Experience - the unique sensation of Hot Air Ballooning in the Klein Karoo. Drifting on a gentle breeze, you will enjoy a sense of peace and tranquility; Enjoying the panoramic view of Oudtshoorn and the majestic Swartberg Mountain range, which will stay with you forever...It requires no special effort other than rising a little earlier than usual. While you enjoy a cup of coffee - we prepare the Balloon for the flight. Shortly before sunrise, you will join the pilot in the basket for take-off. Your adventure begins when we gently float away in the crisp morning air! After landing the retrieve crew will meet us with champagne. Pricing on my website

I am sorry that you were disapointed with the balloon flight. Ballooning is not about how high or low you are above ground, but the experience of being in the air in an open basket where you can see and hear everything. I did say...More

We have just returned from our flight and what an amazing experience. We met Charl and his team in local rugby fields in the centre of town, watched the balloon being set up with a coffee, before long our flight was departing, rising to over...More

Worth getting up early, this was a lovely experience with Charl and the lads! Its nice to see the town from 1km in the sky and letting the wind take control - well worth doing!

Professionally handeled, no safety concerns at all, perhaps less bells and whistles then some of the other up country operators,but then the price is more reasonable especially for kids. I would recommend this as a wonderful way to experience ballooning and to tick off from...More

Bit of an early start - but this was a magical experience. Charl took us up more than 1km into the skies above Oudtshoorn which gave us fanastic views over the whole region & allowed us to enjoy the sunrise from a unique perspective. Charl...More
