Our hot air balloons are smaller and more intimate, our pilots are skilled and experienced, and our hospitality provides for lots of fun and involvement.

For a ballooning adventure of a lifetime - we call this real ballooning.

Hot air ballooning is about an intriguing blend of personal challenge, adventure, romance, the unknown, colour and fun, of getting closer to natureís elements of earth, wind, fire and firmament. If surreality has a place in lifeís list of experiences, then perhaps hot air ballooning best provides it.

Itís about experiencing mankindís oldest form of aviation, suspended animation beneath a colourful canopy of hot air Ė destination unknown!  - momentarily leaving the loving arms of Mother Earth, outside the confines of aircraft, at one with nature.

Hot air ballooning is gentle, itís safe, and we at Hot Air Ballooning SA are privileged to provide the very best of it.
