On a typical Balloon Safari you will be collected from your hotel and transported by a comfortable mini-bus, or you will be met at the Skeerpoort Balloon Field near Hartbeespoort Dam, just as the sun rises. Hot tea, coffee and biscuits are served, and if you like you can join in the fun to help the crew prepare the huge colourful balloon for flight in the calm and stable morning air.
Sip champagne as you go, and enjoy what some describe as the closest thing to heaven known to man - the “magical experience” of lazily drifting with the wind in a Hot Air Balloon, on a fascinating aerial sightseeing flight over the beautiful countryside bordering Gauteng and North West Province.
After landing, which can be most fun of all, your ground crew, who have been following in the “retrieve vehicle”, will collect you and drive you back to our well appointed Riverside Country Base where the staff have freshly cooked a hearty “champagne breakfast”. You will be awarded a “citation for bravery”, with due ceremony, after which transport returns you to your hotel by about mid-day.
