Hot Air Ballooning in Africa

Witness the beauty of Africa
from inside a hot air balloon
floating over stunning landscapes.
Hot air ballooning safaris offer
a chance to view game from
far up high in a hot air balloon.

Hot Air Balloon Trips

Hot air ballooning is a great way to explore and discover a country from an entirely new perspective, and with an experienced guide on hand to point out game below or key landmarks, travellers are sure to learn a lot about the area they are ballooning over. Being high up above the landscapes of Africa in a hot air balloon is one of the most exciting and unforgettable experiences in the world.

South Africa Hot Air Ballooning

Cape Town in South Africa has a number of hot air balloon routes, including a route that goes over the Cape Winelands area. This gives a birds eye view of the beautiful wine growing regions, with endless vineyards to be seen.
