled and had a keen eye to spot animals. The trip will smooth and gentle and the landing was flawless. AirVentures is top shelf organization that provides an excellent experience. I highly recommend the balloon safari.

Absolutely Incredible. The soul gets revitalised. Seeing the Sunrise over the Mountains with game below is just incomparable to anything else. Top off the morning flight with a 5 star breakfast.

Our balloon trip with Airventures was amazing and exceptionally well-organised. The pilot, Adam, was clearly very skilled. What made this flight really good was Adam's fascinating information about the area. He pointed out wildlife, birds, animal sounds, landmarks, and told us a great deal about the natural history, geology, paleontology etc of the region. Highly recommended; will go again.
